My Beer Pix

A visual tribute to beer and the people who love it.

Community Mosaic IPA

Unfortunately I’m not getting the tropical notes I would normally associate with a Mosaic hopped IPA. Otherwise a nice IPA at 8.6% ABV and 85 IBU. Nicely balanced with pleasant lingering hop bitterness.

0

Vigilante IPA

Arrived at Bridger Brewing at 7:55pm, sat at 7:58 and per Montana law last beer served at 8pm. Immediately ordered 2 IPAs and not disappointed. Well..sorta disappointed that I didn’t review the beer list a bit and pick 2 different beers, but happy with what I have. Old school IPA with the malt body to […]

0

Stowaway IPA

Pleasantly surprised. Piney and resinous with nice hop flavors/bitterness and clean finish. All that and 6.3% ABV. From Bozeman, Montana’s Julius Lehrkind Brewing.

0

Snake River Brewery Tasters

They were out of the barrel-aged horchata beer, and couldn’t get a taste of the Zonkers imperial stout as it was only in a can.  Otherwise, top to bottom list starts just past 3-oclock with Jenny front right.  Nitro beer ain’t in the pic.

0

Strange Haze IPA

I’m getting nice tropical fruit notes of pineapple and mango from local Highlander She grabbed the Old Faithful Ale, an easy drinking ale more red than golden, and virtually zero bitterness.

Fish On! Juicy…

…a refreshing pale ale (on R), from Kettlehouse Brewing, for me and Salmon Fly Honey Rye, from Madison River Brewing, for the lady.

Yuppie Hammer NEIPA…

…from Outlaw Brewing front and center, the Juice Double IPA (R) from Madison River Brewing and Cold Smoke Scottish Ale (L) from Kettlehouse Brewing.

Che, Che, Check it out…

…wha, wha, what’s it all about? My last can of Check Your Hops. Need, need, need to get some more, but first, first get my ass up off the floor.

Free Day 2020

Flavor-wise, an unfiltered double IPA with piney and resinous hop characteristics and malty base with no residual sweetness. Discretion Brewing’s annual release in celebration of independence day. With numbers like 8.9% and 74 IBU… what more could you ask for? Oddly worded on the can.  Double hazy implies double the haze, unlike a hazy double […]

DDH United IPAp

Super juicy murky IPA from Pure Project.  Comes with a nose of tangerine and pineapple, and a pillowy-soft mouth-feel.  All that and 6.9% ABV.

0

NPBC 4

North Park Beer Co’s 4th anniversary beer is a super juicy hazy triple IPA with nice notes of pineapple and mango.  Though you can smell the alcohol I would not have guessed 10% ABV. It’s like a prize for being good today.

0

Hop Fu!

It’s been a while since my last Hop Fu! Worked for me…pale malt body, piney and resinous hop flavors, with a dry finish with lingering butter. Yep…drank it and liked it. Could use another if’n we didn’t buy just one..

0

Fort Point Villager

Light body with piney hop flavors and dry bitter finish. Not my fav, but no so bad to dump it.

0

Untitled Art All Together

Mmmm…tasty 6.5% IPA. In collaboration with Other Half Brewing to support hospitality industry. Just doing my part.

0

BA Nyctophobia…

…with orange and cocoa nibs, by the fire pit.  Whoa…aged nicely.  On draft I thought the orange was overwhelming.  Though still present, it’s less so. More wood and bourbon notes, roasty while maintaining the nice boozieness quality. The 14.2% ABV helps with that.

0

Stratacadabra

A tasty double dry hopped west coast IPA. 7.4% ABV. Yum

0

Fieldwork Logic Gate

Looks more like a juice heavy mimosa than a beer. Sniff…A nose of citrus. Sniff-sip…super juicy up front…sniff…sip… followed by mild, almost spicy..sip…black pepper-ish hop bitterness that quickly dissipates….then bam… you need another beer.

0

Cosmic Omnibus

A delish hazy IPA collaboration from Alesmith and Modern Times. Tropical fruits on the nose with soft mouth-feel and very mild, almost a mild black pepper like, bitterness on the finish that dissipates quickly.

0

Shhh….Secret Secrets

Super juicy with a bodacious nose and palate, all packed it a tiny 16oz can of goodness. Quite good.

