Best beers of July

I almost forgot about this monthly post! I will get around to posting about the Blog’s Birthday Bash next time, but I don’t have the pictures in yet, and this one had to happen anyway!

Sharp Pants – Struise Brouwers/Three Floyds
Shark Pants!A very flavoursome ale, but with a label like this I expected all aromas and flavours to be a bit more in your face. Good stuff nonetheless!

4 stars

Sint Amatus – Struise Brouwers
Same as above. A rather bold take on a classic Belgian Style brown ale. Big flavours and great balance.

4 stars

Libertine Black Ale – BrewDog
Although I don’t really take to black ales, this one had enough hops and packed enough punch to get over that.

4 stars

I Hardcore You – BrewDog/Mikkeller
A twist on BrewDog’s regular Hardcore, but I think I like this one better. It doesn’t have as much ‘potato chips’ flavour in it as some other double IPAs.

4 stars

Chaos Theory – BrewDog
A great dry IPA. A very herbal and spicy version on the American style IPA.

4 stars

Dead Pony Club – BrewDog
Why it’s called California Pale Ale is a mystery, but it has some similarities with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and Punk IPA. I love this style!

5 stars

Dog ADog A – BrewDog
Well, my other favourite style: Stout. This was an absolute stunner almost on the same level as the Tokyo. Packed full of flavour with an incredible sweetness that is very soothing. Never overpowering or anything!

5 stars

Not too many different beers, but a nice overview nonetheless. I got a big parcel with all kinds of BrewDog stuff I had been saving up across the North Sea, which is why I tasted so many of them. The Struise beers was a slight remainder of what I picked up in Brugge, last month. I’ve been getting back to whisky more and more so I might not have too much on the list the coming few months, but I’ll post anyway!

BrewDog for the win!
