They're entirely too bitter and taste awful. Haven't found a single IPA that I enjoyed after the first sip.
>>
>>9487382
You might enjoy an IPA that is geared more towards the citrus fruit spectrum. Those tend to blend the tartness of citrus in a way that minimizes the bitterness of the hops.I say this as someone who wasn't a big fan, but is growing increasingly fond of IPAs since moving to CA.

I will always try local brews. Some good some not so good. I'm going to a blocktoberfest tomorrow to try out a new brewery in town. My favorite local right now is True Vine brewery.. I support the brand because they are just really great people...and they make really good beer.

True Vine Promised Land is my favorite by them atm. Right now I'm trying Mermaids and Unicorns, a pale ale, that the guys brewed in honor of their bby girls. It's decent.

Deep Ellum Easy Peasy is also good...Dallas brewery.

However....My favorite IPA at the moment is Dankasaurus. Smells like weed when you open it but it's smooth as silk. Excellent brew!!

Looks good. I'm the same way. Here's an Alt I bottled 1 month ago. Nice and malty with a slight hop kick at the end. I just bottled a New Glarus Spotted Cow clone using a Wyeast Kolsch yeast a couple days ago. Tasted great but it's not ready yet.

I drink only craft brews when I'm out and about, but I only drink homebrew at home unless it's some kind of gathering with a lot of people.

I like founders but that's one of the worst I've ever had. my friend likes it

nope.

comes from the olden days when you would pay more tax based on how strong the beer was.

eg 70/- tax on a barrel of 3.5 - 4.0%abv
80/- tax on barrel of 4 - 5.5%abv

it was still a fairly common way to differentiate between scottish ales up until recently.

Yes. It's decent and drinkable, but I don't think there's anything exceptional about it.

I prefer darker beers, and it seems like this tasting room carries a lot of dark, small-batch beers in order to gauge consumer reaction. They've made some really fantastic barrel-aged brews that have a very limited market supply. For example, they recently had a dark chocolate and coconut, barrel-aged Narwhal. It was like drinking a milder Almond Joy that was coated in dark chocolate.

>(hard) cider

As opposed to what, gooey cider? Fluffy cider?
>>
>>9491140
in america english, cider generally refers to mulled cider. Apple juiced heated with spices and shit. Whereas 'hard cider' is the alcoholic version of apple juice
>>
>>9491211
Incorrect. In America regular cider refers to, essentially, unfiltered apple juice pressed from fresh apples and is very different from regular apple juice.

Mulled cider is made by mulling the cider (not apple juice) with spices.

Hard cider is alcoholic
>>
>>9491232
I'd say that generally people refer to mulled cider as simply 'cider'
>>
>>9491211
Does whiskey now refer to wheat juice?
Should I start referring to mashed potatoes as vodka?
>>
>>9491293
guess what? Words mean different things in different dialects sometimes
>>
>>9491410
You've already got the word juice
Cider is expressly a fermented alcoholic product

Why would you use a booze name to mean something that isn't booze?
What retard thought this was a good idea and why would you willingly go along with this retardation?
>>
>>9491438
I don't know. I didn't make the rules
Also note, Americans rarely drink hard cider (though it has gotten much more popular recently), while mulled cider is a common childhood drink in the autumn

Little Sumpin' Extra is definitely good. I'm going to get some now, and I didn't even feel like getting out today. Thanks, ass.

Today's Torpedo Room selection.
>>
>>9487389
Not that guy, but thank you for reminding me that I have had an IPA that I've actually liked. It was grapefruit (which I hate in general) and of course an IPA (obviously I'm not very fond), so I immediately thought "yep, this is going to be terrible". It was the only beer in the house at the time, and being a borderline alcoholic, obviously I had no choice but to drink it anyways. It blended together so nicely, I think it gave me a newfound respect for grapefruit.
>>
>>9491821
I don't like fresh grapefruit much, but it works really well in IPA

Fat Tire, two variations of Switchback (Extra Pale Ale and just plain old Switchback), and Magic Hat's Mother Lager, and two ciders.

>>9492748
Yeah, I probably would have expected you to at least favor something out of that even if you didn't really like them. Was there anything about any of them you liked? Or what specifically did you like the least about them?

If you want less pronounced flavors I'd look for something labeled pilsner. If you want more maltiness I'd try a brown ale.

