two brothers heavier handed

It has been a while since Rich and I both had a chance to get together and review some beers. Last night we had the chance to check out five tasty American craft beers that ended around midnight. Some of the beers were repeat, some we didn’t review, as we had a good time shooting the breeze about the direction of the site, where we will head on our next few brewery hops, and what festivals we should try and hit. Good times.

I actually started the evening out about air jordan 4 20 minutes before Rich showed up with Munsterfest by Three Floyds Brewing Company an Oktoberfest. Let me preface this with the fact that I really enjoy FFF beers but this one had a mild metallic flavor that left a bad taste in mouth. The beer was also light in the impression department when it came to Oktoberfest flavor. Sorry to say, but this time FFF you let me down a bit. 5/10

Wipeout IPA by Port Brewing Company was on the docket next. We have had this beer in the past and it is one that I really enjoy and the price is so right ($3.99 this time around for a bomber). I noticed that I originally rated this as an 7, it is really due at least an 8. 7/10

In the middle of the group was Heavier Handed by Two Brothers Brewing Company. Pine, citrus, and floral hop notes are complimented by an earthy, biscuit malt. A really interesting, complex combination that Two Brothers pulls off nicely. 8/10

Alpha Klaus is Christmas seasonal offered by Three Floyds Brewing Company. air jordan 5 This American porter is a super smooth porter that has a great compliment of citrus, orange hops. This is more of what I have come to expect from FFF. Rich liked it even better than I did but I was only one behind. 🙂 8/10

Last beer of night was Heavy Seas Prosit! by Clipper City Brewing Company. A better than average Oktoberfest beer that delivers the full gambit of malty goodness. I thought a little more hops was needed to help balance the large sweetness presence. 7/10

A fun night full of beer reviews and good conversation. Enjoy!
