Back in 2018, their first collaboration was G. Love’s Special Sauce – Danky Dankster. Then last year the two collaborated on The Juice IPA, that was also the name of G. Love’s album that was released last year. The beer proved to be such a hit that the two have decided to re-release it in 2020, just in time for G. Love and Special Sauce tour in the Pacific Northwest.
The Juice is a super citrusy IPA that’s bright pale yellow in color with a thick head and nice lacing on the glass. Utilizing 2-Row Pale and Pilsner base malts, along with a little Carapils malt and rolled oats, we have created layered, clean malt flavors that accentuate the nearly 3 lbs per barrel of hops used in this beer. Laced with Mandarina Bavaria, Mosaic, Centennial, Amarillo and Comet hops, there are aromas that are both citrusy, slightly herbal, and of course, juicy. A medium bodied beer with a crisp bitterness, the juicy/citrus notes come through with a subtle soft mouthfeel on this beer. G. Love’s Special Sauce is a juicy and pleasantly drinkable IPA.
In a few weeks, G. Love and Special Sauce will be touring the West Coast and GoodLife Brewing will be tagging along for a handful of shows in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Wyoming.
