Pirate Ale's Junkyard Amber

Aroma: Very little aroma, slight hoppiness (still had a slight cold though). 8/12

Appearance: Dark copper color, good head retention. 3/3

Flavor: Nice flavor, can taste some of the munich, none of the grains come through too strong though. Slight sweetness, not much hop character, decently balanced\0. 15/20

Mouthfeel: Very Good body in this beer from all the grains, slightest astringency \0 4/5

Overall: A good beer, though not very much hop character came through, maybe due to the 1.06 OG and multiple different grains. Very drinkable.\0 8/10

Total 38/50

Pirate Ale's 777 IPA

Aroma: Nice hoppy aroma, perfect for style, floral 10/12

Appearance: Copper red color, great head retention 3/3

Flavor: Delicious. Good bitterness, great hop taste, dry hopped? Rye gives nice spicyness, just overall awesome hop flavor, slight sweetness (crystal?) 18/20

Mouthfeel: well carbonated (on the high side - good), great body, little alcohol warming 4/5

Overall: Much better than my version. This is a truly great beer, I could drink it all
night, wonderful hop profile with good body to balance it out. Well done. 9/10

Total 45/50

Thanks so much for all the feedback. I am glad you liked them. I dry hopped with Glacier plugs for at least a week on this one.

Really? I've been thinking about trying Glacier since my LHBS will have a bunch of them - I'm definitely giving them a go now.

Again, I’m scoring this on two levels…one score against the strict BJCP style guidelines, and one as just a general beer review.

So for instance, a score of 2/3/3 would be: 2 scored against the style guidelines, 3 potential max score, 3 as a general beer review score.

Pirate Ale’s 777 India Pale Ale


AROMA:
Malty. Spicy. Beautiful aroma. Rich and a hint of pine coming through. Very inviting.10/12/11

APPEARANCE
Medium to dark brown. Cloudy, but not “mucky”. Very nice cream colored head on the pour that is rich and firm. The appearance can’t help but be even better because of the aroma wafting around. 2/3/3

FLAVOR
Strong malt with immediate strong and very well balanced hops bitterness. Beyond the bitterness is a rich rye flavor and a distinguished pine flavor. Very well balance and very rich…yet crisp. Can’t get over how nice the hops are done. Good bitterness, nice pine flavor and definite citrus aroma. No bad aftertaste. Very…very good tasting beer. Exactly what you want in a “spicy” IPA.15/20/18

MOUTHFEEL
Rich and smooth. Excellent carbonation. Beautiful head retention and lacing. Chewy, but spicy. The Pine hops really help the mouthfeel.5/5/5

OVERALL
A very good IPA. Very satisfying as an IPA, and very drinkable. A beer that makes you sit back with every gulp and say to yourself…”now that’s a damn fine beer”. 8/10/9

Overall, 40/50/46 .


If this were my beer I would:
Do it again.

Nice job...
