Pairing bicycles and craft beer.

Going Home

This beer pours an apricot/orange with a thick head that dissipates slowly and leaves good lacing. Aroma is orange juice. As the can says, citrus, tropical, hazy and juicy, to which I would add a bit dank, grassy and piney. Moderate... Read More

CA in NJ – Part 3

Comes as advertised.  Clear coppery pour with a fine, right head. Big vanilla smell that is slightly less in taste but definitely still there. Virtually no hops to speak of, but they are there in the forms of a slightly bitter aftertaste.... Read More

Railing on Craft Beer

This beer pours lightly gold and is a little cloudy. There was a foamy head with almost no lacing. The taste was, well, blueberries! In fact, very strong blueberries from start to finish. The brewery delivered on the label and I gotta... Read More

Dropping Out

I’ve always been a Founders All Day IPA guy whenever I needed to offset some stronger ABV craft beers especially after a long ride. That’s changed as of late when I discovered more all day session ales are out there, and... Read More
