Rinse/Repeat Galaxy by Westbrook Brewing Co.

Brewery: Westbrook Brewing Co.
Style: NE IPA
ABV: 7%

Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes:  @westbrookbrewingco Rinse Repeat Galaxy – a nice juicy Galaxy ipa.

In all seriousness the Galaxy hops really shine in this guy – but who is surprised? Westbrook has done it again with the Rinse/Repeat series and knocked it out of this… Galaxy with the Galaxy hopped NE IPA. It was smooth and easy drinking with a nice juicy citrusness to it.

American Music Take 4 by Brickyard Brewing Co.

Brewery: Brickyard Brewing Co.
Style: NE IPA / Saison Hybrid
ABV: 5.3%
IBUs:

Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes:  Really interesting flavors out of American Music Take 4 from @brickyard_brewing_company – @johnnyneurotic is doing some interesting things in the saison front.

I’m not really sure what John was going for with  American Music Take 4, but goddamnit I like it.  I heard it was brewed as a Saison or for Saison Day – and I definitely got a lot of the herbal and earthy notes out of this – but then it had the haze craze of a New England IPA and some of the citrus to match.

If you haven’t been to Brickyard Brewing and you live near me – what is wrong with you? If you’re not from here – take a trip to Niagara Falls – and head 15 minutes north to Lewiston, NY and grab some beers. You won’t regret it.

Description

NE IPA meets French farmhouse. Heaps of Azacca and Idaho 7. Hazy orange with a dense, clingy head. Juicy fruit and melon meets semi-dry, spicy Saison finish.

Big Hazy by Mikkeller San Diego

Brewery: Mikkeller San Diego
Style: NE IPA
ABV: 10.1%
IBUs: 70

Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes:  Big Hazy by @mikkellersd – what a delicious 10% Beer.

This was a big beer that was dangerously not big tasting.  I LOVE the can art on this.  And if you don’t know what it’s imitating or what the name is in reference to – I don’t think we can be friends anymore! A scary easy to drink 10.1% beer that went down smooth.  I didn’t notice the typical lupulin powder flavor that I get from beers with it – I think they hid it where they hid the extra 4% in this guy.

Death Posture DDH IPA by Foreign Objects

Brewery: Foreign Objects
Style: NE IPA (DDH)
ABV: 8.1%

Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes: Death Posture DDH IPA by @fobeerco – a nice contrast of dark and light with the can and the beer and the beer is tasty as hell too

There isn’t much I can say to top what is above.  I was wondering if this bad boy had Galaxy hops in it – and it sure does.  There was something in it that just told me that.  A tasty double dry hopped ale that will have you craving more.

Description

Assume the Death Posture and glean beyond your subjective experience of reality! Attain the Chaote’s gnosis— the Void-Self Perception! This Foreign Objects New-American Hoppy Ale will inspire your Night of Pan! Galaxy, Motueka, and Calypso hops combine to create aromas and flavors of intense citrus meringue, earthy tropical ambrosia, and a frighteningly sincere understanding that the only way out of subjectivity is through the Void! Drink deeply, as sensory overload and mystical wisdom are sure to follow!

Somethin’ Hazee Unfiltered IPA by Ellicottville Brewing Company

Brewery: Ellicottville Brewing Company
Style: “NE IPA” (it’s really just an IPA)
ABV: 5%
IBUs: 100

Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes: Somethin’ Hazee Unfiltered IPA by @ellicottvillebrewing is an interesting one. It has a ton of lemongrass flavored hops. But only 5% and 100ibus

Yeah, so I got little to no haze when this was poured (I even poured half and then shook/rolled the beer in it to get all the “unfiltered” out of it) – nothing.  Another beer from EBC that’s new and interesting but ultimately a miss.  If this was marketed as a Lemongrass IPA it would have been a home run – but marketing it as “Hazee” and “Unfiltered” when it’s neither of these things AND doesn’t have the typical flavors, ABV, or IBUs as an NE IPA is frustrating. I understand that NE IPAs are all the rage – but put the time and energy into making something that actually qualifies for the style.

Description

Hazy & smooth, this unfiltered IPA is brewed with a sophisticated combination of American hops to deliver big, juicy flavor. Features all the nuances of full hop aroma with floral and tropical notes. Finishes smooth and refreshing

When Hazy Met Sally by Mikkeller SD

Brewery: Mikkeller San Diego
Style: NEIPA
ABV: 10%
IBUs: 80

Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes: One of the most creative names of a beer I’ve seen in a while. When Hazy Met Sally by @mikkellersd – excellent and a surprising 10%.

