…at home. Quite nice 7.5% ABV hazy IPA. Kegs gone and down to cans… but cans travel well. This is one of two I stuffed into my bike jersey before heading home. Get them while you can.
A decent 6.5% ABV collaboration beer offering from the fine folks at Karl Strauss and Societe Brewing Company, made in the west-coast style.
A 6% clean hoppy lager with crisp dry finish.
Quite good. Resinous hop nose that follows through with flavor. Nice balance with pleasant bitterness…not overwhelming and doesn’t linger too long, but enough to want another sip. The 8% doesn’t hurt. Though per the back, my orange juice glass is not considered proper glassware. Maybe it’s better in proper glassware.
Parish Brewing Co.s 8.5% IPA is the best locally brewed beer I’ve had so far on this visit. A nose of resinous hops over a biscuit malt base. A green, citrusy hop bitterness with clean finish. No way I would have guessed 8.5% ABV. The light body is deceiving.
Quite happy with the 5.7% ABV marzen-style beer from a Shiner, TX. Malty but not too sweet, clean finish.
A 5.5% ABV dry-hopped saison with peaches from Whiner Beer Co. Quite nice. Light-bodied, Belgian yeast-like esters with citrus notes and a dry finish.
A juicy pale ale from Shreveport’s Flying Tiger Brewing. I liked it, but didn’t find it very juicy. Nose was of grassy hops, medium bodied with mild bitterness and somewhat dry finish. 6% ABV was a nice aspect as well.
From Chicago’s Whiner Beer Co., this 5.5% ABV “foggy IPA” has some off notes. Nose of bandaid adhesive which cares through to the astringent flavor. Sorry, but had to dump…yuck.
I enjoyed it. Nice citrus hop notes, with mild bitterness reminiscent of grapefruit peel. 6.4% ABV. Imported into Louisiana from Wisconsin’s Wild Mind Artisan Ales.
