I think there's a Hazy Jane "family" now. OG Hazy Jane is the original strength one. https://www.brewdog.com/uk/og-hazy-jane-4-x-can

Same thing is being done for Elvis Juice.

Hopfully California Uncommon. The can says it's a Spelt NEIPA. It's hazy, but that's where the similarity to what I'd consider a NE IPA ends. No juiciness or any real fruitiness to it. In fact there's not much of a hint of anything really. It doesn't taste bad, but it's wholly unremarkable. I'm a fan of Hopfully and can't say I've ever had one of their beers that I dislike, so they're probably allowed an occasional misstep. Still a disappointment though.

Oooh. When, where, how?

I had the Deep Pool in my advent calendar along with the Passion Pool. Was lovely, but PP was on another plane.

Last weekend...

Tool - Black Malts and Body Salts. Didn’t really like this, not often I don’t like something this much but this was just dank.

Basqueland - Digital Symphony - Basqueland producing some great stuff and this is another good IPA from them. Thought it was very light on fizziness though.

Beer Hut - Glazed and Confused Donut Pastry Stout. Sounds sooooo good but just tastes like a sweet milk stout. Very disappointing.

Lough Gill - Chocolate Ox - Very good.

Other Half Brewing - Triple Cream - A nice creamy IPA.

Odell - Witkist Grapefruit White Ale. Nah.

White Hag - Festa Nuda - Qwality, well worth your money, another great tasting stout and tastes exactly how you would expect an Irish Coffee Stout to taste. Highly recommend.

@Bonniesituation - I think you were asking about Amundsen “In Cafruits” a couple of weeks back.

I see Craft Central are currently stocking it - https://craftcentral.ie/products/amu...39272475721763

Doing a bit of a spring clean. Put these bottles on a shelf a good few years ago to age a bit and promptly forgot about them. Gonna start working through them. Always a fan of the KBS, Chimay and 200 Fathoms especially.

Got a few Veltins in for the night.

However, this is how the evening had started:



Mikkeller Spontanacai Sour Ale Brewed with Acai & Aged in Oak Barrels

I feel like all of my Mikkeller reviews are gushing, but when they're good, they're good.

This is no different. The aroma is so pungent and flavoursome, lovely sharp sour taste and chewy sweet finish. Gorgeous rich purple colour. Wonderful.

It was Mikkeller Beer Geek Vanilla Maple Shake that started me tasting all new beers. It blew my mind the first (and only) time I tasted it.

Had that Sippin into Darknes in what I'm guessing was a newer bottle than you have there, superb beer!

Had a Garage Beer Soup Soup Soup Triple IPA. Lovely beer, I’ve loved the other iterations and this is up there with them.
