The Dude Abides

Beer #3070 is a white stout brewed by Chur in Christchurch, New Zealand. They call this a white Russian imperial white stout. It looks like an IPA but tastes like a stout, smooth and creamy, with mild chocolate, roasty coffee,…

Golden Spiral

Beer #2960 is a double ipa brewed by Garage Project in Wellington, New Zealand. A disappointment from Garage Project but still a pretty good beer. This is an IPA that, with an 8% ABV, isn’t hidden all that well. It’s…

Beer #2951 is an imperial indian pale ale brewed by Against The Grain in Kentucky, America. My first from this brewery and a pretty decent one at that. A clever name for an imperial IPA, although it doesn’t hide the…

Beer #2868 is a double ipa brewed by Garage Project in Wellington, New Zealand. A hoppy double IPA, pretty bitter with caramel, chewy biscuit, and sweet with citrusy orange. The 8% ABV isn’t noticeable in the slightest. The bottle size…

Beer #2715 is an imperial indian pale ale brewed by Melvin Brewing in Alpine, Wyoming, America. I don’t think this one hides the 8% ABV as well as it could. It’s still a solid IPA despite the wineyness, it’s pretty…

War Pigeon

Beer #2690 is a double ipa brewed by Drake’s Brewing Co in California, America. A disappointingly boozy-tasting double IPA at 8% ABV. The mouthfeel is reasonably thick and it’s quite bitter, with pineapple and a malt sweetness but a pervasive…

Imp Pumpkin Pie Porter

Beer #2656 is a pumpkin ale brewed by Bacchus Brewing in Queensland, Australia. A spiced porter that improves as it warms up. Sweet and creamy but roasty and warming, the ginger is obvious but doesn’t dominate thankfully, the pumpkin contributes…
