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.
Boulevard Barrel Aged Quad – Boulevard pulled out all the stops on this beastly barrel aged quad. This robust beer is aged with cherries which makes for a unique delicious Belgian style quad. The nose has waves of bourbon with hints of banana and cherries. The palate has flavors of figs and dark fruit that culminates into a blend of cherries and bourbon. The brew finishes with a distinct vanilla flavor.
Boulevard Harvest Dance – This robust wheat wine had a little age on it. It is a big wheat beer that tastes similar to big barley wines.
Burnt Hickory Cannon Dragger – This beastly yet refined IPA is FUCKING PERFECT.
Cigar City Jai Alai – Finally back in ATL again. This beer was here for a bit a couple years ago then it disappeared. I don’t recall liking it in the past but I sure do love it now. Wonder if they tweaked the recipe. It’s a solid IPA. Drink one.
A Delicious Beer – I can’t remember what this was, just that it was delicious as I enjoyed in the sun on a patio. I think it was Terrapin So Fresh So Green but I don’t really remember. Just look at it thought. Doesn’t it look tasty?
Dogfish Head American Beauty – It’s a big Imperial Pale Ale for the Dead Heads. I love the Dead, this beer I did not love as much as them. Don’t get me wrong it is good stuff but it had a lot to live up too. I like the battle of the malty nuttyness vs. hops that this beer had in my mouth.
New Belgium Accumulation – This winter seasonal hits the olfactory with mild waves of herbs, grass and lemon. It is a light bodied and dry. Herbal flavors start off the drinking experience followed by spice, pine and a light breadyness. Finishes herbal and peppery.
Scheldebrouwerij Hollow Point Quad – Bold stuff and tasty. Oddly it had almost no aroma.
Sixpoint Three Beans – Dark chocolate and roast rule the nose of this beer. Up front you’ll notice big dark chocolate flavors followed by waves of roast and sweet cocoa. It is refreshing in a “cold glass of chocolate milk” kinda way. Perfect for sipping in the cool fall air.
Sweetwater Red Hot Mama – This deep dark red brew smells of pine and sweet malt. This broad makes sweet love to your mouth with flavors of pine, chewy resin, and more hops. She might come off as bitter but she sure does finish just sweet enough to want to see her again. When she’s gone all you have to remember her by is the sweet, piney, biscuit flavor left in your mouth.
Three Floyds Broo Doo – A chewy piney fresh hop treat. Really liked this thing.
Troegs Perpetual Ipa – Was good. Don’t remember much more about it.
