Abrasive Ale

Surly Brewing Company

American Imperial IPA

9.4/10 by rich have another Abrasive Ale by Surly Brewing Company

A: Color is right in the middle of pale & deep gold. Just a very slight haze. Big, beige foamy head that was almost three fingers, but shrinks fairly quickly, and leaves lacing all over the glass. S: Citrus, citrus, and citrus. Mostly pink grapefruit. OK, a slight wisp of breadiness. T: Candied citrus is my first thought, then a quick sweetness, followed by a slight piney bite, and then fades off in a soft dryness. Really quite pleasant, in a rough shod manner. I know I overuse the term 'b...read more

Butterfly Farts Citrus Ale

Brenner Brewing

Saison

8.3/10 by rich have another Butterfly Farts Citrus Ale by Brenner Brewing

A: Two finger, very soft and frigid white foam head. Totally clear, light, gold color. S: Malt, belgian yeasty, and lemon. T: Scent caused me to be surprise by the taste of a dry sweetness with a lemon twist. Nice mouthfeel, and good carbonation. Spice favors, malts, and hops are well balanced...esp. when it comes to the hops providing great cohesion of those parts. O: I call this a refreshing, but not a wimpy summer session brew. Liked this brew, way above my expectation (that's on me not th...read more

Watermelon Gose

Terrapin Brewing Company

Gose

6.0/10 by scot have another Watermelon Gose by Terrapin Brewing Company

Pours clear with hints of chill haze. Pure white foam disappears quickly. No lacing as the foam has completely dissipated. Aroma is subtle. Light malt and tart. Hints of watermelon. Taste is a mix of watermelon, lemony lactic acid and brine. The fruit comes early, joined in the middle by brine, shortly thereafter by lactic to give a somewhat pleasant mix of flavors in the finish. Light body. Modest carbonation. Dry in the finish. Tart. The salt builds up on the back of the throat. ...read more

Rubrique A Brac

Whiner Beer Company

Bière de Garde

7.1/10 by scot have another Rubrique A Brac by Whiner Beer Company

Pours somewhat cloudy due to chill haze and the beer itself: combo. Foam is thick, off-white and frothy. Surprising, for the amount of foam, recedes rather quickly (dirty glass?). Aroma is straight up funk: Brett. Wine and/or fruit join in, possibly from the barrel aging. Taste doesn't stray far from the aroma. Light body and carbonation. Dries the palate. Minimal carbonation. A nice offering. Could use a bit more character to make it more interesting. Enjoy!...read more

Krunkles Down Under

Terrapin Brewing Company

American IPA

8.0/10 by scot have another Krunkles Down Under by Terrapin Brewing Company

Poured from a can with a best by date of 2016-12-09. Pours with a slight chill haze. An inch of off-white to tan foam, which is small bubbled and tightly packed. Retention is above average. Lacing begins immediately as it recedes. Solid looking beer. Aroma is straight orange, tangerine and just about any derivative of an orange. Light cereal grains. Grassy, almost herbal as it warms. Taste is sweet, toasty up front with grass. The middle adds the orange and tangerine hop notes. These ...read more

Oats Made Me Do It

Werk Force Brewing Company

American Pale Ale

7.3/10 by scot have another Oats Made Me Do It by Werk Force Brewing Company

Into a snifter from a 32oz growler. $10/growler fill. Pours cloudy with a huge pristine, white foam head. Retention is nice, even creating some frothiness. Surprisingly it almost completes dissipates, leaving traces here and there. Aroma leans toward hops. Pineapple, mango and papaya are strung together. Light, sweet and earthy malt support. Taste is hops up front and throughout. Not overly so, though. Pineapple and mango with floral in the finish. Light body, possibly medium carbona...read more

Andygator

Abita Brewing Co.

Maibock/Helles Bock

7.6/10 by scot have another Andygator by Abita Brewing Co.

Pours with minimal chill haze and clear, white foam. Retention is fleeting. Lacing is typical of a lager: falls back to liquid. Aroma of bread and cracker malt. Fruit and floral. Taste is bread malt that build to a lingering sweetness. Fruit, maybe bubblegum. Almost syrup like at times. Medium body and light carbonation. Dry. Not bitter. No hints of alcohol. I don't drink many maibocks, therefore I don't know much about the style. A bit to sweet for me, even if it is to style, maki...read more

Slap Fight

Monday Night Brewing

American IPA

8.9/10 by scot have another Slap Fight by Monday Night Brewing

Can had best by 11/15/2016. Pours with a slight chill haze, still able to see through. Inch of frothy foam covers. Retention is solid with the foam thinning out, instead of the usual thickening as it recedes. Sporadic, spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine and herbal hops. Dank and resinous. Bread malt holds up deep in the background. Taste has a touch of sweetness in the middle that is held up by more citrus and fruity hop flavors. Pine and herbal notes come late. Citrus and pine, hint...read more

Knee Deep Collaboration: Continental Drift

Cigar City Brewing

American IPA

7.9/10 by scot have another Knee Deep Collaboration: Continental Drift by Cigar City Brewing

Bottle date 07/13/16. Pours clear with a slight chill haze. A half-inch of white foam. Retention . Lacing coats the side of the glass, leaving behind wispy remnants. Aroma of dank, resinous hops greets the sense. Citrus and pine. Light cracker malt brings up the back side. Light, sweet bread up front. Dank hops start in the middle. Grapefruit bitterness carries in the finish, lingering, possibly to long. Medium body. Medium carbonation: not assertive. Dry, quickly and thoroughly. ...read more

Hop Gun

Funky Buddha Brewery

American IPA

6.9/10 by rich have another Hop Gun by Funky Buddha Brewery

A: Hazy pale golf, with soft medium foam. S:Initial smell is melon, and apricot. Some spice from alcohol. I'd call it refreshing. T: Herbal and bitter grapefruit.Average body. O: Nothing wrong, but question age. Disappointed there's not more fruit flavor in taste. Would definitely try again, but expect more....read more

HI-5 IPA

Terrapin Brewing Company

American Pale Ale

6.6/10 by scot have another HI-5 IPA by Terrapin Brewing Company

Poured into a FFF pint glass. Pours clear with only the slightest of chill haze. Finger of white foam, covers. Fleeting head. Thick legs, leaving spotty traces stuck on the glass. Aroma has citrus, orange and pine hops that is almost over powered by honey-like (possibly caramel) sweetness with a touch of bread. Taste is a mix of the hops and malt: honey/caramel that stays through to the finish and end, lingering around with the unbalanced bitterness. Hops are more subdued. The finish is ...read more
