As National IPA Day was Thursday, you'll probably see a host of IPAs at your favorite breweries this weekend. Also, plenty of new double IPAs and hazy IPAs in the wild (plus a Belgian at Eureka Heights). If you're a fan of hops, this is a fine time to be alive. On to the weekly Houston beer news:

Spindletap has started releasing beer infused with coffee beans from its very own Spindletap Coffee. Co. (formerly Avid Coffee Co.). 

Astral released on Wednesday a hazy IPA fermented with Kveik yeast and dry hopped with Vic Secret. That means it's hazy and hoppy with tropical notes
