Well, this took too long....

I've been reading beer adv. for years. Stealing and gleaning info. Free info. is often misleading when were talking the palate. Obviously, it can differ greatly but some common themes will exist.

Now the beer. Well what do I say. I've probably reviewed and drank a thousand ipa's. So I expect greatness. Having truly started beerhunting in the great lakes region I'm greatly biased. This beer is reminiscent of two hearted, when two hearted was brewed in much smaller batches by Mr. Larry Bell. A great whiff of dank hops perfectly timed in the brewing process. But then again I ponder Great lakes brewing and how well dortmunder gold was-malty and beatufllly neither under or over hopped. Again, smaller batches less popularity. That is where I see fat heads. Another great Midwest brewery taking special attention to each batch. Superior ingredients.. Done with a nod to the weather and shipments good or bad. A great ipa. But nothing new. Just well done small batch brewing. The way it should be done.

I hear that in Germany their are still many microbrews. Thank god we are trying to keep things small. But at a price. At three dollars a bottle, I almost feel like a good looking barmaid should be bringing this my way..

Worth seeking out. But chances are some sort of great ale project exists in your backyard to sample as well.

Over and out, Big Ed hunkered down in SW Ohio. Once home to the brewing mecca of this sad to say faltering country.
