I totally agree. Strawberries with lime and the hoppy flavors were really well done and so balanced.
I still have one in the back of the fridge, you know...for science?
I wasn’t wild about Ribbit but we are probably due for a milkshake, right?
I hope so - been bummed about it ever since I ran out of Galaxy Bowl Riff.
You want 3 more? Be got some left that I’m not gonna drink
I loved the first two iterations of Unwind Your Mind, but I poured this one down the drain. I do not remember that beer being as sweet as this batch is - it was a complete lactose fest this time around for me
Even my girlfriend, who enjoys sweeter NE IPAs and despises bitter ones, thought it was awful.
I am not certain, but I think this beer was lower in ABV% one of its first iterations
This past August was the last release of original Galaxy Bowl, will history repeat itself?!
A year ago, Unwind was marked a 6.5% DIPA on the can. So it was a misprint one way or the other. I personally find motueka to be very sweet as a hop so I can imagine it would be sweet combined with their typical profile now
I definitely agree on the Motueka profile. I got nothing besides off-putting sweetness with the 5-6 sips that I took from this though. No bitterness whatsoever, and none of the grassy, stone fruit I usually get out of Mosaic. It tasted like an overly-sweet, lactose-y, mess to me - but different strokes for different folks.
They could just be dropping whirfloc into one to clump up all the proteins and take away the haze.
Its probably okay. I can't believe how well these HB milkshakes hold up. Friends popped a year old can of the Hawaiian vibes like two weeks ago. It was totally fine.
Well shit, if I'd have known that I'd have bought another 4-pack or two; my wife and sister were both obsessed with that beer, and I liked it a lot too (despite preferring non-milkshakes).
All their beers hold up very well. It's unfortunate that a lot of people don't understand this and think any ipa needs to be drank within a week.
The problem is that their initial hazy batches famously didn't hold up well at all, so ever since then I've been in the "drink within a month or so" mindset just to be sure.
Yeah no need to worry about that now. The only hazy ipas that I've had an absolute terrible time with going bad within a couple weeks is narrow gauge. Tasted like cardboard after 3 weeks.
There's still plenty of Hazy IPAs that crash after 2-3 weeks.
There probably is, but I haven't been drinkin them!
Huh. I've drank a lot of NG stuff over the last 2+ years - crowlers and cans. Never had that issue. Now, I've had a few from them that I flat out didn't like, but nothing that went bad in a few weeks. Then again, they probably never last 3 weeks in my fridge anyways...
Some of the Hop Butcher stuff gets better 2 weeks to 2 months later. Really depends how much of the harsh bite/rindy hop edge you want. Wait for that to fade and the "juicey" hop flavors become more pronounced...as does the lactose...
I really love the artwork on Hop Butcher cans.
Anyone seen new cans this week? Website isn't showing anything...
Twitter post mentioned no cans this week.
They also hinted that Hawaii Vibes might be returning next week.
heard Tavern Cut is coming back next week!
You are correct sir! All we need now is Hawaii Vibes to be confirmed.
Smoke filled room is excellent. Super smooth and tropical, minimal sweetness.
I know this beer was release in the past, but picked up my first Unwind Your Mind and it was an excellent pour. I hope these guys (and Pipeworks) open up a brewpub soon!
Back to binge reading Josh Noel's Goose Island book.
It's a milkshake IIPA that almost certainly has lactose. I don't understand why they don't just say it on the can.
Tavern cut just tapped at miskatonic.
My experience at Binnys today...
Walk in, grab a 4pack of tavern cut and then continue checking out the other selection...
Guy walks up, and asks a worker what these hop butcher cans are bc he’s been hearing so much about their beer...
Worker looks at me and says, “Sir, can you please tell us about this beer?”
No, I didn’t earn any commission from that sale either.
No signs of Hawaii Vibes?
But did you mention the lactose?
No Sir, just about 4 cases of TV sitting on the floor
you guys seeing these Dark Hedges posts on facebook? the can looks super dope
