Beer Review #55: Firestone Double Jack

Style: American Imperial IPA

Menu description: Tangerine & grapefruit lead to an earthy malt finish.

ABV: 9.5%

Tasting notes: This is one of those beers where the description us spot on. I taste everything in the order listed! It’s pretty good. The malt back end adds a nice tartness to the fruits and makes this something that can be enjoyed either by itself or with a meal.

Rating: 4/5

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
