Beer in a Scotch glass – Green Flash’s Green Bullet

If you’re going to drink yuppie beer, you may as well drink it from a Scotch glass.

Holy cows, I love this brew! Another of the seemingly “unfiltered” variety, it looks like there’s a tiny universe of tasty particles floating about in every glass. Green Flash classifies this as a Triple IPA. I’m the last person to know what that means, except for the following:

IPAs typically weigh in around 6-7% alcohol
DIPAs tend to hover between 7.2-9-ish%
– The Green Bullet – a TIPA – registers 10.1%, which means I’m starting to get super chatty. Apologies to my increasingly patient girlfriend.

I’ll spare you the verbosity and simply note that Green Bullet brims with flavor, character, and West Coast style – on steroids. Yet another staple in our fridge.

You, too, can get a bit tipsy after a couple of Green Bullet TIPAs from Green Flash Brewing.


Beer in a Scotch glass – Deschutes’ Chasin’ Freshies IPA

I dig unfiltered beer. I also have no idea how to brew beer. And really – I don’t even know how to properly taste beer.

When I read beer reviews, people comment on ‘mouthfeel’, ‘finish’, ‘lacing’, ‘head’… and on and on. Peeps get super nuanced, and hats off to them. I know this: if a beer is unfiltered, or even gives the impression of being unfiltered, I’m trying it. I’m really not even clear on whether Deschutes’ Chasin’ Freshies is technically unfiltered, but it looks like it probably is. Or I got a bottle with floaties. Chasin’ Floaties!

If you’re going to drink yuppie beer, you may as well drink it from a Scotch glass.

Here’s what you need to know:

Chasin’ Freshies is a seasonal beer that will probably fly off shelves because the bombers are less than $5. It’s super hoppy, and it has a snowboard on the label, which means all the Breck “Brahs” will inhale the H out of it faster than my snowboard can get jacked at Keystone (and YES, that happened three years ago. Awesome New Years Day present!).

Anyway – if you love hops *and* not having your snowboard stolen, this beer was made for you. Cheers, Brah!

“Hey, Brah! Let’s go steal that guy’s beer!” “Sick, Brah! Then we can take a phat nap! Sick!”
