Mango Cream Pop DIPA from Decadent Ales, brewed and canned by Dorchester Brewing Co. Boston Mass. They nailed the mango cream pop! I smell a little sweet vanilla and citrus. The creamy mango is right up front, sweet tropical fruit flavors abound. The sugar level is high but so is the level of hops so it balances out fine. The mango/cream sickle flavor comes on even stronger as the beer warms. I want to chug it down but find myself taking small sips to savor more flavor, fuk’n outstanding!
Sosus Double IPA from Toppling Goliath Brewing in Decorha Iowa. Fruity aroma with a hint of malt. Tasty tropical fruit flavors, pineapple, citrus, mango and such. The malt is there but just a mild bready note, a little sweet. There is a spicy flavor there as well, almost a peppery bite but not supper strong. Not as thick as it looks, goes down super easy, dangerously easy.
So that’s a vanilla ice cream root beer float with a Bourbon Sidecar? it sounds absolute awesome👍
Snow from Tree House Brewing in Massachusetts. Thanks to a Brother in Massachusetts I have a chance to sample some of the beer from this legendary brewery. I figured Snow was a good one to empty today with all the snow melt around here. The head on this beer replicates that fine wind blown snow look and like the drifts outside it melted quick. Light aroma, really fresh tropical smell, citrusy. Has a real mild, smooth tropical fruit flavor then dives into the citrus bitter and a grassy, peppery bite. For me a nice sipper with all the concentrated hop flavor. It got a little sweeter and richer tasting as it warmed. Just a fantastic beer, a unique drink.
You must find someone to pay you for this…
@jtallen83 Beer and Ale reviews are most appreciated! All the interesting new delicious & tasty sounding beer offerings YUM
Treat American Imperial IPA from Tree House Brewing in Massachusetts. Mild fruity hop aroma, my 7 year old grandson said it smelled like oranges, nailed it his first sniff . So tropical fruit comes to mind when I take a drink, but not the usual, a little more spice, Kiwi . Interesting feel, goes from a creaminess to a fizzy bitter end. That fresh green hop bite lingers for a good while, gotta be a pile of hops in this brew! More grapefruity as it warms, less of the spice. Extremely enjoyable, very drinkable and again, unique! Thank you much Brother!
Every Day, Once A Day, Give Yourself An IPA from Evil Twin Brewing in Connecticut. Catch a whiff of vanilla and fresh hops. Flavor up front really reminds me of another of their beers with a Pina Colada twist. Sweet kind of roasty coconut flavor, a little malt. Then you get that citrusy hop flavor, lime pith bitter near the end but it mellows quickly and leaves that coconut vibe to close. The vanilla and the sweetness come on as it warms. Good stuff, that local beer pusher is doing a great job bringing in the NE quality beer…….
but he still can’t find any Tree House!
Nervous Energy Milk Stout from Tree House Brewing in Massachusetts, thank you Brother! Maple and smoke is what I smelled and it wasn’t real strong on aroma. My wife takes a sip an says " Chocolate, coffee…………Hmmmm………I like that!" with a big grin. I get the taste of a high end latte but a slightly smoky version. I get hints of the maple and cinnamon, all the sweet you want, in a good way. They have plenty of sweet in it but not too much. The creamy maple nugget taste comes on as it warms. A fine tuned stout, absolute pleasure to drink, ambrosia!

I Can Brew For Miles is an Imperial American Porter style beer brewed by Mikerphone Brewing in Elk Grove Village, IL. Chocolate and toffee notes for a nose, taste follows but moves around. Has a smoky bitter I can’t say I have seen before, not heavy on any single flavor but touches of many, toffee, caramel, coffee, fudge, dark chocolate. Starts with a creamy feel then shifts to a lighter, bitterer finish. Had the largest bubbles in the head I have seen on any beer, foamed up big on pouring but quickly dies down. Gets sweeter, thicker, with more toffee notes as it warms. A good fit for the ambrosia category!
Infinite Galaxy, galaxy hopped IPA by Pipeworks Brewing Co in Chicago, big thanks to my Wisconsin Brother for providing this flavor savoring opportunity! Almost a hazy, almost a classic IPA, for sure damn good. Aroma wise I get some of that fresh cut grass, citrus, as well as some basic beer aroma, malt I assume. Taste starts with a mild grapefruit melony flavor but goes into that more bitter orange pith, dank, grassy taste, a bit of classic IPA bitter but a pretty good dose of sweet makes a great balance. Starts to pick up some resinous pine flavor and a touch more sweet as it warms. One of the more abrupt changes in flavor, very distinct changes as it goes through your mouth, almost like having two different beers. Thinner feel, easy to drink, dangerously easy to drink!
Hopsmack DIPA from Toppling Goliath Brewing in Decorha Iowa. Big tropical fruit aroma. Has a mango pineapple flavor up front, starts on the sweeter side. The tropical fruit flavor dissolves into a hoppy bitterness but not as much bite as I was expecting from the label, for me it was a pleasant, smooth transition to the hop finish, very fresh tasting. A damn fine beer, closer to a sipper than a guzzler.
Double Shot Columbia La Piramide stout from Tree House Brewing in Massachusetts, another big thanks to my brother in Massachusetts! I get a coffee and chocolate aroma along with one I can’t really pin down, sweet but spicy. Flavor is fuk’n ambrosia! Chocolate, coffee, maybe cinnamon, a sweetness similar to marshmallow but that may be because I read the label first. The feel is like a fresh homemade marshmallow melting in your mouth. Gets richer tasting as it warms but it’s hard not to just suck it down before it does. It says to enjoy it on a winter day by the fire with someone you love, by myself so I have the loved one part covered and a warm spring day on the deck by the river is working just fine. One of the best beers I have ever drank, fuk’n ambrosia!
