Red Chair

Deschutes Brewery

American Pale Ale

8.3/10 by Retrofit have another Red Chair by Deschutes Brewery

Aroma: Pleasantly hoppy. Cascade and Centennial. Very classic "C" hop. Not "pronounced", not over bearing, just noticeable. Taste: Surprisingly hoppy. Again, Cascade and Centennial, which is always nice. No obvious bitterness, just citrus with a dash of sweet and only a linger of hop bite on the back slide. I'm surprised at how much I like this this flavor. It's almost timid. Almost. Just not big either. Just the right amount of Cascade and Centennial....read more

River Ale

Deschutes Brewery

Blonde Ale

8.1/10 by Retrofit have another River Ale by Deschutes Brewery

Aroma: Hint of cascade and nugget, but not over pronounced. Hint of Munich behind that. Tastes: Like it looks. Cascade and Nugget, but just a hint. Identifiable, but not pronounced. Not bitter, just hop flavor over a hint of malt. Looks, Golden and clean. You can almost read through it. Very drinkable. What are my thoughts. It's pitched as a session beer. It won best of 2013 World Beer Awards and 2013 Best Brussels Beer Challenge. So is it good? Well a bunch of judges said yes! An...read more

Maya

Une Année

Belgian IPA

7.3/10 by Retrofit have another Maya by Une Année

This was served shaken, so the dregs were mixed into beer. I never saw a decanted version. My first impression was a classic IPA hop, maybe centennial? The aroma was quickly overwhelmed by the Belgian yeast profile which is pleasant and again not overwhelming. It's pleasant, easy to drink, alcohol is hidden. As a Belgian IPA, it hits all the points. It's fine, I'd drink it again....read more

Maya

Une Année

Belgian IPA

7.9/10 by rich have another Maya by Une Année

A: Fizzy, off white foam on top of cloudy kinda blah color. A mix of amber and gold, to be brutally honest it's a tad unattractive in appearance. To be fair, the bottle says to decant, the beer is unfiltered. S: Big hops and floral. Then spice and citrus follows, and the result is an enticing aroma. Few similar aromas come to mind. So lots of points for originality. T: First impression is that it's refreshing and nowhere near the spice or sweetness level it could have been. The hops provide f...read more

Calvera

Rising Tide Brewing Company

American Stout

7.8/10 by scot have another Calvera by Rising Tide Brewing Company

Pours opaque from the deep blackness of the brew. Mocha colored, creamy foam coats. Retention is above average for a stout with it lasting almost the entire time of the drink. Lacing doesn't exist. Aroma is neutral: no dark malt or other associated scents from the style. Plums, dark cherries and maybe even raisins highlight the subdued scent. Taste is barrel, aged. Tartness but not much cherries. The tartness hits near the end and stays withe the finish. Lingering but soft dark malts - ...read more

Espresso Imperial Stout

White Birch Brewing

American Imperial Stout

6.5/10 by scot have another Espresso Imperial Stout by White Birch Brewing

From a bottle dated April 16, 2010, numbered 203 of 516. Pours opaque with a half inch of deep brown, mocha colored foam. The foam quickly disappears. The thin layer of foam that stays behind leaves a touch of lacing on each sip that slinks back to level. Aroma is faint. Brown sugar and molasses, slanted towards the brown sugar. Dark fruits, plum, gives the sense of age. A sweet, creamy, milky scent carries, reminiscent of a milk stout. Taste has a bitterness that carries throughout, se...read more

Old HLT

Allagash Brewing Company

American Wild Ale

7.7/10 by scot have another Old HLT by Allagash Brewing Company

From a bottle label November, 2011. Pours slightly cloudy with a huge amount of pristine, white, tiny bubbled foam. Retention quickly runs away. Lacing doesn't exist much. Aroma Is funky, almost acidic tartness that has a twist of cherry. The funk is old, musty, almost over aged. Gives a sense of age. Taste is more or less: simple. Tart, really tart but not sour. There is a touch of cherry as well. Light body with a huge amount of tiny bubbled carbonation. The beer is good, it just i...read more
