At first, the nose and the flavor didn’t really add up. With the pale malt body and grapefruit citrus nose from the dry-hopping, I didn’t expect such a piney and grassy hop bitterness. Add to that the 8% ABV, and it was like a NE IPA on steroids….less the hazy. Very good, but not […]
Grassy with notes of citrus and pine. The malt bill accentuates nice hop flavors while not adding undesirable sweetness. Tasty. On draft at Pizza Port Solana Beach.
Deceptively smooth and balanced for 9.9% ABV.
With a big fruity nose and pleasant hop bitterness, I found this newer offering from Mother Earth Brew Co quite enjoyable. Plus it’s got that 7.5% ABV thing going for it.
One of three TRVE Brewing beers still on draft at Pizza Port OB. I started with the sour oak-aged dry-hopped saison. Tasty.
At Pizza Port Solana Beach. Hot AF in here…but good beer makes it tolerable. Without the beer it’s like a weight-loss program.
A beer from Maine’s Peak Organic Brewing Company I actually like. An enjoyable dry-hopped pale ale with citrus and floral hop notes and pleasent mild bitterness over a pale malt body. Hmm…no ABV on the can.
Found in the fridge behind some forgotten condomints. I’m guessing 7 to 9 years old. It’s held up surprisingly well.
35 miles into today’s bike ride and a stop to fuel was necessary. 5.8% ABV Strawberry Shores for the lady and 8% ABV Joocy Jay IIPA for me. Should be enough for the approx 11 miles home.
Very happy with this Belgian-style strong golden ale. Mildly sweet up front and nice pale malt and Belgian yeast flavors hide the 9% ABV. Finish has the same light sweetness, which quickly disappates.
