Haze Well with Others

6.4% ABV IPA from Smog City Brewing. Citrus n pine nose, light body with pleasant hop flavors and lower bitterness.


Transgression Culture…

..chocolate cinnamon macaroon imperial stout. A rich and delish 11.5% stout from Foreign Objects Beer Company.


Wave Jammer

Citrusy hop flavors with mild bitterness and somewhat dry finish. All that and 8.1% ABV


Hop Clarity

A delish west-coast IPA from Atascadro’s Wild Fields, and co-founder Ryan Fields. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and a few beers, and was fortunate to grab the last 2 cans of these so we could sip while at Pismo Beach.



In my mind a whole new meaning to the word faceplant. 7% ABV IPA made with Opshaug Kveik yeast strain and “balanced with Nelson hops” from Berryessa Brewing.

Training Bines

The Alvarado Street version is quite yummy. Thanks to all the super-collaboators and hop farmers. Five more versions to try it from.


Neltronion Enforcer

Hmm… like they were trying to make a west coast IPA, but they forgot to add the hops to the boil. No bitterness.


Universal Secret

Whoa, like the can version better than the draft version I had some weeks ago. Dank and resinous, with notes of Marijuana at first that dissipates, lingering finish, but less bitterness than expected.