0

Party Cup

A 5% lager made using Mosaic hops. Though not much of a fan of lagers in general, in the last few months we’ve tried some really good ones and wanted to give it a try. It’s ok, but nothing great. I won’t dump it, but likely won’t buy again.

South of Hazin’

A refreshing hazy from TapRoom Beer Co.  Nice hoppy nose, but lower bitterness than you would think based on the nose.  Bitterness lingers a bit but finishes clean.  Good enough for me to have another.  The 7% ABV ain’t bad either.

0

Chocodial n Soundcheck

Chocodial Rock, an 8% ABV chocolate forward stout, for the lady, and Soundcheck with Nelson, a 7.4% ABV IPA with, you guessed it, Nelson hops, for me. Yum. Beautiful evening. Happy to see the patio full. We love this place.

0

Strata Pale Ale

Mmm…tasty. Light body. Great hop flavors. Clean finish. All that and only 5.4% ABV. From Alvarado Street Brewery.

0

Chasing Mosaic

Citrusy fruit on the nose. Flavors of stonefruit, melon and citrus. Mild bitterness that finishes clean. All that and 6.4% ABV.

0

Scorpius Morchella

Whoa…a delish double IPA from Toppling Goliath. The pale malt body lets the nice hop characteristics shine through. Pleasant lingering bitterness. Hmm…no ABV on can? Would guess 8%-ish.

0

Heyday Modern IPA

Big ‘ol 19.3oz can of 5.8% ABV from Great Divide Strong piney and resinous hops over a pale malt body. Finishes dry with lingering bitterness.

0

Happy Independence Day!

We’ve been saving a few of these cans for today. Though likely the best for all that it was canceled, we missed not having the the Bird Rock neighborhood Beaumont Avenue parade. Today would have been the 41st year. Cheers

0

Thorn St. Pine Hallows

A tasty 7% ABV west coast IPA from Thorn Street Brewing. Piney and resinous, nice hop bitterness with clean finish.

0

Rowdier and Proudier..

…a 9% ABV old school, malty but balanced, double IPA from Decatur, GA’s, Three Taverns Craft Brewery for me, and Parrot Vibes, a 4.8% ABV POG tart ale from Oakland, CA’s Temescal Brewing, that she wishes was 9%, for the lady.

0

Burgeon Carlsbad Crush

Aptly named for this 5.8% mosaic pale ale. Expect it to work well with Seabasstropub…or by itself…or with sake…

0

Cosmic Omnibus

Juicy 6.8% ABV collaboration hazy IPA from Alesmith and Modern Times. Enjoying responsibly at 50% capacity Alesmith taproom.

0

The Incredible Honk

Looks like my favorite morning breakfast beverage with a flavor almost like fresh-squeezed with pulp-like substances added. Ok..so no pulp-like substances and slight less opaque. Not familar with gooseberry smell or flavor. Smells like tart fruit with notes of pineapple and citrus. Flavor is juicy with notes of passion fruit and citrus. With the exception […]

0

Double Dust Bus

Ok…not bus. Just juicy 8.8% ABV murky IPA….in a park-like setting.

0

Super Beta and CBS

Pure Project Super Beta, a delish pillowy-soft murky IPA, with a side car of Canadian Breakfast Stout…mmm.

0

de garre

Sooo good. When the world opens back up we need to make another trek to de garre in Bruge. Miss the bowl of rustic cheese.

0

Hammer Chain DIPA

A piney, resinous and malty 8% DIPA from Fort Collins, CO’s Odell Brewing. The maltly base has an underlying sweetness giving it characteristics similar to a barleywine, and English barleywine where hop bitterness is more subdued.

0

Juice by the Pool

At this rate there is no way I’ll still have any cans left on the 4th of July. Gonna need to pick up some more.

0

Duck Foot Brewing Tasters

R to L. Duck Force 5, their 5th Anniversary 11% ABV triple IPA, Goofy-Regular, 7.4% ABV hazy IPA, Wookiee Roar, 5.7% ABV American amber, and Drink This or the Bee Dies, 6.5% ABV golden honey ale.

0

Rockstar Virtual Beer Fest 3

Our fav…The Bruery Wit the Funk. Light, refreshing, tart and funky. True, it does have the advantage of being foeder aged…assuming you like that kind of thing. Many other weren’t far behind…Schöner Tag hefe, Broken Skull, Tabula Rosa, Chief Peak… We didn’t participate in fest 2, but found this beer selection better than the first.

