Real Ale Brewing Company by Real Heavy

Andrew H. is drinking a Real Heavy by Real Ale Brewing Company

Strong and malty, but with a nice aromatic touch that lifts it. Surprisingly, doesn't feel overly heavy at all despite the maltiness!

Purchased at Spec's Wines, Spirits & Finer Foods

Lone Pint Brewery by Zythophile Mandarina Bavaria

Andrew H. is drinking a Zythophile Mandarina Bavaria by Lone Pint Brewery at The Hay Merchant

Lots of orange flavor, with a distinct earthy/bitter orange peel finish. Almost citrus overload, could use a touch of sweetness for balance.

Green Flash Brewing Company by West Coast IPA (2014-)

Andrew H. is drinking a West Coast IPA (2014-) by Green Flash Brewing Company at La Grande Orange

Bitter but balanced. Grapefruit aroma, malty with a piney bitter finish. Everything a West Coast DIPA should be.

Heretic Brewing Company by Evil Twin

Andrew H. is drinking an Evil Twin by Heretic Brewing Company at Papa Murphy's Park

Big pine resin flavor (are we sure this is only 45 IBU?); some brown sugar sweetness but bitterness still cuts through. Rather heavy.

Asahi Breweries by Asahi Super Dry

Andrew H. is drinking an Asahi Super Dry by Asahi Breweries at Shoki Ramen House

Sometimes I go back to an old law school joke and assert personal jurisdiction over Asahi. Flavorful for a macro, decent by any standard.

Drake's Brewing Company by 1500 Pale Ale

Andrew H. is drinking a 1500 Pale Ale by Drake's Brewing Company at Papa Murphy's Park

Solid malt backbone; more malt sweetness than hop aroma, I think. Lingering sweet-and-bitter finish with a hint of grapefruit.

Stone Brewing by Stone Ripper

Andrew H. is drinking a Stone Ripper by Stone Brewing at Thai Canteen

Melon, stone fruit, and tangerine flavor notes, piney bitter finish. Not really getting as much malt as I'd like for something this hoppy.

Berryessa Brewing Co. by Wet Hop Mini Separation Anxiety

Andrew H. is drinking a Wet Hop Mini Separation Anxiety by Berryessa Brewing Co. at Capitol Beer and Tap Room

Crisp, a little more carbonated than the typical IPA. Floral and vegetal with a bitter finish.

Jackrabbit Brewing Company by Bigwig Brown

Andrew H. is drinking a Bigwig Brown by Jackrabbit Brewing Company at Streets Pub and Grub

Chocolatey, nutty, slightly smoky malts blend with just enough citrus rind bitterness to give it depth. Solid.

Bike Dog Brewing Company by Klunker Red Ale

Andrew H. is drinking a Klunker Red Ale by Bike Dog Brewing Company at Old Soul at The Weatherstone

Bold, earthy coffee pairs nicely with sweet but not heavy caramel malts. Great balance of coffee, malt, and hops. Outstanding.

Six Rivers Brewery by Macadamia Nut Porter

Andrew H. is drinking a Macadamia Nut Porter by Six Rivers Brewery at zpizza Tap Room

Nutty but almost a little too sweet. Reminiscent of... Cocoa Puffs cereal?!

Ale Industries by La Niña Fresa

Andrew H. is drinking a La Niña Fresa by Ale Industries at zpizza Tap Room

Tastes a bit like a strawberry lemonade, except much less sweet and with a pineapple bite to it. Interesting and well executed.

Belching Beaver Brewery by Here Comes Mango!

Andrew H. is drinking a Here Comes Mango! by Belching Beaver Brewery at zpizza Tap Room

Smells dessert-like. Lots of mango flavor that complements the hops nicely. Excellent.

YOLO Brewing Company by Lemon Drop IPA

Andrew H. is drinking a Lemon Drop IPA by YOLO Brewing Company at Grant Park

Not very lemony. Decent balance, but the dominant flavor is pine. Not at all like the other IPA I've had with lemon drop hops.
