New Belgium Brewing – Grätzer (Smoked Beer)

  • 4.50% ABV
  • This is one straight up strange tasting beer. It is also a new style of beer for me so, that is cool. Grätzer is actually the style of beer, from Poland, with its claim to fame being oak smoked wheat. It is very smokey tasting, kind of cigarette-ish, but not in a bad way. There is also a tiny tiny bit of sourness in there as well. I dont know, it is pretty good, but not awsome.

Stone Brewing Company – Collective Distortion IPA (American Double)

  • 9.30% ABV
  • Got to hand it to Stone, they know how to brew a damn good beer. This was a collaboration with a couple of musicians that I dont know and not to be a dick, but dont really care about. This is definitely  a Stone. It is also an Imperial, which I havent really been licking recently but this is missing all of the shitty parts. It has about a billion hops in it and a enjoyable malt taste that isnt sweet at all. Its to bad this is a limited release.

Ca L’Arenys – Guineu Riner (American Pale Ale)

  • 2.80% ABV
  • I haven’t had many Spanish beers so this is cool. It is also kind of odd in so much that it is only 2.80% ABV. I mean come on, that is like Utah legal… Ha! Stupid Utah. I dont know if there any Mormons in Spain but what ever, that is a really low ABV. It also tastes pretty good. It isnt the best APA I have ever had but it has a pretty good amount of hops and it smells pretty good. It is like beer flavored water. Awesome.

Cervecera Mexicana S.A. De C.V. – DOA IPA (American IPA)

  • 6.80% ABV
  • It is a Mexican beer that isn’t a Corona, thats cool. To bad it isn’t really good. It kind of has that extract taste to it. Not metallic and not like soap but somewhere in between. It isnt horrible and I am glad I got to try it but… Meh… I hope it doesn’t give me diarrhea (that was a joke)… not a very good one, kind of like this beer. Ha 2 jokes.

Fish Brewing Company – Beyond The Pale (American Pale Ale)

  • 5.00% ABV
  • This is another good beer from Fish, which is pretty awesome. I hope they are all this good. It isnt as bitter as as I normally like in an APA but it makes up for that by being awesome. I am going to sound like a total hypocrite but the malts in this are fucking delicious. Like really good, which is something I rarely say.
