Very happy with my choice. A juicy 7% ABV IPA from Ushi Tora Brewery in Tochigi Japan, north of Tokyo. She chose the Golden Ginjo Ale from Zig Zag Brewery…but low IBU beer option were limited. The sake options, though limited in quantity, were excellent from the ones we tasted. We chose the Hatsuhinode from […]
A local juicy 7.2% ABV IPA with strong notes of tropical fruits. How fitting considering I found it at Kaleidoscope Juice in downtown Phoenix.
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.
Like a prize after a long day of….stuff. Deceptively smooth for a 9.4% ABV IPA, with plenty of dank resinous hop characteristics.
After trying a splash of Havnor at a local watering hole, I wasn’t super excited about the bottle we already had in the fridge. The bottle was way better. Pale malt body, pleasant hop bitterness with strong notes of sweet melon on the nose (which stuck around for the first half of the beer) but […]
Suffering through an old Christmas beer. Thinking it may pair well with the cheese and crackers leftover from the x-mas party that I haven’t gotten around to throwing out.
Though it’s served hazy at the moment, the IPA has more a west coast hop profile with a lingering grapefruit-peel bitterness. Tasty.
A little more than half-way into today’s bike ride and some fuel was needed. After trying many, Benchmark Brewing Company Belgian-style Dubbel, was the perfect choice. Oh, don’t get me wrong. ..the table beer, the tart table beer with strawberries, their standard IPA, the Survey Series No3 IPA, and Trail Dog west coast style IPA […]
Partially obscured by some other promising options, it was noticed a tad late. Not quite as devistatingly fresh as it could have been, but pretty good.
I found this 6.3% ABV wet hopped IPA made with Mosaic hops quite good. The Seadawg IPA, also an IPA made with Mosaic, was also quite nice, but a bit more grassy, with bitterness lingering a bit longer than the Contender. After the warm day, the Contender suited my dry palate. Both on draft now […]
