Fiddlehead Brewing Company – Second Fiddle (American Double)

  • 8.10% ABV
  • This is probably the best smelling beer I have had this year. I brings to mind a summer field of flowers that has just been covered with the blood of my enemies. Or at least how I hope that would smell because this beer smells fucking great. Just like I hope the spilled blood of my enemies does… It also tastes pretty damn good too. Nothing out of left field taste wise but it is good. NOTE: As I write my review’s am am drinking the beer at the same time so if I am fixated on something I am gonna talk about it. Holy shit this thing smells great.

Foley Brothers Brewing – Fair Maiden (American Double)

  • 8.20% ABV
  • Meh… I am really trying to like this but all I am coming up with is, it isnt horrible. I guess there should be a question mark after the horrible. I read on the bottle that they used 7 different hops in the brewing of it, which to me means it should be a fucking hop bomb. It isnt, it isnt even close. Maybe they only used one cone of each hop? Or maybe they were all aromatic hops? Fucked if I know, but I dont think it is crazy to expect that an Imperial IPA that proudly claims to use 7 hops to be hoppy. Like I said it isnt bad but it also isnt great.

Baxter Brewing – Ceremony (American IPA)

  • 4.20% ABV
  • Holy balls this is really good. I looked it up because it tastes so good and yup, it has Sorachi Ace hops in it. I swear I haven’t had a beer with Sorachi hops in it that wasn’t awesome. Damn son! I cant really separate any taste of green tea in it like the Stone green tea IPA but I am guessing they are just being a little more subtle about it. It is also a session so I wont get hobo drunk drinking it… I love this beer. Now for the shitty part, I will probably never have another one. Crazy Vermont dude got this for me and I am pretty sure Baxter doesn’t distribute down here.
