Hail to the Hop Thief

It’s a double IPA, and even though they claim it’s unfiltered, it’s actually pretty clear, clean, crisp, and dry.  It’s thinker than a regular IPA though not syrupy at all.  It reminds me of a matured Enjoy By where it matured well.  That and I like the blue labeling on the bottle.  It stands out […]

El Sully Mexican Lager

21st Amendment’s version of a traditional Mexican Lager. It’s pretty down the line 4.8% style one, with a slight toasty smell and faint butter aftertaste that’s only possible if you are comparing it head to head w/ a mass marketed one. The carbonation is finer w/ smaller bubbles and what’s even better, it’s missing the […]

La fin du monde

It’s a Belgian, it’s a triple at 9%, it tastes awesome.  Not much more to say…

Seasonal release IPA.  Like all summer IPAs I like mine extra cold but didn’t have the patience to put it in the freezer, so yes that’s ice.  It’s a full bodied IPA, not a session one so even with the ice it doesn’t have that watered down taste–as it shouldn’t as it’s 6.8% by volume […]

Dark color, light taste. Only a small taste of raspberry but it balances out well. It’s got a rich brown malt finish.

Ballast Tart Peach Kolsch

Complex and taste differs how you drink it. It’s either tart, sour, or rich and complex. It had a lot of dry peach.  It’s different but surprisingly good–even for someone who really doesn’t like fruity beers.

Ballast CA Kolsch

Rich golden hops and malts. Not sure why it’s California other than it’s fun to drink at the beach while watching the surf.

Orange Curtain IPA sixer

Barley Forge has made a nice home for itself in Orange County.  This is one of my favorite easy drinking India Pale Ales as it goes for flavorful versus bitter.  Some claim hints of orange and pear, but it doesn’t taste fruity to me at all. Don’t let its mild manner fool you though as […]
