Although my drive to work has increased a bit, it gives me more time to listen to podcasts. I started a new podcast called “The Dream,” which I am really enjoying. I recommend listening to it if you get the chance. Anyways, beer time.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “WE DO NOT HAVE A TAPROOM AT THE BREWERY BUT 100% OF OUR DRAUGHT BEER GOES TO BRICK FARM TAVERN WHICH IS ON THE SAME PROPERTY. POURS AND FLIGHTS ARE AVAILABLE WHENEVER THEY ARE OPEN, EVEN WHEN WE ARE CLOSED. WE DO NOT SERVE ANY POURS OR TASTINGS AT THE BREWERY ITSELF. WE DO NOT HAVE TAPS AT THE BREWERY, WE DO NOT FILL GROWLERS, WE DO NOT OPEN UNLESS WE HAVE PRE-FILLED, 32OZ CANS OF OUR LATEST BEER AND HAVE ANNOUNCED IT ON INSTAGRAM BEFOREHAND.”
Random: I am not a big fan of sentences all in caps. Just a personal preference thing.
The beer poured with a one finger, thick, white head. It took forever to dissipate and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was very cloudy and bright orange-yellow in color. Because the beer was so hazy, I couldn’t see any carbonation. The nose was a lot of booze upfront. Given the ABV, I wasn’t shocked. There was some earthy hops as well. The taste was equally boozy, which overwhelmed the more delicate flavors of hay and grass. The body was thick and chewy with moderate carbonation. It had a lengthy and sticky finish with grass and booze. I wanted to like this beer, but it was just a bit too much for me. I wouldn’t rush back to this beer.
