Nerdsense Drinks Reviews – #149 Fieldwork Pulp Free

You guys may remember our review of FieldWork Pulp from a couple months back. It blew our minds. Well, it blew Shaun’s mind. Mike still really like it. This is their West Coast version of it, Pulp Free!

Style: IPA
Container: 16oz Can
Glassware: Nerdsense Snifers Snifters
Notes:High bitterness, excessive dryness, and the same over-the-top dry-hopping of Citra hops deliver the expected Fieldwork flavor profile and explosive aroma in a San Diego package. The abundance of Citra hops create an aggressive aroma that smells like a drive through a citrus orchard in peak of season, with notes of fresh orange, yellow grapefruit, and juicy sweet mango trekking from the first sniff to the last sip.(6.9%)

Nerdsense Drinks Reviews – #148 Treehouse Bright

It’s another Bright day at Nerdsense HQ. We reviewed Treehouse’s Bright with Citra a few weeks back and we finally got to try OG Bright! Watch to find out our thoughts!

Style: DIPA
Container: 16oz Can
Glassware: Nerdsense Snifters
Notes: Bright was created to be a clean and elegant showcase for one of our favorite hops – Mosaic! Bright’s aroma is a cornucopia of citrus dank… The taste follows suit with notes of grapefruit, sweet berries, and clementine with a gentle orange rind finish. She is dry, soft, deceptively juicy and adequately bittered resulting in a very approachable yet pungent Double IPA. (7.8%)

Mike was kind enough to pour these for us so we can go in blind!

Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout

Style: Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with Coffee and Chocolate
Container: 12oz Bottle
Glassware: 4oz snifters
Notes: What we’ve got here is an imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolates, then cave-aged in oak bourbon barrels for an entire year to make sure wonderful bourbon undertones come through in the finish. Makes your taste buds squeal with delight. (11.8%)

Choo Choo…all aboard the hype train! We’ve finally got our hands on some Julius!

Glassware: Treehouse Teku’s
Notes: Bursting with pungent American hops, Julius – our flagship American IPA – is a bright, juicy beer filled with flavors and aromas of mango, peach, passionfruit, and a melange of citrus juice.

We’ve got a doppelganger in our midst!

Nerdsense Drinks Reviews – #141 Wicked Weed Dark Arts (2016) & Opinion

This ones a little long so bear with us.

We really didn’t plan on doing a Wicked Weed opinion-piece video but we had a bottle of the 2016 Dark Arts in the fridge for awhile but kept putting it off due to whatever reason. I was grabbing another beer to review and saw it laying there. I mentioned it to Mike and he just said “We’re doing it” or something along those lines. I hope you like this review with our opinions sprinkled in here and there. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Style: Wild Barrel Aged Imperial Stout
Container: 500ml
Glassware: Teku’s
Notes: The 2016 version has been aging since Oct 2015 in Rum barrels after being brewed with honey, brown sugar and agave (15%)
Rating: 5/5 (“Insanity coming out of this bottle!”)

Happy Star Wars Day!! We’ve got Revolution’s Deth’s Tar and some special guests to celebrate Star Wars Day!

Style: Barrel Aged Imperial Stout
Container: 22oz Bomber
Glassware: Teku’s
Notes: Deth’s Tar is a barrel-aged Russian Imperial Oatmeal Stout. It is brewed with a host of wonderful specialty malts, flaked oats and oat malt to impart a rich, silky mouthfeel and deep, complex malt flavors and aromas reminiscent of dark baker’s chocolate, fresh brewed coffee and caramel candy.
