Cheers amigo,

Well, I'm with ya' on that.

And there are plenty of other hops I like only in blends, and preferably not controlling the blend: Motueka; Amarillo; Enigma; Mandarin Bavarina; Huell Melon; and probably a good many others that simply aren't coming to mind right now. Amarillo is the biggest disappointment of the bunch for me, due to how ubiquitous it is. Hell, I'd even put Citra up there because I don't think it does good as a single-hop beer, but I don't mind it in a blend, even if it's the predominant hop in the blend --- I just think it needs a stronger/bitter hop to go with it.

Monkish Brewing Co. H2X BXMB DDH DIPA,8.5% ABV. Hopped with Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and Galaxy with Phantasm. This is described as a mash up of Water Balloon Fight Club and Bomb Atomically, two of my all time OG Monkish DIPAs. This opens with huge pungent aromatics. There's layers of complex flavors, juicy ripe tropicals, sweet orange citrus fruits, dank mixed berries, ripe melon, mango and papaya all jump in the pool with this incredible experiment, and it works, this is one of the more impactful Monkish beers I've had in a while. This is one of ten new releases being dropped this week to celebrate Monkish's 10th anniversary. Brewery only.

Highly Recommended,

Cheers,

Bud

Sounds great! Might have to see if I can swing by sometime in the next day or two.

Considered posting this on the “old beer” thread, as it just passed the five year mark, but that doesn’t feel “old?”

A friend gave me a Uinta Hopscursion Batch 2 Brett IPA (bottle 3/10/17). Was surprised to see that the Brett wasn’t overbearing. If anything, it was just incredibly bitter… which went well with a fatty rillete and eggs I had for dinner.

A gift from my Son-in-law because my time is too valuable to spend it waiting hours in long lines.

With that said I’m really enjoying this. I expected something completely different. Fir needles and orange rind and other citrus aromas. Extremely easy on the palate, nothing overly hoppy, kinda creamy. Perhaps the alc will hit me but otherwise this is pretty seamless. Still not waiting 3-5hrs in line for it.

Very nice, Brian! Once upon a time, PtY -- on tap -- was my all-time favorite TIPA. Don't know if that's still my opinion today because -- like you -- I have zero interest in enduring the necessary waiting in line to find out.

Monkish - “LA Hat” NEIPA
This is so thoroughly fantastic. I love that this tips the scales at a refreshing 6.6% -- and it does that without compromising any flavor. No DDH treatment here, just a straight-up fantastic single hazy that drinks waaaay too easily.

Bud and Brian,

Not sure where you guys are in SoCal exactly, but Whole Foods in SD got their hands on some Heady Topper. Just ask the individual in charge of alcohol sales, they keep it in the back! I’d check the WF by you to see if they have any inventory.

The Treehouse empire continues to grow. Amazing what they've in the last 5 years


Tree House is purchasing Tewksbury Country Club from Marc Ginsburg and family. In getting to know Marc and his team, and in learning the history of the Club, it was clear that they share the same passion for great experiences and the meticulous attention to detail that we do. We will carry on their legacy with the full vigor and enthusiasm of Tree House Brewing Company.

We will evolve the space into an expansive and inviting beer hall and retail store and continue to operate the golf course and various amenities with the full strength of our crew behind it.

Monkish - "LA Hat" DDH NEIPA.

Really loving this relatively-low-octane hazy from Monkish --- 6.6% abv.. Lots of orange; snappy, easy to drink. Perfection.

No photos, but I really enjoyed the Maine Beer Company Wolfe's Neck IPA a couple of weeks ago. Maine Beer is a go-to brewery for me for their extremely well balanced IPAs, and Wolfe's Neck is another major success IMHO.

I've not seen, or heard of, that brew from MBC; is it a new one to their lineup?

It's been around for a while - at least since I visited the brewery in August of 2020. I've noticed a substantial increase in availability across the range here in NYC.

Sad thing is that it's quite a balanced IPA. My local guy gifted me a mixed 4-can lot and this, and the one from Wolves & People, were both quite good. I think I tried this one last b/c of the package.

Sadly, my guy moved on to Boise and my local beer spot in Coos Bay just won't be the same. Take care Ben.

They make good stuff. Usually in the "very good" territory, sometimes creeping up into "excellent," as far as my palate is concerned.

I will be in NH this coming weekend. In the middle of the state, Wolfeboro. Any breweries/beers to look out for in the area? Portland, ME in play, too, I think. Hazy and DIPA, mostly, but open to whatever is good.
Thanks.

Thanks, Tim. It was last weekend - familiar with the names you mention already. But we had good local beers from Lone Wolfe and Stoneface. [cheers.gif]

What did you think of this one? I like most Monkish IPAs but was not a fan - I'm going to try another one today just to confirm but my initial impression was that it wasn't great.

I love it, but my preferences are a bit different than the typical Monkish fan. I like single IPAs, and I like my hazies leaning crisp/hybrid, which I feel Le IPA is. It’s not a normal Monkish, imo, but I like it. :)
