I present, for your edification, my bare bones, only barely edited OBF notes on beer.
Gigantic’s & Juice; nose of mango! Grapefruit is too strong and bitter, flavor centered around the rind of the fruit. Really dislike.
Prodigal Son: Jackson Sundown (pictured)
Sweetness to this saison I was not expecting. Dry finish though: I enjoyed initially but after that it gets dirty. Muddy. Don’t like that.
Natian: Herbal Tenacious
It just tastes like weak tea, the herbal qualities lingering in a hateful way.
Ice Harbor: hefe
Dry Belgian nose,which I like, actually resembles a saison with its dryness, and I like that
Ohio Brewing: O’hoppy IPA
I don’t know that I love this, but after all the other weak sauce, this is a relief. Probably better as a red ale; this is not an IPA, but I’ll take it.
Yakima Craft Brewing: Heather
Why do I get fruit in the nose? Honey providing something? Clean finish hard to notice the heather. Not bad at all.
Surly: Overrated IPA
It’s got the bitter part down, solid not too piney, but there isn’t a middle to speak of.
Wildwood brewing: Organic Ambitious Lager
It’s good. A beer I would have midafternoon on a Saturday when its too hot.
Stone: IPA (pictured, Firewood Walker in the background)
Very bitter, nice , biscuit note through the whole thing two asshole bitches cut in line, fuck them
(Late note: I think I might have enjoyed this beer more if I hadn’t had to stand in line for 10+ minutes and then been cut in front of.)
Elysian: Oddland Sliced Pear Ale
Nose is pleasant, with a solid malt strain enjoyed more than HUB’s pear offering.
Deschutes double impact Belgian ipa
Isssssss….ok. The drier finish of a Belgian is present, the hop nose and bitterness is there, but after waiting 15+ minutes, I didn’t care.
Boundary Bay: Bravo pale ale
Not much nose but it’s ok. Wants food, bitter finish, but drops off nicely.
I’ll wrap this all up on Friday.
