2. Lanikai Brewing Company
New Beers:

Don Juan
10.4% ABV, 30 IBU. Chilis, lime, cumin, coriander and aged Herradura tequila barrels.

Appearance: Light copper/deep amber with a subtle touch of redness with a beautiful off-white head that lingers and laces. Clarity is nearly perfect. This beers nearest category would be a California Strong ale, but with less bitterness and more wheat.

Aroma: Ajillo chili and cumin/lime warm the nose before the taste. Deep complex spice notes linger throughout. Hints of mescal like woody spice and maple from the American Oak are subtle.

Taste: A rich and balanced cumin and pepper combination hit the forefront of the palate while the coriander and lime citrus cleanse leaving a soft malty aftertaste with hints of Herrereda tequila(this tequila ages 11 months on American Oak and considered in top 25 tequilas in the world) Body and slight alcohol warming add to the beers richness. It finishes dry and complex from the balance of spices, peppers and tequila.

Food Pairings: This beer is designed for food! Carne Asada, grilled spicy shrimp, Mole, Shisito peppers, Roasted peppers, Mexican pork carnitas, tamales, enchiladas, or simply a plate of nachos.
