Doppelganger

Tree House Brewing Company

American Imperial IPA

9.5/10 by scot have another Doppelganger by Tree House Brewing Company

Pours extremely cloudy as do all the Tree House beers I have had the chance to partake. A full finger of off-white foam covers. Frothing, somewhat, as it recedes, not much residue left behind. Aroma is full of dank, tropical fruit: mango, orange, pineapple and passion fruit. Deep, lasting. Screwdriver? Herbal and resinous. Light sweetness. Taste is not quite as bold as the aroma. Slightly sweet but the hop flavors aren't as prevalent. Dank, resinous finish with slight bitterness. Not...read more

Damnation

Russian River Brewing Company

Belgian Pale Ale

9.1/10 by rich have another Damnation by Russian River Brewing Company

A: Delicate and fluffy in a pure white. Bright gold with slight haze. S: Citrus, spice, and bread. T: Spice surrounded with sweetness, and citrus in the background. Dryness comes quick, and the finish is like fine lemon pastry. O: Sopisticated, refined, and smooth. A euro spice flavor mixed with perfect balance of hop bitter and malt. RR deserves all the prop's they receive from their fans, me included....read more

Balling the Queen

Tyranena Brewing Company

American Imperial IPA

8.0/10 by scot have another Balling the Queen by Tyranena Brewing Company

My first beer from an old friend, Tyranena. Can't wait. Pours clear as day. Minimal white foam to start. Fleeting head. Good sticky lacing from the onset in spite of the lack of foam. Aroma is dank hops. Touches of alcohol, caramel and citrus hops. Taste of caramel. Dank hops early, possibly from the nose in the snifter, giving way to softer pine. Good balance of bitterness and sweetness in the finish. Both are there, neither overwhelms, vying for attention. Medium or better body wit...read more

OB IPA

Oskar Blues Grill & Brew

American IPA

8.5/10 by rich have another OB IPA by Oskar Blues Grill & Brew

Appearance: Rich gold color with a very slight haze. Downy soft white foam of adequate retenion. Smell: Pineapple, grassy, and a touch of pine. Taset: Great balance of tropical sweet, quickly neutralized by a herbal bitterness, but not lingering on either note too long. Mouth: Medium and smooth. Overall: Surprise by hoe modern this IPA was. Hooray, Oskar Blues gets hip and nails a WC style IPA....read more

Hop Perfect IPA

Yazoo Brewing Company

American IPA

8.4/10 by rich have another Hop Perfect IPA by Yazoo Brewing Company

A: Golden haze with a full, fluff&foam, white, merange like head. S: Citrus & Mellon...fresh. T: Grapefruity tart, low-med bitterness, any thought of sweetness dries out fast. Mouth: Full beer, but thins out quick. Overall: Who doesn't like Citra, and then add some Mosaic? Demands a sophisticated palate, as there's no candy sweetness here. This brew combines a big tart citrus with an almost dry cider like Belgian finish. Cool to see that the current level of Nashville brewing skills ...read more

Lost Weekend

Blue Island Beer Company

American Barleywine

8.7/10 by scot have another Lost Weekend by Blue Island Beer Company

I have long been a fan of Bryan Shimkos brewing abilities. The last beer I have had with his named attached: Hi-Fi Rye. Looking forward to this beer and many more to come. Pours clear but dark. Nary any head. Retention and lacing following. The color is a nice mahogany that no doubt is influenced by the amount of rye. Aroma is grain and rye foremost. Caramel sweet. Booze. Hints of dark fruit. Taste follows the nose. Not quite as boozy. Caramel is there, not as sweet. Dark fruits ...read more

Petite Sour - Blueberry

Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

American Wild Ale

8.8/10 by scot have another Petite Sour - Blueberry by Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

Pours clear. Light pink foam quickly runs and hides. No lacing. Aroma is tart, musty with a touch of sweet blueberry. Notion of oak. Taste lightly sweet up front with building blueberry tart and must from the middle, end and into the finish, lingering. Oak is there to add complexity. Sour and acidic Mouthfeel is thin but tons of carbonation. Crisp. Refreshing. Dry. Good amounts of blueberry sweet and tart. Another handsome offering from this line of beers. Enjoy!...read more

Sweet Baby Jesus

DuClaw Brewing Company

American Porter

4.9/10 by scot have another Sweet Baby Jesus by DuClaw Brewing Company

Pours opaque with a quarter inch of tan foam. Feeble retention. Lacing nonexistent. Aroma has hints of chocolate hidden behind a spoonful of peanut butter. Fake/artificial aromas? The taste continues but with a better balance between chocolate and peanut butter. Both taste as if they came from an extract bottle. Roast, dry finish. Light end of medium body is a stretch. Big carbonation aids in creating that faux body. The good part of the beer is the aroma before you realize that it is ...read more

Bean Flicker

Odd Side Ales

Blonde Ale

6.1/10 by scot have another Bean Flicker by Odd Side Ales

Pours clear with many floaties. Foam is minimal while retention does not exist. No lacing. Aroma is more chocolate than it is coffee. Not much else going on. Taste follows. Seems to be more chocolate than coffee. This sense of chocolate also bring some sweetness. Medium body with medium carbonation. Drinks much bigger than a blonde. I am for experimenting as I am a home brewer but when I have to pay for experimentation in a craft beer, I struggle more and more, as disappointment seems ...read more

BOMB!

Prairie Artisan Ales

American Imperial Stout

9.3/10 by scot have another BOMB! by Prairie Artisan Ales

12 ounce bottle served into a tulip glass. Pours opaque. Thin dark tan foam cover, dissipating quickly. Surprisingly lacing exists but quickly recedes. Aroma is tremendous. Cinnamon is what I perceive first but I think that is from the combination of brewing ingredients. Cocoa is the strongest ingredient. Don't know if they use powder but it seems like you are able to smell the powder as well. Pepper comes next. Vanilla is in the background. Chocolate cocoa powder surprise. Taste is ...read more

Miner's Daugher Oatmeal Stout

Mountain State Brewing Company

Oatmeal Stout

4.9/10 by scot have another Miner's Daugher Oatmeal Stout by Mountain State Brewing Company

Pours opaque. Head is off-white, not as deep of color expected for the style. Quickly runs away and hides from its initial thin layer. Wispy , sporadic lacing. Aroma is too light. Black dark malt, possibly nutty but not much else. Faint. Taste is similar to the aroma: not much going on. Black malt, nutty, hints of licorice but that could be me wanting it to be there. Nutty malt lingers. Light to medium body. This is an underwhelming beer. Expecting creaminess from the oats along w...read more

Tarte Nouveau

Weyerbacher Brewing Company

American Wild Ale

6.5/10 by scot have another Tarte Nouveau by Weyerbacher Brewing Company

Two dates on the bottle: 03/23/15 and 09/23/15. Brewed on, bottle on, consume on, etc? Pours with a slight haze. Served cold. Minimal, almost no, foam. White and thin. No lacing. Aroma is white wine like, possibly pear. Light tart, thoughts of brett. Overall, meager aromatics. Taste is wine like up front, once again, pear is included. Middle gives way to a sweet orange which lingers into the finish. Sticks around. Light up front with building body. Still crisp. Carbonation is almost...read more
