Concur with your assessment Glenn, really great stuff and pretty accessible. I have now had approximately a half dozen of their NE styled IPAs and the consistency is spot on.

Thanks to you Bud, and BeerMenus, I picked up a couple 4 packs of Revision in San Jose last week. Sparkle muffin is really tasty!
Also came home with some New Glory Jump the Shark IPA which I am drinking right now - and it's really tasting good.

Modern Times Beer. Lightning Calculator. DIPA.8.5% ABV. Hopped with Mosaic and Eukanot hops. This is really hitting it's stride right now, I am 100% convinced that a lot of these super hoppy NE styles beers really are better with some time. These were from an online purchase that I laid away as I abstained from hooch for pretty much all of January. The Mosaic and Eukanot really pair well, lots of dank sweet berry notes and a boat load of very ripe tropical fruits with a really nice beam of pithy bitterness running throughout. 5 weeks fresh, I'm a member of team older IPA ! These world class breweries like MT/Monkish etc. do benefit with some time and get so much more complex and satisfying. Try it with a well made DDH or super hopped NEIPA, you'll see.

Cheers,

Bud

I think they’ve bottled a number of imperial stouts for years. Not sure about BA. They host a large stout festival every February - Festival of the Dark Arts.

They definitely make BBA stouts and TBA stouts but this isn't one of them.

This is just great and balanced.

Not as great as 1000 Years of Silence but less than 1/2 the price per btl. More than serviceable with some spice on the back-end.

Monkish Brewing Co. Babbleship DIPA.8.2% ABV. DDH W/Mosaic and Galaxy hops. Another previously can only beer now available for fills. Babbleship is the DDH version of La Schmoove.

This DDH beauty is just saturated with Mosaic and Galaxy goodness. Massive aromatics, initially I pick up super ripe pineapple, sweet tangerine's, and dank earthy berries, just an insanely great smelling beer. Flavors follow the nose, its a smoothy of pineapple, tangerine, peaches, papaya, mango and blueberry all kept in check by a hoppy green earthy bitterness from the massive dry hopping. As Babbleship opens and warms it gains layers of flavorful complexities. A Monkish Classic.

Highly Recommended,

Cheers,

Bud

Hill Farmstead - Abner 8.2 DIPA. Nice combination of Chinook, Columbus, and Citra. Noticeable orange and piney notes come through as expected on the midpalate with these hops. Super soft and medium mouthfeel. Slight sweet finish. Definitely one of the best DIPAs being made today. From growler about a week old.

Suarez Family - Hecto 4.5% Pale Ale. The one word I keep coming back to this beer is crisp. Has the right amount of body, hops, and nose. Hops You'd probably think it would be too thin for 4.5, but it's neither oaty or watery. Nice biscuit note. Hops used are Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo

Trillium - DDH Fort Point - Pale Ale 6.6% Beautiful base of 2-row and wheat, I believe they bittered with Columbus and whirlpool/dry hop with Citra. Love all of these ingredients together. Probably my favorite PA (though on the top-end abv wise). Thanks to my wife for stopping there on the way back from MA.

Its that Citra and Columbus combo ! Great takes on some amazing beers, you have ruined me with the Suarez bottles. Its been a while since I have had Abner but I would agree its one of the best BEERS, not just hoppy beers Ive had.

Cheers,

Bud

It is Bud. I've come to the conclusion I really don't like single-hop IPAs, especially if they are all aromatic hops.

I just went through their ig page and they have pictures up of:
S&S 5, S&S 6, Double Galaxy, Difference & Repetition, George, Amarillo, Double Citra, S&S8, Double Nelson, Citra. I know they may have done Mary and maybe Marie and a few others that were not officially advertised, but were sold at the brewery.

Modern Times Beer. Stencil Crew DIPA.8.5% ABV. Hopped with Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo hops. This is the beer that IMHO officially puts MT in the hierarchy of the NE styled IPA/DIPA. Pours a milky hazy orange with a wispy white cap with strong aromatics of peach, melon, and ripe tangerines. Papaya, oranges, and sweet ripe peaches high-lite the complex juicy flavor profile. This is all pulled together on a creamy medium soft body that finishes long juicy and drying. What makes this beer even more remarkable is the volume that they can brew and keep the quality at world class levels that even the smaller producers have to admire.

Highly Recommended,

Cheers,

Bud

Other Half Brewing. Green Power DIPA. 8% ABV. Hopped with Chinook, Motueka and Mosaic.

Fantastic hop combo, we need more Chinook in NE styled beers ! Pungently dank ripe nose that gives way to layers of over ripe melon, sweet citrus and a sweet earthy green matter note, maybe basil ? This is straight juice. Thank's Greg !

Highly Recommended,

Cheers,

Monkish Brewing Co. Beats Is Infinite. DIPA. 8.3% ABV. Hopped with 100% Galaxy hops. Batch 5 I believe. Picked this up the other night at our mini Berserkers share at Monkish which was a blast. Pours like pineapple juice with a creamy white head. Big aromatics of very ripe tropical fruit with a nice crackery white bread note along with that yeasty bubble gum thing. This is straight Galaxy juice. Super sweet ripe pineapple dominates, there's also hints of papaya, mango and pithy citrus.

