Episode 16 is a double beer review of Coriega Beer Company, a brewery in planning (BIP) in north Phoenix that recently started brewing and canning at Throne Brewing in Glendale & Peoria.

Matt samples Beyond the Depths, an IPA that has the bitter and tropical notes reminiscent of a classic Stone West Coast IPA.

Gundecked Blonde features a slight toast with the right hop balance to be light and crushable. Johann crushed that one!
