Some things in life are just guaranteed. If you're a little bit of a pessimist, death and taxes are two such examples. We like to look on the brighter side of things here at Hop City, however, and when we hear "new year-round release" from Creature Comforts, we know we're guaranteed to get something awesome.
Bigger Dreams is a hazy IPA (6.8%) from the local pillar that produced the once hoarded secret of Atlanta beer nerds (Tropicalia). Even though Creature Comfort products are now mass produced and easy to find, their seasonal and limited releases still draw out dedicated followers en masse. Bigger Dreams has kept the trend alive as our first drop last week sold out very quickly. (Not to worry though, we're back in stock!)
The new hazy IPA is a sort of mashup between a New England IPA and a West Coast IPA. Characteristics of low bitterness and big, tropical, stone fruit hop aroma typical of New England versions combine with the light refreshing drinkability so often associated with the West coast style. The marriage is a winner. Bigger Dreams is juicy, bright, super aromatic and likely to lay claim to a permanent parcel of shelf space in your fridge.
Want to try it for free? Yeah, we said free! Creature Comforts will be pouring draft samples of Bigger Dreams and handing out schwag at our Hop City Krog location THIS Friday, February 24 (hint: tomorrow!) from 5:00 - 7:00 pm as well as next Friday, March 3 at Hop City West End. Do you really need any other reason?
