Founders Mango Magnifico

My friends had me try this as they knew I am a sometime fan of Tecate, lime, salt, and Tapatio. The mango makes it overly sweet. It’s got a very smooth feel with a slight banana taste. At the end is a firey rush. It’s not something I’d buy, but it was fun to taste. […]


Monster’s Park by Modern Times Special Release

I asked the cashier to check the receipt again. My Friday trip to the local beer and wine mart is used to high markups, but $44 for a couple of Modern Times releases couldn’t be right. He confirmed that the Modern Times Monster’s Park was indeed $29.99 w/o tax. What the hell, I’d give it […]

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…


Maiden the Shade by Ninkasa

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 […]


Lost Coast Raspberry Brown

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