Held 27-June-2010 at the Odd Fellows lodge in the Houston Heights
Goose Island Sofie (Saison/Farmhouse Ale)
Little sour edge. Undergoes short aging in wine casks – this was a 2010 vintage
Russian River Supplication (American Wild Ale)
Brewed with cherries. Like Duchess. Intense. Leather and saddle aromas. Very bitter.
Souther Tier Hop Sun (Wheat)
Little more bitter than Gumballhead. Very floral aroma. A lot like Gumball.
Bells Oberon (American Pale Wheat)
Used to be a homebrew shop in Kalamazoo. Plain Jane wheat.
Smuttynose Shoals (Pale Ale)
Classic English … w/Cascade and Chinook. Big Maris Otter flavor, strong hop bitterness.
Thre Floyds Gumballhead (Wheat)
Three Floyds Alpha King (Pale Ale)
Orange. Crazy hop profiles. I love this brew.
Lost Abbey Devotion (Belgian Pale Ale)
Lost Abbey owned by Port Brewing?
Stone Cali-Belgique (Belgian Style IPA)
Same base wort and tasted alongside Stone IPA
Port Brewing Hop 15 (Double Imperial IPA)
A rounder flavored Hopsicle
Southern Tier Unearthly (Imperial IPA)
Good east coast style – nice balance. Not especially orange. Typical sweet aroma.
Three Floyds Dreadnaught (Imperial IPA – marked as one of my favorites)
Wow. Great hop profile – typical 3 floyds earthy/citrus/bitter mix. Nice malt profile – not too sweet.
Goose Island Matilda (Belgian Strong Pale Ale)
Wish we had this with Supplication
Troeg Troegenator (Double Bock – marked as one of my favorites)
From Harrisburg, PA. Great rich malty profile. Awesome. Nicely done – not too ‘hot’.
Ommegang Abbey Ale (Dubbel)
Jaime loved this one. The brewery has a relationship with Duvel. A little sour.
Goose Island Pere Jacques (Dubbel)
Very dry, malty, not a lot of esters (at least compared to Ommegang). Ton of fruit.
Stone Anniversary 13 (American Strong Ale)
They say it is coming apart. Would be good on cask.
Brooklyn Local 2 (Belgian Strong Dark Ale)
Cidery? Something off.
Bootlegger’s Brewery Black Phoenix (Coffee/Chipotle)
6.7%, 7 bbl brewhouse. Intense coffee flavor, a bit of chipotle
Saint Arnold Divine Reserve #3 (Double IPA)
