Weekend Beer Review!

Went to Table and Vine today and picked up several tasty treats as well as one (kind of) rarity. Picked up a bottle of the Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Ale which I look forward to trying. This review is going to start off with a hoppy theme and then is going to go schizo!

1) Brew Dog - bashah - Black IPA - 8.6% - Dark IPA - Didn't get this at T&V (actually got it in CT. Very dark & bold. Malt is definitely there though. Kind of a hoppy stout! Was hoping to find tactical nuclear penguin today but no luck.

2) Founders Brewing - Double Trouble - 9.4% - This can't be 9.4%. It is one of the smoothest IPA's I've had. Really like this! A trip to Grand Rapids may be close!

3) Mikkeller - Tomahawk Single Hop IPA 6.9% ABV - Great beer - Actually this is what beer should be with the balance of taste and ABV. I missed their event at the Tiger.... my loss.

4) Weihenstephaner - Vitus - 7.7% - Purity Law 1516. Enough said!

5) Smuttynose Wheat Wine Ale- 10.20% - Or the beer I'm drinking when America became France! Not quite sure of the difference betwixt (I had to use that!) and a Barley Wine. This is a bit harsh which I like and the color is a nice orange. The alcohol is very present. Need to cellar one of these.

6) - South Hampton - Cuvee' des Fleurs - 8.2% Very nice light for the ABV.

Wanted to go to Zum Schneiders last Friday. Gave up after hitting d.b.a. There is one bartender who for whatever reason gives me my first beer on the house. I then feel obligated to stay for another....Next friday not stopping at d.b.a.
