New Belgium Brewing Folly Pack

Another entry in my occasional series of posts about variety 12-packs…

Folly Pack from New Belgium Brewing

Folly Pack from New Belgium Brewing,
Fort Collins, Colorado

Where I found it: On the beer shelves at the Harris Teeter in Arlington, Virginia.

Beers: Two bottles each of “Folly Favorites”:

  • Rampant Imperial IPAFat Tire, a well-balanced session Amber — simply a classic (5.2%)
  • Ranger, an American-style IPA brewed for hopheads (6.5%, 70 IBU)
  • Rampant a well-built Imperial IPA (8.5%, 85 IBU)
  • 1554 Black Lager, this black brew “uses a lager yeast strain and dark chocolaty malts to redefine what dark beer can be” (5.6%)

And four bottles of a “Revival Beer”:

  • Giddy Up, a unique ale brewed with Lemon Peel and infused with Espresso (6.0%)

Best Beer: Tough choice for best beer in this mixed 12-pack. I’ve never had a beer like the amazing Giddy Up. But but I love IPAs, especially Imperial IPAs. Ranger is one of my favorite IPAs and Rampant ramps it up even more.

This is a outstanding 12-pack. It would be better if New Belgium replaced two Giddy Ups, with their Tripel.
