Apocalypse Ale Works – RED HOPPOCALYPSE (American Amber)

  • 8.00% ABV
  • Right off the bat there are two things going for this beer. The art on the can is worth buying on its own, also the brewer has a weird apocalypse thing going on. Whats not to love? Not being sarcastic. They are also from Virginia which is pretty cool too. All in all this beer has a lot going for it and there is only one problem, it isnt very good. I dont hate it but for the level of ABV I just wish it tasted better. It has the unfortunate curse of high ABV beers… Sweetness. I dont like it.
  • – Dont buy

Smuttynose Brewing – Bouncy House IPA (American Pale Ale)

  • 4.30% ABV
  • It’s been a while since I have had a Smuttynose and I could totally tell who brewed this at first taste. I dont know if it the yeast they use or what but there is a very distinct taste to Smuttynose beers. The good thing is that I like it and while all of their beers dont taste the same they have a subtle theme that I really dig. This might have a little more malt to it than I normally want but it is working here.
  • + Buy again
