Wild Wolf Brewing Company – White Wolf (Belgian IPA)

  • 5.00% ABV
  • This is good and I really dont like Belgian beers, so that is saying alot. Really good. It is crisp without being super bitter. Normally that is a shitty thing in my opinion but it totally works here. The hops and malts are in a pretty awesome balance. It isnt like an American Pale Ale with the bitterness being the focus, but it also isnt lost in the taste. This is really good, a decent balance of hops and malts.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company – Southern Hemisphere Harvest Fresh Hop Ale (American IPA)

  • 6.70% ABV
  • I dont know what to say. This isnt bad… But it isnt really good. It is wet hopped but in my mind it isnt supper awesome. I dont know, it isnt so good that I will punch your Grandmother in mouth because I love it. But, it also isnt so bad that I will burn your house down to prove a point. It is pretty good but not awesome.

Tri-City Brewing Company – Hell’s Half Mile (Munich Helles Lager)

  • 6.00% ABV
  • First off, I dont have a picture of this beer because I had it at a friends house. It is shitty to be a beer nerd out in public. What ever, on to the beer. Meh… It was pretty good, actually it was really good. I just dont like the style. Not at all. If you like malts you will like this beer, it just isnt for me.

Stone Brewing Company – Go To IPA (American IPA)

  • 4.50% ABV
  • I am not sure how this is an IPA but I am not sad about it. This is the best “Let’s sit down and have a beer, or 10” beer ever. It is so damn good that I am having to stop myself from punching my own dick. Damn it, this is good. It is moreĀ bitter than a coal miner who just lost his credit at the company store. But I can drink like six of them and still be coherent. It is the perfect beer.

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery – Capital Trail Pale Ale (American Pale Ale)

  • 5.60% ABV
  • Yay for local beers! Well, kind of local, they are from Richmond. Any way, this is also a really good APA. It hits the high notes that I have come to expect from good ass APA’s… Except one. The ABV is pretty high for an APA. It doesn’t detract from the beer at all but I wont drink a bunch of them on a school night. If that is the worst thing to say about this beer than this is an awesome beer… AND IT IS!

The Alchemist – Heady Topper (American Double)

  • 8.00% ABV
  • Welp this would be the best Imperial IPA I have had in a really long time… Maybe ever? It is missing the hated sweetness that most Imperial IPA’s have, I mean it isn’t even noticeable. I have no idea how they pulled it off and I hope it isn’t a secret because all other brewers could learn something. The weird thing is that the smell isnt super awesome fun time. I dont mean it smells off, it just doest smell as good as it tastes. All right that is a shitty thing to say, I am reaching for a down side and there isnt one. This thing is great.
