Lord Hobo Angelica

Whoa…this is awesome! Who knew we had a Lord Hobo in the lower left. Might as well order another right now, as this juicy 5.5% ABV hazy wheat pale ale, with wonderful notes of fruit, from the upper right just ain’t gonna last. Found this gem at La Jolla Public House.


Alaskan Double Black IPA

I tried this yesterday and it was good. At 7.7% it’s double seems to apply to the black part and not the IPA.   It’s dark, rich, malty, mildly sweet with faint coffee tastes.   Nobody else seemed to like it, so I got it all to myself.      



The place was packed for their grand opening with 6 drafts on and 2 cans available. JuneShine is the newest high gravity kombucha brewery in town, all with 6% ABV. Our fav was the Beet Berry.


Stone Go to IPA

So I tried this the other day.  It comes in an attractive box.  The cans are artistic black and yellow and I thought I was buying one of the latest Stone Hop series.  When I got it home I found out it was the Stone go to IPA.  While Stone is one of my favorite […]


The Bends

A new 7.2% ABV IPA from fine folks at Amplified Ale Works. A pale malt body with pleasant hop bitterness. The pic is more orange color than the beer actually is. It looks more like a berlinerweiss…between that and the glow of a Mountain Dew. Not much of a nose, but quite tasty.


Mason Ale Works Tasters

A short bike ride to the newest brewery tasting room to open; Mason Ale Works Tasting Room and Kitchen in Carmel Valley. I chose the Eloise Woods, which tasted like an IPA aged in white wine barrels, and The Duke, an 11% triple IPA. Happy with both. If only for a few minutes…we are up […]


Triple Dry Hyped

A delish 10.5% ABV hazy triple IPA from the fine folks at Pure Project. At only 50 IBU it finishes a bit sweeter than I prefer, but I’m suffering through it just fine.


Hop Puddin’

Strong nose of sweet vanilla and coconut. Flavor matches the nose, but has a mild hop bitterness in the sweet finish. I kept sipping and asking myself what I was tasting…then it was gone. Lots of flavors I would think wouldn’t work together, but oddly they do….and all wrapped up in an 8% ABV solution. […]
