For a brewery that is so close to where I live, I feel bad only having reviewed only one of Lost Rhino’s beers. That changes today with another one of their offerings, the Face Plant IPA. This 6.2% ABV IPA is put into both cans and bottles, and is brewed with whole cone cascade and centennial hops. It should be a good, straight forward IPA that isn’t overly bitter.

I made another trip out to Albuquerque New Mexico not only to visit family, but to try and find some beers I can not get back East. One of the beers I picked up comes from Epic Brewing Company in New Zealand. Their Armageddon, an American IPA, can hopefully live up to bold giant red letters on the label and creepy 6.66% ABV.
Mendocino Brewing Company is one of those breweries that I didn’t know about until I received one of their beers via a “beer of the month club” package. Out of this package I got two beers, one of them the Black Hawk Stout and the other the White Hawk IPA. Today I’ll be reviewing the White Hawk as it is 60 degrees at the end of January, and an IPA seems fitting and refreshing.
Having just reviewed a Sierra Nevada beer it is only fitting that I review another one. The Estate Homegrown Ale is brewed using organic wet hops and barley grown at the Sierra Nevada brewery in Chico, California. The beer is all organic and is one of the few estate-brewed beers in the world.
