Discussion in 'US - Midwest' started by EOTLBrewer, Jun 25, 2014.
Yes but not everything is available for growler fill
I agree, still very tasty but seems different. The first cans I had this summer and the Chicago cans were different that the last two Michigan cans, in my memory.
Yeah, unfortunately I bought a couple 4-packs before I tried it on draft. A very mediocre DIPA.
this batch definitely seems darker and sweeter.
They do, but hops only, and nothing that they currently have available in cans.
Anything new regarding IL membership? I always feel like I miss some of the emails.
havent seen anything.
I really happy that things are going well for Transient but a little frustrated that there is very little communication to IL memebrs and that we see such little distro now. Especailly for the folks who have been handing money over in blind faith when he was still just sharing space at Aquanaut.
Nothing new I've seen since the email from March 5 that I posted one page back in the thread. he said ~5 bottles in 4-6 weeks, so I'm guessing mid April release? Lots of us with the blind faith in IL. I'm hopeful with him brewing at both Hailstorm & apparently with barrels aging at Mikerphone we'll see an uptick in IL availability. Perhaps even some IL member only releases that aren't out to general distro....
New batch has no haze, but tastes just as good. I find it kind of odd how much emphasis is placed on "haze" and not on taste.
I hope the price has come down accordingly since the haze wasn't included. If there is no haze, you can't charge haze craze prices.
I actually think it tastes distinctly less hoppy/juicy and more like a traditional Midwest IPA
Unless they're still toying with the recipe, I'd hope the emphasis is on consistency.
Pour 90% of the can, swirl remaining 10% vigorously for 3 seconds, pour remaining contents of can into beer. Makes it more hazy and seems to give it a fuller flavor and MF. I do this every time with all of Transients canned hops, and if it's wrong to do so I don't want to be right.
I literally just started doing the same about 2 cans ago and it makes quite a difference. I was beginning to wonder if this was something one is suppose to do with these beers.
I can recommend NOT doing the same with cans of M-43 unless you want to actually chew the hops/beer in the bottom of your glass. Lots of matter in the bottom of those cans.
I had it for the first time at Huna Day and it was underwhelming. Malty and bitter, pretty much the opposite of what it's supposed to be? It did not make a good first impression.
Anyone know if kids are allowed in Transient? Thanks.
Their IPAs aren't THAT juicy.
Yes sir, I brought my daughter with me for their first release of Obligatory in cans and we had a great time hanging out together having a beer (me) and a water (her) . I was there during early afternoon though, not sure I'd want to take a child there later than 630-7ish when the drinking crowd comes in, but I'm sure you wouldn't be turned away if it was at that time or a little later.
Appreciate the info. Heading back through the area and will have my 17-yr old and wanted to stop in for a pour and grab some Flightless if it's still around. He'll be fine.
Is there such a thing as a brewery that doesn't allow kids, in Michigan?
Brooks Brewing for sure does not. Found that out the hard way.
The first time I had it I thought it rivaled Narrow Gauge for best Midwest NEIPA. Each time I've had it since then it's gotten a little worse
Took your advice. Much more haze than the previous carelessly poured can.
I get the feeling that was not posted to really show us the haze.
For context. I'm watching the last 8 games of the season from 2016 from now until next Saturday. Gotta get in the zone for opening day next Sunday.
I agree on TJIL lacking haze. Mine also seemed undercarbonated. I did roll my can on its side a few times before opening. With that said, it still tasted similar to the last batch I had. I will try the pour 90% method and swirl the last 10%.
Any word from transient what happened? Purposely changed or unforeseen mistake?
I had the January 2017 Chicago release of JiL and thought it was superb. Just had the March 2017 Michigan release as an extra in a trade and its disappointing.
I know it's been discussed in the past 20 posts, just wondering if transient has acknowledged the major discrepancy in these two beers with the same name.
Check the NE IPA's in SW Michigan thread and all will be revealed.
Have we heard anything regarding the next batch of bottles yet?
We are getting real close to 6 weeks from that last email so it doesn't look like they are hitting that window as I doubt they'd announce the release only a few days prior to it actually happening.
I think he could turn this out pretty quick. I'm guessing this will be another Beer Temple only release with online in advance ordering for Society members. Figure email goes out saying orders can start next day, leave the window open for a few days & then pickups starting a few days later? It's not like this will be first come/first serve where people need to take off work & line up to make sure they can get some.
and yes agree that we are getting close to 6 weeks.....
So much for 6 weeks.
Any Illinois members get any info? Starting to get a little frustrated with how things have gone this year.
We apologize for the lack of information thus far. We are working out a few last details before we send out emails to members. We had a few kinks in one of our tenant brewing spaces that has thrown a wrench into our regular plans, but we will have something for you all momentarily.
Oh shit, that's right, they brewed out of Aquanaut for their Illinois releases and Aquanaut bit the dust along with most of the Bow Truss locations (same douchebag owner).
Transient has always seemed to be good pals with Hailstorm though, I'm sure they were happy to pick up the pieces.
The first spontaneous fermented beer from the coolship is being released Saturday. Congrats to @TransientArtisanAles on the 1 year anniversary in Bridgman. Wish I could make it up this weekend.
New email with a release upcoming at Beer Temple (no info on what the release is going to be of course). Oh and Buckley and Kentuckley are Michigan only this year.
Looking for a proxy for the Anachronism release starting May 5th. Going to DLD, can exchange there. Will make worth your while.
If not, I just donated $1 to charity - look at me!
