Duggan’s No. 9 IPA: Love Potion Number Nine

This American-style IPA from Cool Beer Brewing Company Incorporated in Toronto, Ontario pours a clear, rusty amber colour with a small, tan-coloured head that gets retained as a collar and leaves a small amount of lace. Duggan’s No. 9 IPA (formerly brewed by Duggan’s Brewery) has a nice citrus hop tang to the aroma, along with a sweet roasted malt and dark caramel backing.

I Grew Fond of this Beer Quickly

Duggan’s No. 9 IPA tastes tangy at the front of the tongue before a solid chocolaty malt backing kicks in. Citrus appears at almost the same time as the malts, creating a rather unique chocolate-orange flavour. This strong beer is very easy-going, with little to no trace of its ABV until you actually feel it. It goes a bit thin on the back-end before a solidly bitter aftertaste takes over.

Millennium Buzz Beer: You Gotta Simplify Man

This hemp-based beer from the Cool Beer Brewing Company Incorporated in Toronto, Ontario has a very nice, rusty, dark amber color. It pours with a thick, frothy white head that leaves moderate lace and settles as a collar. Millennium Buzz Beer has a very sweet, malty aroma with overripe or rotting fruit tones. It’s very grape-like, almost like a wine and develops a spicy, brown sugar sweetness after warming.

For the Price, You Could Do Much Worse

Millennium Buzz Beer has a real boozy overtone to the taste, like grain alcohol or cheap vodka. This is backed by a smoky oak and sweet malted corn flavour. It’s subdued overall and not very appealing. The mouthfeel is thin and watery with almost no body whatsoever. The beer leaves a yeasty, syrupy feeling on the back of the tongue.
