Barleywine is Life shirts on sale, link in profile: I will say this, I can’t stand monkish TIPA releases. The beer is amazing but usually dipshits get incrementally worse the hazier and higher abv that is incurred. That’s why their unfiltered pilsner is the shit and no one cares. This 👻 is going to trigger Dany Prignon so hard RN, but is this Sunny D slurry worth the chondromalacia from standing in line? Frustratingly, absolutely. This reminds me a lot of @theveilbrewing We Ded Mon, a massive slightly wincing fusel beer with whipped tapioca and apricot juice. The carb sucks and it has almost no retention but the taste is so god damn good and it’s liquid vellus fibers and split almond logs. I don’t like Tipas, but this is their same model for dipa just tossed on a bigger frame. It exposes the deficiencies of the execution by stretching the canvas further but thankfully there are few and this could not be further from the typical crystal and tomahawk borderline American barleywine that most tipas inhabit. It’s better than Biggiex3 if that means anything to you. Go buy my shirts so my stepson can pay off his clarinet.

Some @shaunehill meets @anthonyjsorice fusion up in this bitch. @thealeapothecary can swerve all over the place and Paul is the American Dany Prignon in that when his bottles hit, it’s not some stand up double, it’s going way out of the saison park. This is one such bottle, the apple cider profile chokes up and immediately makes contact, the acidity never goes overboard and even at lower temps the gumline is left unmolested. It improves as it warms, this jazz apple and golden delicious aspect masks the abv flawlessly. There’s a musky fume bland dryness to it that hits the cyber nos and you get a Granny Smith meets white grape swallow. With all the weird components it somehow stitched them together into this technicolor pressdown dreamcoat. From the newest round of AA club bottles this is one you should absolutely seek out, it’s triple digit release and core puckering price notwithstanding.
Pre-set whipticks. Gonna run a lil ten min stand up set at Haha Cafe to start dialing in my opening monologue for next month’s ddb comedy show [information redacted until event details posted by the brewery] this @horusagedales is pretty solid, @sandcitybrewery has this controlled wrist on the boil hop, and floppy wristed on the dry hop like some offensive 90s homosexual stereotype. It sticks the landing albeit a touch watery in the body with a tangelo and chard, arugula with mandarin on the swallow. A touch below the best of the best but runs in the same realm as your pick of the best second tier Fremont/Brew Gentleman/Narrow Gauge slurry ipas. Very good albeit not paradigm shifting, what ezra pound would deem reactionary in scope of the haze innovation pending in Torrance and Treehouse. Still quality aserose art, if not sublime.
Kinda mean since they know my pairings usually consist of lean pockets and fire hot Takis.
They meant well but it really underscores my unlikeability as a person.
Seriously though, these labels are somewhere between Lisa Frank binder, Spirograph, and 9th grade stoner black light poster.
Hopefully these complicated ass beers deliver the simple refined acidity I so desire, MILE HIGH EXPECTATIONS
These guys have a 50/50 KD ratio so I’m curious to see how these delicate offerings pan out, will the unlock the RDS AND EXTENDED MAGS AND GO PRESTIGE
