Misery Bay IPA

Beer review on Misery Bay IPA from Erie Brewing located in Erie, Pennsylvania. I never heard of them, so I had to look them up. According to their website they started out as a Brew Pub in 1994. By 1999 they became a full-fledged microbrewery. Read More »

Green Flash West Coast IPA

Now that's an IPA! Big sharp hops slice through your taste buds with a pine resin, grapefruit citrus bitterness. But don't fear, there is a sweetness of toasted, caramel, bready malts that cuts down the bitterness perfectly. The finish is what you would expect from such a complex IPA; an oily, floral, hop pungency that leaves your mouth watering for the next sip. And even though its a 7.3% abv there is little to no alcohol esters to be found. Read More »

Jai Alai IPA

This is the flagship beer for Cigar City Brewing Company in Tampa Florida. Jai Alai IPA (pronounced "high-lie") pushes the boundaries of an American IPA with almost enough hops to push it into the Double ( or Imperial) IPA category. However when you try it you'll notice that even though this is a hop monster its also beautifully balanced with a caramel sweetness that makes this one of the best IPA's I've had the opportunity to try. The hop profile is professionally choreographed with flavors of citrus and piney bitterness that has fruity highlights of peaches and apricots. This is proof that the brew geeks over at CCB know how to make some pretty decent suds. If you haven't tried this, or any CCB beer for that matter, don't delay any longer. Get out there and try some of the best craft beer America has to offer. Cheers! Read More »
