Beer #2759 is an indian pale ale brewed by Moon Dog in Abbotsford, Victoria, Australia. Hopefully this is my final beer till the weekend, and it’s a smooth roasty New England Black IPA with a dangerously deceptive 9.5% ABV. Bitter…

Beer #2728 is a rye braggot brewed by Amager Bryghus in Kastrup, Denmark. With a moderately thick mouthfeel, this braggot is sweet, a little bitter, with honey up front, some malt, a little orange peel. The 9% ABV isn’t hidden…

Beer #2436 is an imperial indian pale ale brewed by Hawkers Beer in Victoria, Australia. An imperial IPA that manages to conceal its 9% ABV better than most. It’s a little on the sweet side, almost sticky, with a firm…

Beer #2430 is a double ipa brewed by Knee Deep Brewing in California, America. A cool name, a good IPA. Sorry, DIPA. Though it has a 9% ABV it hides the alcohol well. It’s quite sticky sweet but very hoppy,…
