There have been a handful of milkshake IPAs that Michele has really like. All the standout ones have been double or triple IPAs (8% to 13% ABV), mostly with fruit, all somewhat sweet and super dry-hopped with very little bitterness on the tongue (less than 20 IBU). I grabbed this can of 8% ABV nitro […]
A few month back La Jolla’s Absolution by the Sea was renamed CAVU Brewery. Talking to our server, AbtS had multiple owner and when some left to stay focused on the Absolution nest, two owners stayed and renamed it. The house beers we tried need some work, but they did have a decent tap list […]
It ain’t no Pliny, but had no problem finishing the bottle.
For now it’s Stratacaster. But with E11even IIIPA and Strange Lover IPA on as well, plus Electric Mud cans out…we might be here a while. Not hard to guess that she chose Gold Record.
Lemon Grove’s first brewery. The brown is second from the right, otherwise L to R, top to bottom. We chose the nitro porter. Overall we thought beers were pretty good. A couple of weeks into their soft opening with Grand Opening next Friday.
We tried a small sampling of 8 Bit Brewing beers and were surprised by how much we enjoyed them. We would definitely go back. L to R, we had Hefe for Dead, Legend of Nilla, We Are Froot, Hazy, Shallow…, True Brewmance, and Mario Tart. All quite enjoyable.
Juicy n tasty. Marked as a session IPA at 5.4% ABV. We tried five or six different brews and quite happy with what tried.
We bicycled the 15 miles to the newest brewery in town, Gravity Heights. Off Mira Mesa Blvd and Pacific Heights. Nice place. Not a surprise, I opted for the hoppy flight.. …and she opted for the dark and malty tasters. Not a bad beer in the bunch…not much a surprise considering Skip Virgilio is at […]
A juicy n hazy IPA where the slight tartness just adds to the juiciness…like morning breakfast beverage juiciness. With very little bitterness and massive dry-hopping, it’s really quite good. No way I would have guessed the 8% ABV the bottle indicates. From the fine folks at Chicago’s Pipeworks Brewing Co.
The beer name is reminiscent of five year-old playground name calling. By taste I would have said New England-style hazy IPA, and not the hefeweizen indicated on the can…must be the dry hopping. Clocking in at a respectable 8% ABV.
