    Howdy all. A beer to match my current mood (hint: bitter, but high-quality). Elevated! :l

    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

    [​IMG]

    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

    Cheers!

    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?

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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%

    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.

Yep last work day is 12/20 and I have to burn 20 hours of PA time..... be jealous BA's.....

    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

    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.
