Shakedown

Fat Head's Brewery & Saloon

American Imperial Stout

8.8/10 by scot have another Shakedown by Fat Head's Brewery & Saloon

Pours opaque with no light penetrating the edges. An inch of mocha colored, thick, malty foam covers. Great retention. Lacing begins and lasts all the way through: sticky and thick. Aroma is the typical dark malt: chocolate, roast and coffee but tons of citrus and pine, more than likely from heaping helpings of hops. Taste more stout and hop combo. Chocolate, roast and char, almost smokey. Coffee and leather come in the middle. Leather lasts through to the end. Citrus hops are bigger th...read more

Supernova

Valkyrie Brewing Company

American IPA

5.8/10 by scot have another Supernova by Valkyrie Brewing Company

Pours almost clear, the dark color makes it seem cloudier than it actually is. An inch or more of off-white, thick foam covers. Retention is fantastic. Lacing is thick, coating and sticky. Aroma is malt forward. Very little hops. Slightly oxidized. Spice. Taste is malt forward as well: caramel and darker malts. Not much of an aftertaste. What is there, carries malt and some oxidization. Medium body and carbonation. Between dry and juicy, trending towards dry as more consumed. No hop...read more

Hop Juice

Left Coast Brewing Company

American Imperial IPA

5.9/10 by scot have another Hop Juice by Left Coast Brewing Company

Pours clear with almost two fingers of off-white foam. Retention is solid, leaving lacing as it recedes that is narrowly thick. Aroma of deep caramel, almost borders on a barley wine. Almost dark fruits. Spice hops. Faint hints of alcohol. Taste follows the nose. Dark, deep caramel carries from start to finish. Spice hops lend some balance. Not really bitter. Thick body. Minimal carbonation that finishes with booze. Grabbing a DIPA makes me want hops, tons of hops. Aroma should wack...read more

Liliko'i Kepolo

Avery Brewing

Witbeir

7.9/10 by scot have another Liliko'i Kepolo by Avery Brewing

Pours cloudy with a pure white head. Retention isn't there. Lacing is juicing, spotty, and eventually rolls back between sips. Aroma is sweet up front. Passion fruit adds a tropical note that is aided by a shallow tartness. Coriander orange and pepper are there as well. Tart, tropical passion fruit and sweetness carry this beer. The fruit carries tartness. Orange and pepper are there but take a back seat. Medium body and carbonation. Juicy early, becoming dry late. The passion fruit a...read more

ZeeLander

Toppling Goliath Brewing Company

American IPA

9.0/10 by scot have another ZeeLander by Toppling Goliath Brewing Company

Pours quite cloudy. An inch of white foam exits. Retention is rather low for an IPA. Lacing is thin in nature, numerous and consistent. Aroma is pale malt, touch of sweet. Lots of hops. Grapefruit, orange with pine hiding behind. Resinous, almost dank. Taste is definitely sweet, accompanied by bursting hop flavors. Grapefruit and orange. Pine accents again. The beer is so dry, bitterness does build after a while. Heaving end of medium body, maybe bleeding into the lower end of light...read more

Hop Savant - Citra

Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

American IPA

8.9/10 by scot have another Hop Savant - Citra by Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

From a May 2015 bottle into a Crooked Stave snifter. Pours slightly cloudy. A pure white, softly packed foam covers. Froths as it recedes, slowly, becoming quite thick. Lacing throughout. Thickly layered in thin strips around the glass. Aroma is citra from the initial crack of the bottle crown. Afterwards the scents retreat to a place similar to the amarillo version. Lemon, tart, Brett, and light touch of sweetness. Brett takes the center as it warms. Taste offers up sweetness and Brett...read more

Hop Savant - Amarillo

Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

American IPA

7.4/10 by scot have another Hop Savant - Amarillo by Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

Pours slightly cloudy. A pure white, softly packed foam covers which quickly runs away and hits leaving sporadic light traces of past glory. Aroma is lemony tartness. There is a sweetness that keeps getting beaten back by tart. Brett, floral hops and lemon grass mingle in between. Taste is a bit of a let down. Never really builds to a medium level of excitement to the mouth. Lemon, tartness, Brett and a touch of sweetness coexist. Medium body with mild carbonation. Dry. No bitterness...read more

HHG APA

Central Waters Brewing Company

American Pale Ale

9.2/10 by scot have another HHG APA by Central Waters Brewing Company

Pours with a touch of chill haze. An inch of white foam is rather fleeting. Lacing is sticky, throughout and sporadic. Aroma is thick with tropical fruits. Pineapple, melon, mango and grapefruit. Dank pine. Malt takes a back seat but pale sweetness creates the backbone: simple. Taste doesn't bring it like the aroma but is still solid. Lightly sweet up front, mingling with a transition to hops in the middle. More tropical fruit (grapefruit, mango and pineapple), splashed with pine. Fini...read more

4.0 GPA

Bull & Bush Brewery

American Pale Ale

7.4/10 by scot have another 4.0 GPA by Bull & Bush Brewery

Bottled on 2015-04-15. Pours with a light chill haze but otherwise clear. Frothy, one-inch of white foam coats the top. Retention is quite good. Minimal lacing. Aroma is a blend of malt, hop and juice. The malt is clean, sweet and bread crust. Hops are floral, slight spice. Bread is the strongest of the scents, especially as it warms. Taste is full of bread, bread crust, and even biscuit. Floral hops come through from the middle to the finish. Bread and floral hops linger. Surprisin...read more

500 BC

Humboldts Brewing Company

American Imperial IPA

6.5/10 by scot have another 500 BC by Humboldts Brewing Company

Pours with a chill haze and a bit more than a finger of frothy foam. Above average retention. Solid lacing throughout. Aroma is more malt forward than hop. Deep, rich caramel, almost toffee but too sweet while including hints of dark fruits. Roasted, almost burnt comes to mind. Hop are resinous, some citrus. Taste starts off subtle before a huge hit of malt in the middle that lasts to the end, lingering in the finish. Hops attempt to balance but sweet, light bitterness in the finish acco...read more
