A yummy DDH IPA from North Park Beer and Moksa Brewing. Clocking in at a respectable 8.5% ABV.
My first time trying the cherry version of this. Strong sweet cherry flavor over the regular tart-sweet of the Duchesse de Bourgogne. I’m enjoying it. None of the notes of wood.
I was told when I ordered that it was a good choice. That the German brewery, Frau Gruber, makes good juicy and hazy IPAs. I agree. 8.1% ABV, nice notes of tropical fruit with great hop flavors, light body, and clean finish.
A quite enjoyable double dryhopped double IPA from Franconian brewery, Blech Brut. Found in a craft beer store, Die Bierothek Bamberg.
Augustin Brauerei, Munchen. 6.3% ABV. Something for the train.
Quick beer in Chicago. Like order, get, oh, we’re boarding…chug and leave. Belching while speed-walking to gate. Fist City from Chicago’s Revolution Brewing. A tasty 5.5% ABV American pale ale. I liked it, light body, nice balance with clean, crisp finish. I’ll have time for more next time we’re passing thru.
It tastes exactly like it sounds. A sake- weiss beer hybrid… from the minds of Setting Sun Sake and Thunderhawk Alements. Yumm.
Tastes exactly like it smells. Piney and resinous over a sweet malt base. Long hop finish. All that wrapped up in a 12.5% ABV solution.
L to R – Labyrinth Within, Crimson Lotus and Worlds Away…yum.
… like malt, water and yeast? Whether trying to convey a message or just running out of beer names, I was happy with it. Piney and resinous hop nose, light body with good hop flavors and crisp dry finish.
