Wow.
So.
It's been, like, an entire freakin month, people!
(I can't complain, it's only because I was away on vacation. )

But, now I'm back and ready to get back into the swing of things!
Are you ready?
Cause here we go!

Beer #1:

(Alc. 7.2%)
(Hoof Hearted Brewing - Tickling the Ivories)

Smell: Melon, peach, and grapefruit up front. Then a whiff of pine introduces the bready body. With a pithy note sustained throughout.

Taste: Melon, peach, and some sweet grapefruit. A sustained pithy note, faint pine. All on a bready body.

Overall, quite a juicy brew! Dominated by an even sweetness, yet nicely tempered by pith and pine. The dry undercurrent strengthens towards the back end, but it never comes across as unpleasantly bitter.




And for a proper return of my beer reviews, a pic related to the beer I'm drinking:

It's been over an hour?!?
Looks like I've taken my sweet ass time getting around to this next post!
Shame on me.

But let's not dwell on that.
It's time for...

Beer #2:

(Alc.8%)
(Stillwater - Frond)

Smells: Dank pineapple and a hint of stone fruit wander forward. Citrus notes come up with the thick cracker body. All on top of a creamy sugar base.

Tastes: Smooth stone fruit and soft pepper notes stride forward. Dank pineapple and listless citrus notes ride alongside a biscuit body.

Overall, this was an interesting beer from the first sip. The head was insanely thick, like some kind of dessert foam. This gave a slightly different taste profile than it has after the foam dies down. Either way, it's a tasty (if dark in profile) brew with a pleasantly thick creaminess.



(Taking too long to find a decent pic, skipping this one.)

Ok, I'm still under an hour.
GO GO GO!
(Edit: Didn't make it. I started this post over 20 minutes ago. Oops.)

Beer #3:

(Alc. 9.6%)
(Decadent - Multiflora)

Smellin: Green hops, sweet and bitter, right up front. Soft citrus wafts through. And... maybe... the faintest of banana notes? And a body somewhere between cracker and bread.

Tastin: Green earthy notes bring along quieter citrus notes, both riding a heady bouquet. A distant mistaken banana gives way to a biscuit backbone.

Overallin, I really think this has elements of a bouquet of floral flavors. Not perfumey or anything, but more like honey... like wildflowers and honeysuckle. As for the banana notes, don't expect to drink it and be like, "Hey! Banana!"... it's more like an ambiance than hard lighting. I feel like it's better than I'm explaining though, so... if you see it and think my review made it sound like a "maybe", just get it. Trust me, you'll like it!




Obviously, "Multiflora" isn't a hard one to find a pic for.
(Although, it is a hard one to pick just one!)

Well hello there, recently more active SCmkII!
How's things?

Did you know today is National Beer Lover's Day?
Well, it is!
And I'm about to get into it, so... let's get it on!

Beer #1:

(Alc. 8.2%)
(Flying Fish - Few & Far)

Smell: Faint tangerine outlines softly bitter hops. An easy cracker body holds a note of pine.

Taste: Pine and faint nectarine on a cracker body. Softly bitter hops holds hands with hints of sweet malt. Dry and piney finish.

Overall, the flavors here are unobtrusive. It still has a solid profile, it's just kinda laid back. Tasty and very easy to drink. The strongest note is dry and piney, but it doesn't charge at you. Not bad.



(And sorry, but I have no idea what kind of pic would go with this.)
(As always, please feel free to add your own suggestions!)

Ok, let's get moving on to the next IPA.
I'm reservedly excited for this one.
As a huge fan of the flavor profile it's based on, I'm hoping for an amazing experience.
(Or at least a delectable one.)

So, why am I yammering on instead of trying it?
Good question.
How about I just get on to the drinking part of this post?!?

Beer #2:

(Alc. 7%)
(Evil Twin - Key Lime Pie)

Smells: Maybe key lime pie? Not sure if it's me or the beer, but... I can barely smell this at all.

Tastes: More tart lime, less creamy pie. A cracker body with subtle graham notes. Kind of drinks like a sour.

Overall, this is a tasty brew. I hoped for more of a pie taste, unfortunately it just doesn't get all the way there. It's still yummy, but it should've been called "Key LimePA" instead. Either that, or have added some lactose.





Ok, so, like, I tried.
But, while not bad, this is the best pic I could find:

Alright, I suppose I should bite the bullet and move on to my last beer of the night.
I've been done with the last one for a little bit now, but busying myself with Twitter.

Anyfuckinway... let's get to the beast of the night, shall we?

Beer #3:

(Alc. 11%)
(Demented - Wrath)

Smellin: Fireside chocolate. Appropriately bready body. And the most distant raisin note amidst the sweet malty/espresso background.

Tastin: Smoky chocolate espresso. Biscuit body. Faint, sweet malt undercurrent. A velvet beauty.

Overallin, a beautiful stout that I wish I'd tried one of the other dozens of times I've seen it! S'okay... good shit is good shit and worth waiting for. This stout is smooth, velvety... just right up my alley.




(So weird. I totally expected to be able to grab a pic for this with no problem. But, alas, my luck is lacking.)
(But, I gotta post SOMEthing for the last beer of the night!)
(So...)

Here's a close-enough pic, mateys:

Back again for another night of drinking.
This time I'm taking it kinda easy (I've got shit to do tomorrow).

Beer #1:

(Alc. 6.5%)
(Omnipollo - Oaxaca)

Smell: Mango and sweet citrus served up on a bit of bread. A distant note of pine rounds out the edges.

Taste: Faint mango and sweet citrus served up on a bit of bready cracker. A very distant note of pine rounds out the edges.

Overall, this is a pretty juicy brew. The only bitter notes come in at the backend and are still slight at that. Tastes more like a sparkling juice than a beer. Not entirely, but well enough to notice.




And hey!
A pic to with it!

And next was a bad idea.
I mean, it's a 12oz can and still under 7% alcohol.
Is that even close to a good idea?

It's probably... well...

Beer #2:

(Alc. 6.8%)
(21st Amendment - A Terrible Idea)

Smells: Stone fruit with a touch of pith and pine. A cracker body. Distant whispers of banana and clove.

Tastes: Dank stone fruit with a touch of sweet citrus. Lined with pith and pine. The biscuit body holds hands with (possible) trailing suggestions of banana/clove.

Overall, a bit confusing to nail down the flavor profile, to be honest. And there was a lot of head when I poured it. But my tasting notes are close enough. Maybe.




And a little something I didn't spend too much time in finding:

And for my final act of the night, I'll finally have a brew worthy of the stemmed tulip glass I'm using!

Beer #3:

(Alc. 8.2%)
(Two Roads - Two Juicy)

Smellin: Subtle pineapple and nectarine. Cracker body. Some distant dank hay?

Tastin: Subtle layers of pineapple, nectarine, pear, and clove. The cracker/biscuit body in harmony with understated earthy spices and camouflaged fruity esters.

Overall, this is a really enjoyable brew that's both juicy and earthy. I could easily pound this beer if I... well, wait... I do WANT to, but I also want to savor it for a bit. This beer has every right to be confident in its thick self



How 'bout this?
I got a pic for every review tonight!
Huzzah!
