…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.

Catch you on the flip side IPA

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.

Grace & Grit DIPA

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.

Ghost in the Machine

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.

Shiner Oktoberfest

Quite happy with the 5.7% ABV marzen-style beer from a Shiner, TX. Malty but not too sweet, clean finish.

Elevator

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.

Flying Tiger Jucee

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.

Fast Food

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.

Screaming Dawn

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.
