Zelator Tropical Lollipop

Always happy to find Omnipollo beers locally. This collaboration is no exception. Nose has wonderful notes of citrus, pineapple and mango. Full bodied juicy flavors with soft mouth-feel. Not overly sweet, nicely balanced, with mild bitterness on the finish. Would not have guessed it was 10% ABV.

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.

Woodcut No. 9

A 10.7% ABV oak aged imperial IPA from the fine folks at O’Dell Brewing. Malty sweetness with notes of toffee, vanilla, dark fruits, melon and oak. Finishes somewhat sweet with pleasant lingering hop bitterness.

Revengeful Spirit IIPA

Stone Brewing’s 8.1% ABV imperial IPA made with pineapple and mandarin orange. Fruity up front, somewhat sweet while in my mouth and with just enough lingering hop finish to encourage another sip. Whoa… that was gone fast… who drank my beer?

A little Puff after work

By little I mean 12 fluid ounces. By Puff I mean 9.8% ABV, 108 IBU IPA from Sixpoint Brewery. Per the label an unfiltered and special dry-hopped version of their Resin imperial IPA. Piney and resinous hop characteristics overpower the big malty base so no residual sweetness. The pleasant, but strong, bitterness doesn’t linger as […]

Primordial IIPA

It’s been years since I’ve had a Primordial IPA from Vista’s Mother Earth Brew Co.  I remember the first place I had it outside their brewery supply store / nano brewery was Phileas Foggs in Poway.  Quite good then.  Quite good now. Nose is sweet maltyness with piney and resinous hop notes.  Flavor is malty […]

Leo vs Ursus: Fortem

A tasty 8.2% unfiltered imperial IPA.  Piney and resinous hop nose, with strong but pleasant hop bitterness over a pale malt body with no residual sweetness.  Bitterness lingers only slightly after swallowing.

Post Bike Ride Hop Crisis

Grabbed a 9.7% ABV imperial IPA aged with oak spirals, from San Francisco’s own 21st Ammendment Brewing, packaged in a pool-safe decanter, to enjoy in the warm spa after our ride.  Still quite good though a bit past it’s best by date.

5th Anniversary Big Mot Her

I would have guessed the beer included the newly discovered cluster type hop neo-mexic-anus based on the smell alone,  but was wrong if you believe what they wrote on the bottle.  One big (ass) mother of a beer…10.something percent…If I could only get up…I could tell for sure.
