    Looking back, it's been an Ocelot day.


    Finally, an IPA by them. Well, one from Ocelot and Union Craft out of Baltimore - in Ocelot's packaging.

    I rated You'll Never Walk Alone a bit higher on tap than I would after the first sips today. It's got a little Orange Julius thing going on with a light burn. It seems to be stumbling out of the gate, so I'll give it time to recover and revisit my review.

    This guy hiding in the back of the fridge held up extremely for the months it has been in there. Peanut butter pops hard.

    Man, I love a good WCIPA. Obviously this is Monkish doing their twist on it, but I'm not mad at all. Citra & Nelson, FTW. Peace...

    Essence by Ten Hands. This brewery from Karlstad get a ton of hype, and I’m not sure why. Decent stuff, but not more than that.

    This is way more than just decent:

    von Trapp Helles Lager from a can labeled "BB 10/07/20"

    Pours into my shaker pint a clear golden with a bright white sudsy bubbly head and streams of bubbles ascending while the cap quickly drops to a ring and a film.

    Scent is fruit (apples and pears), lemon, sweet doughy bread, floral

    Taste follows the nose. Apple, pear, sweet doughy and bready malts and a faint hop note lending a crisp bitterness to the finish and a balance to the sweeter flavors. There's a soft lemon note. Some faint herbal hop notes. A mild metallic or mineral note which sounds off putting but is not.

    Mouth is very slightly creamy and the carbonation is soft. Finish is clean with a light bitterness.

    Drinkability is very high

    A subtle and well made lager. Didn't impress me quite as much as some of von Trapp's other offerings and I wonder if I should give it another try and look for a fresher can.

    Prairie BA Peanut Butter Bomb! Imperial Stout, 14.4% ABV. Pours black with a 1+ finger light brown head that left residue instead of lacing. That's a lot of head for a Prairie stout. Nose is slight peanuts. Taste is coffee, peppers, peanut butter, some bourbon, licorice, moderately bitter. Disappointed with only a moderate peanut presence. Decent mouthfeel, overall outstanding. Nose improved with warming.

    4.25/5 rDev -1.6%
    look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

    Really great late summer/early fall day to go to the zoo with our daughter and grandkids. Glad I only bought two of these instead of loading up, had hoped for more. Still decent, but much prefer BBA and RBA Bomb.

    I am taking exception because the tyrannosaur's space suit is deeply flawed. Although the contents of the can remind me quite a bit of Lush, which I love.

    Hiding behind the lens flare is a Captain Lawrence Orbital Tilt dry hopped with Mosaic. It’s quite a mediocre beer. Cheers!

    Nice. You started with one of the better ones by them, if not their best. So I figure I’d join you. Well, you’ve likely moved on, so I’ll follow you, including a move to outside.

    Tastes like eucalyptus and lemon.

    Wait, that might be the bug spray. Fuckers got me 3 times before I applied an ample dosage.

    Ugh. I wanted to try that one, but when it comes to older breweries that I'm a fan of like Great Lakes I'd rather have their classic brews instead of them trying to be trendy. Guess I might try it if I can get a single, but I won't buy a 4 or 6 pack (since I don't know what it comes in).

    From my trip to south Jersey. Solid old school IPA with some malt backbone.

    Wormtown Don't Worry can labeled PKGD: 7/22/20

    Poured into my tulip glass this beer is an opaque lemon custard yellow with a creamy ecru head. Decent staying power and some fluffy lace

    Scent is tropical fruits, pine, floral.

    Taste is muddled tropical fruit - nothing stands out in particular - with a touch of pine resin. Grapefruit. Lemon. Bitter astringent finish.

    Mouth is slick but not creamy or juicy.

    Hell of an IPA for only 5.8% ABV. Does seem somewhere in between NE IPA and West Coast style IPA. The tropical fruit notes say NE but the grapefruit and pine and the bitterness in the finish tell me West Coast. The mouthfeel is somewhere between the two. Either way I'm not going to worry. I'll just enjoy the beer.

    Review #1,000! Prairie Pirate Paradise Imperial Stout, 13% ABV. Pours black with a ring of brown bubbles, typical for a Prairie stout. Nose is rum, coconut, and chocolate. Taste follows, plus coffee, with moderate bitterness. Decent mouthfeel, if slightly under-carbonated, overall world-class.

    4.62/5 rDev +0.4%
    look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

    I have a thing for Rum Barrel-aged beers, so this slightly edges out BBA Paradise for my favorite Prairie beer.
