Ale Asylum Ambergeddon – It’s a hoppy amber beast.
Ballast Point Big Eye – This west coast brew is finally available in my market and I couldn’t be happier. It is a solid west coast style IPA. Crisp, hoppy and refreshing. Citrus, pine and floral notes dominate the nose and palate with just the right amount of bitterness.
Stone Woot Stout – A big stout brewed with rye, wheat malt, pecans and then aged in whiskey barrels. Kinda nutty.
Ale Asylum Satisfaction Jackson – A hopped up slightly malty IIPA. It’ll satisfy ya.
Three Floyds Alpha King – Big, crisp and hoppy this pale ale is not to be missed.
Sierra Nevada Devestateion – Not quite the devastation that Sierra Nevada made it out to be. Big and roasty with hints of coffee. The hops shine through the darkness to lend a solid citrus flavor.
Terrapin White Chocolate Moo-Hoo – A White Milk Chocolate Stout. I really enjoyed this limited brew from Terrapin. I didn’t quite get white chocolate out of it but it was delicious. Loads of dark chocolate and vanilla flavor going on.
Rogue Old Crustacean – One of my favorite barley wines, though I’m not sure I’ve met one that I didn’t like. Bold with spicy hops and loads of malt. Nice and boozy but easily quaffable. I love a good Quaff.
Southern Tier Compass – It is a pale ale brewed with rose hips and a good bit of hops. When poured it smells seriously floral with the scent of roses flowing out of the top of the glass. it has a really nice citrus flavored hop profile going on that nicely compliments the rose.
Heavy Seas Yule Tide – An Imperial Red Ale brewed with ginger and aged in rum barrels. This thing smelled like hot buttered rum. The taste was more of the same with a bit of sweetness finished with a hint of spicy ginger.
Lagunitas Brown Shugga – A delicious treat to bring in the cool winter weather. It had a shit ton of maltyness and a bit of hops to keep that malt in check. It is almost 10% but goes down scary easy.
Chipotle Smoked Imperial Porter – Smokey and a touch of spice/heat.
