Easter Bunny VS Unicorn

Pipeworks Brewing Company

Wheatwine

6.5/10 by scot have another Easter Bunny VS Unicorn by Pipeworks Brewing Company

Pours with a slight chill haze into a snifter. Foam is off-white, not quite beige and minimal, while it runs away to hide quickly. Lacing is sporadic and spotted. Aroma reminds me of Nelson Sauvin hops: strawberry and blackberry laden. Light hints of alcohol that are beaten back but the berries. Toffee maybe butterscotch highlights the malt character. The berries really subdue the rest and come across as delicate in spite. Taste is built on caramel and toffee flavors (long boil and malts?...read more

Instigator

Odd Side Ales

American Imperial IPA

8.3/10 by rich have another Instigator by Odd Side Ales

A: Copper amber color, clear with an off-white soft meringue like foam head. S: Mostly my impression is strawberries or papaya or melons. There's some low notes of citrus, probably grapefruit but very subtle. T: Not sweet, more toffee like is the malt presence. Then come the fruit flavors, initially I think papaya and melons, but then I am unsure if it's more strawberry. All of the malts and fruit blend well. A little hop bite creeps in at the end, but not very pronounced. Very middle of the r...read more

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
