Lagunitas Sucks Brown Shugga' Substitute

Falling Coconut Porter

Almost as good as Brown Shugga'


Do The Needful American IPA

Brew #3 is in bottles and ready...and American IPA

 


Matt's Mulletude Light

Brothers brew

Mojo IPA

From Boulder Beer located in Colorado, Mojo IPA.  Quite a nice hop aroma, crystal clear, with a mild but clean dry after taste.

Grade: A-



Crooked Tree IPA

Up to bat, Crooked Tree IPA from Dark Horse Brewing Company.  Located in Marshall, Michigan, their assessment is spot on with my taste buds...fruit flavor, nice aroma, with a dry, crisp and clean finish.  Not sure what their "Intense Transfer Methods" are, but I will for sure be trying some of their other brews.

Grade: A-


Mad Hatter IPA

From the bottle, Mad Hatter from New Holland Brewing, located in Holland, Michigan.  Quite hoppy, with an almost red color, though lower on the gravity with an ABV of 5.25%, with a mild bitter aftertaste.

Grade: B-


My First Homebrew

From the Brews Best Russian Stout kit…gravity was a bit low due to
incorrect malt extraction…namely, I didn’t rinse out the LME cans, and
lost, so it is actually a Irish stout now :)


And the label…I call it “Almost Irish Stout”:
