We played some basketball, then Tripps brought some brews to split while we watched the Kentucky/UConn final.
First up, Clown Shoes Space Cake Double IPA. It came in at 9% ABV. There was some bitter pine in the initial taste. That gave way to a tropical fruit flavor and some alcohol through the middle and aftertaste. The alcohol was mostly in the background and not overpowering. This was a really good beer!
Second was a new offering from Pretty Things named Grampus. It was a Hoppy Golden Double Mash. It came in 10.5% ABV. It was malty with a little citrus/fruit flavor in the background. There was a bit of alcohol in the aftertaste. This was a great brew!
Last was Dogfish Head Bitches Brew. It’s a stout brewed with honey and gesho. Gesho is a plant indigenous to southwestern Africa. It came in at 9% ABV. It was a delicious stout with a light taste of honey.
Great beers for a great night of basketball!
