Here are my reviews for this week:
New Belgium Brewing, Ft. Collins, CO
Bitterness/IBU: 21 low-medium
Sips (out of 5): 3
This beer, which is available year round, had a nice hoppy taste that wasn’t overdone. Don’t let the dark color fool you, it was surprisingly light too. Overall a decent beer, that I would drink again.
Lagunitas Brewing Co, Petaluma, CA
Bitterness/IBU: 72.5 high
This is just your run of the mill standard ale. I didn’t feel like there was anything special about this beer. That’s not to say that it was a decent hop flavored beer. But I expected more from it, not quite sure why, maybe because of the label. But give it a try and tell me your thoughts.
Mission Brewery, San Diego, CA
This amber ale had a little bit of a kick to it. Other than that I didn’t like it very much. It just wasn’t that good of a beer. It doesn’t have any tasting notes to speak of, it’s a pretty plain beer, once you get past the little kick.
Pyramid Brewing Co, Seattle, WA
Bitterness/IBU: 11 low
I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this beer. It had a very good fruit flavor to it that wasn’t too over powering or too strong. I liked this beer a lot and would definitely recommend trying it, I know I will again. It is available year round.
