Weekend Beer Review!

1) Karbach - Hopadillo - American IPA - I like this nice amber color floral nose mild hop bite.

2) Great Divide - 18th Anniversary Wood Aged DIPA - I got wood, heh!

3) Stone Brewing - 10th Anniversary Ruination - The hops used are the one's that taste like onions #fail.

4) Karbach - Rodeo Clown - Another Texas beer...good but too malty!  Where's the hops!

5) Captain Lawrence - Mother Barrel Select - 14% - They have this big old barrel outside of the new brewery location in Elmsford.  They aged their Nor'Easter in this barrel for about a year.  Result...nice sour at 15% perfect almost ending to a summers day.

6) Midnight Sun - Panty Peeler -Tripel ale clecking in at 8.75% - Nice spice and nice sentiment!

Weekend Beer Review!

Hops is the word of the day!

1) New England Brewing - Fuzzy Baby Ducks - A Citra IPA - 6.2% - It is tasty not heady topper.   These should be a a must for brunch!

2) Spider Bite - Eight Legged Rye Pale Ale - 7.0% - Nice little offering from LI's nano brewery.  Pretty hoppy and very smooth.  Do get the alcohol in this, kind of like having a shot and a beer in one drink!

3) Deschutes - Mirror Pond Pale Ale - 5.0% - Brought this back from KC.  Good beer but for a pale ale I thought this was a bit malty.

4) Adelberts - dacin Monk - Loggged and done!

Weekend Beer Review!

Alright I need to get back to the proprities in hand!

1) Avery Brewing Co - 19 - Belgian Style Tripel - 8.2% - Smell is fantastic, love the bubblegum  nose and flavor.  Color is a light orange with a little frothy head.  Curious as to what they do next year.  Bet it will be some sorth of bourbon barrel stout.

2) Port Brewing - Hot Rocks Lager - 6.5% - Euro Dark Lager - I like it just don't understand the style.

3) DC Brau - Penn Quarter Porter - 5.5% - Very solid!  Go to the next level and brew a solid stout!

4) Slumbrew - Imperial Cream ale - yep!

5) Freetail Brewing Co. - Pale Tail - 5.5% - Nice American Pale Ale - Good way to start off the afternoon.  This is from Texas....have some really interesting stuff from Texas coming up!

6) Firestone Walker - Wookey Jack - Black Rye IPA - This is nice and very easily drinkable.  I think this is one of the better Black IPA's going.

7) Central Waters - Bourbon Barrel Barleywine 11.5% - Wow this is a big 'un!  Vanilla & Butterscotch abound!  Dangerously drinkable!

8) Foothills Brewing  - Barrel Aged Peoples Porter - 6.0% - Nice Barrel aged beer from NC.  The bourbon adds a nice nice sweetness to this well done!

8) Jack's Abby - Maibock Hurts like Helles 6.5% - Framingham Trip shortly!

Shhhh! No one tell Holder!

Apparently there is a meme shift via the NYC Subway system

Weekend Beer Review!

At it!

1) Shipyard Monkey Fist - 6.9% - What they said they were trying to do was merge the English and American IPA styles.  I think they did this farely well - Growler Serving...would most likely have again.

2) Green Flash - Linch Pin - White IPA - 7.0% Brewed in collaboration with Founders. Pretty damn tasty.  The citrus and the belgian yeast really compiment each other.  Very refreshing given the ABV.  Would definely have again!
