Our Decision from Our Beer Tasting!

Just Like in Super Bowl 52, Philly Beats New England! Victory Brewing continues to impress us! The Cloud Walker was in fact cloudy and juicy. A little sediment could be found at the bottom of the glass. That was expected and welcomed! Slam it from a chilled vessel and you will feel like you are in the clouds.

Next, Victory’s No Brainer was just that. If you are looking for a solid IPA that is a higher ABV but not too filling, this is the ride for you. But make sure you GET a ride home!

Rounding out Philly area beers is our neighbor to the West, Lancaster Brewing and their IPA, Hop Hog! This was delicious, hoppy and heady. I’d hop on this hog any time!

Finally there was Thomas Hooker’s No Filter. I found it to be a bit weak. A bit young tasting. Perhaps it was canned prematurely, because I feel if it was a bit more mature, it could be a winner.
