Stone Brewing – Enjoy By 10.31.15 (American IPA)

  • 9.40% ABV
  • I have had a bunch of these and I am really starting to think that they are the same beer each time. They probably are and I am just an idiot for not realizing it but I seriously would have thought there would be variations to them. Either way they are pretty good, nothing I am going to want to have more than one every month or so. I guess the release cycle from Stone is perfect because they only come out like every quarter or so. It is pretty much what you expect from a Stone IPA but? Fresher? I dunno. It is pretty good.

Founders Brewing – Harvest Ale (American IPA)

  • 7.60% ABV
  • I am going to butcher the description of this beer. Mostly because I suck at describing things but what ever. You know how wet hopped beers have that wierdly smooth taste to them. Kind of like you can taste the green of the hops? Well this has it in spades. Told you I would fuck up the description. If you like wet hopped beers then you are going to love this and it is a pretty good beer. But… I dont like it. The bitterness is muted and there isnt really anything else that steps up to take its place. Also the ABV is a little to high to enjoy more than one or two of them, and that is OK it just isnt for me.

Three Notch’d Brewing – The Ghost (American Pale Ale)

  • 5.10% ABV
  • APA’s are pretty much my favorite beer right now and this one is the reason why. You dont get retard levels of ABV but you do get that delicious hops punch in the nuts mouth. Lightly malted, just enough to know they are there but the focus is the hops. Three Notch’d is cranking out really good damn beers with this being a good example if you want to try something of theirs to try out.

Oskar Blues – IPA (American IPA)

  • 6.43% ABV
  • I guess I not really a fan of Oskar Blues, I mean they make pretty good beers but they are always only pretty good. And SURPRISE!!! This is only pretty good. It is kind of like their pale ale, it has a lot of malt all up in it. Kind of like bacon it is good but not really to my taste. Yes I know, I am an asshole because I dont really like bacon and all of my life decisions are all wrong. What ever, this beer is only OK.
