Elysian Brewing Company – Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale (American Pale Ale)

  • 5.40% ABV
  • I am not sure if the blood orange is just super subtle or if it is just a gimmick but I cant taste it. I really, really want to because I think it is an awesome idea. I mean, come on! Blood orange in a Pale Ale, what isnt to like? It is still a really good Pale Ale that is magically delicious. Buy it I guess.

Otter Creek Brewing – Fresh Slice IPA (Belgian IPA)

  • 5.50% ABV
  • I have no idea what the hell is wrong with this beer but there is like 6 tons (give or take) worth of, I dont even know what, floating in it. Shit maybe? I am used to bottle conditioned beers but this is way past that. It is more on par with a harbor that had a ship break up at the headwaters. <-See that shit, I was in the Navy, I know Navy shit. I am not kidding, look at that picture. you can see all of the jizz in it. I am pretty sure Jimmy Hoffa is floating in the glass. I dont even care what it tastes like, this is no good.

Widmer Brothers Brewing – Omission IPA (American IPA)

  • 6.70% ABV
  • So I started drinking this and I was curious about the “Omission” part. Was it an existential statement? Maybe they ran out of hops while they were brewing it? I didnt know so I went all internet detective on its ass. I am the god damn Philip Marlowe of the beer world! And so after visiting the Widmer web site I found that the missing component is gluten. While that might be kind of anticlimactic this beer isnt. It is probably the best gluten free beer I have ever had. As an IPA it isnt earth shatteringly good, but it is good. It is crisp and pretty much awesome.
