Visited a bunch of family in DC this weekend. Hit up the Church Key and tried a bunch of beers, something I always enjoy doing. Also got to hang out with my cousin who is pretty into beer too.
This Superhop from Stillwater was just ok. Calling it a "neo tropic IPA" makes me expect certain things; this beer didn't really have them. More on the "dank" side.
Really enjoyed this. Very strong flavors and about what you'd hope for from the description.
Definitely enjoyable, even with the terrible "glassware."
First beer I've had from these guys. Sharp, tart, pretty tasty.
Tonight: some nice Oregon IPAs. Need to go back and have the Animal Cookies again. Drank it too fast.
Although I may have to have one of these first. I love the Half Hitch. Maybe just have both back-to-back.
And received a bit of a shipment:
A sampler from Hood River (how did I not know Logsdon came in little bottles? Did I always just ignore them since I want so much of this beer? I have to admit, I'm a bit disappointed as I expected these to be the 750s).
And "other Oregon," with a couple outsiders thrown in for good measure. One won't last long.
PKLK Space Monk: maybe a bit thin.
Stockholm Brewing IPA: decent, nothing exceptional.
Nordic Brewing Great White Hype: great white head, more like. Makes a big deal of its calypso hops; probably wouldn't have noticed if it hadn't, seems pretty run of the mill.
Update: aftertaste makes me think of French's yellow mustard.
