Fort Point Galaxy Dry Hopped

Trillium Brewing Company

American Pale Ale

9.4/10 by scot have another Fort Point Galaxy Dry Hopped by Trillium Brewing Company

Can date: 2017-02-21. Pours opaque; no light penetrates the edges as well. Murky. White foam but doesn't last. No lacing. Aroma is huge on the tropical and citrus fruits. Juicy. Pineapple, mango, papaya, orange and passion fruit. Over the top on the nose. Light sweetness. Taste takes the lead from the aroma but isn't as intense. Almost no malt backbone and only minimal bitterness. Orange, mango, and pineapple. Some resin. Light body. High end of medium carbonation, possibly more. ...read more

Free Rise

Trillium Brewing Company

Saison

9.0/10 by rich have another Free Rise by Trillium Brewing Company

A:Yellow straw with lot's of NE haze (or fog). Foam head was white, and a big bubbly soft foam. It is a visually enticing beer. S: First smell is banana & clove, but then the overlying scent is fruit...tropical, or citrus, a huge mixture of fruity flavors. Not bold or over powering, but mildly pleasant. T: First are typical saison flavors but spice is somewhat muted. Mixed of banana and others tropical fruits. Light clove in the background. Not bitter in any way. Very nice body. Ends more ...read more

Guava Gose Smack

Noon Whistle Brewing

Gose

9.0/10 by scot have another Guava Gose Smack by Noon Whistle Brewing

Huge amount of pure, white foam that, in spite of the heaping helping, leaves almost as fast at it is poured into the glass. No lacing. Clear. Each pour makes the hissing sound reminiscent of pouring a can of pepsi into a glass over ice. Aroma of sweet fruit (sweet tart, maybe). Yeast and earth scents late. I couldn't tell you the fruit was guava but the sweet fruit, up front, is really present. Taste is sweet up front, quickly giving way to a battle of tart and salt in the middle that ne...read more

Alpha Hive

Coop Ale Works

American Imperial IPA

7.6/10 by scot have another Alpha Hive by Coop Ale Works

Pours almost clear. Eighth inch of white foam covers. Fleeting. Some lacing, minimal, not really sticky. Aroma of dank resin, orange, grapefruit, honey with herbal notes. Caramel hop presence is strong. Taste of herbal, caramel, possibly toffee throughout. Orange and honey mix with the herbal to create quite the trio. Some bitterness, building with each sip. Late grapefruit. High end of medium body, syrupy before the palate adjusts. Medium carbonation. Some alcohol, but not prevalent...read more

Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat

Tallgrass Brewing Company

Milk/Sweet/Cream Sout

6.5/10 by scot have another Vanilla Bean Buffalo Sweat by Tallgrass Brewing Company

Drink by 2017-05-05. Pours opaque with a half inch of tan foam. No lacing. Foam quickly leaves the glass entirely. Roasted malt is at the forefront. Not much else. Surprised there isn't any vanilla, based on the name. A touch of caramel sweetness; slight. Hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is roasted malt up front that gives way to some caramel, chocolate, and bitter coffee in the end that lingers into the finish. Hints of smoke and milk sweetness. Back of the throat really caries ...read more

Amarillo

Pipeworks Brewing Company

American Imperial IPA

8.2/10 by scot have another Amarillo by Pipeworks Brewing Company

Pours with an inch of white foam. Haze makes it impossible to see through but not opaque. Retention is below average for an IPA. Lacing is sporadic. Aroma is pure Amarillo: floral and orange. Light caramel and bready/nutty malt backbone. Once the beer warms, the hop aroma lessens with the malt backbone becoming stronger. This more of a malty DIPA than hop forward. Still enough hops to hold up some, just fleeting the longer the beer sits. Caramel, bread mix with orange and resin. Not mu...read more

Barrel Aged Hibernation

Great Divide Brewing Company

Old Ale

8.1/10 by scot have another Barrel Aged Hibernation by Great Divide Brewing Company

Bottled February 16, 2106. Pours somewhat opaque from the color of the beer. Half a finger of tan colored foam; pretty. Fleeting. No lacing. Floaties. Aroma oak, chocolate, dark sugars (almost boarding on dark fruits - comes with age?). Toffee. Hints of bourbon. Tobacco. Taste of chocolate, caramel, toffee, char from the barrel, almost smoke. Whiskey. Big body, almost syrup. More carbonation than expected. Minimal alcohol in the finish. A good beer, not great, as I had hoped. Qual...read more

Black Tuna

Pipeworks Brewing Company

American Black Ale

9.1/10 by Matt have another Black Tuna by Pipeworks Brewing Company

I had this the first time it came out but didn't review or rate it then, so I was excited when I saw they were releasing it again. Poured into a Pipeworks NvU snifter from a bomber. Black as the ace of spades, he was, to borrow a Monty Python phrase. As dark if not darker than most stouts, but with no thinning of color on the edges you get with that style. Constant big creamy thick head and lacing. Bold fruity, hoppy, and honey nose which follows through on the taste. There was the slightest hin...read more

Spotted Puffer

Pipeworks Brewing Company

American Imperial IPA

9.5/10 by scot have another Spotted Puffer by Pipeworks Brewing Company

Pours opaque. Minimal white foam that quickly dissipates. Some sporadic lacing. Aroma is huge on the citrus hop: pineapple, orange and lemon. Touch of honey and clean, simple sweetness. Taste is honey sweetness up front. Pineapple and orange start quickly, lasts. Finish has a tartness, possibly the puree and lemon. Later bitterness. Juicy. Medium body. Light end of medium carbonation although it is fine bubble; campaign yeast feel. Drying finish. I am really digging the "fish&q...read more

Snake Party

Lost Forty Brewing

American Imperial IPA

8.1/10 by scot have another Snake Party by Lost Forty Brewing

Pours clear with nearly an inch of white foam. Retention is average. Lacing is spotty. Aroma of ripe fruit and citrus. Caramel is big malt backbone, lesser bread. Taste is caramel sweetness up front. This quickly gives way to grapefruit, orange and a ripe fruity hop blast. Dank hop finish with a high amount of alcohol that burns the back and sides of the mouth. Warm going down. Big end of medium body, almost big as the alcohol adds to the size. Low end of carbonation. Non-lingering bi...read more

Crystal State Rockhound

Lost Forty Brewing

American IPA

7.7/10 by scot have another Crystal State Rockhound by Lost Forty Brewing

Pours with a chill haze, no longer allowing a look through the beer. An inch of white foam on top. It crackles as it quickly begins its' decent to oblivion. Some foam hangs out to leave behind some traces on the glass. Aroma is a balance of bread and caramel malts mixed with floral, herbal and hints of citrus, deep in the background. Taste and bread and caramel sweetness up front. Floral, herbal and spicy hop notes begin in the middle, building to the end. The finish allows bitterness, sp...read more

Black Tuna

Pipeworks Brewing Company

American Black Ale

9.4/10 by scot have another Black Tuna by Pipeworks Brewing Company

Pours opaque from the deep black hue of the liquid. No light lightens the edges: pitch black, darker than many stouts. An inch of Frothy, creamy, dark tan foam covers. Retention is awesome. Thick lacing begins immediately. Aroma is orange hops up front. It jumps out of the glass upon the initial pour. Lingers for a long time. Enticing. Slight roast and honey. Both completely riding sidecar to the orange/citrus hops. Taste is bit of honey and roast up front. The middle transitions to ...read more
