Firestone Walker Brewing Company by Luponic Distortion: Revolution No. 004

Mike H. is drinking a Luponic Distortion: Revolution No. 004 by Firestone Walker Brewing Company at Blue Diamond Ranch

Smells like a winner but these South African hops are more earthy. Slightly tangy yet still tropical. Don't really dig the white wine notes.

Hop Nuts Brewing by #IPA

Mike H. is drinking a #IPA by Hop Nuts Brewing at Hop Nuts Brewing

Tons of tropical fruits. Really bright & robust. Def bitter. A touch of ethanol making it candy-like but love the mango that comes through.

Joseph James Brewing Company by Rojo Joe

Mike H. is drinking a Rojo Joe by Joseph James Brewing Company at Yard House

Hmmm. Interesting. Floral. Citrusy. Some caramel notes. Nice malt. Mild joe which is fine b/c it still does lend a little somethin somethin.

Goose Island Beer Co. by Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout

Mike H. is drinking a Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout by Goose Island Beer Co. at Goose Island Pub

Happy Black Friday! Sticky, sweet cocoa, dark fruits & an overlay of coffee beans. A tad hot per usual but after half the bottle, who cares.

CraftHaus Brewery by Belgard

Mike H. is drinking a Belgard by CraftHaus Brewery at Granada Hills

Morning jolt. Light body & roast. Not picking up a ton of coffee and getting a slight sour finish. Tastes a little better with salty brunch.

Bad Beat Brewing by Big Blind

Mike H. is drinking a Big Blind by Bad Beat Brewing at Blue Diamond Ranch

Love the nose. Definitely a fruity Mosaic aroma. Pick up a lot of melon and apricot flavor. Mild bitterness. Pretty damn sneaky at 8.3%.

Triple 7 Brewpub at Main Street Station by Carlsbad IPA

Mike H. is drinking a Carlsbad IPA by Triple 7 Brewpub at Main Street Station at Triple 7 Restaurant & Brewery

Thanks Tom for bringing this down to the Trip. Lots of pineapple followed by the spicy Chinook. Semi-dry finish. Pour it again, Sam.

Lagunitas Brewing Company by Born Yesterday Pale Ale (2016)

Mike H. is drinking a Born Yesterday Pale Ale (2016) by Lagunitas Brewing Company at Blue Diamond Ranch

My fave part of this is still the nose. So dank. So tropical. The usual bitter pithy oils, mild onion, spice and slight ethanol burn finish.

Bootlegger's Brewery by FOMO

Mike H. is drinking a FOMO by Bootlegger's Brewery at Downtown Brew Festival

Disappointed Mouth Menace wasn't ready in time to bring, but this is a nice substitution. Super fresh berries in this cup of wet hop Mosaic.

Firestone Walker Brewing Company by Luponic Distortion: Revolution No. 003

Mike H. is drinking a Luponic Distortion: Revolution No. 003 by Firestone Walker Brewing Company at Slice of Vegas

Tastier on tap but still my least fave so far. On the sweeter side with lots of orange. Slightly spicy and floral but definitely less dank.

Hop Nuts Brewing by Back In My Day...

Mike H. is drinking a Back In My Day... by Hop Nuts Brewing at Hop Nuts Brewing

Yep. Almost reminiscent of what Stone used to taste like. Big grapefruit. High on bitterness but still clean & balanced. Lesgo Bryant & CHI!

New Holland Brewing by The Poet

Mike H. is drinking The Poet by New Holland Brewing at PKWY Rampart

A nice rounded flavor of roast and sweet. Not overly done with coffee, chocolate or biscuit. Good mouthfeel. Light bitterness. Go CLE!

Big Dog's Brewing Company by Peach, Love & Hoppiness

Mike H. is drinking a Peach, Love & Hoppiness by Big Dog's Brewing Company at Hi Scores Bar-Arcade - Blue Diamond

Dig it just as much as regular PLH. A little tart & sweet. Some tangerine juice too. Hops don't get lost. Refreshing for Neon Indian summer.

The Dudes' Brewing Company by Double TrunkĀ® DIPA

Mike H. is drinking a Double TrunkĀ® DIPA by The Dudes' Brewing Company at World of Beer

Not its freshest. Enjoy by date is about a month away. Even with that, it's too orangey caramel for my liking. Lemony. Floral. Meh. Go Nats!
