6 days until the big 3-0. 10 beers until the big 3-0-0.
#281 Goose Island Sofie (ABV 6.5%)
Raisins, wheat, banana, vanilla. Thumbs Up!
#282 Victory Brewing Co. Summer Love (ABV 5.20%)
Not sure if I was palate hacked from drinking Sofie, but I was not a fan. Extremely heavy wheat flavor and nothing else. Side Thumb.
#283 21st Amendment Hop Crisis Imperial IPA (ABV 9.7%)
Limited release. Hops, hops, hops! light A hint of pine, but mostly hops. Thumbs Up!
#284 Knee Deep Brewing Co. Hop Shortage Triple Hopped IPA. (ABV 11.3%)
Love! Love! Love! Strong floral and citrus aroma. Heavy on the hops, pine, caramel notes, grassy/earthy finish. Will definitely goes on the list of my favorite IPAs. Thumbs Up!
#285 Dogfish Head Aprihop (ABV 7%)
The verdict is still out on this one. I’m a fan of the apricot, but the apricot and hops mash-up wasn’t as awesome as I hoped it would be. 2 o’ clock Thumb for the idea and for not being terrible.
#286 Evil Twin I Love You With My Stout (ABV 12%)
Smooth almost silky. Coffe, raisins, hints of both chocolate and vanilla, mild hoppy finish.
#287 Anderson Valley Summer Solstice (ABV 5%)
Honestly… it tastes like coors light. Sorry. Floppy Fish Thumb.
#288 Three Taverns White Hops (ABV 6.5%)
Heavy lemon, mild hops, tart finish. Thumbs Up! Side Note: If you’ve never eaten at True Foods at Lenox… Do it!
#289 Terrapin Rye Cubed Triple Rye India Pale Ale (ABV 8.3%)
Citrus hops and sweetness from malts. Thumbs Up!
#290 21st Amendment Monk’s Blood (ABV 8.3%)
Raisins(the can says figs), cinnamon, hint of vanilla. Good stuff. Will be an awesome beer for the winter. Thumbs Up!
