Review: Pizza Port Kook DIPA

I never met a Pizza Port IPA I didn’t like. Kook DIPA is no exception. It doesn’t quite seem like a double IPA, but it is nice and refreshing. It has a lemon-y taste and color. It is great choice for a hot summer day and cans are perfect for the pool/camping/etc!

Review: Bear Republic Mach 10

This beer is decent, but not a favorite. It is an “old school” style Double IPA and pretty balanced with the malt. If you are tired of the big tropical IPA’s out there now, this is a good change of pace. This beer is a limited release – so if you are interested in trying it, get some soon!

Review: Stone Ruination 2.0

The original Stone Ruination was one of my favorites… I would order it whenever I saw it on draft in restaurants/bars. The new Stone Ruination “2.0” is pretty good, but I still miss the old version. The updated version seems very similar to other double IPA’s out right now and only vaguely reminds me of the original recipe. The new Ruination is more tropical due to the new hop mix and about the same level of alcohol.

Review: Left Coast Brewery Hop Juice

This doozy of a beer is very lovely to drink. I first had it on draft at Whole Foods then bought a bomber at a local market. It is very strong, so I usually switch to something else after just one, but it is definitely a beer I will buy again. I have only had this beer a few times ever, but it has definitely risen in my list of favorites.

Review: Stone Enjoy By 3.14.15

Stone brewery celebrates Pi Day with its new Enjoy By release, by putting a Pi symbol on the neck of the bottle. This batch is really citrus-y, hoppy, and golden in color. This release is definitely nicer and more citrus-y than the last release. Pick one up before they are gone!

Review: Stone Enjoy By 02.14.15

I have enjoyed all of the Enjoy By beers I have tasted, but this one is not my favorite. If you like a balanced double IPA, you will enjoy this one. There have been ones in the past that were more hoppy and lighter that I enjoyed more. Still, definitely worth picking up a bomber if you see it. In Orange County, they used to be more difficult to find, but it seems like they amped up production with the Enjoy By 12.26.14 release and now they are much more available. Enjoy!
