Malty National Brewing by Milkshake IPA

Derek B. is drinking a Milkshake IPA by Malty National Brewing at Home

I still can't get my head around a full bodied, sweet-ish, cloudy IPA. Do I like this? I think I might... Maybe?

New Belgium Brewing Company by Fat Tire and Friends: Fat Funk Ale (Allagash Collaboration)

Derek B. is drinking a Fat Tire and Friends: Fat Funk Ale (Allagash Collaboration) by New Belgium Brewing Company at Home

Best one of the sample pack by far. Soft and full. Belgian esters / fruity. Just a slight Brett funk, finishes dry. Gorgeous and sexy brew!

9 Mile Legacy Brewing by Anniversary Ale

Derek B. is drinking an Anniversary Ale by 9 Mile Legacy Brewing at 9 Mile Legacy

Nice beer for a rainy day in the taproom. Malty sweet. Some faint fruit notes. Slight carbonic bite. Needs a bit more time to smooth out.

9 Mile Legacy Brewing by Ella Pale Ale

Derek B. is drinking an Ella Pale Ale by 9 Mile Legacy Brewing at Spadina Freehouse

Light and fruity IPA. Good deck drink. A bit too bitter and grassy on the finish for me. Later: Skunked by sunlight within 5 mins!

Chocolate is reserved; not overwhelming. Best Phillips I've had so far.

From the cellar! Light fruity aroma and flavour. Subtle spice/peppery notes. Booze is well hidden!

Rich dark malt and chocolate aroma. Intense chocolate and toasty roasted malt flavours. Alcohol warmth is present but not overwhelming.

Ok, no mention of Brett or aging on bottle. But it's there. And I like it. Chocolate malts with lite cherry pie like flavours (from brett?)

30 minute walk in the sun. I know, I know: macro brew in a chilled glass. Still, went down easy. Beer gods have mercy on my soul.
