I think all of us were in agreement here. ITAP was a bad choice. They do not have what they advertise, the place has no character, it is one half of a bar and the other half a cooler from Liquor World. The beer was too expensive, the waitresses were unknowledgable, unapologetic, and seemed to be annoyed that we were talking about the beer we were drinking.
Here's what i had:
Southern Tier Hoppe
O'Fallon Cocoa Cream Stout
O'Fallon 5-day IPA
New Belgium Mighty Arrow
I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. Southern Tier Hoppe, Chimay Trippel, and Trois Pistoles were the trois deboires. (three disappointments)
New Belgium Mighty Arrow:
I really liked this guy. It tasted light and like it was filtered through rice krispy treats. I will enjoy drinking this outside as the weather begins to warm up. I can't wait for that.
O'Fallon IPA: I think Church key said about all of it, this thing is good. It is well balanced and is just what i want in an ipa.
Cocoa Cream Stout: I agree with Hops Prescription. this was not very creamy but very good. it was very rich, and we were both happy that we saved it for last.
there is going to be an 80's dance party at my place on friday. There will be approximately 20 female grad students and 5 guys. I am looking forward to what is left in my fridge. Last time it was 15 michelob ultra and 3 bacardi silver's.
i'm hoping something better is left this time.