0

Waffling Over Pastries

An 11.3% ABV imperial pastry porter from North Park Beer Co. Sweet malty nose with loads of maple syrup and chocolate. Once it warms a bit, the maple is more noticeable over the sweet chocolate malt flavors. Finishes with warming bitterness and a sticky residue. And that was the end of Michele.

0

Study Break

A 10% ABV pastry stout made with good stuff. Though it doesn’t outright say so, it seems heavily inspired by the snickers candy bar. Smells of sweet chocolate and peanuts. Flavor does not disappoint, though you need to allow it to warm to get the peanut flavor. As expected, it finishes just as sweet as […]

0

Socks & Sandals

A 6.6% ABV foggy IPA from Humble Sea Brewing Co. Nice hoppy nose. Flavor seems thin, with virtually no bitterness and a somewhat dry finish. Decent, but nothing to write home about.

0

Pure West

A delish 6.5% ABV west coast IPA. Piney and resinous, crisp dry finish…damn good.

0

In Good Company

Much better.  A 8.5% hazy DIPA collaboration beer from Moksa Brewing Co. and Casa Agria Specialty Ales.  Super juicy hop nose with notes of pineapple and melon.  Mouthfeel/flavor is not as sweet as the nose implies…it’s more dry and hop flavors have a black pepper quality that dissipates quickly after you swallow. Sip, sip, and […]

0

Matcha IPA

Pouring and seeing the bright green it reminded me of when a friend brought back Romulan Ale from the Star Trek Experience restaurant and bar in Las Vegas. Those happened to be blue and drinking it made your lips and mouth blue after a half a glass. Your teeth were blue by the second bottle. […]

0

Daiquiri Island

Quite impressed with this 5.5% ABV strawberry and banana kettle sour beer from Alavardo Street Brewery. Sweet banana and strawberries on the nose over the tart malt base, with a more-tart-than-sweet flavor that follows through nicely. Flavors and mouth-feel are full bodied, and not thin, which seems often the case with lower ABV beers. Not […]

0

All Together

Enjoyed with friends. Light bodied, with nice hop flavors.

0

Head Banger

… you know that shit can’t be good for your brain. A fun song and a 4.7% generic lager from Amplified Ale Works.

0

Cashmere Colada DDH IPA

A tasty DDH coconut IPA, clocking in at 8.5% ABV, from North Park Beer Co. The nose is sweet and fruity. At first more heavy on the coconut, but that mellowed and balances with nice pineapple notes. Flavor is on the sweet side, with additional notes of melon and virtually no bitterness.

0

Yay…Juicy Bits..

..to go. I’ll have to take their word for it on the hazy aspect, but nice juicy hop flavors over a pale malt body. Plus it’s got that 6.7% ABV thing going for it.

0

Fuzzy Logic

A 7.1% ABV hazy peach IPA from Bottle Logic. Nose is sweet malts and peaches. Taste is not sweet, or at least not as sweet as the nose implies. Taste more like a fruited cream ale than a IPA of any kind. No bitterness. Not getting the juicy aspects I would like. But a clean […]

0

Zanzibar Chocolate Ice Cream Stout

Tastes like chocolate milk. Not like chocolate milk beer..like creamy wholesome chocolate milk…with no ABV…not 8% chocolate milk, which is what it is. Sipped directly from the decanter. Maybe that was part of it. Wanna try again but poured into a glass. A delish, desserty, collaboration from Untitled Art and Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Co.

0

Brainbox Pollution

Yum. Nice juicy hop nose. Flavor is sweeter than expected, with little to no bitterness. 32oz went down waaay to fast. All that and clocked in at 8.5% ABV. What’s not to love.

0

Electropical

Some 6% ABV hydration after a quick mow. I enjoyed it. Plenty of citrus forward hop characteristics on the nose and tastebuds. Some nice hop bitterness up front, that follows through…but miraculous, like poof, is gone once you swallow. Sierra Nevada are damn magicians. Now you taste it, now you don’t. I can see that […]

0

Jam Don’t Shake

I found this 17% ABV imperial stout collaboration between Grimm and Other Half waaaay too salty. Yes, it’s got some good fruit tarty jamminess, and sweet maltyness. But…even after letting it warm I felt the salt was overwhelming. I didn’t get any peanut butter, or for that matter, any other recognizable nut butter, flavors at […]

0

Industrial Accident

An tasty 8% ABV IPA from Fall Brewing. If I recall from when I picked it out of the line-up, it’s a hazy double IPA…but, hell… that was close to a month ago. Nose is resinous hops. Flavor is more balanced, well…for an IPA, malty but not sweet. Nice hop flavors with low bitterness.

