Not sure how long this has been in the beer drawer. I’m sure the hops have mellowed a bit, but still quite nice. Nose was a mix floral and pine, which followed through on taste. Nice hop bitterness that lingered just long enough to encourage another sip. Would not have guessed 8.5% ABV.
Super fruity juicy nose the follows through nicely with the flavors. Soft mouth-feel and mild hop bitterness. Quite happy with it.
A delish DDH IPA made in the NE style from Other Half Brewing. I had no idea that an Oat Cream IPA even existed in this world. Pungent, juicy hop nose, creamy mouth-feel with nice hop flavors and no bitterness. Would have preferred pouring into a glass, but was not really an option at the […]
Amplified Ale Works delish 8% double IPA.
…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.
