Alright, time to talk about a brewery instead of a specific beer! Left Coast Brewing started distributing to Texas back in August, so if you're ever at Spec's over there look for a few of their regular lineup plus maybe a seasonal or two! The first one I tried was the Hop Juice Double IPA, probably their signature beer, and it was well received among all of the IPAs we had lined up at the IPA Day tasting! I need to try it again in a more isolated setting and really appreciate a good beer.
Since then I've also had the chance to try the seasonal Una Mas Amber Lager and the year-round Voo Doo Stout. Both beers also impressed, but especially the Una Mas which really had a lot of flavor for the typically less than powerful style. The Board Walk Saison, a summer seasonal was also a pretty solid beer and the year-round Trestles IPA was good but not quite as impressive as the Hop Juice Double IPA.
