Simcoe- and this is funky. Vinyl sounds incredible. Love RLT
Good evening BA, hope everyone had a good day back at work. Bit of a slow start this morning it seems. Hope everyone is recovered from yesterday.
This was quite nice. Nice head retention and dense soapy lacing down the glass. Aromas and flavors of big grapefruit juice, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, and pine; with moderate wheat/cracker/bready malt; and floral/grassy hop earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind bitterness; medium bodied; balanced wheat creaminess and sticky/resinous hops in the mouthfeel. Touch of tartness/acidity from the grapefruits. Light-moderate increasing resinous dryness; slight lingering hop astringency. Well balanced grapefruit/hop flavors with a nice malt backbone for the 4.4% ABV. Very enjoyable and flavorful. 3.68
Nice saison. Aromas and flavors of peach, pear, apple, peppercorn, white grape, clove, and light banana/bubblegum; moderate wheat/cracker/biscuity malt; and some herbal/grassy spice and yeasty earthiness. Light-moderate peppery yeast, wheat tang, and fruit tartness on the finish. Medium bodied; balanced bready wheat and peppery spice stickiness in the mouthfeel. Moderately dry and pretty refreshing. Very unique; good balance and complexity. A bit maltier than I would have preferred; but it was still dry enough from yeast/fruit. 3.68
Excellent sour amber! Aromas and flavors of big tart lemon, raspberry, strawberry, cherry, plum, pear, apple, peach, apricot, white wine, orange peel, white pepper, toasted oak, hay, funk, and leather; with moderate biscuity, light caramel/nutty malts. Moderately tart with yeast/tannic oak spiciness on the finish. Medium bodied; balanced sticky tannins and grainy/creamy malts in the mouthfeel. Drying finish from oak/spicy tannins. Very smooth and complex. Very tart, but not actually all that sour/acidic. Lots of balancing barrel and bready malt character. Very impressive. 4.1
I love me some Other Half Double Mosaic Dream , and since it's being released again this weekend I guess I can deplete the rest of my stash, cheers !
Getting down to the last of these. The malt is definitely kicking in. I was ecstatic about the Mets, but here go the Pirates blowing another one.
... No pics but Still trying to kill my keg of mosaic single hop IPA kegged end of June *homebrew* (6.5%) to make room for my first true Oktoberfest Marzen which has been in my lager fridge at 35* since March 30th when it was brewed / kegged second week of april
You like Ana? Hmmmmm.....
I have to be honest and tell you that I wasn't impressed with her cooking on Next food network star.
Maybe my last one, Sixpoint Tesla
This is big...and sweeet.
Werk Force Brewing out of Plainfield.
Having an Empyrean Carpe Brewem Barrel Aged Barley Wine from Lincoln, NE (40 minutes from here).
Glad to say that this is possibly the best Barleywine I have ever had.
Just perfectly executed. Best when fresh, though, as some of the great plum and lemon flavors have faded a bit now (it says best by July).
Smog City Snugglebug batch 2
Lots of peeps don't like this beer, but I think it perfectly captures the feel, warmth, and flavors of fall. Just beautiful. Pumpkin, spices, crust....all while not being too sweet or gimmicky.
Looking forward to many more.
Collaboration between Evil Twin and Westbrook, in any case, first time trying anything Westbrook. Cheers!
So the Red Sox are playing the Padres, so I feel obligated to drink West Coast. A guy behind home plate, in the stands is rocking a Green Flash t-shirt.
Very nice as usual. Flavors of lightly tart lime, with balanced biscuity/graham cracker malt, and creamy vanilla/lactose/toasted marshmallow flavors. Lightly tart/bitter finish. Medium bodied; with some grainy/creamy malt/lactose in the mouthfeel. No cloying sweetness. Very smooth and refreshing. This has low ratings, but I've always been a fan.
Incredible American porter as usual. Big flavors of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toasted dark bread, and light smoke/charred malts; with moderate herbal/spicy/citrus peel hop flavors. Moderate herbal/spicy hop and roast/char bitterness on the finish. Smooth/creamy mouthfeel; with some hop stickiness and chalky roast as well. Light-moderate dryness. Always amazing stuff. Pretty much the definition of the American porter style for me. This is a super fresh bottle, I like it even more near the end of the "Best By" range so it is less hoppy/drying and more rich, creamy, and malty.
Always incredible stuff. Flavors of huge bright grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, and pine; with some honey/light caramel malts; and floral/grassy hop earthiness. Good sized pine/citrus rind bitter finish; with a crisp/sticky and lightly grainy mouthfeel. Very dry and delicious. This feel much brighter and dank on hop flavors in addition to the grapefruit, than a similar dated classic sculpin I had last weekend. Need to revisit that review I think.
Always fantastic IPA. Flavors of huge juicy grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon/orange peel, and pine hops; with honey/biscuit/light caramel malt; and floral/grassy hop earthiness. Medium pine/rind bitterness; balanced sticky/resins and light creaminess in the mouthfeel. Moderate dryness, highly drinkable, zero hop astringency. Simply another of many classic IPAs I will always love. All C-Hops with Amarillo, decent malt presence but still very drying. Classic hop flavors will never go out of style for me.
Gotta love a short work week! About to pound a couple of these and watch Hard Knocks.
Sounds like the sort of thing beer was invented to deal with. On an utterly unrelated note, could you please post your address? I've got a few bills I'd like your wife to pay.
An incredibly balanced, dark, smokey stout. Kalamazoo makes a great companion to chili!
I think I found my new favorite glass!
verdict, if you were a fan of the regular walker reserve, you'll be in love
Limped in to LNBA & ending on a Lagunitas 12th of never ale. LNBA 4lyfe
I mean I don't know how much I like her as a person or whatever, but I can honestly say that I wanted to taste every meal that she made. Just got the book recently, figure me and my lady will try out some recipes and see what happens...
Other Half / Omnipollo / Tired Hands - Debbie Downer . Still like the way this one tastes, I didn't think my taste buds would appreciate for this long after canning...
Lovin' on that guitar poster in the background!
Hit a few places today! Found some rare beers as well!!!
Stronger than Fiction!
How old is that bottle?
You don't find this one in Cali anywhere!!!
Chet was such the man and Les Paul too, with that style of playing. (In more recent years, Tommy Emmanuel.) RIP - Chet and Les. I have a Gibson Les Paul and Gretsch Chet Atkins model and NO way I could ever sound that good! ( *sigh* ) 'Just pioneering Masters of the instrument.
...I know ... sorry just had a total guitar geek moment ...
Amazing right here guys!!!
Yeah, Beer Lab HI is the new kid in town, but I really like what they are doing.
So you just assumed it was a pottery share!
No it shouldn't be, but there's lots more in the same boat. Check dates it'll save you a lot of money and disappointment.
