Debit and Credit System

I went to the gym for half an hour, so I debit the liver account.

Time to credit that account now that I have positive balance.

Three Floyds Dreadnaught: This was once one of the best IPAs that you could find anywhere, but that was 5 years ago. We’ve come a long way.

Case in point: Treehouse. I believe that Treehouse and Hill Farmstead make the best hoppy beers on the East Coast, with Trillium trailing close behind. Also, we preferred regular Julius to King Julius. Regular had a slightly bitter finish that balanced out the orange notes really well, while King Julius lacked that bitter component.

Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Proprietors: Soooooo, I had to take 14 units of insulin after this beer, it’s really that sweet. Let’s hope it calms the fuck down after a year or two.

This one was not preferred by the group, really heavy sulfur on the nose, and kind of thin on mouthfeel.

Another Birthday

I was really feeling it after that last tasting, so I was very restrained for this tasting. What was cool was that the Common’s Brewery hosted this private event for us. It was really nice of them to do something like that for the geeks.

I tried maybe 1/6 of the beer here. Ticker said yes, liver said GTFO.

Hill Farmstead Clara: I think this was my first wheat grisette, and it was super low alcohol, which was exactly what my liver wanted. Lightly tart, super carbonated, and slightly bitter on the finish. B+

Hill Farmstead Arthur: God I love this beer. Definitely a top 5 saison for me. A

IMAG2074

Hangar 24 Chandelle: Fantastic apricot flavor up front really elevates this beer, but the horrific, terrifying, rotten aftertaste brings this beer crashing back down and then some. C-

IMAG2075

Six Point Diesel: This is a stout that dreamed about being an IPA its whole life. That pretty much sums it up. B

IMAG2077

Alpine Duet: I really like this beer and it’s unfortunate that I don’t get to have Alpine beers more often. Delicious, but not quite as good as Nelson. A

IMAG2079

Westbrook Apple Brandy something something beer: I’ve never had a beer with such a pronounce apple brandy flavor to it. It was really quite nice, but overly sweet as a result. A-

IMAG2080

Cigar City Brewing Bourbon Barrel Big Sound: Good beer, but my liver simply wasn’t having it. Therefore, no grade here.

IMAG2081

Surly Abrasive: Very good and hoppy beer. Unfortunately I was expecting something more like Surly Wet. Definitely worth seeking this beer out for Sunday football. B+

IMAG2082

Three Floyds Dreadnaught: I really like this beer, but between my liver and my palette fatigue, I wasn’t that impressed this time around. B
