Seeking Alpha by Captain Lawrence
Tasting: November 6, 2014
Style: Triple IPA
Beer #: 642

I can highly recommend Captain Lawrence’s Captain’s Reserve IPA. It’s a terrific beer and a sixteen ounce bottle only runs $3.99 which is a relative bargain these days. I’m intrigued by this one basically because I’m easily intrigued by triple IPAs. Why? Well, I find that many of these amped up IPAs resemble barley wine more that they resemble IPA. I love a big syrupy sweet and boozy ale and I’m hoping that Seeking Alpha hits the mark like other triple IPAs.

Definitely in my wheelhouse. Sticky, boozy with massive hop resin. I’ll peg Seeking Alpha at 88 points.

Easy Jack by Firestone Walker
Tasting: November 7, 2014
Style: Session Ale
Beer #: 643

This beer came to me by way of an extra in a trade a couple of weeks ago. First few sips are nice like an Arizona Green Tea with Honey. It spirals downward soon thereafter into a watery bitterness. It might be better on a hot summer day. For now, I’ll give it 86 points.

Duck Rabbit Milk Stout by Duck Rabbit
Tasting:
Style: Milk Stout
Beer #: 644

Again, another extra in a trade that featured my acquisition of a four pack of NoDa’s outstanding Hop, Drop and Roll. Very fizzy pour leaves a very robust head. Flavors are roasted and woodsy. A little too fizzy for my liking. Milk stout should have some sweetness and creamy smoothness – this one doesn’t deliver any of that. 83 points.

Oktoberfest by Sun King
Tasting: October 30, 2014
Style: Marzen
Beer #: 645

Off flavors here. No malt sweetness with an odd un-hop like bitterness. A little fizzy and weak. Sorry, I have way too much beer on my waiting list to go any further. 70 points.
