This is a huge beer. Even the head is black, and you can smell the malt over the hops. And it has a lot of hops.

Named for its ABV: 10.5%. Try this one last, and settle in after you do. Hell, split a can. Just...take the night off.

Not very summer-like. A little pepper seems to be added to the beer. I enjoyed it anyway.

13% is a bit on the heavy side
 
gets pretty good ratings on beeradvocate but the part I don't like is right on the label: Ale Brewed with Natural Flavors

I know you said it was light but with the name "Heavy Melon" I thought it would have more punch... it's light, and the fruit isn't more than a suggestion. I'm glad we got a lot of it.
 
edit: Just burped. There's the watermelon

No, really! This stuff rocks. Light without being insipid and you can really taste the watermelon.

Justine and I have been going to our new brewpub's trivia night and last week I tried a beer that's really really good. I went to BeerAdvocate to rate it but they only had a couple of beers listed. So I FB'd the brewery (I don't know them at all) and told them to go add their beers so I could rate them. Never heard back so I said "okay then, tell me the specifics so I can add them correctly" and someone there said "sorry man, super busy, I'll get that info for you asap" like I was his boss or something
 
So I've been adding beers to BA tonite. WYOld West Brewing Co. 
 
 
Does that logo look like a bat to you? They didn't ask me for a logo.

Price controls and the expropriation of farms and businesses have driven down food production. Lines outside supermarkets grow longer, and shortages of staples like milk, meat and bread have led to outbreaks of rioting and looting.

Still, the government refuses to change course.

But in a bizarre twist, President Nicolás Maduro is trying to pin the crisis on Polar. Government TV spots claim — without evidence — that the company is deliberately scaling back food production and hiding inventories to sabotage the economy.

Furloughed Polar workers picket outside Polar's Caracas brewery, which shut down in April. They are protesting against the government, which has impeded Polar's ability to import barley.

In a February speech, Maduro called Polar's Mendoza "a thief and a traitor," saying, "If you can't run your company, turn it over to the people and they will run it."

Mendoza says he is baffled by the attacks. In a TV interview, he pointed out that left-wing governments in Nicaragua, Bolivia and Ecuador have all embraced the private sector. Although these countries lack Venezuela's massive oil wealth, Mendoza pointed out that their economies are growing.

"I think it's actually remarkable that things aren't worse. And I think it's largely because there are some producers that are committed enough to Venezuela that they want to continue operating," says David Smilde, a sociologist at Tulane University who specializes in Latin America. He says private food companies like Polar have helped to prevent the total collapse of Venezuela.

That's it! The reviews are interesting. I didn't really find the watermelon to be overpowering - more so the hops. Then again, I'm not a big IPA guy, so it wasn't a wise purchase (I was kind of in a hurry at the store and missed that it was a double IPA). One of the reviewers uses the term "hop bomb." {#Yes}

And you're right, it was expensive {#Lol}

Edit: My 6-pack was $14, apparently not quite as pricey as some of their varieties. Still, I won't be spending that amount on a 6-pack again without doing proper due diligence.
