Recognizing the great day in 1935 when beer was first sold in cans. Quite happy with Three Weavers, The Messenger. A bright citrus forward 7.2% ABV IPA with great hop flavors.
An 8.5% ABV tripel from De Glazen Toren. Good. More dry and less sweet than others.
A 7.1% ABV vanilla oatmeal stout from Institution Ale Co. Smells sweeter than it tasted. Nice mouth feel and roasted malt flavors. I would have guessed a lower ABV based on taste. Merry ho ho.
Not sure how long this has been in the beer drawer. I’m sure the hops have mellowed a bit, but still quite nice. Nose was a mix floral and pine, which followed through on taste. Nice hop bitterness that lingered just long enough to encourage another sip. Would not have guessed 8.5% ABV.
Super fruity juicy nose the follows through nicely with the flavors. Soft mouth-feel and mild hop bitterness. Quite happy with it.
A delish DDH IPA made in the NE style from Other Half Brewing. I had no idea that an Oat Cream IPA even existed in this world. Pungent, juicy hop nose, creamy mouth-feel with nice hop flavors and no bitterness. Would have preferred pouring into a glass, but was not really an option at the […]
Amplified Ale Works delish 8% double IPA.
…at home. Quite nice 7.5% ABV hazy IPA. Kegs gone and down to cans… but cans travel well. This is one of two I stuffed into my bike jersey before heading home. Get them while you can.
A decent 6.5% ABV collaboration beer offering from the fine folks at Karl Strauss and Societe Brewing Company, made in the west-coast style.
A 6% clean hoppy lager with crisp dry finish.
