Three offering currently available with a fourth on the way next week. They took over Acoustic Ales space at Mission Brewery Plaza.
Reached deep into the fridge and made the logical choice. Though it maybe a 3x IPA by Alesmith standards, on a Pizza Port scale it would be a San Diego strong pale ale. Tasty either way.
A damn tasty collaboration beer from J. Wakefield Brewing and Alvarado Street Brewery. Based on flavor..no way I would call this an IPA. Sour and fruitiness overwhelm any hop bitterness.
Amplified Ale Works Backstage, their PB taproom downstairs from the restaurant, is finally open. New Generation is a juicy hazy IPA with a nose of citrus rind and refreshing taste with mild bitterness.
….mmm…12.5% ABV barrel-aged dessert.
Happy with my choice. A 7.3% ABV American IPA with a pale malt body and a tasty blend of hops.
I grabbed this during my last bottle round up of Costa Rican beers. This American Wheat Pale Ale, pleasantly hopped over a very pale malt body, was actually from El Salvador…go figure.
A nice option while on layover at Aeropuerto de Dallas-Fort Worth. Pleasent hop flavors /bitterness shine through any malty sweetness from the base beer.
From Sin Corbata Cerveceria Artesanal, this 5.4% ABV, 40 IBU beer, is malty, but not sweet, with a somewhat herbal bitterness characteristic.
Nose is sweet dark roasted/toasted malts, but not burnt smell. Flavor is not sweet and more mild than the nose implies, like it’s been watered down. The bitterness tastes more like burnt malts and not hops. I believe the 5% ABV on the bottle, but not the 90 IBUs
