I agree with the Pyramid, from my recent tastings that appears to be the case for several of their lineup. My favorite hefeweizen, so far, I believe is actually Weihenstephaner, which had a very agreeable simple taste. Also, which was tasted early in my new found respect for beer so don't hate me if I have no idea. 

 

Also, kwilk, for my first recognizable person to answer me, I cheers you with a new 2x IPA recently brought to my local brew shop! 

 

 

I am still trying to be able to differentiate within beer classings unfortunately. I believe you have a professional job in the biz somewhere (attempting to recall late night booze addled styleforum reads). All I can decipher is a strong hoppy bitterness which lingers on the middle of the tongue, which if I am not mistaken generally hop bitterness is further back? Maybe it simply lacks the bitter aftertaste I generalize with an IPA.

Eh, it took trying probably 250 beers in Chicago of all places to get to this one. And I have seen Drakes ties but never tried them (I've yet to see a compelling argument to deviate from my Hobers). smile.gif

But you live in Chi, you must be swimming in GI BCBS. Its difficult for me to believe you havent seen it till now.

Its okay its a little thick for my liking. I much prefer a stone RIS. But Cherry Rye was very good.

Bcbs coffee is the shit. Cherry rye is a little odd but I liked it

Well Macy's has 2500 different ties and none compare to Hober :)

Censored, dogtown, IPA, IPA maximus, lil sumpin sumpin, lucky 13, undercover, WTF, and their brand new imperial stout. Holy balls.

Def one of my favorite breweries at the moment. I find it odd that the only one of their beers I don't like is the IPA. Seems to pale in comparison to their other offerings.

This summer has mainly been about cans of 20oz Dale's Pale ale, Mama's Little Yellow Pils, and Sculpin. I've also carried over Siera Nevada's Pale Ale cans from last summer as the go-to beach beer. Left that beer behind almost 20yrs ago, but have really been digging it with the brighter/crispier body the cans seem to bring out.

Agreed. Seems a bit lackluster by comparison to everything else.

It's definitely not as "interesting" as the rest of their line, but it's still a great baseline IPA, imo. Really clean flavors, nice finish. It's good for introducing new people to IPA.
post #5470 of 7226
Man, I dunno. Can think of quite a few other IPAs that would fit that bill. Just prefer their other offerings and reach elsewhere when I'm after an IPA.

Beer, beer, beer, beer and beer







And more beer




Anything SF approved?
post #5472 of 7226
I dunno about SF approved, but I love the Weihenstephaner Vitus. Or I did love it until I opened some after a long night of gin and tonics, and I now associate it with how horrible I felt the next day.
post #5473 of 7226
Weihenstephaner, blanche de namur, anchor, victory and left hand are all ksilk approved.
post #5474 of 7226
I've actually looked for the Vitus in a few shops. No chance. Was pleasantly suprised when I finally found it, and at 1.29 € it seems like a good deal given the praise it received from SF (happy thread etc.).

I've been drinking mostly Berliner Weisses this summer. Perfect beer for summer.
