Old School Hawaii Vibes

Hop Butcher For The World

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

7.5 by scot have another Old School Hawaii Vibes by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-07-15. Date on can of 2021-07-06. Pours cloudy like a NEIPA. Glad glass of pristine white, creamy foam covers on a vigorous pour. Great staying power with meringue peaks developing. Thick, sticky lacing. Aroma jumps out on the pour. A medley of ripe pineapple, vanilla and coconut. As it rests ripe pineapple persists and subtlety woven with coconut. Fantastic. The taste has pineapple up front with coconut and vanilla muddled together in the fini...read more

Mobula

Hop Butcher For The World

American Imperial Stout

8.6 by scot have another Mobula by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-06-10. Date on can of 2021-06-07. Pours opaque with a thick and robust mocha foam that covers. Not much depth but it makes up for it with a creaminess that is beautiful. Once the foam recedes, there is nothing left, unfortunately. The aroma is boastful: chocolate, almonds, and coconut - more of a toasted coconut. Initial aroma is is toasted coconut and chocolate that is so well blended. The almond comes a bit later but amazingly has enough to brin...read more

Scrumdili-Umcious Bar PB&J

Scorched Earth Brewing Company

American Imperial Stout

7.0 by scot have another Scrumdili-Umcious Bar PB&J by Scorched Earth Brewing Company

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-05-20. Not date on can. Picked this up because the can is pretty cool but I am a huge fan of Willy Wonka. This brought back memories of watching that movie on one of the five channels on television back in the day. Simpler times. Pours opaque with a beautiful mocha form to cover. Good retention. No lacing. Aroma is more complex after a few minutes in the glass. Chocolate, peanuts, and strawberries. The strawberries smell like fresh preserves:...read more

Maibock

Dovetail Brewery

Maibok/Heller Bock

7.2 by scot have another Maibock by Dovetail Brewery

Can of Dovetail Maibock purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-06-10. Cannot make out the date on the bottom. Pours with huge pristine white foam that consumes 90% of the glass. Great retention on the foam which becomes rocky and even meringue at times. Lacing begins late: sporadic, thick, and wispy. Mild chill haze. Effervescent. Aroma is subtle. Floral honey, sweet cracker (almost bready at times), with seemingly a fruitiness, and lager yeast. Taste is sweet, light malts: pilsner...read more

Summer Town

Main & Mill Brewing Company

American IPA - New England (NEIPA)

6.0 by scot have another Summer Town by Main & Mill Brewing Company

Purchased at Craft Beer Cellar on 2021-05-29. Date on can of: smudged, but seems to be sometime in late April, 2021. Cloudy with a snow white, billowing head that has great retention. Sticky lacing throughout. Aroma isn't on par with expectations. Citrus is pretty much about all that is perceived. Orange. The taste is under whelming as well. Mostly cracker/bread malts in the finish (reminds me a bit of Maris Otter). Some citrus but really subdued. Light body with a stiff carbonation. ...read more

8.2 by scot have another East Coast Transplant by New Image Brewing

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-05-27. Date on can of 2021-04-22. Recommended by my go to at Flight. Pours cloudy with a huge pure white, billowing foam. Great retention that last for days. Lacing is thin but numerous and sticky. Aroma of orange up front which quickly gives way to ripe tropical fruits: pineapple and mango. Peach and some booze can be found. Light bread malt mingles with pine and citrus (white grapefruit and orange). Very late there is either a hop burn, booze...read more

Anni Ale 13irteen

Short's Brewing Company

American Wild Ale

6.7 by scot have another Anni Ale 13irteen by Short's Brewing Company

I know I could look up how long ago was Short's 13th anniversary but this beer has to be 4 years old. Pours clear with a covering of off-white to light tan foam that covers, in spite fo being a vigorous pour. The foam sprints away leaving retention behind. Aroma of cherry tartness. Not much going on at this point: one dimensional. Taste is subdued up front before tart cherries and tea take over midway, building to the finish leaving a tart/sour bitterness in the mouth that lingers. Hints o...read more

Super Megabite

Hop Butcher For The World

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

9.6 by scot have another Super Megabite by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-05-06. Poured into a stemmed Hop Butcher glass. Date on can of 2021-05-04 with "Freakin' Laser Beams". Pours cloudy with a huge billowing white foam that covers. Long lasting foam that quickly clings to the glass; thick at times. Aroma is initially citrus and ripe fruit with pine lagging behind. A couple of minutes in it switches over to an even blend of citrus, ripe tropical fruit, and pine; the pine almost takes over. Soon, it becomes ...read more

Alsace

Hop Butcher For The World

German Pilsner

6.9 by scot have another Alsace by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-04-01. Date on can of 2021-03-30. Pours crystal clear as a Pilsner should. Pure white loosely packed foam covers. Fleeting. No lacing. Aroma of citrus: lemon and lime. Herbal, probably more weed like, maybe even leather. Some spice. Lager yeast. No grain: cracker or otherwise. Taste has the early lemon that is thwarted by weed in the middle. Giving way to a spice that lingers, possibly a bit more abrupt than a normal Pilsner. Light body, mayb...read more

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-04-01. No date on can. I hope it is fresh. Picked up because I like the can art more than anything. Pours with a chill haze. Huge, billowing, pristine white foam covers. Good retention, leaving wispy lacing behind. Some effervescence. Aroma of lager yeast, herbal, floral, and hints of earthiness. Fits the style. Taste is bread, herbal, spice, and hints of floral. Bigger end of light body with medium carbonation that spritzes the edges of the ...read more

Skipping Rocks

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-03-04. Date on can of 2021-02-17. Pours cloudy with a beautiful white plume of foam. Good retention with lacing reminiscent of a saison. Aroma is citrus forward. More lime than anything for me. Some orange. Taste is very thin. Sweet orange and lime without much fanfare. Very light body that the carbonation doesn't pick up. Dry. Ho-hum. Nothing here that makes this blast off. Thin and single dimension. They make better. I would not have thi...read more

Blanc Smasher

Riverlands Brewing Company

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

5.9 by scot have another Blanc Smasher by Riverlands Brewing Company

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-03-04. No date on can. Pours cloudy with an inch of white foam on top. Great retention. Spider web, sticky lacing begins immediately. Aroma/Taste there isn't much there that is distinct nor makes me believe I am partaking of a beverage that is leaning towards wine. Age? There isn't nothing wrong with the aroma or taste but nothing distinguishes them either. It has the case of the blahs which it transfers to me as well. Medium body, maybe more; s...read more