Well, I disliked Mother Lager because it smelled and tasted a bit like skunk water. Switchback was OK I guess, but the taste of hops was a bit strange to me. The Extra Pale variant however was far far too bitter. Fat Tire I can't quite remember. The two ciders were pretty good, but the aftertaste was terrible.

Well founders is decently readily available and I really liked it when I had it. My problem with porters and stouts and beers like that is that I live in Florida and it always just seems more enjoyable and appropriate to drink something a bit more refreshing.

Honestly never had it, will grab some next time I'm at the bottle-o.
I like the Mercy Draft Cider, but my local liqure land doesn't stock it.

>>9502414
Cooper's Sparkling is probably a good choice for a beer that gets pretty broad distro in bottles at least. It's an Australian owned company too, not some Japanese car company owned brewery trying to masquerade as some dinky-di Victorian brand with some manufactured bullshit backstory like every other pissweak bullshit mock-craft beer shat out out by Woolworths, Coles-Wesfarmers, SAB Miller...

I recently tried Rochefort 8 and 6 after having first tasted 10 a while back. I don't see what the big deal with 8 is, it just felt like a watered down 10 on all fronts. The 6 had more of a unique identity with a lighter, refreshing taste and ridiculous carbonation, so I might consider buying that again sometime, but why go for 8 if you could buy 10?

When I was in Philadelphia for a week this is all I drank. Mid-summer 90+ F every fucking day, literally the perfect lager. It was like sipping on god's sweet nectar.
>>
>>9504640
Got Long Trail Ale, Long Trail Limbo IPA, Sierra Nevada Tropical Torpedo, Samuel Adams Oktoberfest, Unearthed, and Von Trapp Pilsner.

Unearthed tastes vile. I was waterboarded with the taste of a thousand farts condensed into one sip. Smells precisely how it tastes.

Von Trapp Pilsner has a slight bad taste to it, but it is totally mild compared to the shitwater of Unearthed. It has a similar smell to Unearthed, but it isn't noticeable unless I look for it.

Octoberfest smells okay, and the taste is fine. Has a shitty bitter aftertaste that I can't get past though. No fun.

Long Trail Ale has a smooth taste, with a less noticeable bitterness than the Octoberfest. Might be my current favourite as far as beer goes.

Limbo IPA is just gross. The bitterness hit immediately and the taste added to the bitterness.

Tropical Torpedo is worse than Limbo. It doesn't taste tropical at all and I feel lied to. Betrayal, a bitter taste in my mouth, and now the cap is missing.

Thoughts? I might just fucking quit trying to enjoy beer and stick to whiskey and rum.

As someone raised in the Mid-Atlantic this is a staple beer that everyone drinks, maybe a tier or two above the big lagers.

In the mid to late 2000s I used to see people on the west coast trading for it on beer forums like it was the east coast Russian River or something. It was quite hilarious. Not making fun of anyone, but it's pretty much a go to beer for teenagers and 20 year olds over here, so it was weird to see people trying to get it like that. Always made me wonder what the west coast version of this would be for us over here.

Caledonian is unequivocally the most rancid swill I've ever even imagined tasting. It's as if someone dropped a small handful of dusty, expired hops in a flat bottle of Bud Lite and shotgunned that mess into a keg, which was left open along the side of the A7 for several weeks.

I always return to St. Bernardus Abt 12 just to remind me how shitty most beer is.

This is my gold standard. Best BEER i've ever had.

It's a staple of my fridge.

Other cheep beers i keep in my fridge (for visiting guests to my home) is Rolling Rock, Yuengling and Killians Irish Red.

I used to keep JW Dundee Honey Brown and Newcastle Brown Ale and/or Hoegaarden, but these have lost quality when they were bought out by the MACROS. Taste cheap and shitty now.

>being this oblivious to xocovesa hype

This beer is god-tier in every respect. If you don't like dark beers, stouts, spiced beers, or chile'd beers then this beer is not for you and you can fuck off with your judgement.

If you're the kind of person that calls craft beer a "meme", then I implore you to take a look at any great invention and take note of how it evolved throughout history. Go look at what planes used to look like before we settled on the 747, or what doctors would prescribe their patients for the common cold before we settled on contemporary remedies (hint: it was meth and cocaine).

People should be so glad that Americans are creating every possible combination of beer, for better or worse, because that's how you discover something truly monumental. The first person to place beer in a bourbon barrel must have been laughed at and called an epic memer, but little did they know that the dude was onto something huge.
