Southern Tier Brewing Company by Where The Helles Summer?

Dave W. is drinking a Where The Helles Summer? by Southern Tier Brewing Company at Brandywine Hundred

A delicious hot weather beer! Not quite as crisp as a Pilsner, but still light bodied. 4.6 ABV without the "decaf" quality of a session IPA.

Bell's Brewery by Hopsoulution (2016)

Dave W. is drinking a Hopsoulution (2016) by Bell's Brewery at Brandywine Hundred

Really big. Very tropical (mostly pineapple) and a little scruffy. Big loads of humulus lupulus in this one.

Oskar Blues Brewery by Dale's Pale Ale

Dave W. is drinking a Dale's Pale Ale by Oskar Blues Brewery at Bella Coast

Dale's is rarely a bad choice, but today in particular, when the restaurant ran out of 60 Minute IPA, it was a good fallback. Hopped Up (Level 14) Earned the Hopped Up (Level 14) badge!

Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company  by J.A.W.N. Juicy Ale w/ Nugget

Dave W. is drinking a J.A.W.N. Juicy Ale w/ Nugget by Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company at Brandywine Hundred

Very respectable Nugget showcase. Nice little jawn.

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery by Romantic Chemistry

Dave W. is drinking a Romantic Chemistry by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery at Brandywine Hundred

Those ingredients really do have romantic chemistry. The mango, apricot, and ginger -- can't tell where one flavor ends and the next begins. I Believe in IPA!  (Level 25) Earned the I Believe in IPA! (Level 25) badge!

Lagunitas Brewing Company by Lucky 13 (Mondo Large Red Ale)

Dave W. is drinking a Lucky 13 (Mondo Large Red Ale) by Lagunitas Brewing Company at Brandywine Hundred

Second time drinking. Noticing more of a molasses note in there this time. Lots of sweetness, and lots of hops to balance it out.

Anchor Brewing Company by Go West! IPA™

Dave W. is drinking a Go West! IPA™ by Anchor Brewing Company at Brandywine Hundred

Says "west" in the name, but definitely not a West Coast style IPA. More English, if anything. Biscuity and spicy, and distinctively Anchor.

Flying Dog Brewery by Single Hop Ella

Dave W. is drinking a Single Hop Ella by Flying Dog Brewery at Brandywine Hundred

A pineapple and grapefruit hop extravaganza. Sweet and sappy in a way that prods the back and sides of your tongue. Overall pretty swell.

Four String Brewing Company by Brass Knuckle

Dave W. is drinking a Brass Knuckle by Four String Brewing Company at Brandywine Hundred

Good hops, resolving into slightly grassy aftertaste. Can I complain that the carbonation is not quite strong enough? Still, sessionable. American Craft Beer Week (2016) Earned the American Craft Beer Week (2016) badge! Pale as the Moon (Level 8) Earned the Pale as the Moon (Level 8) badge!

Persephone Brewing Company by American Pale Ale

Dave W. is drinking an American Pale Ale by Persephone Brewing Company at Brandywine Hundred

A nearly perfect APA. Medium-bodied and fruity, with floral hopiness and just the right amount of grainy malt support. Bravo, Persephone!

DESTIHL Brewery by Dosvidanya Rye Barrel (2015)

Dave W. is drinking a Dosvidanya Rye Barrel (2015) by DESTIHL Brewery at Llama Tooth

Fantastically rich and complex! Sweet and dense with layers of sticky prune, chocolate, wood effects, and just the right spike of booziness.

Voodoo Brewing Company by Killapilz

Dave W. is drinking a Killapilz by Voodoo Brewing Company at Llama Tooth

Was looking for something crisp to go with my mango chutney grilled chicken breast with poblano honey sauce. This was pretty good. Hopped Up (Level 13) Earned the Hopped Up (Level 13) badge!

Lagunitas Brewing Company by Lucky 13 (Mondo Large Red Ale)

Dave W. is drinking a Lucky 13 (Mondo Large Red Ale) by Lagunitas Brewing Company at Ulysses American Gastropub

Let's not worry too much about the style designation. Very Hoppy, rich, and big-bodied. Not all that "red," but, hey... Photogenic Brew (Level 10) Earned the Photogenic Brew (Level 10) badge! Paint the Town Red (Level 3) Earned the Paint the Town Red (Level 3) badge!

SanTan Brewing Company by Devil's Ale

Dave W. is drinking a Devil's Ale by SanTan Brewing Company at Brandywine Hundred

Really good. Predominated by husky, savory hop flavor, but doesn't taste like an IPA. I appreciate when brewers respect a pale ale's limits.
