New Glory’s Listen Up & Galactic Worms

Listen Up! Double IPA

After making a big impression over a year ago I was stoked to see New Glory release Listen Up Double IPA again. Once again Listen Up provides a brilliant Citra hops showcase. They changed up the description on the can a bit:

American Double IPA brewed with 100% Citra Hops and fermented with our expressive ale yeast. Packaged in its purest form, unfined and unfiltered.

I’m probably just susceptible to suggestion but I really noticed the yeast characteristics this time around, in the best way possible. Not overly estery, just some added complexity to this delightful brew.

Galactic Worms IPA

The original Gummy Worms was another favorite from New Glory, so I was very curious to see what they did with the Galactic version. Here’s the description from New Glory’s Instagram post:

This one is exactly what it sounds like…our Galactus DIPA and Gummy Worms Chewy Pale Ale made a baby! One of our brewers loves to blend these two when they’re both on tap, so we decided to do the work for him in the tank and spice it up a bit. With a wheat malt heavy base, we blasted this beer with Citra, Galaxy and Amarillo all throughout the brew process. And yes, it’s hazy!

They’re not kidding about that haze. The “chewy” mouthfeel from Gummy Worms definitely carries over to this version, as does the big fruity hop flavor.
