    Met up with psychopick at BevMo on Friday. Picked up Dogfish 90 Minute IPA. Impressed by the hops and full bodies taste. A very fulfilling brew coming in at 9% alcohol.


    Also picked up Sringboard Ale by New Belgium. Haven't tried it yet to review.

    I was disappointed with the Springboard.

    However, that Dogfish Head 90 minutes IPA is absolutely outstanding. One of the best Double IPAs out there. An excellent balance of malt and hops with a great body to it.

    Just though I'd give you all a heads up on the Sam Adams Summer Ale that was just released. Last year it really was one of my favorite summer brews by far. Picked some up on Friday night and I don't know what the hell they did wrong here..... far too much lemon, no malt, tastes like Widmer !!! Perhaps I got a bad 12 pack or maybe they are trying to cut cost and use less ingredients.... I'd like to hear if anybody else encountered this as well.

    Crap. The thing I hate about that beer is that it tastes different every year. It goes anywhere from damn good to awful

    I guess it is on the awful end of the spectrum this year

    It might just be a slightly skunked pack. I'd buy some from somewhere else and try again.

    I hope that's the case

    I made the mistake of trying it after a Dogfish. The two really clashed.

    I will have another Thursday night & submit my findings.

    Understandable. I find its best not to mix any beers period, but if you are then definitely start with something at the bottom like a pale ale then work your way up to a Double IPA. You really can't get a true taste if your palate is destroyed to begin with.

    Is it common for them to change the recipe each year? I know some breweries do that with their seasonals and it really pisses me off.

    Last night I went with Curieux from Allagash. It's a bourbon barrel aged tripel. Finally I can say that I've had a brew from Allagash that I really enjoyed. Everything I have had from them up to this point was mediocre at best. Really didn't care much for their dubbel, tripel, or FOUR in previous tastings.

    Now, onto the good stuff !

    The reflection of bourbon is very well suited in this perfectly carbonated tripel. Lots of tropical and sweet fruit in both the aroma and mouth. The 11% ABV is quite present and gives a spicy touch to this smooth brew during the finish. This one was definitely a sipper for me, and didn't go bad as it got warmer during the session.

    This bottle ran me just under 20 bucks and was definitely worth it. Very limited so grab one while they are still available !
