image

In this  beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Oddside Ales.  It is their Jesse’s Party IPA.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Michigan base craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery.  Let us get into this IPA.

It has a cloudy golden color with a white constant head. The aroma has a citrus to grapefruit like notes. The taste has a citrus to grapefruit notes with orange and citrus aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.

Closing, this is one of the seasonals that I do hunt down from Oddside Ales.  I am guessing it is a seasonal.  I would love to hear the story behind the beer name.  Is it named after a guy that wanted a IPA to drink at his party?  Or is it name for a guy that parties all the time?  These are great questions and the only way to find out is to ask the brewery.  There is a nice balance from the citrus to grapefruit notes in this beer.  IPA’s are normally heavy with grapefruit notes.  This beer lives up to both of them.  I like it and I will get more. There is a ton going on in this beer.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Oddside Ales. It is their Mayan Mocha Stout.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Michigan base craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery.  Let us get into this stout.

It has a jet black color with brown color that disappears over time. The aroma has a heavy chocolate to coffee notes. The taste has a chocolate to coffee notes with a burn down your throat for the aftertaste. It is by beyond a sipping beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.oddsideales.com):

Inspired by Mexican hot chocolate, this smooth stout will keep you coming back for more! It is carefully blended with Dutch chocolate coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, and habaneros which will leave you with the perfect balance of chocolate and heat. 6%ABV

Closing, I am not a fan of hot peppers being added to beer.  With that said, I picked up this beer by mistake.  It is not a bad thing.  I have give them credit for trying something different.  This is a great beer but not my cup of beer.  I highly recommend this beer if you love hot peppers.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

Closing, the barrel over took the beer.  I was able to taste a little of the IPA.  I like this beer but if you are looking for a little bit more of the IPA, you are not going to find it.  Once you starting using golden to copper beers in barrel.  You will get a mix of good and bad.  Overall, this is a great beer and I loved it.  I cannot see the price that I paid.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Oddside Ales.  It is their El Dankerino West Coast Double IPA.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of this Michigan craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this craft brewery.  Let us get into this Double IPA.

It has a clear copper color with a white constant head on this Double IPA.  The aroma has a slight grapefruit to tropical fruit notes.  The taste has dry bitter front that leads to slight caramel to tropical fruit notes.  The aftertaste has a dry grapefruit hop finish.  It is a sipping beer.

Here is their website and twitter addresses:

Closing, this is a great beer.  I love the play on words for the name of the beer.  There is some aroma notes and tasting notes.  The malty backbone is a perfect match with the hops picked.  The caramel and tropical fruit notes are a nice blend.  This beer might be a sipping beer but I could see some experienced hopheads saying that it is kind of drinkable beer.  I do not think I had one bad beer from this craft brewery.  This brewery makes good beers and this one lives up to that line.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

Closing, for an everyday IPA, this is a pretty good one.  I would not say it is my favorite or one of my favorite IPA’s on the market.  It is still pretty good and I did enjoyed drinking.  I will pick it up now and then.  I love the circus notes this brew kicks off.  There is a nice malty backbone that holds up to the hops in the brew.  Oddsides Ales makes so awesome beers.  I have not had a bad beer from this brewery yet.  I have to say this beer is good but it is the weakest of their line up.  I recommend you trying this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
