What is your favorite summer beer? Some people like to drink American Light Lagers and some like to drink Hefeweizen but most people have a certain beer they like to drink during the summer. Aurora Hoppyalis from Karl Strauss Brewing Company is a San Diego style IPA that has been blowing up the market since its release in April making it a top contender as a best beer for summer.
Aurora Hoppyalis has done just that, cemented itself as one the most refreshing and drinkable IPA’s in the market today – a perfect combo for the best beer for summer.
It is a 7% ABV IPA that is crisp, clean and refreshing. Robust flavors of tropical fruits, pineapple, pine and tangerine drift through the crisp dry finish. The beauty about this beer is that its dry finish doesn’t leave a harsh bitterness which makes you crave this beer even more.
Not really sure about this beer? You don’t have to take my word for it. This beer has been getting a lot of press recently on many craft beer rating sites. Check out San Diego Magazine’s “The Beer Issue”.
It names Aurora Hoppyalis as one of the top 5 IPA’s. Thrillist compiled a list of the best new beer releases coming out of San Diego and Aurora Hoppyalis was on that list. All About Beer Magazine has it as “Highly Recommended” and A Pint of Hoppiness says it’s “an absolute trip to hop heaven…”.
If that isn’t enough to peak your interest, it also won a bronze award at the Great American Beer Festival 2015.
Karl Strauss beers are only distributed in the state of California. They have only sold beer in California for as long as they have existed and pride themselves on keeping their beer as local as they can to keep the freshest beer possible in the market.
You can find Aurora Hoppyalis in many major supermarkets, Bevmo, Total Wine and more. You will also find it at Karl Strauss’ own brewery restaurants in Southern California.
I encourage you to escape from your normal summertime beer and give Aurora Hoppyalis a try, you will be pleasantly surprised and may even find a new best beer to enjoy out in the warm weather during those backyard BBQ’s. Expand your palate and enjoy as many different beers as you can.
Enjoy the best of life, drink only the best beer!
