25 Beers of December part 4

Remember 25 Beers of December part1 and part2 and part 3?

Everyday in December up until Christmas, I'm drinking a different beer. Some of them are from the "Twelve Days of IPA's" 12 pack that my wife bought me. Some of them are homebrews. Some are from local breweries.

We left off on the 21st of December, which means we have 4 beers left to share.

On the 22nd of December, I had SheppyBrew's Schreck Gartenzwerg Pilsner

Schreck Gartenzwerg is a German Pilsner flavored and dry hopped with new - style German hops, Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon. Maybe not a traditional German Pils, but oh so yummy!

On the 23rd of December, I went back to the Twelve Days of IPA's pack and pulled out a Stone Go To IPA.

This is a delicious session IPA, and surprisingly I thought it might be my favorite of the pack so far. It has a crisp, clean, and dry malt bill with great hop flavor and aroma. Lots of melon and citrus.

On Christmas Eve, I popped open Stone's Scorpion Bowl IPA from the Twelve Days of IPA's pack.

I thought this one was my new favorite. The hops were floral, tropical and fruity and the malt was exactly what I like about West-coast IPA's. Merry Christmas (Eve) to me!

And ... on Christmas ... I popped open the last of my Twelve Days of IPA's pack, Stone's Ruination Double IPA 2.0.

Apparently, I saved the best for last. This was my favorite of the 12 pack. Piney, citrusy, tropical without being too aggressively bitter. Honestly, everything I like in an IPA.

And, there you have it, the last of my 25 Beers of December. One beer a day for 25 days leading up to Christmas.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and will have an awesome 2021. 

Not sure if I'll do something similar next year or not. You'll have to stay tuned to find out.

Go Bears!
