Stay Hazy…San Diego

A nice 4.8% ABV session IPA made in the DDH hazy style by the fine folks at North Park Beer Co. Nice grapefruit notes.


Fluffy IPA

Not quite sure about this beer. Smells super sweet with notes of caramelized sugar and vanilla, maybe coconut. Flavor has not as sweet as I would have thought. Low bitterness and soft mouth-feel. Totally reminds me of Pier 1 vanilla candle smell.


Alesmith IPA

First time trying from a can. After a few hours of yard work in the hot late morning sun, the beer tasted great. The dip in the pool didn’t hurt either


Tiki Escape IPA

Body and bitterness is not so different from other Stone IPA’s, but this had some unexpected notes of tropical fruit. More on the nose, but definitely there.


Drive Thru Red

“Debbie’s Yeasty Red Vagina Ale” was unfortunately not chosen for the name of the beer brewed to celebrate a friends birthday. I blame myself. I did not generate and submit the artwork for the beer label for consideration. Be that as it may, I feel a bottle of the brew was accidentally slipped into the […]


Trail Marker IPA

Though they couldn’t serve us tasters at Ten Mile Brewing when we stopped byp a few weeks back, we were able to grab a mixed 4-pak. Trail Marker IPA is our last can. Well balanced with medium body. Piney hop flavors and pleasant bitterness that dissipates quickly after swallowing.


O’Dell Woodcut

A delish, malty sweet 10.7% ABV oak aged imperial IPA where the aging smooths-outs the bitterness. Brewed for O’Dell Brewing’s 30th anniversary (2019). Cheers. It reminds me of the oak aged imperial IPA Dogfish beer brewed to celebrate blues guitarist Robert Johnson, though can’t recall the name.


Gold Chain

A darn good Belgian golden strong ale, clocking in at 9.9% ABV, from Automatic Brewing. Grabbed this at BLAH a couple weeks back when, for a brief time, they had socially distanced indoor dining. Boozy, nice somewhat sweet malt base with notes of dried fruit…apricot maybe…and a dry finish.


Community Mosaic IPA

Unfortunately I’m not getting the tropical notes I would normally associate with a Mosaic hopped IPA. Otherwise a nice IPA at 8.6% ABV and 85 IBU. Nicely balanced with pleasant lingering hop bitterness.
