    Appearance was even more cloudy than Hey Zay with a hints of orange and amber hues blended with the pineapple-yellow. The mango aromas and flavors did not disappoint as vanilla, pineapple and guava played supporting roles. Very mild bitterness with IBUs estimated at 30 and the AVB at 5.6%. A beer smoothie!
    From my glass at the moment:

    Manila Mango-Salty Turtle Beer Company

    From about 4 miles away.

    Credit-a surprise gift from the fuse family on our arrival to "the island" late Friday night but not poured until minutes ago; thanks!!
    Style-NEIPA, milkshake style
    Format-pint can (yep, further contributing to the aluminum shortage but the carrier top is apparently biodegradable ans safe for sea turtles
    Stemware-the Stella snifter was clean
    Appearance-as above 14 months ago
    Aromas-did not disappoint
    Mouthfeel-both bitter and juicy
    Tastes-mango as the leader, followed by some pineapple and orange; moderate rind/pith
    Adjuncts-lactose and mango
    IBU-not stated but probably 30 to 40 range
    ABV-up a bit this year at 6%
    Overall impression-a good thirst quencher after a trip home
    Ymm, Beer rating-near the top of the cat 2 stairs; refreshing; new format in cans was a bit surprising to me; happy to have a second can for later this month

    Chicanery is still a good descriptor. Hardywood could even use it, too.

    A Stella/Brewer's Kettle/Wise Man trip is on my radar for next week...

    You're likely to go 3/3 with that trip.

    I’d be willing to set aside a bottle of Raspberry Tart and Belgian Red for you. Not sure how long they will last, or when we’d cross paths.

    How’s that for a solid maybe I have you covered?

    Two from this weekend:

    Berserker
    Ore Dock Brewing Company
    NEIPA
    7.5% ABV
    50 IBU
    "A hopped-up fury of orange haze and lactose run amok on clouds of Kveik."

    Poured on the darker end of the IPA range. Thick head. Grapefruit seemed to be the defining flavor for me. Drinkable and quite nice. Was gifted to me from a friend.

    Genevieve
    Sun King Brewing Company
    6% ABV
    23 IBU
    Amber Ale
    "Gen Con® Beer 2020 — Every summer, thousands of gamers from all over the globe flock toIndianapolis to take part in Gen Con®, a yearly tabletop gaming convention. And every summer, Sun King brews a beer in tribute to the event.

    Due to current events, this year’s event won’t take place in Indianapolis. But that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate thespirit of Gen Con® by brewing a beer.

    Genevieve is a Belgian/Abbey-Style Amber Ale - as voted on by Gen Confans - with malty sweetness and a fruity,sweet, and spicy character"


    Both fruity and sweet as the description indicates. Will likely enjoy several more

    Both sound tasty. Did FFF brew a beer with a similar name to your first one in the last few years?

    Thanks to OPK!!

    And, BTW, the Collaboration Not Litigation ale I mentioned in my PM was a strong Belgian-style ale; not authentic but a wonderful substitute for a real Belgian product. Sadly, it's no longer brewed but was quite well done. I'll try to find my old review, if it still exists, but, that might be crazietalk...

    It appears they have brewed a DIPA named 'Cimmerian Sabertooth Berzerker' for the last several years. Cannot say I have had it before.

    A quick search here and another site informs me I've never had it either.

    If they are still there and if we can arrange, I would be more than happy to take them off your hands.

    Missed a UPS beer delivery today because my teenage son couldn't seperate himself from his video game enough to let me know they were at the door. I was upstairs on a conference call but could've signed for it. Now I must wait another day...

    This generation, whatever it's called, need to get their priorities in order!
