Cheers to Chauncey at AllThingsBeer510 for sending this beer over!

Style: DIPA

Notes: Big, sticky, juicy, and hazy; this Double IPA drinks like a cloud of pineapple that rains its juicy perfection down onto your fortunate taste buds with a satisfying reprieve.

Nerdsense Drinks Reviews – #246 Sierra Nevada Bourbon Barrel-Aged Narwhal With Red & Black Currants

We love us some Narwhal but this sort of left us feeling NAHwhal.

Style: Imperial Stout
Container: 750ml
Notes:We aged this rich, chocolate imperial stout in bourbon barrels with a mix of both red and black currants for a pop of sweet and tart flavor. The deep, roasty notes of the stout blend well with the berries and barrels to create complex flavors of cocoa and coconut with a mellow fruit undertone(9.8%)
Rating: 3.75/5

Nerdsense Drinks Reviews – #242 Zebulon Batch #2 For David Lynch

Zebulon!! The name just rings in my head!

Style: DIPA
Container: 750mL
Glassware: 8oz Flute
Notes: A smokey, black ale aged with whole coffee beans. Our grain bill starts with over 60% smoked malt, flaked barley for mouthfeel and brown and black malts for a complex roast character. The coffee from Mountain Air Roasters compliments the malt flavor but doesn’t overwhelm the beer. (7.2%)
Rating: 4.5/5
