AleSmith Brewing Company by Evil Dead Red

Papa J. is drinking an Evil Dead Red by AleSmith Brewing Company

Tropical notes are front and center. Hops are piney, pleasant, but no real distintion overall.

Stone Brewing by Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0

Papa J. is drinking a Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0 by Stone Brewing

It's hot and I'm sober: This could fix both. Drinking this "liquid poem to the glory of the hop" in honor of those braving the fires.

The Hop Concept by Tropical & Juicy

Papa J. is drinking a Tropical & Juicy by The Hop Concept

Tropical notes are not overdone, dankness predominates, and crispness is unsoftened by the DIPA roots. What's not to like?

The Bruery by Mash & Coconut (2017)

Papa J. is drinking a Mash & Coconut (2017) by The Bruery

Overwhelms the coconut receptors. Smooth, strong, desserty. Chocolate isn't an ingredient, but my tongue disagrees. A lot to process.

Unibroue by Providential Belgian-Style Golden Ale

Time to give this another try. Not Chimay quality, but enjoyable.

Grupa Żywiec by Żywiec Porter

Papa J. is drinking a Żywiec Porter by Grupa Żywiec

Quite good. Smooth, malty delivery of a balanced, flavorful porter. Was closer to room temperature than refrigerator, and that works well.

Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. by Lizard's Mouth

Papa J. is drinking a Lizard's Mouth by Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co.

Had this 2 yrs ago. Too long an interval considering its qualities. Freshly mown grass, pleasant hoppiness, DIPA sweet and bitter goodness.

10 Barrel Brewing Co. by Apocalypse IPA

Papa J. is drinking an Apocalypse IPA by 10 Barrel Brewing Co. at Newbury Park

Lovely, maybe because I'm so hot. Not bad for something from Oregon (I kid). 6.8 ABV is hardly noticeable. I may need another to be sure.

It's over 100° today, ad this just really hits the spot. October can't come soon enough.

Very light, but perfectly refreshing. Homemade pizza keeps it flowing.

Lagunitas Brewing Company by Born Yesterday Pale Ale (2016)

Papa J. is drinking a Born Yesterday Pale Ale (2016) by Lagunitas Brewing Company at Newbury Park

7% solution makes this pale ale pleasant. Has some mild hoppiness and slight bitterness, but works for this style.

This literally exploded from the bottle. We're talking ceilings, walls, adjacent people, urmom, everybody. What's left didn't taste bad.

Brewery Ommegang by Great Beyond

Papa J. is drinking a Great Beyond by Brewery Ommegang at Newbury Park

I think that I shall never hear, a poem as lovely as a beer. Poems are made by fools, I fear; but Ommegang can make a beer.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. by Tropical Torpedo

Papa J. is drinking a Tropical Torpedo by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. at Newbury Park

Nice, sessionable IPA. Not up to Hoptimum standards, but I like it. Interesting to taste side by side with other Sierra Nevada offerings.

This just keeps getting better with every tasting. Hard to understand why I don't drink this more often.