Beats finishes long, bitter sweet and bone dry, zero detection of it's 8.3% ABV. One of the best batches of this to date.

Highly Recommended,

I had this on Friday for about the tenth time. It is definitely not as light as the gambrinus as you note. Slightly sour cherry note and baking spice dominate, usually with less carbonation then gambrinus. I do not like to sit on both of these beers.

Not surprised; primarily, because I, too, prefer the Gambrinus to the Kriek. I typically find the kriek to be very medicinal, an aspect I don't particularly enjoy, but it does fade with time. For that reason, I much prefer the Kriek with good age on it. Gambrinus is best young, though.

Good to hear I’m not crazy. Will try to get over to the beer shop again this w/e to pick up more of the Gambrinus and the gueuze. I’ll point out how surprised I was about the Parisian BBA so the guy doesn’t get irritated at me for taking extra bottles.

This week, I had the 1st of many anticipated Trillium Wild Ales along their "Fated Farmer" line. Their goal from the onset was to create a fully integrated brewery and farm.

"Build a place that intuitively celebrates the intersection of New England farming, agriculture, brewing and an integrated community experience. The grist of each of the dynamic Fated Farmer wild ales is set on the structure of Valley Malt and is barrel fermented in 500L puncheons with our Native New England Wild Culture and aged for 5-7 months, before refermenting on freshly harvested fruit."

The first release was a wild ale with local nectarines and then this week they released a WA with local red currants. Both of which were quite enjoyable, though preferred the red currant release. Both are fresh with clean fruit and balanced tartness and not overly acidic. Can stand alone but great with some light snacks.

I am really looking forward to this direction Trillium is taking along side their NEIPA. As it stands their "Foeders are near capacity with an expected half a million beers to be enjoyed in 2 years."

Other Half Brewing Co. Florets. IPA. 6.6 % ABV. Hopped with Mosaic,Simcoe, Hallertau Blanc and Cascade hops. This reminds me of a much lighter version of their fantastic Broccoli DIPA. This pours the color of lemonade and is fragrant with sweet citrus and stone fruits. I love the Hallertau Blanc and Cascade in this recipe, it adds a sweet melon and vineous quality to the traditional Mosaic and Simcoe notes. Super light, incredibly juicy and totally crushable. This would be the perfect summer beer but tastes amazing on a cold late winter night. Thank you Greg.

Highly Recommended,

Cheers,

Bud

Mumford Brewing, Universal Magnetic IPA. 7.25% ABV. Hopped with Galaxy hops and Mosaic Lupulin Powder.

Mumford is another one of those great DTLA breweries that are getting a lot of hype for their take on their NE styled IPAs. This pours murky orange with a very creamy white head that you could spoon out of the glass, great looking beer. Fragrant with ripe tropicals and sweet citrus fruits with a nice hint of crackery bread crust. On the palate this shows concentrated pineapple, peach, and tangerine's. The mouth is creamy and full, it's all balanced with a fantastic pithy grapefruit bite that lingers long after the finish. Wonderfully complex.

Highly Recommended,

Cheers,

Bud

Fremont Brewing. Head Full Of Dynamite, IPA. 6.4 % ABV. Hopped with Chinook,Mosaic, and Ekuanot hops.

Finally seeing more Fremont on shelfs here in So Cal and this one caught my eye, I have heard good things so I was excited to grab a four pack of this. Pours a nice milky yellowish orange color with a nice inch of creamy white head. Fragrant nose of sweet candied oranges and red grapefruits. Flavor profile shows pithy bitter citrus, mostly oranges and red grapefruit with background notes of pineapple. There's an aggressive astringent pithy bitterness that runs throughout this beer that reminds me of some of the old school west coast IPAs, it could be dialed back a bit and very well could lay down with a week or two, these cans are extremely fresh.

Good stuff at a great price.

Cheers,

Bud

Bud, your note may cause me to break my promise not to drink any Fremont hoppy beers, save the fresh hops. I’ve seen that beer around, but have not enjoyed a Fremont non-fresh Hop beers in a long time. Would love to see my neighborhood brewery get their hop game back to where it was in the early days.

FWIW, Fremont Brewing is super popular...in Seattle. Almost every time I walk or ride by, it is overflowing with people. I wish I felt the same about my neighborhood brewery as others, but at least I have Holy Mountain, Structures, Chuckanut, Matchless and Floodland to scratch my WA beer itch, and Heater Allen in Seattle!

For Bud - try the Fremont fresh hops if they make it to CA. Especially Cowiche Canyon.

Scott, I will definitely keep an eye out for more Fremont freshies, it seems they are getting a nice footprint in So Cal.

Treehouse Brewing Co. Green. IPA. 7.5% ABV. Hopped with Galaxy hops. Always a treat to get a can of this, thank you again Greg. The epitome of the style, pineapple, lemon lime, orange sorbet and sweet tangerine's. The mouth is world class, so soft and velvety, the head is so creamy you could spoon it out and eat it.

Highly Recommended,

Cheers,

Bud
