Experience: This was a good night of beer drinking. I was enjoying back to back great beers. Humble Sea never disappoints. This beer was in your face, dry and Dank with a well balance juice profile. Score: 5/5!
BARE Bottle Brewing Co. Amarillo Dust New England IPA
Canned. ABV 6.8%
Appearance: Hazy, Orange Juice, Half a finger of soapy head
Aroma: Oranges, Stone Fruits, Guava, Slight Dank
Palate: Orange Zest
Finish: Juice, Slight Dryness (from Hops)
Experience: I really enjoy BARE Bottle but it’s harder to find in town so when I get a chance to find it I get excited. Last BARE Bottle I got was a disappointed only because something must have happened to the beer I got because it was flat. This time around it was not a disappointed and so happy I was able to pick up a few different beers from them. I really enjoy each can has how the beer was made, very unique. Score: 4.75/5.
Appearance: Hazy, Mango Juice with half a finger of soapy head
Aroma: Zest, Mango, Tangerines, Oranges
Palate: Heavy orange peel, Tropical juices
Finish: Chalky, Zest and Alcohol burn
Experience: This beer was a revisit for me. I have had it in the past and it was a descent beer but I remembered something about it that didn’t overly impress me. Once I had it it was the finish. It left a lingering chalky (like Flintstone vitamins) and a alcohol burn even though it’s a low ABV beer for a New England IPA. It’s full of flavor but the finish is where it takes the excitement away for me. Score: 4/5.
Pizza Port Brewing Co. & El Segundo Brewing Company Rippin’ Bear IPA
Canned. Date canned on 4/29/21. ABV 7.2%
Appearance: Clear, Golden, Finger and a half width of soapy head
Aroma: Citrus, Slight Dank
Palate: Orange Peel, Floral, Pine
Finish: Hoppy, Dry
Experience: These two breweries did it! A good west coast IPA is hard for me to find or at least check off all the boxes for me. The smell, the mouthfeel and the finish was on point. In your face, chewing, hoppy, piney. Yes, yes, yes! Score: 5/5!
Experience: At first, I was a little nervous about trying this one because I haven’t had a lot of good beers from Mother Earth but this on shocked me on how tropical and hoppy this beer was. It was a great balance. Score: 4.25/5.
