Bellwoods Brewery by Hellwoods (2017)

Mat K. is drinking a Hellwoods (2017) by Bellwoods Brewery at Bar Hop Brewco

Whoa, lots of soy, cocoa, cherry and a huge thick fudge body. God, I love this beer. Good thing it's only wine glass or I'd be on the floor

Left Field Brewery by Greenwood

Hazy grapefruit juice, very fizzy on the tongue, damn good.

Bellwoods Brewery by Monogamy (Citra)

Mat K. is drinking a Monogamy (Citra) by Bellwoods Brewery at Wise Bar

Marvelously delicate fructose sweetness with a juice-bursting body. Excellent embodiment of the Citra Platonic ideal.

Bellwoods Brewery by Strawberry Milkshark

Mat K. is drinking a Strawberry Milkshark by Bellwoods Brewery at Wise Bar

A very balanced fruitiness, great thick-ass body, excellent mild sweetness. Can't taste any milk in it though, which is fine by me.

Bellwoods Brewery by Pink Guava Jelly King

Too astringent for me, needs more sweetness. Crazy jam-packed millennial crowd here with the occasional linux programmer thrown in.

Juicy, pulpy, beautiful.

County Durham Brewing by Milk Stout

Mat K. is drinking a Milk Stout by County Durham Brewing at Wenona Lodge

Sweet, malty, creamy. Pretty good on nitro, but still has a thin body.

Innis & Gunn by Session IPA

Mat K. is drinking a Session IPA by Innis & Gunn at The Osprey Eyrie

Well that's a very... Scottish IPA. Light pineapple flavour, delicate crystal hops, clear body, the very opposite of American IPAs.

Double Trouble Brewing by Hops & Robbers

Mat K. is drinking a Hops & Robbers by Double Trouble Brewing at Jiffy Lube Toronto (Dundas St.)

My checkins for this beer are like a graph of how my palate has changed over the last 5 years.

Draft

Tooth And Nail Brewing Company by Sucker Punch

Mat K. is drinking a Sucker Punch by Tooth And Nail Brewing Company at Bar Hop

More of a honeyed PA with extra alcohol than a DIPA. Clean, crisp mouthfeel. Overrated.

Rouge River Brewing Company by Upper Limits

Mat K. is drinking an Upper Limits by Rouge River Brewing Company at Bar Hop

Super-fruity, quite sweet, maybe a bit too much but otherwise excellent. Ripe peach aftertaste.

Lake of Bays Brewing Company by WILD NORTH: Pumpkin Ale

Mat K. is drinking a WILD NORTH: Pumpkin Ale by Lake of Bays Brewing Company

By the Great Pumpkin, it's that season again...my wife likes this much more than I do. Beer is mostly mild yam flavours, very littlw spice.

Half Hours on Earth by Control Bored

Mat K. is drinking a Control Bored by Half Hours on Earth

I'm supposed to be doing yardwork but I'd rather have another beer and enjoy the sun. This beer smells better than it tastes.

Collective Arts Brewing by Saint Of Circumstance

Mat K. is drinking a Saint Of Circumstance by Collective Arts Brewing

The white bird on the can is as smug as I am enjoying the last days of summer lingering like the rich, oily hibiscus flavour of these hops.
