Uinta Brewing Company – Detour Double India Pale Ale (American Double)

  • 9.50% ABV
  • I hate M1. She keeps buying me Imperials/Double’s when I tell her to stop that shit. Just to reiterate for the 1000th time, I hate Imperial’s because they are way to much. Be it and IPA with the hops or a Stout with the malts, it is all most always to much. This is along the same lines although it does have some redeeming characteristics. Unfortunately it is way to high in goodness for me coherently describe. One cool thing is that it is brewed in Utah.
  • – Dont buy

Rogue Brewery – Captain Sig’s Northwestern Ale (American Amber)

  • 6.20% ABV
  • I know it is a gimmick beer but I used to be a big fan of Sig and I am a big fan of Rogue, so what can go wrong? Turns out nothing can go wrong, this is a really good beer that just happens to be a gimmick also. It is supposed to be an American Amber but it tastes more like a pale ale to me, not so much an IPA but totally a pale ale. Not to hoppy with a good malt backend.

Stone Brewing Company – Stone 10.10.10 Vertical Epic (Belgian Strong Pale Ale)

  • 9.50% ABV
  • Holy shit Stone makes good beer. Good good beer. I saw that the Vertical was a Belgian and while that would normally make me wary I was excited to try it. Stone can make even Belgians taste good. Hell they made this one taste awesome. It is a little sweet but it has a strange flowery smell/taste to it which, surprise comes from it being brewed with chamomile flowers. I guess it also has some grapes brewed into it also, strange. Anyway, this is a great beer.
