    Excellent NEIPA. Fantastic lasting rocky head retention/thick foamy lacing. Aromas and flavors of big tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew, watermelon, red apple, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, and pine hops; with moderate wheat, cracker, biscuit dough malts; and herbal, floral, grassy hop earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; balanced creamy/silky/bready malts, sticky hops, and some resins/rinds in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing lingering resin dryness; slight lingering hop astringency, but not overwhelming. Very smooth, nicely soft, not overly aggressive. Minimal warmth of 6.8%. Awesome El Dorado, Azacca, Calypo profile. Very juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank/earthy hops; with a great balancing wheat/oat/malt backbone. Minimal residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness. Well made style example. 4.03

    I remember the first time I had the base variant of this beer, and I was blown away. This DDH is even cloudier than I remember subsequent iterations, but it's tasty as a MFer. Cheers!

    Excellent witbier. Fantastic fluffy head retention/foamy lacing. Flavors of big lightly tart/tangy cherries, lemon, orange peel, coriander, peach, pear, melon, apricot, red apple, peppercorn, and light banana/clove/bubblegum yeast; with moderate wheat, cracker, white bread dough malts; lighter notes of herbal, floral, woody, grassy hops and yeast earthiness. Similar/muted aromas. Light herbal, floral, woody, grassy bitterness; peppery yeast spiciness; and cherry/wheat tang/tartness on the finish. Medium-high carbonation, medium body, and fairly crisp finishing. Very creamy/silky/grainy wheat, light sticky hops and cherry tang/acidity in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing bitter/spicy/carbonated dryness. No cloying/astringency. Amazingly smooth, soft, and refreshing; no warmth of 5.8%. Awesome balance of classic Wit yeast, spices, and pale/wheat malts; with solid noble hops and cherry juice presence. Was expecting more cherries, but base style is spot on. 4.03

    Out in the road again, back in charming Alexandria, VA. Some Shiner Bock while I wait for my "authentic Coney dogs." Let's see how that stack up to the ones back home in Detroit.

    I have never tried that, but I have had their chili over rice and chili over spaghetti, pretty tasty and very reasonably priced. Enjoy!
    ps- Rustico which carries a great draft list is a few streets north of there.

    Another from @The-Adjunct-Hippie. Outstanding German pils. Great fluffy head retention/spotty foamy lacing. Aromas and flavors of big lightly tart limes, citrus peel/rind, cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, wood, peppercorn, and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, woody, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness; and light lime tang/tartness on the finish. Medium-high carbonation, light-medium body, and moderate crisp/clean finishing. Balanced bready/grainy malts, sticky hops, and light acids/resins/rinds in the mouthfeel. Moderate increasing bitter/carbonated dryness; no hop astringency. Perfectly clean lager flavors, no fruity/yeasty notes. Very flavorful/refreshing, not watery for 5%. Perfectly balanced between vibrant limes, clean pils malts, and German noble hops. Zero residual sweetness with crisp dryness. They couldn't have possibly done it any better IMO. Went down so easily. 4.15

    I really enjoyed it, took the bottle solo. Assertively sour but not extreme, gentle sweetness offsets that to some degree. Vanilla adds a nice touch. If you like dark sours you’ll dig it, glad I sprung for this one.

    I don’t get to Tired Hands too often anymore but the last few years I’ve always been happy with my bottled purchases, can’t recall
    Having one I didn’t enjoy.

    That sounds tasty, I do enjoy a good dark sour. Glad it falls in line with their other bottles, personally I think their bottle should be more hyped than their cans.

    Nice Uinta Test Phaze IPA here....definitely would buy again if it's fresh. Ah....the Hammond B3 organ with a Leslie speaker. It was the staple for "rock" bands playing Uriah Heep or REO SpeedWagon, or a few other 70's bands I'm sure. Uriah Heep may have been the loudest band (Kiss 2nd) I ever saw. All those amps in the Hollywood Sportatorium.......a big ass metal shed.....Cheers BA's!
