    What can I say about Sip. Its like the impossible question that some asshole eventually asks you..if your cooler was drowing in the ocean...which beer would you save? The Heady or the Sip? The real answer is I'm fine as long as Focal Banger wasn't in the cooler but to answer the question...I think I'm a convert to saving the Sip!!—by Paul the Ripper

  • 90 Minutes

    This used to be the quintessential balanced IPA but now it just make me think of Kanye West. I think most of us would admit there was a time that we like Kanye and thought he had a bunch of potential to make strong social statements but now he is just a joke. I think it all started when he interrupted the girl we all hate to admit that we like (if not personally we like her as an artist for our kids to listen too..you know who I'm talking about). Ironically, I think that is about the time other breweries started becoming more creative in style and process to produce better beers. As it related to 90 min...I'm not saying its a a gold digger but it taste more like a broke______! (IPA...is what I put in the space but you racist SOB probably put something else). —by Paul the Ripper

    Samiclaus- who would have thought that 11.2 onces of 10 month aged malt liquor coming in at a 14% abv wouldn't taste so good. I have some 3 year old Colt 45 aged on the top of my roof that I think would be better than this. Enough said...I'm not wasting any more time on this dog of a beer.—by Paul the Ripper

    Only giving it a 9 because maybe my HT was a bit old. I have had this bet really fresh but clearly when I had this one it was at least 3 weeks old or something like that. Phil- I hold you and your "team" to a higher standard and you fell a bit short. I'm going to force down 4-5 more just to confirm the freshness. —by Paul the Ripper

  • Weistephaner Hefe

    Ok- I get it...some of you will be insulted at the score given here to this world class Hefe by one of the worlds oldest breweries. Really it just isn't fair to put this beer in a case with all these well crafted examples of complex mastery of magic recipes with mystical combinations of brewing delictible nectars with bold hop and malt flavored beers. Such IPA's and Stouts and everything in between really overshadow any real chance for this beer to stand out. This beer is more fit for a beer rehab program that helps introduce good beer to people that need to weened off mass produced beer. A step wise approach...Bud Light to Busweiser to Miller Lite to Weistephaner Hefe to Sam Adams...you get the drift!—by Paul the Ripper

    Nope. Didn't make it through this beer due to the hideously bad after taste. I had to eat canned dogfood to get rid of the taste in my mouth. —by Paul the Ripper

  • Xocoveza

    I'm so conflicted on this beer and 1 of these was not enough for me to work it all out. I think this is a well crafted beer but it really had so much going on inside that it felt a bit like a gimmick. Eitherway...I don't really see me ever having it again. P.S.- Is this lady the gringo's version of Aunt Jemima?—by Paul the Ripper

    This was a nice little treat. Not something I would ever really buy or oder but it was easy drinking. Reminded me of "The Dutchess" a bit with out the sour. I would have rated it higher but I had to take a couple points off for the fact that it made me get my period while drinking it!—by Paul the Ripper

  • Enjoy By 2.15 Coffee Chocolate

    If I had this beer blinded, I would have said it was a solid IPA. This is especially interesting because Enjoy By is in my top 5 of IPAs. Period. If this was just about the IPA the score would be higher....like a 8 or 8.5 but since I was supposed to taste some other flavors that just forgot to show up...I have to have it take down a couple points. —by Paul the Ripper

  • Bell's Hopslam

    Let me start by saying... this is going to hurt me more than its going to hirt you! I think I now know the magnitude of that statement. Hopslam used to be the basis upon which I judged other beers but much like my senior picture below... it seemed to work for me at the time. I used to describe Hopslam as lite and sweet but now that I have traveled far down the road of my beer journey I see the error of my ways ( who doesnt love a blindish-red mustache?). Given all the complexities of other beers, Hopslam just landed as a malty fart on my tongue. Its an Ok beer but looking back... all I can donis think... why didnt anyone of my "good friends" tell me how iff I was. —by Paul the Ripper

