When Shane and I were accompanied with a group of friends to the Stoudt’s Brewery tour, I ended up picking up a bottle of the Old Abominable Barleywine (Brewer’s Reserve). The Brewer’s Reserve from Stoudt’s is a chance for the brewmasters to give a twist to one of their signature beers. The brew came in a 750 ml bottle that is hand corked.

This past weekend we had the pleasure of meeting two local Philadelphia Twitter beer geeks, Kelly and Brendan at Craft Ale House. We wanted to do a group tasting and put it into review. We all agreed upon the Rye IPA at 7.2% ABV by the very local Dock Street Brewing Company out of West Philadelphia.
The delicious Dogfish Head delivers their American IPA, Aprihop, at 7% ABV. This bottle I’ve gathered for review is dated 2/26/2010, making it obviously a 2010 version of the much desired and loved Aprihop brew. I’ve heard different things in the past about different years tasting different from one to the next, but this review is based solely on the 2010 version.
Congratulations, @barleyapint, for winning the contest!

Hooray for hops! The picture on the bottle says it all, Tröegs squeezes hops for all they are worth to make this wonderfully hoppy beer. I have had this beer on tap, on hand pump, and in a bottle. It is interesting to contrast the three, as well as how the beer has changed over the years. For this review I’m using a 2010 bottle poured into a pint glass, conveniently branded of course.
