Oneida

Modern Times Beer

American Pale Ale

7.7 by scot have another Oneida by Modern Times Beer

Canned on 06/24/17. A vigorous pour yields two fingers of white, tightly packed, small bubbled foam. Frothing on top as it recedes, the foam has quality staying power. Lacing begins immediately, throughout, and is spider web in appearance. Chill haze is present. Aroma of toasted bread with light sweetness. Orange, must grape, pithy citrus, grass, and floral. I wouldn't consider this huge on the nose but it is pleasant. Taste is a mix of hops and malt. Malt is once again, lightly, toaste...read more

Pogue's Run Porter

Flat 12 Bierwerks

American Porter

6.9 by scot have another Pogue's Run Porter by Flat 12 Bierwerks

Pour yields an inch of tan foam that looks creamy. Foam recedes rather quickly, leaving behind sporadic but sticky lacing. Aroma of toasted bread, roast and chocolate. Roast is the strongest. Taste is more one dimensional that the nose. The roast is big. Not much else going on. The roast and bitterness remain. Light body with good carbonation for the style, adding a bit body. Body is a bit light for the style. Was expecting some creaminess based on the initial foam. The aroma and look...read more

Cucumber Kölsch

Flat 12 Bierwerks

Kölsch

7.7 by scot have another Cucumber Kölsch by Flat 12 Bierwerks

Pours clear with hints of a chill haze. An inch of white foam covers. Average retention, possibly better. Lacing was thick, with 90%+ receding back to liquid height while the rest left nice remnants. Aroma is light. Subtle sweetness and cucumber abound at said level. Earthiness. Taste is up-front cucumber. From start to finish. Earthiness is heightened as well. Sweetness is once again subtle. Light body. Carbonation was stiff. Crisp. A nice beer. It is a kolsch with cucumber, i...read more

Axis: Bold as Beer

Werk Force Brewing Company

American Brown Ale

7.3 by scot have another Axis: Bold as Beer by Werk Force Brewing Company

Pours clear albeit quit dark. Huge amounts of tan foam: 70% of the glass or more; makes me think infection. Retention is average for the amount of foam, frothing up as it goes. Nice lacing. Aroma makes me think of cola. Light coffee but the cola beats it down. Hints of sweetness and smoke. Taste of toffee, caramel with hints of smoke and coffee. Medium body with a big carbonation (too much). Dry finish. I expected this beer to be more coffee forward. Instead, it is a solid brown ale...read more

Hop Pun

Black Acre Brewing Company

American Imperial IPA

8.8 by scot have another Hop Pun by Black Acre Brewing Company

Pours with a finger of pure white foam. Minimal retention and, at best, likewise lacing. Mostly clear with a tinge of chill haze. Aroma of overripe fruit (not a bad thing, just creates a more intense experience). Pine and resin. Definitely has a sweet side, assuming form the malt and overripe fruit from the hops. At different times the three notes lent by the hops each take the lead. Taste is sweet up front. Maltiness in near the finish of biscuit and bread. The hops swoop in quickly: p...read more

M-43 N.E. IPA

Old Nation Brewing Company

American IPA

9.4 by scot have another M-43 N.E. IPA by Old Nation Brewing Company

Pours cloudy as can be; no light penetrates. Minimal white foam covers. Retention follows. Surprisingly, no lacing. Aroma has that Citra twang without being overbearing on the Citra side. Mango is most prevalent. Pineapple, grapefruit and a touch of pine round out the nose. Taste is a bit sweet throughout. Has a tropical mango. Sounds redundant but mango usually is more earthy to me. Pineapple clenches the side of the tongue. Minimal bitterness. Lingering pine and pineapple. Pleasant...read more

Spruce Tip IPA

Goodwood Brewing Company

American IPA

6.3 by scot have another Spruce Tip IPA by Goodwood Brewing Company

From a canned with date 06/07/17. Pours clear with a couple of fingers of pure white, frothy foam. Great retention with heaps of sticky lacing. Aroma has mild malt sweetness. Herbal, light citrus and a sense of grass share the nose. Sweet up front, giving way to citrus and herbal notes which turn bitter quickly. Grapefruit and the herbal are strong in the finish, lending to the bitterness. Medium body, at best. Dry, bitter finish. Carbonation is big for the style. The carbonation is bi...read more

Saucy Intruder Rye IPA

Black Acre Brewing Company

American IPA

8.6 by scot have another Saucy Intruder Rye IPA by Black Acre Brewing Company

Picked up from the brewery on 2017-07-08. Pours clear with an inch of frothy, off-white foam. Retention is outstanding. The top becomes rocky with popped pockets of bubbles indenting on the thick crop. Lacing is immediate, throughout, and creates rings. Aroma is pineapple, pine, orange and herbal, possibly grass. That "typical" rye comes through in the nose as well. Pleasant and not over powering. Sweet up front with a dash of rye that lasts. Lasting bitterness. The hops take...read more

Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA

New Belgium Brewing Company

American Imperial IPA

8.4 by scot have another Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA by New Belgium Brewing Company

Friended to me by a neighbor whom is just starting to get into IPAs. This one didn't agree with him. Pours clear with a half inch of white as snow foam. Retention is average or better. Lacing is immediate. Aroma of pine is up front and strong. Citrus (grapefruit), grass, and herbal notes partake as well. Cracker and bread are lent by the malt. Taste is sweet up front, some of which lingers in the finish. Bitterness is brought on quickly in the end, somewhat stiff, growing. Grapefruit,...read more

Nighty Night

Lost Forty Brewing

American Imperial Stout

8.6 by scot have another Nighty Night by Lost Forty Brewing

Pours opaque. Half-inch of deep tan foam covers. Fleeting. Nary a trace in 30 seconds. No lacing. Aroma has nice roundness and complexity. Leather, tobacco, brown sugar, and chocolate. The aging brings bourbon, oak and some char. The brown sugar is possibly the strongest note but is offset but by the dark malts and other barrel notes. Taste has a big hit of brown sugar, late, which lingers. Otherwise chocolate, tobacco, oak, bourbon and char mingle, coexisting through out. The transit...read more

Eclipse - Evan Williams 2013

Fifty Fifty Brewing Company

American Imperial Stout

8.2 by scot have another Eclipse - Evan Williams 2013 by Fifty Fifty Brewing Company

Shared with the wife. Pours opaque with a thin mocha foam. Foams fade quickly without any lacing. Aroma of caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Hints of smoke, alcohol, bourbon, and oak. Taste is much like the nose. Unfortunately nothing stands out quite as much when they are fresher. Big body with light end of carbonation. Dries but leaves the lips sugar sticky. This is a solid beer. I think the life has started to fade a bit. Two to three years seems to be the sweet spot for these. ...read more

Lake Effect Double IPA

Boatyard Brewing Co.

American Imperial IPA

4.6 by scot have another Lake Effect Double IPA by Boatyard Brewing Co.

Can bottom mark: Canned on 04.13.17. Pours clear with an inch of white foam. Large bubbles meander themselves down slowly. Lacing is spotty but thick. Aroma is spice with an enormous herbal backbone. Light sweetness. Reminds me more of saison yeast in the aroma. The saison ideas float through to the taste. More herbal and spice but not much nice. The mouth is medium but the carbonation is a bit too much for me. Dries a bit. First beer from Boatyard, given to me by a coworker of my wif...read more
