Melon and grape flavours backed by a drying finish. Despite that it’s a soft, easy drinking beer.
Brewery: Oskar Blues Brewing Company in Longmont, Colorado USA Style: Imperial Red IPA ABV: 8.2% IBUs: 60 Rate Beer: 99/100 Pour: ***lost review from 2016*** Honey red colour with a good head on pour It’s weird to find a imperial red IPA with flavours more akin to a West Coast style IPA. Fruit tones like passionfruit […]
New Belgium Brewing – The Hemperor HPA
Brewery: New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins, Colorado Style: IPA ABV: 7% IBUs: 55 RateBeer: 64/100 Pour: Dirty orange colour with slight head So this is made from hemp. While there’s no THC (or any of the good stuff from hemp….you know what I’m talking about) it does have a strong hemp aroma on pour. Otherwise this is just a hoppy […]

It’s very balanced in terms of flavour and mouthfeel. Mostly […]
Brewery: New Belgium Brewing Company in Fort Collins, Colorado, USA Style: IPA ABV: 7% IBUs: 50 Rate Beer: 87/100 Pour: Light golden honey colour with a small head on pour Crisp, light flavoured tropical IPA. Slight lingering bitterness from the Mosaic hops. This is a good beer to be having sitting on the front porch of a plantation style home […]
Brewery: New Belgium Brewing Company from Fort Collins, Colorado, USA Style: IPA ABV: 6% Rate Beer: 87/100 Pour: Light orange colour with minimal head Smooth like a cream ale with a heavy sweet Tangerine flavour. I feel like this more like a ice cream than a beer. And on a hot summer day nothing wrong with some ice cream. Or beer.
Oskar Blues Brewing Co – Passionfruit Pinner
Brewery: Oskar Blues Brewing Company at Longmore, Colorado USA Style: Session IPA ABV: 4.9% Rate Beer: 87/100 Pour: Pale golden yellow with a bubbly head that holds for a little bit. Strong passion fruit on the nose and follows through on the tongue. Interesting to have the slight hop bitterness come through after the event makes for a weird sweet and […]
