New England Style Double IPA

I found this 8.4% ABV hazy beer from Temecula’s Black Market Brewing decent, but nothing outstanding. Pours hazy with a resinous hop nose. Flavor has more than a mild bitterness and finishes dry.

Patterns Double IPA

Quite happy with this 8.4% ABV DIPA from Alaska’s Anchorage Brewing Company. It pours hazy, but with pronounced hop bitterness it’s not really a NE-style IPA.


Toasted Coconut Milkshake IPA

Cross My Heart

A juicy and tasty 6.5% ABV NE-style hazy with mild bitterness from the fine folks at Offshoot Beer Co.


Smoking Cannon Tasters

L to R, Parrott, Paxton, Phoenix, Gibbs, Spencer, Coehorn (on nitro) and Coehorn.