Well, I did NOT know this was a 10%er when buying OR drinking it. And it didn’t taste that way either.  At a nice 80 IBUs it wasn’t overly bitter by any means and they definitely hid the 10% in the smoothness of this beer.

I was definitely getting a combination of papaya and orange with this – a little orange and the slightest bit of lemon zest too.  The body was pillowy and smooth like you wouldn’t believe. Easily one of the best beers I’ve had in 2018.

Description

“N.E. style TIPA with a cloudy, deep straw appearance. Dired apricot, mandarin orange, and papaya on the nose. It has a very big body with glances of melon including cantaloupe, that lead into a tickle of guava on the end. The finish has a rounding bite from the higher abv…”

Wet Gravity by Foreign Objects

Brewery: Foreign Objects
Style: DDH NEIPA
ABV: 7%
IBUs: 46

Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes: @fobeerco Wet Gravity ale with hops DDH IPA – as with all their other stuff, just delicious.

Another double dry hopped juice bomb from Foreign Objects – I could definitely tell that this had Citra in it – it just had that brightness that I really enjoy.  This was so citrusy – it started to become resinous again (I usually associate resin with Piney IPAs).

Description

The density of our beloved hop essence in this gorgeous silken beer drips down from your head and soaks your feet. We hopped this densely with the eternally saturating Citra and Azacca hops. The aromas of passion fruit, mango, and deep citrus-resin will drag you down by the river’s edge like rocks in your pockets, showing through like the deep brainsqueals and infinite pulse of gravity clinging to your senses and calling you home from across the furthest extremes of creation’s immensity.

363 (Lock IPA Series) by Big Ditch Brewing Co.

Brewery: Big Ditch Brewing Co
Style: NE IPA
ABV: 6.8%
IBUs: 44

Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes: Loving the local brews lately. This 363 (lock series #3) by @bigditchbrewing is a tasty one

Big Ditch has been really stepping their game up lately – and 363 was nothing to laugh at.  The third beer in their Lock IPA series – this was my favorite so far.  It was smooth and delicious without being overly bitter or sweet.

Description

363 is the third beer in our Lock IPA series, whose name represents the number of miles the Erie Canal stretched when it was originally constructed. 363 is brewed with Trois yeast, which imparts tropical, mango and pineapple characteristics to a beer brewed with Azacca, Mosaic, Simcoe and Zeus hops, which add boatloads of dank, citrusy aroma and flavor.

Whipped Vol. 2 by Oliver Brewing & Stillwater Artisanal

Brewery: Oliver Brewing Co & Stillwater Artisanal
Style: Milkshake IPA (listed as a Double IPA)
ABV: 8%

Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes:  Well well well. Enjoying my Whipped by @oliverbrewingco @stillwater_artisanal – but seriously this is super unique and tasty. Really sweet and smooth.

This might be one of the most unique beers I’ve ever tasted.  I wasn’t sure what I was getting into – I’ve only ever had one or two other “milkshake IPAs” so I didn’t know exactly what to expect.  The first thing I noticed was the can told me to shake it. I did, but not vigorously or anything – it’s still a can under pressure.  I popped the big guy and poured.  It. Was. Hazy! Holy crap – and the smell that came off of it at first pour was heavenly.  Lots of sweetness from the fruity hops and the vanilla.

Whipped was one of those “WTF” beers that I didn’t know how I would feel – but first sip I was hooked. This beer is super tasty.  It’s smooth and sweet and not in your face. I’ve had a few other Oliver Brewing Co beers and I was hoping that this would surprise me – boy did it.

Funky Flow by Thin Man Brewery & Mikkeller NYC

Brewery: Thin Man Brewery & Mikkeller NYC
Style: Brett IPA
ABV: 6.3%

Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes: “Funky Flow IPA by @thinmanbrewery – the haze is strong with this one. But the flavor is really tasty too.”

This was one of those difficult beers to pin down.  Now that I read it was basically the Filthy Flow… funked up on purpose – the flavors that I’m getting make more sense.  It had some Belgian flavors but a lot of that “sourness” you get from Brett-added beers.  It was tasty as hell though and enjoyable – even with a little funk.

Description

Funky flow takes our previous collab, Filthy flow over to the wild side. 100% fermented with Brettanomyces, Funky Flow has a nose of tropical fruit, pine and earthy funk. The flavor opens with strawberries & tropical fruits before the brett makes it’s presence known with notes of citrus peel, pear and funk.
