Took delivery of some new beers recently. Sorry that the photos are so poor that it's hard to make out what some of them are.
Had been sitting on this one for a couple of years and opened it up a few nights ago. Still fantastic.
These Sticky Hands are of the Tropical Slam variety. It's very nice, although they've just now released the original version again.
A couple of bonuses in the recent order. Can't say either left a huge impression
Fortunately this did.
I love that beer. Also, my favorite glass is a Hennepin one I've had forever and appears in some photos below.
A place near me recently started bottling its beers. This one was kind of disappointing; probably as fresh as any beer I've ever had, but just too heavy on the malt:
I thought I'd like this one a lot more than I did, probably because I was expecting more of an IPA body but had failed to notice that it was simply denominated as a pale. Really nice hop flavor up front, then a bit thin, but still enjoyable.
This one was just weird, which is about what I figured, although I had no real idea of what it'd be like going in. Essentially tastes like Fantome with some coffee on the nose and at the front of the taste. I wouldn't buy it again.
This was really good. Grapefruit taste and somewhat slightly sour. A really nice beer, but I think I've said that about everything these guys do.
Jack's Abby Sour Time (decent enough, a bit sour and fairly bretty)
He'Brew Funky Jewbelation 2014 (not bad for a few sips but cloying; pretty sure this is what gave me a headache for the rest of the evening)
Jack's Abby Hoponius Union (really quite good)
