North Peak Vicious

North Peak Vicious American Wheat IPA

This American Wheat Beer tastes much like an IPA.  The wheatiness is not overly present.  Without the classification on the bottle, I would not have identified this as a wheat beer.  Even though this is a relatively hoppy beer, it is very smooth and light for being almost 7% alcohol.  Which means, make sure to pay attention if you are drinking more than one of these.  They go down quick.  There is a nice back of throat hop bite that lingers a bit at the end. If you enjoy IPAs, this is a great one.

Breckenridge Agave Wheat

Breckenridge Agave Wheat

This is one of my favorite summer beers.  It reminds me of sunshine and sugar in a glass.  The alcohol level is not overpowering, so this is one you can drink all day with family and friends.  There is a recognizable citrusy flavor with barely any kick followed by a sugary finish.  The simple combination of the agave and the wheat make this a refreshing anytime beer for just about any palate.

Three Floyds Gumball Head

Three Floyds Gumball Head

While Three Floyds classifies this beer as an American Wheat, I feel that its hop presence places it firmly in the hoppy category.  While hoppy, this beer is nice and smooth with a lemony flavor that grows more pronounced as the beer warms.  There is a clear lingering hoppy bite at the beginning which mellows out a bit at the end.  The lemon isn’t so overpowering that I would consider this a shandy or that it might turn people off.  Instead it adds to the enjoyment of this beer.  Three Floyds nailed this one.  Another great summer beer to add…

Tips for your First Beer Festival

A Group of Friends at a Beer Fest

A beer festival can be a great place to try new beers.  In a bar or restaurant, it can be difficult to try something new.  If you don’t like it, do you drink it anyway? Ask for a new drink knowing full well you will have to pay for both?  Pass it off on your date?  Whichever choice you make, someone is going to be disappointed.  At a beer festival, you are only served a small portion of each beer and if you don’t like it, you can always pour it out and try something new.

The great thing about…

Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA

Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA

60 minute is a commonly found IPA.  The name refers to the length of time that the hops are boiled, and the number of hop additions that are added during the brewing process.  Any beer that has more than about 40 IBUs will be noticed on your palate.  60 minute begins with a citrusy bitterness on the roof of your mouth that mellows out a bit as the beer gets warmer.  As always, I recommend letting the beer warm up for about 5 – 10 minutes before expecting to get a true taste.  This is a great introduction into hoppy…

Duvel Single (Duvel Green)

Duvel Single Keg Collar

Duvel Single may be found by its prior name Duvel Green.  This beer by any name is unique and yet truly delicious.  Only found on draft, this beer will pour a yellowish color that almost has a hint of green to it.  It is light, sweet, and refreshing with a lingering lemongrass flavor.  A perfect summer beer for an evening on the patio.  This beer has an overall earthy feeling, which is probably why it was originally entitled “green.”  Since this one goes down really easily, make sure to note that it contains almost 7% alcohol.

Left Hand Milk Stout

Left Hand Milk Stout

Milk Stout is an amazing dark beer that anyone can drink.  Picture a cafe latte while you’re drinking this and you won’t be disappointed.  I like to let my beers sit for 5 minutes or so before truly experiencing their real flavor.  The first sip can sometimes be misleading if a beer is super cold. Milk Stout is one of those beers that gets better as it comes to room temperature.  The silky smoothness as you swallow will have you envisioning the ending to a great glass of milk.  I highly recommend this beer to any and all drinkers, even…

Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale

Weyerbacher Pumpkin Ale

I love pumpkin beers. Fall is one of my favorite times to be a beer drinker. And Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin is one of the best. This beer tastes almost like eating a piece of pumpkin pie. I swear if you squirted a bit of whip cream on top of this beer, it would be nirvana. Just as you’d expect in a splendid piece of pumpkin pie, this ale has a cinnamon, pumpkin, and nutmeg flavoring that just warms your soul. If you close your eyes, you can almost taste the crust. This is definitely a smooth beer and one that,…
