Newer collaboration beer from Amplified Ale Works and Chula Vista’s 3 Punks…you guess it.. it’s an IPA made in the hazy style.
After sitting for a bit packaged hazy beers can have a concentrated sludge on the bottom that would be best avoided. When in a can you can’t see it…but it’s often there, lurking.

I’ve tried many a Figueroa Mtn beer, but likely just scratching the surface of the Fig Mtn beer catalog. But, it’s quite possibly the best Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. beer I’ve had. It’s a well balanced IPA with a mild coconut nose and tad more than a hint of coconut on the finish. It’s got […]
Stone Brewing’s 8.1% ABV imperial IPA made with pineapple and mandarin orange. Fruity up front, somewhat sweet while in my mouth and with just enough lingering hop finish to encourage another sip. Whoa… that was gone fast… who drank my beer?
