Beer Bloggers Conference 2016 - Speed Blogging

The 3rd time is really the charm! Tasting 10 beers in an hour can be a bit  overwhelming. This year I hit my groove and managed to live tweet my tasting notes. Here they are in summary. There are some really solid brews on this list! If you can get your hands on them, check them out...

Terrapin Watermelon Gose = LIght, tart, effervescent, salty on the front end, sweet watermelon on the finish. Great Beach Beer!

Cigar City Decoherence = Boozy on the nose, toasted coconut on the front, transitions to roasted coffee flavor dry finish. Intense flavors, loved this!

Sierra Nevada Otra Vez = Earthy citrus on the front end, salty grapefruit finish.

JDUBS Bell Cow Milk Chocolate Porter = Strong chocolate on the nose, milk chocolate and vanilla on the front end, chocolate dries out on the back end from the lactose. Key takeaway - verrrry chocolaty.  

New Belgium Citradelic IPA = Dank citrus nose, lemon and tangerine on the front end, dry dankness on the finish, light for an IPA.

Florida Beer Co. Florida Lager = grainy on the nose, dry with apple notes on the finish. Straight up yellow beer. Great pool or beach beer! 

Lagunitas IPA = Dank citrus nose, bitter and piney on the front end, dry and dank citrus on the back.

Saltwater Brewing Screamin’ Reels = Dank onion on the nose, foamy mouthfeel, sweet onion on the finish.

St. Pete Brewing 90 Shilling Scotch Ale = Sweet caramel nose, low carbonation, light body, earthy start with a light caramel finish.

Crooked Thumb Brewing Florida Grapefruit Gose = Syrupy citrus with toasted cracker on the nose, sweet citrus on the front end, bitter grapefruit on the back. Take it to the beach!
Hope you get a chance to check some of these out! Cheers!
