It also has American 2-row, wheat, and Munich malts. This beer came to me from Atlanta, Georgia bt a co-worker/friend.

The taste is bitter at first, with little citrus notes. There is a bit of faint mango. The mouthfeel is medium. Southern Isles finish bitter and hoppy, then a bitter mango/grapefruit aftertaste that is too bitter. I didn’t find Georgia Beer Company Southern Isles Tropical IPA to be that great, and I give it a D-. It did not have enough tropical flavor, only light faint tropical flavors. It was like they weren’t there. I would not recommend Georgia Beer Company Southern Isles Tropical IPA. This beer is the first Georgia Beer Company beer I’ve had, and it’s not a good way to start. No, don’t try this! Please be kind, be safe and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
Thanks to my dog Nell for having a litter of wonder cute puppies for me to receive Elysian Brewing Company Contact Haze Hazy IPA, 6% ABV which was part of a mixed twelve-pack in which the new owners of one of Nell’s puppies was given. Mind Haze pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a one-finger white head that slowly fades into thick lacing. The aroma is peachy fruit with a dry hoppy note. The flavor is peach as well, with a fruited hoppy dry flavor too that is lemony on the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Mind Haze finishes with a fruity hoppy dryness and a light hoppy bitter fruity aftertaste. Elysian Brewing company Mind Haze Hazy IPA is a really good tasty refreshing IPA that is well-deserving of an A+. It has a nice balance between the fruity peach flavor and the bitter hoppy flavor. The peach notes had to it an overall refreshing taste. I highly recommend it. It was so good I had three and the beer’s flavor did not become too much for my tastebuds. The flavor is sessionable, but not o much for the ABV. The flavor overall isn’t so bold that it blew my mind. The flavor was just right to be sessionable and easy. That’s what made it excellent. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers! Cheers!

Now for a while, I have been found of lagers, and I think that is because the craft beer scene is flooded with all kinds of IPAs.

But anyhow I find this Creature Comforts Brewing Co. & Threes Brewing Simply Put Rice Lager to be a good beer, getting an A+. It isn’t as dry as some more classic rice lagers. It is refreshingly crisp with good flavors that are well brewed. I highly recommend Creature Comforts Brewing Co. & Threes Brewing Simply Put Rice Lager.

I didn’t find this to be that good, and one-sided. It needs to have more than just the lemon perhaps more hop flavors than lemon or tone down the lemon flavor. I don’t think it’s a good IPA.
