Beer Journal #48: Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale, Supper Club, Golden Monkey, Celebrator, Midas Touch & More

Indian Brown Ale
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Inc.
Milton, DE

I drank this bottle on 2/7/15 and loved it.

Straight off the label:
7.2% alc. by vol.
A clean, well hopped brown ale brewed with caramelized sugar and hopped liberally and often.

Supper Club

Middleton, WI

On 2/7/15, I sipped this beer.

Straight off the label:
A Wisconsin State of Mind
Not Bad 

Golden Monkey
Tripel Ale With Spice Added
Victory Brewing Co.
Downington, PA

On 2/8/15, I met Golden Monkey for the first, and last, time. (That's because my quest is to drink a different beer every day).

Straight off the bottle label:
9.5% Alc./Vol.
A magical, mystical Monkey whose golden soul glows with the wisdom of the ages. This radiant ale is rich in the spirited tradition of Belgian-inspired brewing. Our Golden Monkey is both playfully delightful and profoundly satisfying. Exotic spice from the EAst rounds out this global journey to joy. Get on board. This Monkey's bound for glory!

Celebrator Doppelbock
Finest Bavarian Double Bock
Ayinger Brewery
Aying, Germany

I celebrated with this beer on 2/9/15.

Midas Touch
Handcrafted Ancient Ale
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Inc.

I savored Midas Touch on 2/9/15.

Straight off the label:
9% Alc. by Vol.
Handcrafted ancient ale with barley, honey, white muscat grapes & saffron.

Copper Lager
St. Louis, MO

I first was introduced to this beer on 2/10/15.

Straight off the bottle label:
5.7% ALC./VOL.
Proudly brewed with grains from America's heartland and toasted malt for a smooth, signature taste.

I didn't give this beer rave reviews but then, I must intercede, this beer only cost me $1.05.

Hop Head Red
Double Red India Pale Ale
Green Flash Brewing Co.
San Diego, CA

On 2/10/15, I enjoyed this double red IPA.

Straight off the bottle label:
8.1% ALC. BY VOL.
70 IBU
Amarillo Dry-Hopped
A beautiful blend, Amarillo Warrior Nugget Rich Caramel Malt Base.
This perfect ten is a HOP HEAD TURNER. A luscious beauty, Hop Head Red exudes resinous hoppy qualities from Amarillo, Warrior and Nugget to overtake the full-bodied depths of a caramel malt base. Captivating and seductive floral aromas and alluring hop flavors are the result of dry-hopping with mountains of Amarillo. The blissful union of Double India Pale and Red Ale make Hop Head Red an unforgettable obsession. Experience love at first sip. Every time.
