If you want a refresher on these beers, please take a gander at the original reviews below.
Kona Wailua Wheat
Brewed by Kona Brewing Company Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
Style American Pale Wheat Ale
The Belgian monks may brew beer and have a life of zen, but there was one thing they forgot to figure into their brewing utopia – a waterfall abundant island paradise with beautiful women.
Kona brewers truly have it figured out. Read More…
Brewed by Ballast Point Brewing Company San Diego, Ca
Style American IPA
Before Ballast Point selected the sculpin to be the face of their outstanding IPA it led a life of bottom feeding solitude. Today a sculpin can swim into any tidepool, river, or kelp bed and species of all likes will buy it a drink and shake its fin. (Do you think Ballast Point Brewery has gotten even one thank you from the unappreciative bottom dwellers?) Read More…
Brewed by Stone Brewing Company Esconidido, Ca
Style Belgian IPA
One word you won’t find in Stone Brewery’s Employee Handbook is “Half-Assed.” Their beers are always crafted to a fully-polished state of complexity. This robust brew, exploding with unique flavors is no exception. Read More…
Big Daddy IPA
Brewed by: Speakeasy Brewery San Francisco, Ca
Style: American IPA
I certainly enjoy this beer, and would sum it up as a nice IPA. Not spectacular, but nowhere close to horrible.
If you’re trying to simulate the emotions of the first trimester, this is the beer to try. Its flavor, aroma, and feel change more than a sixteen year-old girl getting dressed for a first date with the high school quarterback. One sniff will send you running to the ear, nose and throat doctor thinking you have a family of bacteria living in your nostrils, but another will send you on a journey through fields of citrusy paradise.

Brewed by Lagunitas Brewing Company
Style American Double IPA
For anyone who’s had Lagunitas IPA, you probably are thinking – how does it get any better? Then again that’s what Luigi had to be thinking before Nintendo created Mario; Robin, before Marvel created Batman; Miley Cyrus before the music industry created, well, pretty much anyone else…
And on the 7th day, they created Maximus, a copper, orange bodied double IPA with a tasty finish and crisp, flowery aroma. Read More…
Brewed by: Guinness Brewery Dublin, Ireland
Style: Euro Lager
This younger sister of the iconic Irish dry stout is a refreshing beer, but is never going to be as pretty as her older sister. It’s nice, but it’s not sexy. If you drink enough of them, however, you’d take either one. (Wait is he still talking about beer or sisters? I don’t feel comfortable reading anymore). Read More…
