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.
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.
Appearance: Hazy, Golden, Finger-width of a tight soapy head
Aroma: Tangerine, Candy
Palate: Tangerine, Orange Zest/Peel
Finish: Dry, Slight Hoppy
Experience: This was such a unique beer. I was excited to see Almanac and Bare Bottle collab on this beer and the can art was fire. My first few sips I was hit was so much tangerine, I almost thought it was a sour. I had to look at the can. Brewed with lime, tamarind, pineapple, coconut, and spices. What a combo and unique profile. Definitely would want to try again not during a beer tasting night to see if my palate would have changed on this beer. Score: 4/5.
