2nd generation of Amplified Ale Works NE-style IPA, this time for their can release. Going down waaaay to fast on this hot-ass day. We came upstairs because they don’t have Off the Record and Uber Jam downstairs. Downstairs is much much cooler.
The best beer of the day was also my last. Quite happy with this juicy 6.4% ABV New England-style IPA from Goldwater Brewing in Scottsdale, AZ. Went well with my cottage pie pasty at downtown Cornish. One of the few places open late on a Sunday.
A hazy IPA from the fine folks at Solana Beach Pizza Port. Decent, but nothing outstanding. Mild bitterness and not much of a nose…or could it be my nasal congestion…hmmm. Maybe this is the best beer I’ve ever had and I just can’t tell.
…not Bill. One of two new NE hazy-style IPA available at Amplified. Bill and Ted are the same base beer with different hop bills. Bill is made but just not on draft quite yet in PB. Ted is juicy-citrus with mild hop bitterness. Quite nice. Sadly I don’t recall what D said the the two […]
A delish, 7% ABV hazy IPA from the fine folks at Amplified Ale Works. Made with Idaho 7, Bru-1 and Cryo Eukanot hops, it has a piney nose, mild bitterness and finishes with notes of black pepper.
Though this IPA is a bit hazy, it is not a juicy NE style. More up-front bitterness and a lingering flavor of what reminds me of a rye IPA.
If I was smart I would have snapped a pic of the beer list. My fav was the middle beer of the 5, Roadrunner Roadrunner, a 6.6% ABV juicy hazy IPA made in the NE style.
Lemony-citrus forward sweet fruit nose, juicy with pleasantly mild bitterness, all wrapped up in 6.5% ABV hazy solution. Damn fine beer.
On my way home from dinner with my mom, and a quick visit to the library, an 8% hazy IPA jumped in front of my car and dragged me kicking and screaming into Wild Barrel Brewing.
Juicy and delicious IPA, in the NE hazy style, from the fine folks of San Clemente’s Artifex Brewing.
