Lagunitas Lumpy Gravy

meh

Something didn't go quite right between the middle to end. This is labeled as an "American Strong Ale". The Imperial Red was also an ASA and was so much better. I had a Goose Island Honkers Ale afterwards and found it more enjoyable.

Lagunitas Hairy Eyeball

Ok, Hairy Eyeball? Lumpy Gravy? What is up with the marketing dept. at Lagunitas?

I did not like the Lumpy Gravy, but I did read the reviews before I tried it and wondered if I had quaffed with bias.
So I made sure I sipped first and clicked later.

What did I find?

This is marketed as a strong english ale/ winter ale, and it fits the bill with a 9% abv. and a deep malt backbone. My thoughts? meh, I'm a hophead.
The ratings after drinking? It scores well.


* I stopped at my favorite liquor store and was talking to the head beer guy and he mentioned they do a radio show every Friday. I was at home and sure enough on an AM station I have never heard of, they had a segment where they tried wine and beer. This guy was so nervous, Click here to enlarge
The best part was when they tried Flying Dog's Doggy Style Pale Ale and a caller mentioned how much his wife liked Doggy Style in the can. The on air staff missed it completely. Click here to enlarge (I know they missed it because any other sexual innuendo was chuckled at)

Samuel Adams Imperial Pilsner

Hoppy? Yes, but a little unbalanced on the hop side. A good beer, but a Southern Tier or Hopslam is far superior.

wow

Victory Hop Wallop

The last beer described itself as an intense hop experience. The last beer has never met Hop Wallop. Not since Stone Ruination have I had such a hopsided experience. One reviewer captured the moment nicely,

"unpleasant crushed aspirin vibe"

YET, this beer works! It deserves its rating and there is a very sweet malt part that is easily overlooked as I'm taken back to my youth. There was a low hanging pine tree and I would always pull a few needles and chew them on my walk home. Throw some grapefruit rind in the mix and hop into the sunset.

I'm having issues with the Imperial/Double India Pale Ale (IPA) label. The variety of beer falling into that style is too broad. Case in point:

Dogfish Head Burton Baton


The beer is aged in oak casks and has an definite oak flavor, similar to bourbon. This beer does not taste like an IPA at all, it is closer to the Lagunitas Imperial Red, with an oak presence. It is also very expensive, which is my fault because there was no shelf sticker.

Lagunitas Maximus

A stronger version of their IPA, this is a good beer.
Not as good as the 3F or Bells Double IPAs, but it was 3.99 for a 22oz bomber, so it was a decent buy.

put your first name in the top box, and your last in the second box

then hit visualize.

I have no sound card and I'm sure there is a language barrier

but I used Turkey and Joe and it was worth a chuckle.

Southern Tier IPA

Good IPA, I like the unearthly Imperial IPA, but this is a decent drinker. Hoppy edge.

Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel

This beer has the biggest head by far of any beer I have ever had. It is self supporting and stands above the glass, it slowly breaks down into tufa style shapes and remains after the beer is gone. The "Doubblen IPA" drew me to it, but it is a Tripel style Belgian with the fruity twang and taste. Therefore, it was is not something I will likely buy again, but if you like the style, it garnered some high marks.

Browning's She-Devil IIPA

meh.

It claims to be vintage bottled from last year, so maybe some of the hoppiness has lost its edge. I compared it to this.

No contest, carbonation, body, aroma, etc. The Lagunitas product kicks butt. The benchmark comparison is a handy tool, but I have an 8:00A.M. staff meeting, so I have to balance research and responsibility. Click here to enlarge

I need to find Victory Hop Wallop for dh - he is such a hop freak. I just bought a 12 pack of magic hat for him because it had HIPA in it, which I thought (correctly) that he would like it.
Unfortunately, we always find magic hat to be such a disappointment. If you have ever been to the brewery in VT, it is such great beer - yet when bottled, I have rarely tasted anything worse. #9 is hands down the worst thing I have put in my mouth (this week Click here to enlarge)
He loves saisons as well - I wil have to check that one out.

As I have mentioned before, I live close to the portsmouth brewery, and it is worth the trip to have the Wheat wine http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/portsmo...at-wine/43693/
I am not sure if they bottle it, but they just brewed a batch and it is in the brewery right now. I saw the name and thought that I would not be interested, but I love it.

Thanks for posting,

It is cool to hear about the micro-brews in a particular region.

Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree IPA


I was hesitant to buy this due to the price and high alcohol content (13.6%)
I had heard it was a very hoppy beer.


Dark Copper with a thin head, the first sip brought back memories of a something I could not place for a moment. The malty foundation had the distinct notes of a Sugar Daddy. Click here to enlarge

I was expecting some hop madness and did not find it, I was expecting some alcohol burn, and I did not find that either. What I did find was a interesting beer that is dominated by the caramel malt flavors. Nice beer, but the price
(13.99 for a 4-pack :nadah) is beyond my normal budget.