0

Willfull delusion of false perception

Damn….older than I thought… …but held up fairly well. First sips had notes of candied fruits in the juicyness, but less so as it warms. Nose becomes more resinous, malt flavors more noticable, with mild bitterness on the finish. I’d love to have tried this earlier.

0

Arizona Light Lager

Something I would have never bought myself, and surprised that I like it. Light body, nicely balanced, zero bitterness and clean finish. From Tempe, AZ, Huss Brewing.

0

MDRN HSTRY IPA

Sadly my last can. Wish I had an extra for last Tuesday virtual happy hour/ beer share. So good. The cans have been way more juicy than the draft version that I had… when was that. Send like months ago. Stoked to hear Amplified Ale Works PB and East Village are re-opening their kitchens for […]

0

little juice smoothie

An apt name. Nose is fruity, like a mixed fruit smoothie. Flavor is a juicy NE IPA with notes of strawberry. It’s not overly sweet and has mild bitterness on the finish. All that and 6.5% ABV. I’m enjoying it. Huh…65 IBU? That’s a higher number than I would have guessed.

0

A finite quantity of…

…an opaque solution. Infinite Content. Quite good. A bit more bitterness than the previous Force of Nature. To lazy to pick my ass up off the slouch-couch and see what the ABV is, but would guess in the 7% range.

0

Force of Nature

A delish, juicy/ citrusy and murky 6.5% ABV IPA from the fine folks at Pure Project.

0

What else?…the Logical Choice

Of all the beers in the fridge, this was the logical choice. A balanced 10% ABV triple IPA collaboration between Alesmith and Pizza Port Brewing.

0

Star Cloud

A 6.8% ABV IPA made in the hazy style, from the fine folks at Modern Times Beer. Flowery-like hop flavors, soft mouth feel, nice bitterness that slips away urging you to have another sip…then poof… the beer is gone. Darn Star Cloud is blocking the sunset.

0

MRDN HSTRY IPA

Amplifing at home. Whoa…more tropical notes up front than I recall. Fruity, but not sweet or overly malty. Nice hop balance with pleasant, though somewhat mild, hop bitterness. Need to grab more next Saturday.

0

Isle of Splendor

This double dry-hopped hazy IPA from the fine folks a North Park Beer is like a “Modern Times” romance. Bountiful bouquet of hops entwined with pillowy-soft mouth-feel and juicy wet finish. Oh, yeah.

Electrocution IPA

When you can’t enjoy it at the source, you do it elsewhere. Tasty.

This Is Not My Beautiful Wife

Light body pale with good hop flavors and mild bitterness. Quite nice. ….Once in a life time, as the days go by… or same as it ever was?

Tikicito

A surprisingly impressive offering from North Park Beer Co. inspired by the tiki rum drink, the Painkiller. The imperial Berliner Weisse smells fruity, sweet and tart. Flavor is tart with pineapple and coconut. Tastes so…fresh.

0

Amplified Ale Works

Go support great folks and beer. Amplified Ale Works is open today (Saturday, 11 Apr 2020) from noon to 5pm. We grabbed 4-paks of their flagship IPA, Electrocution, and MDRN HSTRY, a tasty IPA made in collaboration with the local namesake band. Also grabbed a growler of Stratacaster, a delish hazy IPA and growler of […]

0

Chocolate Cherry Icing On The Cake

An 11% ABV pastry stout from Grimm of New York. Can was dated, but held up pretty well. Had to warm up before I noticed cherry flavor. Mostly flavors of dark chocolate, sweet with a roasty, somewhat bitter, finish. Good, but it ain’t no Cocosauras Rex.

