Year of Beer Paintings – Day 79

Today is Spring Equinox – the beginning of spring!  Cheers to six months of more than twelve hours of daylight!  Today’s painting is of Alaskan Brewing Company’s Pilot Series Jalapeño Imperial IPA.  You may wonder why I would paint such a rogue beer.  Well, because the label is so pretty, and this beer was particularly amazing paired with Alaskan Cod tacos last night!  It is totally peppery but not too overpowering.  The Jalapeño flavor hit me in the back of the throat with a little tickle, but the overall mouthfeel was similar to the tannin taste of a green pepper.  I was surrounded by peppers in the kitchen where I tasted this brew, so maybe I was thrown a bit by the whole taco night experience, however, I thought the Jalapeño IPA held its own.  I would drink it again, especially on taco night.

To Alaskan Brewing and its Pilot Series with the newest freshest oddities that are exciting and enjoyable!

The original painting sold. You can purchase a limited-edition print at my Etsy Shop.
