Breakside Brewery’s La Tormenta dry-hopped Sour returns

Breakside La tormenta label
Breakside Brewery is releasing their late fall, early winter seasonal La Tormenta dry-hopped sour this week. With a release party in Seattle tomorrow, 22oz bottles and draft of La Tormenta are hitting bottleshops, beer bars and restaurants.
La Tormenta description:
Our final seasonal bottle for the 2015 brew year is our experimental sour ale made with a unique blend of citrusy, tropical and fruity hops. Bracing-yet-balanced sour notes combine beautifully with West Coast hop flavor in this sweet and tart ale. This beer was one of our most popular offerings last year, and we’re excited to re-release it as a light and beguiling alternative to classic winter beers. Notes of blueberry, guava, grapefruit, and lemongrass are offset by a juicy acidity, medium body, and a moderate sweetness from caramel malt.Stats:
7% ABV 22 IBU
Malts: Two Row, German Acidulated and Vienna Malts, Crystal 20L
Hops: Amarillo, Equinox, Simcoe, Citra

Suggested Food Pairings:
Panna cotta with pre- served fruits and coconut; Pork belly and watercress salad; Duck chawan mushi; Carolina-style pulled pork; New Orleans- style BBQ prawns; Blackened catfish with grits
