Modern Brewery | Green Goliath

Modern Brewery

ABV: 9.0%

Modern Brewery is a relatively new face on the St. Louis beer scene, having celebrated their one-year anniversary this year. But their brews are already creating a buzz. I’ve had several local beer lovers tell me about Green Goliath DIPA. A few months ago, I finally got a small taster of it and quickly understood the reason for the excitement. It rocks. So I was stoked that upon filling my first Synek bag a couple weeks later at a local bar, The Gramophone, to see Modern dominating the taps. Instead of a taster, I treated myself to an entire gallon.

Green Goliath
It pours a nice hazy orange and is stacked with citrusy goodness. For a relatively big beer at 9%, it doesn’t beat you up over it. Easy drinking, smooth and silky. The hops are front and center with just enough malt balancing it. It’s certainly a beer that benefits from being super fresh, to get that hoppiness just right. And when my wife, who likes hard cider and shandy beers, asks for a full glass instead of just a sip from mine – there’s no doubt it’s a special brew.
