Something more familiar while I cook dinner
Went Christmas shopping today and totally struck out. I did pick up more Me beer.
Howdy all. A beer to match my current mood (hint: bitter, but high-quality). Elevated! :l
Had a half pound of shrimp for dessert coupled with another pint of Devils Backbone Vienna Lager.
Back home. Having this. Not a big fan of this beer but @scream made me drink it.

It is true. Most of my bourbon consumption is at son in law #1 house. He has a whole cabinet full. Wife gets pissed when I buy bourbon. Daughters get pissed when I drink bourbon.
Moonraker Brewing ft. Weldwerks — Moonwerks
Canned on 11/25/18
This beer pours with a murky bright yellow to light orange body. A semi-aggressive pour down the middle yields one and a half fingers of uniform frothy white head. The head retention is about average for the style, while the amount of lacing left on the glass is above average. Smell has hints of oranges, grapefruits, and papaya, along with some yeast notes. Overall, the scent is quite pleasant, though perhaps less potent than I expected. Smell is on the sweeter side for NEIPAs. This is undoubtedly due to Simcoe hops. There are bitter citrusy Galaxy-typical notes here as well, along with something else that I only ever get in Moonraker beers. I really like the taste of this, and if you have enjoyed Electric Lettuce or Dojo, you should too. Feel is a spot-on double NEIPA; nothing else to say here. Alcohol is hidden extremely well.
Overall, this is an excellent New England IPA and definitely a Moonraker double. I'm really enjoying this now, and I'm really glad I have another can to enjoy later.
4.25 | 4 | 4.5 | 4.5 | 4.5
Final Rating: 4.37 (rDev +0.5%) — mine is the 3rd rating
Off till Tuesday, and a Northwoods in hand. Life is grand. Cheers all.
Well consider me hornswaggled! I thought that I had had this beer before (Lord Lupulin), but it was Doctor Lupulin in which Raul had! Moving along... I was in the mood for a West Coast ipa after having an excellent NE one by Toppoling Goliath, and this one... an average hazy. I think I rated it at 3.53... and it’s score is 4.14 or some shit. All I can say is, when you bring the Hazy’s to Raul, you better bring your milkshake to the yard!:
That was the place. Got a dozen steamed oysters from the Eastern Shore, Va, a half dozen steamed clams, and a half pound of steamed spice shrimp. Cost $24 before tax. Good? Bad? Average?
Cheers, guys and gals!
Fantastic dreary rain filled day in AZ, for us this is a treat. Cheers!!
Idk man, I think there is a chance that something is off with this batch of LL. I just had the Battle of the Lords, which is the double version of what you're drinking, and it was by far the worst one I've had so far (I've tried 4 batches). Maybe try the next batch whenever it comes down to SoCal(???) to compare. Cheers!
Alright... I need donuts now...
Round 3. Fight!!
Very intrigued by this one. Windlass of Erasmus by Nightmare Brewing, started by a veteran brewer from Sand City in Long Island.
Half Acre's Now & Then IPA...
You need a better definition of “struck out”
So you’re high?
I understood 1/4-1/3 of this but feel like I agree.
Very nice brew, thanks @tzieser for the chance.

Three Floyds at it’s best - a big, slightly intrusive hop bomb fittingly named Army Of Hops. Love it.
Last night out of town (for now). Good bye, Alexandria.
I dig it too, initially a challenge; one has to re- calibrate the old taste buds, but I keep coming back for more ...
Correct. That is what I was talking about in my earlier post. What is everyone else talking about?
Other Half The Other Day... DDH, thanks @CanConPhilly, cheers!
Last one for the day is an Interboro/Other Half DIPA collab and it’s okay, nothing special. I would expect something much better from 2 breweries of their caliber. See you all tomorrow.
home from work and failed christmas shopping, getting things started off right tonight. i'm quite enjoying sweetwater being here in stl
Supposedly Aslin’s attempt at a “light lager” that comes across as a more full, slightly fruity Heineken, somehow:
It is light in ABV at 4.5%
And that's for real. Much like a virgin on prom night, Raul does not f*ck around!
Hornswaggled. Must be a beer related to the Veil beer "Hornswoggler."
Train Beer, BA
Will do. I’m going to up the rating as this one is drinking better as it warms. Whenever I see Revision though, I always buy.
A beer before I heat the skillet for some chicken breasts. This is a real good hazebro from the people at Weldwerks.
For a restaurant that’s probably doing alright, I do it at home for less.
Preach, Hunta man!
Let the Celebration flow, along with taco Thursday & tequila night. Why celebrate you may ask, last of the carpet being torn out of our house and wood look tile going into our bedroom (we built in 1999). And.....only 6 more working days this year. Yep last work day is 12/20 and I have to burn 20 hours of PA time..... be jealous BA's.....
Break a leg. Woops, sorry, that applies to the theater! My bad.
Excellent wild saison. Decent head retention/lacing. Aromas and flavors of lightly tart lemon, peach, pear, kiwi, mango, melon, strawberry, red/green apple, white grape/wine, oak, hay, straw, and grass; with moderate wheat, cracker, white bready malts; light peppercorn, oaken vanilla, leathery/musty funk, white wine vinegar, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate lactic tartness and yeast/oak tannin spiciness on the finish. Light carbonation, light-medium body, and fairly crisp finishing. Balanced grainy malt, lactic acid, and some wine tang/tannins in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing acidic/tangy dryness, no pucker. Very smooth, 5.5%. More carbonation would have been even better, but not complaints. Great Brett/bacteria complexity and wine barrel presence/integration; with a nice malt backbone against acidity. No residual sweetness from crisp dryness. 4
You are making me want to grab a Miller Lite. Job well done.
The Veil Brewery made me drink this beer. They were pissed that I had yet had one of their brews tonight. I am concerned that they may kick my ass. Speaking of Veil and kick ass, I am glad to see my friend @TheIPAHunter is back sharing his beer and life wisdom with us.
