Alpine Nelson

Monday, October 20, 2014 · Alpine Nelson is a Golden Rye IPA hopped with Nelson Sauvin hops. Finally getting to try some Alpine beer, thanks for the trade Ryan! The aroma starts really sweet and tropical before some dominate pine takes over. The pine is a huge flavor of the taste as well, but this […]

Orpheus Wandering Blues

Friday, October 17, 2014 · Orpheus Wandering Blues is an American Wild Ale brewed with blueberries cold pressed by Arden’s Garden. This beer clocks in at a fairly strong 7% ABV, and the pour on is very cloudy and very pink. Well, I wasn’t expecting this, this really doesn’t drink much like a sour OR a […]

Allagash Victoria

Thursday, October 16, 2014 · Allagash Victoria is a Belgian Strong Pale Ale brewed with white wine grapes added directly to the mash. This review is for the fresh 2014 vintage. Without a doubt the grapes are the strongest element to this beer. Still a beer, but the kind of thing I’d offer to a big wine […]

Clown Shoes Crunkle Sam

Tuesday, October 14, 2014 · Clown Shoes Crunkle Sam is an American Barleywine dry hopped with citra hops. As soon as I smelled and sipped this I knew this was a classic American Barleywine. The battle royal between hops and caramel malt is never ending. This pours a somewhat cloudy redish brown color. Fairly well balanced […]

Westvleteren XII

Monday, October 13, 2014 · Westvleteren XII is a Belgian Quadrupel. No that isn’t right, it is THE Belgian Quad! Before the recent explosion of trading and insta-whales this was the beer trading pinnacle. So hard to get and so well received, it used to be the perennial top beer on just about every one’s list. […]

This starts with a very nice aroma, smelling a good balance of sweet malt (lots of caramel) and big hops. Both the aroma and […]

Florida Beer Company Gaspar’s Porter

Saturday, October 11, 2014 · Florida Beer Company Gaspar’s Porter has a good bit of cocoa and roast on the nose, maybe a faint bit of smoke in there as well. The taste follows the nose fairly well, with a big dose of chocolate and roast. The smokiness it a bit stronger in the taste […]
