Dogfishheads midas touch

So far its so so. Not a bad beer but just feel short of expectation.
Great color [no so much saffron as I thought or hoped but very golden. Kept a good head despite being at 40f when poured.
On the nose it has a kind of winey, I suppose thats from the muscat grapes.

On the tounge the first thing I get is a young wine kind of burn with a nice hop flavor backing it. It has an ale like body, kinda standard nothing to write home about.
I think this may be one where I squirrel away a bottle for a month or so. I was hoping for a more grape and honey feel to it. maybe aging it for awhile will let that happen.
Gets a B for today, maybe an A later if some of the sweetness an floaral tastes from the honey come back

These guys make a mean IPA. This one's great, there's a couple hop flakes and a seed in my glass.

Just finished the last 750ml bottle of Cream of Three Crops... time to make the cream ale... again. Gotta get my red ale and a ten gallon batch of pumpkin stout finished and bottled up. Cream of Three Crops next in line.

Had several great beers yesterday, but no chance to take pics. Highlights include Zombie Dust, Furious, Double DBA, and a Cynicale.

I have finally settled down for the day, and I'm kicking back with one of these excellent Wexford Cream Ales from a nitro can.

What did you think of DDBA?

I actually had it on tap a few months ago, so this was a chance to revisit the beer for me. I think it's delicious. Definitely a sipper. If you have a bottle of it, I recommend getting a couple of friends together to help you get through it. I mean, obviously you CAN drink it all yourself, but for me it finishes a bit too sweet to enjoy more than maybe 8-10oz at a time. I guess you might compare it with an English barleywine in that it has many of the same characteristics. It is more heavily hopped I think than, say, a JW Lee Harvest Ale, and although it is a bit boozy, it is *extremely* smooth; almost creamy. It would be quite interesting to try that beer on nitro sometime...

Where did you have it on draft? Was it a tap takeover? Did you get your XVI yet?

Since my schedule is messed up (I work on call) I had a Marshall Pub Ale, a Guiness on nitro, and a HB'ed Hefeweizen.
The pub ale is ok, but I'm not a big fan of the hops in it (glacier). I guess I'm biased toward the more citrusy hops, like cascade. Next up is another Guiness on nitro, while I browse through NB's website for more ingredients.
