Starting Early Beer Review!

A couple of delicasies were on sale at DeCiccos - Ardsley today. Had to work late so went over there at we go.

1) Mission Brewery - Ship Wrecked Double IPA - 9.25% - Big Boozy Double IPA. This is a new brewery for me. There are a bunch of new breweries noted at DeCiccos. This beer is good, not great. May try some more of their items!

2) Cigar City - Big Apple IPA - 7.0% Brewed in conjunction with NYC Beer Week....this is a nice pumpkin ale. Don't really get the hops and the nutmeg and cinnamon dominate. This to me is more of a pumkin ale (and one of the better ones!)

3) Harpoon Docesna - Czech Hop Harvest Ale - 6.1% - done in honor of the Czech Hop Harvest festival....nice! More of a lager to me but i can drink this a bunch!

4 Stone- Cherry Chocolate Stout - 7.5% - Collaboratively brewed with Troegs...really wanted to try this and went out of my way to get it, but it is just a thin stout with some cloying sweetness....dissapointed.

5) Smuttynose - Pumpkin Ale - 6.0% - Actually get a little hop profile with this beer. Hops are not really evident in this style...nice!
