    Excellent NEIPA. Great rocky head retention/foamy lacing. Aromas and flavors of big tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, white grape, citrus peel/zest, light peppercorn, and pine hops; with moderate wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, light honeyed malts; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation/body; creamy/bready/grainy malts, some sticky hops, and light resins/rinds in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing lingering bitter dryness, no hop astringency. Very smooth, nicely soft, minimal warming 7.1%. Awesome Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo, and Nelson Sauvin profile. Very juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank/earthy hops; nice wheat/oat/malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness from lingering resin dryness. Really well made stuff!

    It's not very prevalent, shows up as more of an accent as the beer warms up. I really wouldn't perceive it if I didn't know it was there, I enjoyed it though!

    Bud ones are the best Chelada/Michiladas as far as I am concerned. Try the Picante next, it's nearly identical to the base Bud, a bit more pepper notes.

    Fantastic milkshake NEIPA. Aromas and flavors of big juicy/lightly tart/tangy blueberries, tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, gooseberry, citrus peel/zest hops; with moderate vanilla, cream, brown sugar, marshmallow, wheat, biscuit dough malts; light notes of cinnamon, allspice, peppercorn, pine, and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness. Mild pine, citrus peel/zest, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness; and spicy cinnamon/allspice on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; very creamy, silky, bready malts/sugars; light sticky hops/spice in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing lingering bitter/spicy dryness; no cloying/astringency. Super smooth/soft, minimal warming 8.6%. Not as much spices as expected, but still just as impressive as their other NEIPAs. Fantastic balanced juicy/light dank Citra hops, blueberries, sugars, and wheat/oat/malts. Not overly sweet from lingering dryness. Will get again as with the rest of their stuff. Love the whole series.

    Always excellent, one of my favorite classic tasting Midwest IPAs. Aromas and flavors of bright/juicy red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pineapple, citrus peel/rind, light peppercorn, and pine hops; with moderate toasted biscuit, light caramel malt balance; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Balanced sticky/resinous hops and creamy/bready malts in the mouthfeel. Fairly crisp with light-moderate increasing resin/rind bitter dryness, no hop astringency. Chinook, Cascade, Centennial. Can't go wrong with those hops. Great bready Munich malt balance without being overly sweet. Been grabbing singles a lot more often recently, than I was last year. Would get cans, but they don't date any of them yet. Bottles will remain the mainstay format for now.

    10/12/18. We just got them a month or two ago. I thought all of their stuff was holding up really well for the age. Date ranges were into November for some other stuff. Hope they send more soon. The 300 Variants are way better IMO.

    Well, here's one of the few lactose/milk sugar IPAs I like. Employing a "small dose", this one's carbonation hangs in there more than the rest.

    [​IMG]

    Even with a "small dose" of lactose (as per label), this is the resulting appearance towards the end.
    Taste, mouthfeel, and finish are still way better than the result after a larger "dose" of the evil :crazy_face::smirk::nerd: milk sugar.

    [​IMG]

    The first batch of Lushsicle was still the best.
    I hope the next one dials back the lac'.

    Amazing batch this year as expected. Aromas and flavors of big juicy/tart/tangy red raspberries, fruit skin/seeds, raisin, red grape, plum, pear, red apple, pepper, candi sugar, and toasted bread; with some herbal hops and yeast earthiness. Touch of banana/clove. Balanced fruit tartness and peppery yeast spice on the finish against malt sweetness. Medium carbonation/body, and fairly crisp finishing. Some bready/grainy creaminess, fruit tannins, and lightly slick/syrupy in the mouthfeel. Good dryness from fruit acidity and yeast spice; never too sweet. Very drinkable, minimal warming 9.2%. Already got 4 packs. This shows great balance of Belgian yeast character, without just being a straight over the top fruit beer. Love Rubaeus too, this is basically just the imperial Belgian version. One of my favorite fruit beers of all time. I wouldn’t mind Cerise coming back either. Super jammy. Will keep buying more.

    Cinnsanity by Weyerbacher.


    [​IMG]


    Aromas of cinnamon, plum, and sticky sweet bourbon on the nose. Slight Belgian candi sugar, and lots of malt stickiness.

    Flavor starts with cinnamon, then piney hops, then a wave of brown sugar, plum, and bourbon sweetness. Slight apples and figs remain on the finish.

    Feel is sticky and hot, with cutting dryness and remnants of resins and more cotton-like dryness on the finish.

    I gave it a 4 out of 5. Good stuff!

    NB Voodo Ranger Liquid Paradise IPA, heading to the hot tub, need to do it just to escape the dog, farting up a storm :grimacing::poop::poop:
    The wife claims he had only dog food today. I know I gave him a couple of pieces of some pork with mexican spice last night. Won't do that again

    Outstanding DIPA. Fantastic rocky head retention/thick soapy lacing. Aromas and flavors of big mandarin orange/juice, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, blueberry, citrus peel/zest, wood, light peppercorn, and pine hops; with moderate honey, caramel, bread dough, toasted biscuit malts; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; creamy/bready malts, some sticky hops, and light resins/rinds in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing lingering bitter dryness, no hop astringency. Dangerously smooth, not aggressive, mild increasing warmth of 8.9% after the finish. Amazing 100% Mosaic profile. Extremely juicy and fairly dank/earthy hops; with a great balanced dark/bready malt backbone. Light residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness. Loved the hop profile as expected. Spot on Midwest tasting style.

    So, @vabeerguy, you repeatedly speak of your missus hiding your bourbon and taking your toys away. I say it is time to man up @vabeerguy !

    Your assignment for tomorrow is to hide your wife's cheap white wine until you get the bourbon back. I will be on the road so not checking in as often as usual but it would be good to get a report from you tomorrow on your progress with this task !

    Yours in beer and whiskey also ! @scream !

    Ending by finishing this howler of Ozark DIPA.





    Two songs off the same disc that tied together great. Never thought these guys got their due as far as most people know little past Left Overture & Point of Know Return. Had the live video up, but it was too abbrievated IMHO. The intor of the studio version surely reminds me of driving through west Kansas!