0

Proxima

Says hazy india pale ale right on there can… which it is. 7.5% ABV too. It has a nose of resinous hops over a light mbv alt base. Flavor is more west-coast style IPA, but more mild and with a softer mouth feel. She thought more watery…not sure that’s it. Finish has very low bitterness. […]

0

Cocosaurus Rex

A delish dessert-like 12.5% ABV pastry stout made with vanilla beans and coconut from the fine folks a Pure Project. Well worth the struggle a couple months back carrying it in the back pocket of my bike jersey for the 10+ miles or so. Coats the mouth like like oil. Time for a nap…after I […]

Liquid Clouds

The word Abnormal makes think of the movie Young Frankenstein. Specifically, when Dr. Frankenstein/Frokensteen is asking Igor about the brain he was sent to retrieve, Igor replies “it’s Abby something.. “. “Abby? Abby who?” “Abby….Normal. Yes, that’s it. Abby Normal.” Oh yeah…beer. The beer is good. The nose is sweet…a mix of guava, citrus, pineapple, […]

So Long Sunshine

Quite enjoyable. Pale malt body with pleasant hop flavors, solf mouth-feel and mild bitterness. From the fine folks at Pottland, OR’s, Hopworks Urban Brewery.

Surfari India Pale Ale

I enjoyed this 7.2% ABV IPA from Pizza Port Brewing. Grassy citrus notes up front, pale malt body with pleasing lingering bitterness on the finish, urging me to take another sip… then it was gone.

0

Hipster Mocha Latte

An 11% ABV pastry stout from Wild Barrel. Sweet, smooth and sticky all the way through. Like a double helping of super fudge ice cream topping on a bite of mocha ice cream. Need to counter the on set of diabetes with…hmmm.

0

Mandatory Fun…

…at home; and who doesn’t want some fun, mandatory or not. The beer, a nice 9.3% double IPA from the fine folks at Hess Brewings. Piney and citrusy nose, and the flavor doesn’t disappoint. Yum.

0

Scoobert

Quite happy with this 6.5% ABV IPA from the fine folks at Brouwerij West. Pale malt body allows nice hop flavors to take front stage. Juicy orange/citrus forward, with mild piney and resinous notes on the finish. Can is a bit old

0

Dulce De Leche Stout

An 8% ABV collaboration beer from Waunakee, Wisconsin’s Untitled Art and Chicago’s Cruz Blanca Brewery. The smell makes me think Hershey’s chocolate syrup over the sweet malty nose of a robust porter…quite sweet. Likely needs to warm up a bit, as not much going on at first. Not sweet, but a more balanced chocolatey porter […]

0

Juicy

A decent NE IPA offering from Fresno’s Full Circle Brewing Co. Nice citrus notes, soft mouth feel and low bitterness all wrapped up in 6.6% ABV solution. My first Full Circle beer. I need to look into their other offerings.

0

Dry School Hop Out DIPA

Going deep into the ‘ol beer drawer. Piney and resinous, medium malt body with good lingering hop bitterness. Quite impressed by how well this has held up. I would have thought it would be more barleywine-ish, with softening hop profiles. Can time-stamped 6-Years Down, 11/01/18, so upwards of 9.3 years in dog beers.

0

Saturhaze IPA

Working through the “shelter in place” stock, and found this can in there beer drawer. It was cold out of the drawer, but it’s like I took a warm session IPA and poured over ice to get it cold, and then let the ice melt.  Not necessarily bad, but seems a bit watered down.  It […]

0

Celebrate Good Times…

…at home. Found what appears to be my last one in the back of da fridge…yay beer!

0

Neverending Haze IPA

Nice piney and resinous nose, unfortunately the flavor doesn’t follow thru. A bit watery. Could be that I chose poorly to try after a full flavored, 7.5% ABV, west-coast IPA. I really should have a drinking plan establish before I start, instead of fumbling through it as I do. But…at 4% ABV, you can almost […]

0

South of the Pier IPA

A delish 6.5% collab IPA from the fine folks at Coronado Brewing and Pizza Port Brewing, made in the west-coast style.

0

La Fin Du Monde

Wasn’t until pouring it that I thought how appropriate in our current situation. The Dirtbombs – La Fin Du Monde

0

Dopeur

Seems more like an unfiltered west coast IPA. Nothing juicy about it. Dry finish with lingering bitterness. Almost a chalky-coating-on-my-tongue kinda finish. Didn’t stop me from finishing it. Hmmm…Dope-U-R… think they are trying to tell me something?

0

Coconut Almond Macaron

An 8.2% IPA from Decadent Ales, inspired by the classic French dessert. Sweet nose of coconut and beer. Flavor is like a NE IPA with soft mouth-feel, but with notes of coconut. Mild bitterness on the finish. Not getting much almond. Surprisingly drinkable.
