Stone Brewing by Stone Ripper

Bryan R. is drinking a Stone Ripper by Stone Brewing

As much as Stone has updated recipes, this still fits within a more "classic" approach, with modern sensibility. More bitter than expected.

Founders Brewing Co. by PC Pils

Bryan R. is drinking a PC Pils by Founders Brewing Co.

Let's be clear: this is an IPA/L, right? Never mind the ABV. Modern hop use for an early 2000s ABV content. Whatever it is, it's delicious.

Founders Brewing Co. by Doom (2017)

Never thought I'd like a barrel aged IPA. I list of hops, but the vanilla of barrel is amazing with ... Simcoe? Beautiful.

DESTIHL Brewery by Wild Sour Series: Blueberry Gose

Unfortunately easy to drink. Not a ton of nuance, but you know what you're getting. Didn't realize how fast it was disappearing.

Breakside Brewery by La Tormenta

a $7 kettle sour that's refreshing with a nice hop zip? Yeah that sounds great for 22oz. Acidic pop plays well with berry like hops.

Modern Times Beer by City of the Dead

Coffee/chocolate/vanilla/char all blend together surprisingly well. No one overpowers. Smartly made. A "coffee imperial stout" for all.

Redhook Brewery by Big Ballard

Get what they're doing here. Smells like a modern IPA, tastes like one made 10 yrs ago thx to malt/bitterness component. At least it's clear

Least bitterness of 3 TH beers I've tried. Mosaic galore. Some of that onion.

NEIPA noob. More bitterness than built up in my mind. Juice comparisons are fair, in look and aroma. Citrus flavors def linger longer.

Aslin Beer Company by Special Drops: Bringo!

Trying to get the hang of NE IPA. this is a fun example. Not thick, but full of body with flavor that lingers for days. No bitterness.

Bryan R. is drinking a Scratch 212 - Chocolate Stout by Tröegs Independent Brewing

May be a little oxidized. Slight cardboard character. Chocolate still hanging around. Always wondered about this series of beers...

Starr Hill Brewery by Mango Habanero King of Hop

Bryan R. is drinking a Mango Habanero King of Hop by Starr Hill Brewery

Love this series. Collection of "experimental" IPA, but never intimidating. All flavors are noticeable, but delicate. Never overwhelming.

Oskar Blues Brewery by Hotbox Coffee IPA

Yes. A million times yes. Who knew Simcoe was destined for a soulmate of coffee and not Citra? "Green" flavor with delicate roast. More plz.
