Monkish Brewing Co. Oculars, TIPA, 10.3% ABV. Hopped at 10 lbs per barrel with Galaxy, Citra, Mosaic and Centennial hops. At 10lbs per barrel this is the hoppiest beer Henry has ever brewed at Monkish. It's an amazing assault of aromatics and flavors. Big and creamy with tons of sweet tropical, citrus and berry notes. It somehow stays bitter and dry to the finish which is what they do better than anyone. My mouth is watering thinking of where this will be in 10-14 days out. Mind blowing on day one. This was one of two beers released today via their curbside on-line platform.

Highly Recommended,

Cheers,

Bud

903 Brewers in Sherman, TX.

This is their Hurricane Slushy Smoothie Style Gose Ale. My least favorite out of all their slushies, but still decent.

Really heavy on the passionfruit, as this is TART!

It's actually pretty easy when they are made to drink like a 7.2 % IPA like this one. Green Cheek's TIPA's are really scary, how these guys are doing it blows me away. There's hot boozy messes and then there are gems like these. I'll never hesitate to buy a Green Cheek or Monkish TIPA, so delicious and fun !!

Cheers,

Bud

Currently crushing sours from Sante Adairius (Recency and Primacy Effect) and Rare Barrel (Map of the Sun) that I've been able to have delivered to my home. Quarantine in California hasn't been all bad!

Local beer shop just posted some photos of new beer being stocked and I wanted to check with the SoCal contingent on whether they know if these were released lately by Beachwood:

1. Greenshift Double IPA
2. Citraholic
3. LBC IPA

thanks all!

Check the gram. It appears that Greenshift was released within the last couple of weeks.

Yeah, it's the only way that I can keep track of the heavy hitters, Resident Culture and Heist, in Charlotte.

It's been brutally hot and humid in NYC so I've been enjoying these lower-alcohol IPAs:

Peak Organic Summer Session IPA
Singlecut Hop Sounds

I dont expect them to get much love on this forum, but for anyone else out there looking for something really refreshing in this heat, these have been good to me.

Singlecut's pretty good. Grimm is probably my favorite IPAs in the NYC area.

Fieldwork Brewing. King Citra. DIPA. 8.7% ABV. Hopped entirely with Citra hops. Ya'll know my love for Pulp,or DDH Pulp. Take those two world class IPAs and amp everything up ten fold and you have King Citra. It's a smorgasbord of everything orange, tangerine, mandarine, navel and those little cuties too. The body is full and beautifully balanced. The finish is a long dry kiss of bittersweet citrus. An amazing batch. If your a Pulp fan do what you have to to get a taste of this one. Paging Will.

Highly Recommended,

Cheers,

Bud

Been drinking a lot of the Off Color Brewing beers lately. Had Beer For Tacos and Beer For Golf in the past couple weeks, just tried Beer For Brunch which is probably my favorite of the trio. A berliner weisse with orange and chardonnay grape juice adjuncts. Perfect for sitting on the porch during hot summer days.

Brewery X
Out of Anaheim
Never tried them before this weekend.
Thought both their NEIPA and their Mosaic W. Coast IPA were very good. Will buy again.

I've enjoyed pretty much everything I've had from these guys. Solid offerings across the board.
