Day 307

Toppling Goliath
Fire, Skulls, and Money
NE IPA

I think I'm burning out on IPA again. Probably time for another IPAcation, or at least a serious reduction in the number of them consumed.

Day 306

Anchorage Brewing
Chomp The Wicked
IPA w/pineapple

Interesting. I liked the pineapple, but think different hop choices would work better. However, of someone offers me a can of this I won't turn it down.

Day 306

Upper Hand Brewing
Light
American light beer

More flavorful than most american lights, though that ain't saying much. Still, it would be a fine beer for an afternoon at the ballpark.

Day 305

Upper Hand Brewing
Yellow Hex
Gose-style ale?

Nicely thirst quenching after a long, oddly warm, day of work.

Day 304

Upper Hand Brewing
IPA

Solid IPA, mildly piney.

Part of that package of Michigan beers from the previous post.

Day 304

Upper Hand Brewing
Laughing Fish
Refreshing summer ale

The stars have aligned! A perfect conjunction of

* I was on the flatland side of the hill

* I remembered a pending package full of beer at a friend's house

* And I had the keys to their place.

So now I've got a package of tasty new beers to explore.

Day 303

3 Sons Brewing
Dope Down Under
IPA

Tasty. Interesting kind of sweet-grapefruit flavor.

Day 301

Toppling Goliath
Mosaic Dry Hop Pseudo Sue
Hazy IPA

Not so much hazy as foggy. Pretty good. Citrusy, with some other fruit overtones.

Day 301

Adroit Theory
Information Overdose
Schwarzbier

This is pretty tasty. A bit like a rauchbier, light mouthfeel, good maltiness, sessionable ABV.

Day 298

Elysian
Space Dust
IPA

Latest gift in the exchange stash at Lower Helicopter. Beerocaching - it's like geocaching, except with beers.

Day 292

Firestone Walker
Luponic Distortion #17
IPA

Not my favorite in the series, but that's a pretty high bar to reach. I'll still be drinking it regularly while it's available.

First new beer for 2021. 2020 was pretty dire in terms of new beers - the first year since 2013 where I've logged fewer than 300 new beers for the year.

Day 282

Lead Dog Brewing
Saturdays Are For The Brews
IPA

Ok, but not exceptional.

Day 282

Stickmen
Bananas on Fire
Dunkelweizen

This was a surprise - it's a little bit banana-y, but mostly a dunkel. Nicely malty, smooth, and stronger than it tastes.

Day 277

New Bohemia
Double Vision
NE-style hazy 2x IPA

Could be really good, but marred by alcohol taste.

Drinking that Space Dust this afternoon was a mistake - my productivity went to hell. At 9% ABV, this one ain't gonna help that situation. But it's late evening and I'm just puttering with hobby stuff now.

Day 277

Elysian
Space Dust
IPA

The latest drop box exchange. Doggo1 and I decided to chill with it at Lower Helicopter.

Day 276

New Bohemia
Captain F.G.S.
Baltic porter

Rich and tasty, this is a fine beer for sitting by the fire on chilly damp winter night.

Day 276

Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing
Ginger's Winter Warmer

This was a surprise. I read expecting something malty and heavy, but it's actually rather light. Nice spicy nip from the ginger and jalapeno.

Day 273

Founders
Backwoods Bastard
Oak barrel aged scotch ale

Ohhhhhh this is soooo tasty!

Celebrating progress on the office yurt. We're about an afternoon from having it fully enclosed and ready to start moving stuff in.
