MadTree Brewing Company by Entropic Theory

Super fresh---canned 7/18! I love the name and Matrix-like artwork; and "what if I told you" that the beer is "juicy, and delicious"?

Unibroue by La Fin Du Monde

Russ P. is drinking a La Fin Du Monde by Unibroue

Hops are not the only way to get fruity flavors in beer! Yeasts and candy sugar make this rich with flavors of banana, lemon, and orange.

The Great White North Earned the The Great White North badge!

Smell of pineapple, taste of pine and grapefruit pith. Body is exceedingly crisp for a DIPA, which helps to make this a great summer beer.

Unibroue by Maudite

Russ P. is drinking a Maudite by Unibroue

Very good. I made the mistake of having most of this at too cold a temp! It needed to warm to 55 or so for the dark fruit notes to come out.

Great Lakes Brewing Company by Dortmunder Gold

Russ P. is drinking a Dortmunder Gold by Great Lakes Brewing Company

A few days past its BB date and still delicious.

Unibroue by Don de Dieu

Russ P. is drinking a Don de Dieu by Unibroue

This, I believe, is the 1st Unibroue beer that I had. In any case, it was love at first sip! Fine notes of almond, spice & candied apricot.

Hopped Down Earned the Hopped Down badge!
Unibroue by Blanche de Chambly

Russ P. is drinking a Blanche de Chambly by Unibroue

Like an early morning beermosa! A pillowy purity of body carries on it those classic witbier flavors (of cloves, coriander, etc.).

Unibroue by Éphémère Pomme (Apple)

Russ P. is drinking a Éphémère Pomme (Apple) by Unibroue

My favorite wheat beer, and the perfect beer for such a muggy night as this. Has been a few years since I've had! Green apples out the azz.

Great Lakes Brewing Company by Lake Erie Monster

Now THIS is a juice bomb (a pineapple juice bomb). NE IPA's are for wussies. ;-)

Stone Brewing by Stone Enjoy By 07.04.17 Unfiltered IPA

Russ P. is drinking a Stone Enjoy By 07.04.17 Unfiltered IPA by Stone Brewing

Nice malty, orangey taste. Yes, I'm a week late with this; in the words of Ahnold to Johnny Cab, "Sue me, dickhead".

Middle of the Road (Level 2) Earned the Middle of the Road (Level 2) badge! I Believe in IPA! (Level 10) Earned the I Believe in IPA! (Level 10) badge!
Great Lakes Brewing Company by Eliot Ness

Russ P. is drinking an Eliot Ness by Great Lakes Brewing Company

BBD of 7/10 and still tastes perfect. Butterscotch and creamy almonds---yum!

Founders Brewing Co. by Lizard of Koz (2016)

Russ P. is drinking a Lizard of Koz (2016) by Founders Brewing Co. at White Oak Marathon

Wonderful blueberry tartness, and no alcohol burn whatsoever! I do see how it can be so divisive, but I love it. (From 7:30ish.)

Founders Brewing Co. by reDANKulous

Russ P. is drinking a reDANKulous by Founders Brewing Co. at White Oak Marathon

I couldn't taste as much tropical fruit this time. Oh well---your palette can change from day to day! (From 7:30ish.)

3 Floyds Brewing Company by Permanent Funeral

Russ P. is drinking a Permanent Funeral by 3 Floyds Brewing Company

Deserves every bit of its praise. Perhaps the most perfect ex. of the 3 Floyds IPA, with its strange combination of dryness and fruitiness.

Founders Brewing Co. by reDANKulous

Smells like Hawaiian Punch, and the first couple sips have lots of tropical fruit! Bitterness really builds on the palate with addt'l sips.
