Please do me a favor, if you ever hear the words “Dry January” escape my lips…talk me out of it. Ok…maybe this January hasn’t been totally dry…but definitely more dry than most Januarys. She’s stronger than me. Beer for me, OJ for her. The beer is more unfiltered west coast style with hoppy citrus nose […]
A remake of the east village collaboration IPA between Amplified Ale Works and Melvin Brewing. A tasty west coast style with Citra and Simcoe, and a 7% ABV… what’s not to love.
Fresh off the plane from Charlotte, North Carolina, where cans can be purchased from the NoDa Brewing Co airport tasting room and kitchen for a measly $11.50 a can. Light body with plenty of nice hop flavors, with a mildly bitter finish with notes of black pepper. Juicy? NoDa. Hazy? NoDa. IPA? NoDa. 6% ABV? […]
Not much nose, but damn tasty. Nice balance with nice hop flavors/bitterness. No ABV indicated, but would guess 7%-ish. Jeez…Pizza Port Solana Beach is packed tonight. Order a beer and get back in line.
9.4% ABV Enjoy-By today IPA. Not quite as spooky when it’s still light out, but worked just fine.
Only info not in the pic…6.5% ABV and a collaboration with Burgeon Beer Co. Quite tasty.
An 8% double IPA from Port Brewing. Piney hop nose. Medium body with lingering bitterness. Yeah, this will work. Though not really getting some of the characteristics I would expect from Nelson (Sauvin) in both boil and dry hopping, I’m enjoying it more as I continue to sip. Whoa… it’s gone! Who stole my beer?
..for me, and a Cactus Passion Dragon Fruit San Diego Vice for the lady. A 7% ABV medium bodied juicy IPA, with soft mouthfeel and mild bitterness from Columbus, Ohio’s Hoof Hearted Brewing. Darn tasty. Oh… the Vice was pretty good too. More on par with the draft versions of ones we’ve liked and better […]
Whoa…another old can in the beer drawer. Canned in Mar of 2019. Damn, I really need to do a better job of rotating beers forward. Straight from da can.
Found this in the bottom of the beer drawer. Ouch…June 2019 canning date… so a bit late. Oh well. Right out of the can the nose was a mix of piney, resinous, sweet malts with notes of fruit. Medium bodied IPA with soft, pillowy mouthfeel and a balanced finish. Maybe less bitterness than balanced. “Exudes […]
