Power Plant TIPA

El Segundo Brewing

El Segundo, CA

Pours great with good carbonation. Great mouth feel and flavor. This is an experience in a can.

They say this is a hop cocktail is designed to overwhelm your senses, resulting in aromatics that challenge even the most refined of noses to distinguish a single note. I can truely say that this is a different experince.

Maximus Colossal IPA

Laguitas Brewing

Petaluma, CA

Pours great. Well balaced Simcoe and Cascade hops balanced against tons of rich malted barley—a bed of smooth malted wheat, biscuity Munich malt, and English Crystal.

It is has a heavy dry-hop bill which brings with spice, floral and berry notes … For the hop heads!

Saloon Door Brewing

Pours with good head, great retention and lace.

Has a subtile but present citrus flavor. Perhaps Mosaic Hops.

Their website has no info on their beer.

Three Nations Brewing

Anna, TX

Ok in full disclosure I am not the target audience for this beer.

Having said that if your into flavored beers than this is one for you to try.

It pours kind a flat but does have carbonation.

The smell is right on I can smelll the soozeberries or in this case I can smell dreamsicle so well done there. I just wish the flavor was a spot on as the smell. Don't get me wrong the flavor is ok but after the great smell I was hoping for a full on dreamsicle flavor.

This is a Belgium Wit with Blood Orange and Vanilla and for what it is it is not bad.

If you like flavored beers then here is one to try!

Again great artwork which is what drew me in.

Bushwood Beer

Brewdog USA Brewing

Columbus, OH

The pour is a murky looking golden pour. When I hold it to the light there's a beautiful fountain of rising carbonation in the glass. The carbonation produces a nice white head. The head is fluffy looking, and long lasting. Once it dissipates, there's just a bit of lacing on the glass.
I get a faint hint of cereal on the nose. Not too strong, don't know if it's because it's older?

Cereal is the main flavor here, since it's a malty beer. I also get faint notes of honey that pop into the beer. There's a pretty decent hop bitterness on the back.

This is crisp, fairly clean and light. It is easy to drink but I would not catagorize this as a German Pilsner as it is to hoppy and not clear enough.

Great Art work.
