So, obviously the Sculpin is great, the Big Eye is also quite tasty. I also got back in time for Nugget Nectar and liked it a lot. I think I made the point earlier that I don't have the greatest palate, or a flair for words. The Perpetual IPA came in at the bottom of the bunch, but was still tasty. I would not hesitate to order it on draft anywhere I found it in that format. After living in Cleveland and close to Cleveland for 41 of my 45 years of life and within 10 minutes of downtown for 15 of the last 18 years, the Chill wave was easily the most pleasant surprise. It really just was not what I was expecting from an IIPA. The label mentions honey malt, and while it is definitely different than the rest of the pack, I would not just say that's because it's sweeter, but it is. My overall impression is "different" but a great different. It has plenty of hoppy goodness, but enough body to not just be a hop bomb which is what I usually find in IIPA. The other pleasant surprise is that after being in or around Cleveland for so long, I have obviously just taken them for granted. I loved this beer and. And can only hope I can find more this year before it's all gone. Overall, if anyone were to ask me about these beers, I would have nothing bad to say about any of them. The good news is that with such a variety, I have plenty of each left to continue comparing
Nice feedback. Perpetual is a unique IPA in the fact that it is hopped with Mt Hood. It has a spicy hop character. The flavor of that beer changes a lot as the temp changes. I'll need to get some Chillwave this year and give it another shot.
