A fantastic beer that's been too long since I've had one.
The beer I came to mention was Great Lakes Glockenspiel. Released as their summer seasonal a few years ago, I fell in love with it. Perfect beer to drink outside on a hot day. I keep wishing they will release it again.
Founders Red's Rye, Dirty Bastard, and Pale Ale
Green Flash Hop Head Red
Bells Midwestern Pale Ale, Amber, and Old Ale
Boulevard's Saison-brett (More unknown than underrated IMO, but it blows Tank 7 out of the water, and I love Tank)
Ballast Point Big Eye
Lagunitas Hairy Eyeball
New Holland Hopivore (Wet Hopped pale-amberish ale)
Alesmith Wee Heavy
This question was perfectly designed for Sea Hag by NEBCO as the right answer. Better than 95% of the IPAs out there, and the 5% are things such as Gandhi Bot, Fuzzy Baby Ducks and Coriolis also by NEBCO.
How about two underrated beers from an under underrated Brewery:
Total Eclipse Breakfast Stout
Amarillo Brillo DIPA
I agree with both of these.
I also think Odell's Cutthroat Porter is criminally under-rated.
The beer that sticks out in my mind is Founders Reds Rye. If any other brewery made this beer it would get way more buzz.
I don't think that's the case. Founders is one of the most popular breweries, after all. I think it's because Red's is (IMO) very well-balanced with its delicious and strong caramel malt. If the malt were more along the lines of Centennial, with that much amarillo, I bet it would do really well. I'm fine with that as long as they keep Red's around
You've got great taste
That's because you were in South Dakota! Sorry! Yes, it is a great IPA, but I have to say, my IPA of the moment is Let it Ride from Indeed Brewing, Minneapolis!
I ll have to give it a try!
Ommegang Abbey Ale
yeah, others hear have mentioned troegs nugget nectar and lagunitas sucks, and if those, along with ten fidy arent hyped i dont know wtf hyped means.
someone mentioned SN narwhal. i didnt love that beer but speaking of them i remember trying a bear of theirs in the early fall called flipsyde red IPA but ive never seen it sold there or anywhere else again and have never heard it mentioned and i LOVED that beer. Incredible balance and very tasty also drinkable. has anyone else tried it?
Bells- Expedition stout.
Steelhead Extra Stout from Mad River Brewing. Amazing stout.
Flipside was new this past Fall, and you'll see it again around September. I really like it, too. Hope we see 12-packs!
Myrcenary is Odell's Double IPA... the other their regular offering. I agree and think Odell IPA is one of the best in the country...I also agree with you that Myrcenary is one of the best Double IPAs in the country...two different styles and two very good beers.
Heady Topper, I actually think it's a 6/5
Great Lakes Nosferatu
People are always on here looking for a crowd pleaser keg for parties. One that anyone from BMC drinkers to craft fans would drink. This is my go-to for that purpose. I leave anything that is even moderately hoppy or bigger to cans/bottles.
It is and for good reason.Overshadowed by 90 minute and 60 minute which are great but Indian Brown Ale is in my opinion as good a beer as the other two. Depends on your taste buds.
You are so right.Everything is just fantastic and ridiculously inexpensive for what you get.I never
walk out of the store without something from them and something else from another brewery.
Ale smith IPA and idiot IPA from Coronado are good
CCB Tocobaga and NB Fat Tire are 2 of my current favorite Non "OMG!", standard gravity, mostly available(other than the Toco) beers that are rarely raved about online.. People just say they are good beers but I think they deserve more praise.
I was just coming here to say Nosferatu! Also Defiant Christmas Ale is a winner that is super underrated and I don't think Rushing Duck is getting enough recognition. If people knew how good Rushing Duck War Elephant IIPA was they would be beating down the doors.
Southern Tier Live is easily the best Pale Ale I've ever had. When fresh, it has orange/tangerine flavors that rival most any great IPAs.
Love both of these beers. Completely forgot about them till you mentioned them. I know what I drinking all weekend.
One of my seasonal favorites that come to mind is Great Divide Hibernation Ale. Drink it fresh or age it, either way I enjoy it.
Under rated for sure with a 86 rating. Doppel-Hirsch Doppelbock. I'm enjoying one now. Very similar to Korbinian
One of my faves, without a doubt!
Sixpoint Global Warmer and Founders Porter for sure.
Maine Beer Company Peeper Ale and Rising Tide Daymark. Two of my favorite spring/summer beers that are overshadowed by each breweries IPAs (lunch and Calcutta cutter)
Dark Horse Scotty Karate is underrated
Call me crazy, but I think Brooklyn Lager is one of their most underrated beers yet. I had it for the first time on tap at Barclay's with a pack of McClure's chips. Maybe it was the chips that did me in, but it's been my go-to whenever I'm at a bar with limited choices...
Shadow of a Doubt, by RR. I know it's not the most accessible beer, but its totally overshadowed by the sours and elders, and I'll be damned if it's not an incredibly awesome beer.
I'd probably consider Alpha King by FFF not necessarily underrated but definitely undermentioned.
Troegs Perpetual IPA
Ithaca Casca Zilla
Heavy Seas Small Craft Warning
Not underrated, but I always forget what a solid brew stone's ipa is with all their other ipas floating around. Very well balanced and for 4.50$ at my local albertsons, it's hard to beat.
