Maniacal - Double IPA - Port City Brewing - ABV 8.5%

Pours a deep amber with a large head. I'll cut through the chase with this beer. Upon opening it had a slightly skunked smell to it. I was hopimg my nose was misleading me but upon tasting there was an off taste and straight bitter is all I got from this one. The date bottled was 1/12/18 and it was only 3 months in so I cant expalain the taste. Hopefully this was just a bad batch but it's all we have to go on.

RATING 5.00 out of 10

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.

Softly Spoken Magic Spells - Singlecut Beersmiths - Queens, New York - ABV 8.6% - 131 IBU's (whoa!)

Softly Spoken Magic Spells - Singlecut Beersmiths - Queens, New York - ABV 8.6% - 131 IBU's  (whoa!)

Pours a hazy amber with a decent head that dissapates pretty quick and leaves some lacing. The nose is juicy. Smell of apricot, orange and grapefruit come through. The smell gives the impression it might be sweet but its not. As for the taste, first off I must say that this brew does not lack bitter as the 131 IBU's might indicate. It's also pretty rindy with grapefruit, a little grass and pine. Its sticky but not over the top. As this brew warms the malt gets a bit more pronounced. If you want a big dank brew this is your beer.