    WANT TO PLAY A GAME? Seeing the BBVD acronym in all the reviews made me think of another few websites that like to use similar acronyms....see how many you can get right? If you get more then 80% of them you are at a Sinarski level in this game. BBW, BBC, BDSM, PAWG, MILF, GILF, SFW, DP, VR, JOI, DP, POV, ATM, FEMDOM, Cuckold, and Bukkake—by Paul the Ripper

    Police Officer: "How much have you had to drink to night?" Me: "Just 3 beers officer" Me again (in slurred voice): "Seriously I only had 3 BBVD's" Darn good beer that hides the 12% booze. Gave it an extra point for the 12% abv. Us Irish guys need something a little higher in Octane to get us going and this is it! —by Paul the Ripper

  • La Trappe Quad

    Every had a girl (or another person of the same or opposite sex…maybe they don’t identify with a particular sex but whatever “it” is) that was interested in you and she had an amazing ___X____ (insert favorite body part for primal mating attraction) but God (and or what or whom ever you consider a “god”) has balanced her out by giving her an offsetting hideous quality (like, a butter-face or a messed up grill) but she was a cool “person” and great in the sack but you could never commit? That is how I feel about Quad’s as a whole and La Trappe is a fine example of one at that. Quads can be great and very tasty but the lure of a sexy IPA will win my attention every time leaving the La Trappe alone and on the shelf for another time that she is the only option around. —by Paul the Ripper

  • Conshy Type A

    [True Story Alert] On Saturday when I had my Conshy Type A I was mixed on how I felt about it and needed inspiration to find the words to share with you that reflected my thoughts most accurately. That is when fate intervened. This beer was just like the punch in the mouth I got from my mother-in-law on Saturday night after consuming Type A (and several other yummy concoctions). Upon deeper reflection, I think it might have been an FOB "inspired" punch- who knew she would be sensitive to a age joke at her expense. Either way...Type A was like her punch to my mouth because at first I was a bit surprised by it but and felt like reacting similar to the kid below but after a few mins went by I realized it could have been quite a bit better. —by Paul the Ripper

  • Conshy Type A

    Hey, If you are going to get popped by your kids grandma…you want it to count and maybe draw some blood or have a fat-lip for a souvenir. Type A has a great start with a good nose. The first few sips were very yummy but towards the middle and end it started to fade out. Having said that...barring any future Beer Mule trips by the crew...this could be a really tasty nod to "Freedom and Unity" state to provide an essence of that style of IPA and could have a solid place in the beer fridge rotation. —by Paul the Ripper

  • Troeg's Chocolate Stout

    Every sign up for a 28 day challenge? Maybe even 2 contradicting 28 day challenges...maybe one was motivated by the pull of Domican weather in the clutches of winter but you dont want to feel like a bloated piece of milk-toast...Or one is motivated by your love of beer and the lure of 24 amazing beers in 28 days? Fitness and FOB go together like current wife and ex-wife! You know you are a FOB rookie when when you sign up for both! I signed up for the Weyerbacher Sunday Morning and the Troegs Scratch Series Chocolate Stout in one night and like 28 day challenges... ones comes out on top and the ither looks like a bitch attempt at a beer. Scratch lost this battle like memtrying tomride with Media in May. Not even close! —by Paul the Ripper

  • Sunday Morning Stout

    You know how excited you get when 2 ideas come together to serve as a perfect solution to a problem you are facing? Well, the Wyerbacher Sunday Morning Stout is the perfect abv beer to bring along when you go skiing with 4 kids! 2 of these 12.7 abv Stouts will numb even the most annoying of child nags...even a 7 y/o ADHD kid whacked out on chocalotae milk, skiing, and Red dye #40. Even heps for when the mother-in-law is along for the ride! This is a delicious stout but I did find it bit boozy and lingering on the tongue a little too sweet and long. I think the Russians have the higher alcohol stouds down a bit better then the americans on this one but it will numb whatis anoiying you at that time!! —by Paul the Ripper
