Beer Review #56: Ruckus Hoptimus Prime

Style: American Imperial IPA.

Menu description: Hint of biscuits, citrus, touch of pine.

ABV: 9%

Tasting notes: Sweetish, yet with bitter after tones. It’s an IPA (more accurately a “double IPA,” whatever that is), so the bitterness isn’t unexpected. Not really anything special, but it’s not bad either. Typical, but with a name like that, you’ve gotta try it.

Rating: 3/5

Beer Review #44: Dogfish Head My Antonia

Style: American Imperial Pilsner

Menu description: Grassy hops, earthy hint of citrus & pepper.

ABV: 7.5%

Tasting notes: Definitely more earthy than anything else, but not bad. It’s not great, and not one of Dogfish’s best efforts, but it’s OK.

Fun fact: I reviewed this back in late 2011 or early 2012 and the above is all I wrote. I really should have taken better notes back then because a bunch of beers from my early reviewing years have sparse notes. I guess this fact is actually not that fun.

Rating: 3/5
