Mandala Single Hop Series

Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

American Imperial IPA

8.3/10 by Matt have another Mandala Single Hop Series by Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

Given to me by a dude. Canned 12/21. Deep gold, slightly cloudy with particulates. Mildly bitter hop scent. Taste is hoppy with mild fruity tang. Kind of a creamy feel to it with a slight alcohol kick. Rather enjoyable. Two notes: centennial hops in this one, and it's 9% abv, not ten....read more

Mystic Mama

Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

American IPA

8.4/10 by Matt have another Mystic Mama by Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

Given to me by a beer dude. Clear pale gold color, good retention and placing. Strong hop presence on the smell, not as strong on the taste. Slight bitterness with a mild citrus presence. Not the best Jackie O's pale ale I've had, but a pretty good one....read more

Mystic Mama

Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

American IPA

6.8/10 by scot have another Mystic Mama by Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

Pours clear with a half inch of pure white foam. Retention is average. Lacing is spotty, mostly sliding back to level. Aroma is hops: grass, lemon, and citrus. No malt profile to speak of - easily apparent by the color: base malt, not much else? Taste once again lacks much in the way of malt. Possibly a nod towards sweetness. Bitter in the finish, not smooth: a bit rough. Grass and lemon are strong in the finish. Citrus is mellow. Light end of medium body. Spritzy carbonation. Doesn'...read more

Java The Stout

Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

American Stout

8.1/10 by scot have another Java The Stout by Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

Pours opaque. Direct light can be seen on the edges and bottom. Half inch of frothy, mocha foam covers. Great retention. Thick lacing that leaves traces throughout. Aroma is coffee early and often: the overlying scent. Carmel sweetness joins as well as a light roasted, bitter. The sweetness is bigger than the bitter, allowing for a more sweet forward nose. Taste is more coffee but most of the flavor is late. Coffee, roast and bitterness prevail. The sweet is there but more balancing i...read more

Harvest Ale

Founders Brewing Company

American IPA

9.3/10 by rich have another Harvest Ale by Founders Brewing Company

A: Appealing medium gold and clear. Off white, huge meringue foam head. S: Lemony citrus, pine, and spring grassiness. Touch of sweet, biscuity malt in the background. T: Very good balance of orange/lemon citrus, medium sweet, and light grassy flavors. Bitterness is perfect match to malt, not lingering. Finishes clean and bright. O: Well made and balanced. Shows off the fresh hops is a very appealing and drinkable manner. I would have this beer over and over again....read more

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
