Hapa's Brewing Co's Pillars of Creation DIPA
Episode Notes It’s the Two Minute Beer Review! I’m Andrew Burkum, and once again I’m your companion as we face down that massive craft brew aisle in search of the hidden treasures we’ve been missing out on all along. This week we’re taking a look at Pillars of Creation Double IPA by Hapa’s Brewing Company in San Jose, CA. Is this beer an astronomical wonder of the universe? Let’s find out! Pillars of Creation pours yellow and hazy, just the way it should be. The scent is surprisingly subdued, but has almost a savory note to it. From smell alone I don’t get any hints about what this beer will taste like. Exciting! But what about that taste? At first blush, Pillars of Creation is extremely mild with just a bit of bitterness right in the middle of my tongue. It’s neither particularly juicy nor piney, so we are kind of treading new ground here with the hops mixture that Hapa’s is using. Curiously, there’s just a little bit of what I would describe as an almost salty flavor that hangs around at the very end of the swallow. It’s a very different IPA, and to be honest I’m not entirely sure how to categorize it. This beer is fine. It’s not my favorite example of the style and to be honest, not my favorite brew from Hapa’s, but they are a company that I really like, so I still heartily recommend them and look forward to tasting my way through the rest of their catalog! In the end, I find this beer hits that magical word, drinkable,” but it’s not a repeat experience for me. It comes in at a 7.7% ABV, so if you do like it, it should be right in the pocket for a pleasant drinking experience. Well that’s all for this week, but I hope you’ll join me next week as I taste Belgian Bump from Local Brewing Company in San Francisco, CA. Is this an international speed bump of a beer? We’ll find out next week!

Dust Bowl Brewing Co's 10th Anniversary Barrel Aged Blend
Episode Notes Episode 42: 10th Anniversary Barrel Aged Blend It’s the Two Minute Beer Review! I’m Andrew Burkum, and once again I’m your companion as we face down that massive craft brew aisle in search of the hidden treasures we’ve been missing out on all along. This week I have a very special episode for you. Dust Bowl Brewing, in Turlock, California, is one of my favorite breweries. They brew a ton of really great beers and do a great job of being tied to the community as well. If you’re a regular listener, you know that I’ve already reviewed several beers from Dust Bowl and got to sit down and chat live with some of the masterminds that keep the beer flowing. For that interview, just look up the episode we did on Dust Bowl’s Resilience IPA. All of this to say that this weekend Dust Bowl celebrated their 10th anniversary. So I am taking this moment to say thanks to the fine folks at Dust Bowl and a very happy anniversary from the Two Minute Beer Review. IN celebration, this week we’re going to take a look at Dust Bowl’s special edition 10th Anniversary Barrel Aged Blend. Does this wax-sealed wonder deliver on 10 years of experience? Let’s find out! The 10th anniversary blend pours a nice, inviting deep, dark brown. It’s crowned by a creamy tan head that hugs the surface of the brown depths. Immediately, there is a strong smell of molasses and brown sugar. The scent is deep and malty but there’s no hint of chocolate or coffee like you might expect out of a beer this dark. There is just a touch of bourbon in the nose—I’m sure that’s coming from the barrels in which the brew was aged. But what about the taste? This beer starts sweet and caramel up in the front of the mouth which immediately gives way to a wave of roasted malt flavor that washed over and through the entire mouth. There’s just a tiny bit of bitterness in the very back that’s balanced perfectly and keeps this strong beer from feeling too much like a dessert. There’s some fruit in there as well, deep and dark. The feeling of this beer in the mouth is very full and rich. It’s dense in both flavor and texture like a nice thick slice of dense cake would be. There’s the essence of the barrel there in the swallow as well, but it’s not overpowering the rich and complex flavors of the beer. This Barrel Aged Brew is complex, delicious and most importantly different from anything else that’s hanging around out there right now. The masters at Dust Bowl have put their experience to good use and have created a masterpiece. And at a 12% ABV you’ll only need one if you know what I mean! Well that’s all for this week, but I hope you’ll join me next week as I rejoin our friends at Hapa’s brewing and try out their Pillars of Creation Double IPA. Does this one have all the energy necessary to give birth to a new star? We’ll find out next week! Look for links to this week’s beer and brewery in the show notes and as always, be sure to follow the Two Minute Beer Review on Facebook and twitter for information on upcoming episodes and events.

Moonraker Brewing's Amelia IPA
Episode Notes It’s the Two Minute Beer Review! I’m Andrew Burkum, and once again I’m your companion as we face down that massive craft brew aisle in search of the hidden treasures we’ve been missing out on all along. This week we’re going to take a look at Amelia Coconut IPA from Moonraker Brewing in Auburn, CA. Is this one worth the climb up the palm tree? Let’s find out! Amelia pours a hazy straw yellow and looks quite a bit like pineapple juice. So far we’re definitely keeping to the tropical theme. It smells like juicy citrus mixed in with a soft wave of coconut cream. Actually, there’s a surprising amount of this coconut smell—the beer smells almost like a Pina colada! But what about the taste? This beer is instantly sugary on the palate, with only a tiny wash of bitterness right at the very end. The flavor carries that same creamy coconut character that I noticed in the scent—I’m guessing that the creamy nature is from the lactose that is listed on the label. It gives the beer a very milky finish that enhances the general feel of drinking a coconut cream pie. Amelia starts sweet and finishes sweet. I find that that little bit of bitterness in there isn’t enough to offset that impression. If you like your beers sweet then this is one for you, if not, not so much. Amelia is a very interesting brew and there are things about it that I like—especially that smooth and creamy mouth feel. But at the end of the day the overpowering sweetness keeps it out of the recommended column for me personally. Amelia is available in cans and on tap at Moonraker’s facility in Auburn, CA. It runs a 7.0% ABV and might be just your thing if you’re looking to substitute a nice, healthy beer for your usual dessert. Well that’s all for this week, but I hope you’ll join me next week as I take a look at Dust Bowl Brewing’s 10th Anniversary Barrel Aged Blend! I’m excited to be celebrating the birthday of one of my favorite breweries out there and thrilled to have gotten my hands on a bottle of this extra special brew for the occasion.
