  • Just got some Hop Bullet Double IPA and Hazy Little Thing IPA from Sierra Nevada. I guess I've been out of the States too long, because both tasted like freshly squeezed hop juice with a spritz of barley water. I expected it from the Hop Bullet, but not a "normal" IPA. Wow!

    Space Dust is one of my “go too” brews.
    It’s fairly easy for me to find when other known beers are not.

    I enjoy a “Space Dust” almost weekly.

    I liked the Hop Bullet as well.
    Good choice.

  • And it's like moonshine, I think it's a little over 8 percent too. Boom

    Bodhisattva is solid too. Mac and Jack's is still my all time favorite.
    And usually I'm not in to flavored beer, but the Black Raven Coconut Porter is outstanding, especially if you throw it in the freezer to get it super cold.

    I'm not sure how much I really liked it, but it's decent. I guess they're both a little hoppy for my tastes after being away from hoppy beer for so long.

  • I plan to open this Bad Boy a little later.
    It’s a never tried for me. Image

    1 pint 6 ozs @ 7.6 ABV
    I’ll get back later with my opinion.


    Edit:
    So now that I’ve had a chance to consume it.

    I’m sad to say, I’m not a fan.

    It’s not terrible, and I wouldn’t turn one down if offered but it’s what I would call “Boozy”.
    Has very strong taste/sensation of alcohol.

    I’ve had beers at 10%ABV that didn’t taste so strong of Alcohol.

    It’s only a 4.5 on my personal 1/10.

    In other news... It's cooling off... it's just about stout season now.



    Is there a bag limit on Stouts?? Where do they herd up? Are they in the rut? I am not getting an out of state permit for them.


    No limit. Poach if you must.

    Oh yeah, and if you didn't know... today is: Stout Day

    Dangit....I got sick and cant get to town to get some. Been down for 2 hard days watching movies.

    Went with the Octoberfest in the watering hole near where I was staying near Detroit. They had a couple that tasted ok. They said online they had cherry wheat, but it was no where to be seen.

    Thanks for the tip on bag limits. :twisted:

    I’d put it right there with their “space dust”.

    Y’all should have no trouble finding this one up there.

    If you like stouts at all try this one by the same brewery. Its very good. I just enjoyed one while enjoying a Seahawks win! Great pairing.

    Image

    Its a mocha stout with mexican chocolate and a tiny hint of peppers. Its not spicy (Ive hsd spicy beer and thats terrible.) Just a little hint of flavor from the peppers.

  • I’m currently Ft. Worth Tx.
    I’ll be here until Wednesday for the EMS conference.
    Image
    This is brewed in Dallas.

    It’s not bad at all, nothing really jumps out at me, good or bad.
    Solid IPA, middle of the road that is my pallet. 5/10

    Yeah I saw that... I gotta talk my wife in to it this year. The stout release day is the following day, which we made it to last Feb. Sampled as many as I could. Good thing my wife drove...

  • This one is from Cajun Country, NOLA specifically.
    Image

    Very drinkable, and if you like IPAs worth a try should you stumble upon any.

    NOLA Brewing Co.

    Edit:
    My all time favorite beer is the “yellow rose” from Lone pint brewery in Magnolia Tx. I mentioned it, I’m sure, someplace up thread.
    Aside from the flavor, and after taste, the “mouth feel” is one of the distinct things I like about “Yellow Rose”.
    It has what feels like very small carbonation bubbles, or possibly a low carbonation feel in your mouth, not “flat” but some may describe it as such, especially if they were used to artificial carbonation in beer.
    This brew from Louisiana is similar in that aspect. The bubbles don’t blow up in your mouth, and that’s something that is a “turn off” for me. I don’t want a mouthful of bubbles.
    On my 10/10, this one is solid 7.5, maybe 8.

  • Made a trip recently to Richmond Va.

    Tried several new beers but this one stood out.
    Very enjoyable.
    Image

    “Head space” by Kindred Spirit Brewing.

    Also heard about one called “falcon smash” that I regret not finding before I left.


    This is one from the same trip/area that I didn’t care for.
    Image

    Too malty and sweet for my pallet.

  • Haven't been drinking much for a long time now but, since they carry my jerky at Southern Star Brewery I have tried a few of their brews and I like Blood Belt which is a pale ale with Blood orange extract. Also like their NEIPA.

    Sam Adams New England IPA is also very tasty.

  • PARISH Brewing out of Broussard Louisiana!!!!!
    Not far from Lafayette.

    This place is turning out some EXCELLENT brews, in fact I’d say that they are “kicking ass”.

    Not sure if I posted about their “Ghost in the Machine” but it’s top notch.

    This brew
    Image

    Is outstanding.

    It’s their Double Dry Hopped version of “Envie”

    Unfiltered and Hazy, citrusy and “in your face” but not hugely bitter.

    I know the likelihood of finding it where you live is slim but if you get the chance to try either brews do not hesitate. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.

  • Sierra Nevada Hazy Little Thing is one smooth and easy drinking beer.

    Many agree......https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/140/317146/

    It's over 100 here in the Tex-ASS and this brew is easy drinking and actually has flavor as opposed to the summer swill offered up by the macro companies or the $h!t "Shandy's".

    Get some.

  • This is probably the best beer I’ve had In a couple of years.

    If you see it, I highly recommend it.

    I only got 1 (4 pack) and when I went back for more it was sold out and my beer lady says it won’t be available again until next year.

    I was very sad over the whole ordeal.

    If my mom came over you would need a lot stronger stuff to drink then that, that and I would recommend loading all your weapons also. We called her the Dragon Lady when I was a kid and she was my Birth Mother.

  • I have cut down on my consumption of liquor, but beer is always good with me!

    I do rather enjoy supporting a local WA brewery.

    I do enjoy a hazy IPA, more smooth than bitter if that makes any sense.

    Most IPA I have had are more so on the bitter side, so it's hard to find a smoother IPA.

    But for the non WA breweries, I like Blue Moon.

    My old man likes Heineken.

    Damn, I want a brew right now!

    It would be real cool to share a beer with you guys here on Seahawks.NET that would be awesome!

    Cheers!

  • West Coast IPAs tend to be more bitter than East Coast style IPAs. Hazy IPAs have a short shelf life, so buy it fresh. Best that way. Fluffy Puffy from YaYa Brewing is an excellent beer.

    Texas Brewed and probably not available to most of you.

    If you like a dry hopped IPA and see it, give it a shot.
