Picking up where I left off.

I need to get my liver back up to fighting strength before all the Portland beer geeks realized I’m weakened and destroy me at the next bottle share. The clock is ticking!

Melvin IPA: First can of Melvin since they started distributing to Oregon! So sticky and dank, I can’t tell if it’s because of how hoppy this beer actually is or if it’s because everything that’s a pale ale or hoppier tastes hoppy as hell right now.

de Garde Biere Noir: Revisiting an old favorite, de Garde’s Biere Noir has taken a funkier turn without picking up additional tartness! Fruit is still in full force here, with tons of jam and blackberries. I know this beer is made with black raspberries, but I thought it tasted more like blackberries, sue me.

Jackie O’s/Side Project/Tired Hands/Sante Adairius We Are You: So….there are four breweries represented here, but I only taste two of them in this beer, so I guess they stood on the sidelines and provided moral support while the other two got to work. Up front this beer is bracingly acidic in vein of Side Project beers, but the finish and funk is all Sante Adairius. Probably my favorite new beer from Sante in quite a while, it reminds me of a more sour version of their Nonna’s Blends, which are my favorite non-fruited beers from them.

Three Headed Hop Monster….

We found a place that still had a keg…..and it led to bad decisions, especially if you drink 3 glasses of it.

Probably a top 3 IPA for me, and it’s 9.5% ABV.

Oh yeah, this hits the spot, but that small bottle makes me feel inadequate…
