Mission Brewery – Mission IPA (American IPA)

  • 6.80% ABV
  • This is an excellent beer. Stop… It is really good, almost Stone good. For real… If you put this up against a blind taste test wit a Stone IPA I would be hard pressed to sy which one was better. It has a sharp bitter up front taste that mellows out to an almost buttery after-taste. Holy crap this is good. Drink this shit!

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery – 75 Minute IPA (American IPA)

  • 7.50% ABV
  • God damn it! This could have been a perfect beer, it is the combination of 2 beers I really like. The 60 Minute (awesome) and the 90 Minute (awesome)… A recipe for success right? Welp Dogfish decided to add maple syrup and that addition just makes it OK. I had to read the bottle to figure out why it tasted a little off and damn it, there is a good reason. I am really tired of syrup (of any sort) in beers. Thie first couple of times it was interesting but now it is just boring.

Three Floyds Brewing Company – Gumballhead (American Pale Wheat Ale)

  • 4.50% ABV
  • Well I am kind of at a loss. I was really excited to try this because I have heard so many good things about 3 Floyds. Well it is good but it isnt that good. I mean I am totaly enjoying it but I would say that a Little Summin Summin is better. It is very crisp with that Pale Wheat taste to it. I like it but I probably wont be able to get it again.

Breckenridge Brewery – Regal Pilsner (American Double)

  • 7.00% ABV
  • Well at first I was kind of pissed off that M1 bought me yet another Double / Imperial, because on the whole they really are not that good. And uhhhggg… A imperial pilsner? It isnt like pilsner’s are that good to start of with. I should of, like always, shut up and tried it. This is pretty good and exactly what you would expect, a really strong tasting pilsner. That is about it taste wise and that is a good thing. Most pilsners are so weak tasting it is hard to tell that it is even beer. No question here.
