Had two solid beers tonight..
2 questions, why are you yelling and do you have a vw bus?
Homebrew club tonight. Brought a growler of my English Porter; with Dubbel and White IPA bottles. Nothing but compliments about all, and especially about my brown porter; with a lot of praise from one of the members who was born in the UK. Said it was one of the most traditional and excellent tasting English porters he's had. Also one of the other members made one of the best session pale ales I've ever had. 100% Falconers flight and warrior for bittering. Mashed at 158 with a large portion of pale crystal and munich in the malt bill. It was so flavorful I could have easily guessed it at over 6%. It was 3.8%. I am definitely going to be using Falconers in my next IPA. Been a while since I have.
This was okay. Good head retention and dense lacing. Aromas and flavors light sweet/tart cherries, wheat, cracker, and toasted bread; with some herbal/grass/light peppery hops and a touch of yeast earthiness. Light yeast/hop spice and slight fruit tartness on the finish; with a balanced amount of fruit and malt flavors with moderate earthy hops. Aromas were really muted, taste was solid. Smooth and crisp finish; slight fruit acidity and wheat creaminess. Elevated but not drying on carbonation. Overall not too bad. There isn't a whole lot of flavor which leaves much to be desired; but everything was well balanced with no off flavors present. Fairly enjoyable.
Fricking excellent. Aromas and flavors of huge bright grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel and pine; with some moderate honey/cracker/bready malt balance and floral/grassy hop earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy hop bitterness and slight blood orange fruit tartness on the finish; with a very smooth and fairly crisp/sticky hop finish. Medium carb and body. Pretty much everything I love about New Dogtown; with added blood orange flavors and a higher ABV that doesn't sacrifice drinkability. Zero complaints as expected. I love Dogtown just as much.
Awesome Berliner weisse! Good head retention and lacing for expectations as well. Aromas and flavors of big tart lemon. lime, green apple, pear, white grape, strawberry, white vinegar, salt, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Nice tart/acidic and lightly puckering finish and mouthfeel; with balanced crackery wheat maltiness and light creaminess; with overall great robustness of flavors for 3.5%. Some nice moderate olive saltiness is present as well, leaning towards a gose level in salinity. Completely awesome.
Now for something a little hoppier - Odell IPA. Damn this is a great beer.
And even more so...Hoptimum
Burnt Hickory makes really good beer. And this one is going very well with my italian beef sandwiches!!!
Another person this evening making me hungry. Those beefs look really tasty. So does the beer
Cheers All BA's
The tunes keep me keeping on!
Son of a b word! You've got an open invite for beers at my house too. Now I'm super hungry...
They are both indeed scrumptious. What you don't see is me dipping the beefs in the pot of gravy. Mmmmmmm!!!
I've been on an IPA streak as of late, decided to switch it up a little tonight.
Awesome!!! I might throw some seasoned fries in the oven if this isn't enough.......
I have a bottle of Tank 7 in my fridge, waiting to be had. In fact it will be my first time with that beer. Cheers Mark!
Love me some Gonzo! Underrated, in my opinion.
I wish I could find some semi-fresh around here... ( Odell IPA ). Some poor schlub will eventually buy it & hopefully new will show up. So many ipAs & DIPAs coming into SW MO that the market is saturated. I will take that over 2 years ago...
Damn nice session IPA with bright grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, and pine hop flavors; with light caramel/toasted bread malt balance; with good robustness of overall flavor. Nice and crisp and fairly sticky hop finish. Saugatuck did a damn fine job on this new beer. They have really impressing me lately with the newer releases.
One of the absolute best table saisons I've ever had, and I will definitely be buying another full 6 pack. Big flavors of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness; with a nice crisp and earthy/spicy yeast finish. Very well carbonated. Very robust and flavorful for being under 4%. Love this stuff, Smuttynose rarely lets me down.
My go-to blonde ale. Robust creamed/roasted coffee flavors and balanced crackery malts. Always freshly available.
Delicious again this year; with bright grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, mango, melon, berry, and piney hops with moderate crackery malts; and a very crisp/sticky/resiny finish. Mosaic hops are one of my top new strain favorites lately.
Was just out in the hot tub, rain coming down fairly steady, but the Lightning Bugs are still trying to do their thing. Uinta Detour DIPA, gonna finish this Texas Rising if it takes all night...
Drink 'em if you got 'em.
All groupies must bow down.
CBS..finally got to try it! It was delicious, and I loved the maple in it. Just as with the KBS this year, I didn't get a whole lot of coffee. That's fine. I have the BS for the high coffee profile. I wish I was able to try more than a single 6.5 oz pour on this CBS .
My last sucks of the sixer. Oh well definitely will be seeing more of this on my table at some point.
and for dessert.....
Bells Amber. A real solid beer
Is that frikkin Chucky???
This is my 1000th beer rating and couldn't be happier with my choice!!! Happy 1000th!
Maredsous's Tripel.....A little heavier, darker and spicier then others. Makes it better.
I was going to be one and done with the Old Wooden Head bomber but I want dessert. So here's my first time with Velvet Merlin. Cheers LNBA's!!!
Done with the six pack of Enjoy By, Time to move on.
Old Raspy knows how to kick it.
Urban Chestnut Maxilmilian Weizenbock, the struggle for Texan independence grinds on...
Belhaven: 90/~ Wee Heavy
This one has been growing on me. I wasn't impressed with my first one but now on my 3rd and I appreciate it allot more. I think honestly, I am just to accustomed to big huge american wee heavys. This really isn't half bad. Although I am still not sure if I prefer Belhaven's regular wee heavy over this.
Call it Speed or Thrash or... just metal. Holy Wars rules the roost IMO! The solo is just devastating.
New beer tonight!
He's holding the world's greatest hop flower
Gf decided to join me and she drank my last Anderson Valley a Blood Orange Gose while I have a Modern Times Special Release Blackhouse.
You Californians and your crazy amount of great beer that is produced in your state!
