Brother Soigné

Grassroots Brewing

Saison

9.4 by scot have another Brother Soigné by Grassroots Brewing

Bottle date: 2018-03-07. Poured aggressively into a tulip glass. Perfectly clear. More than half the glass was filled with pure white foam. Great retention that forms a meringue, leaving behind sporadic but thick lacing. Aroma of lemony citrus. Barnyard funk strengthens as it warms. Taste is great. Lemon citrus that has a nice tart, funky spin. The tartness sticks to the back of tongue. Light mouthfeel but not too thin. Spritzy carbonation that is on the lips. Dries thoroughly. This ...read more

Really Rosie

Right Proper Brewing Company - Shaw Brewpub

Berliner Weisse

9.2 by scot have another Really Rosie by Right Proper Brewing Company - Shaw Brewpub

Bottled on 05-16-18. Pours with a chill haze. A heaped helping of pure white foam covers. Retention is nice. Lacing is spotty. Aroma of tart lacto. Orange and lemon with a touch of hay. Acidity builds as it warms Taste is pleasant with building acidity to the end that almost puckers but lingers. Orange is quick, up front, transitioning away quickly. Lemon builds in the middle becoming a complex acidic finish. Medium body with high carbonation that cuts through the bone dry finish. S...read more

Quakerbridge

Half Acre Beer Company

American Barleywine

8.4 by scot have another Quakerbridge by Half Acre Beer Company

From a 2012 bottle. Pours amazingly clear. An inch of tan, frothy foam covers. Good retention. No lacing. Beautiful in the glass! Aroma is toffee, caramel, and dark fruits: figs and raisins. Deep malts make it a pleasant on the nose. Aging adds complexity and interest. Taste is dark fruit and toffee forward. It finishes with a spicy, alcoholic bite. Medium mouthfeel with nary any carbonation. Almost thin. Dries the palate but not bone dry. This is a solid barleywine. The age doesn...read more

Seasonal Sneak

Cigar City Brewing

Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer

3.8 by scot have another Seasonal Sneak by Cigar City Brewing

I believe this bottle is from my 2016 visit. Pours opaque with a half inch of light tan foam. Retention is average. No lacing. Aroma is something awful. A spiced old shoe?? I can't describe the level of bad! Taste isn't as bad. More of a Christmas spiced and perfumed chocolate. Still really bad. Thin end of medium body. Carbonation, eh. Drain pour. What a God awful beer. They should have be embarrassed to release this beer. Don't Enjoy!...read more

George

Hill Farmstead Brewery

American Brown Ale

9.1 by scot have another George by Hill Farmstead Brewery

From a can without a date. Poured into a tulip. Pours opaque but clear on the edges where the light penetrates. Huge amount of tan foam covers. Average retention but tons of spider web, wispy, but sticky lacing left in the wake. Nutty, caramel and toffee come through first. Sweet sugar, roast, and hints of chocolate and coffee are there as well. Very malt forward. Taste is sweet up front, caramel, before roast, chocolate and coffee. The darker malt profiles take balance out the sweetnes...read more

Deep Space

Half Acre Beer Company

American Imperial IPA

8.4 by scot have another Deep Space by Half Acre Beer Company

From a can with no date. Shared by Rich. Pours clear with an inch of off-white, almost tan foam. Retention is normal but leaves sticky lacing behind. Great looking in the glass. Aroma is a combination of pine and caramel almost toffee. Grapefruit rides shotgun and is a minor player. Taste allows the pine to play with the grapefruit and alcohol in the finish, lingering, creating bitter burn. Sweetness tries to beat back the bitter and alcohol but typically seems to lose. Big body that ho...read more

Galactic Cluster

Cigar City Brewing

American IPA

7.4 by scot have another Galactic Cluster by Cigar City Brewing

Canned 2018-07-18. Pours cloudy with an inch of foam. Short lived retention. Not much lacing what little foam clings mostly cedes back. Aroma of citrus, touches of peach. Clean sweetness. Light resin. Taste falls a bit flat. There is the citrus from the aroma, a burst of sweetness and resin in the middle but not much else. Bright carbonation and medium body. Drying. Interesting beer that is good. Based on the price I would expect more from this beer. It is an average beer. I would ...read more

Blood Orange Gose

Gose

7.0 by scot have another Blood Orange Gose by Atlas Berw Works

Pours crystal clear. With minimal white head that dissipates rather quickly. No lacing, no foam left. Aroma is light. Orange is detectable. Not much else. Light. Taste is light as well. Orange is there but there are only hints of tart and salt. Light body with solid carbonation. Dry. Taste has hints of soap and not enough tart or salt. nothing really wrong with this beer but it is at the light end of the style and comes up short in a few features. Easy to drink and I would have it...read more

Invasion

Cigar City Brewing

American Pale Ale

8.5 by scot have another Invasion by Cigar City Brewing

Date on can: 2018-06-28. Picked up from the brewery on a recent trip to Florida. Can has a new design than the one from a few years ago. Pours slightly cloudy with an inch of small bubbled white foam. Head never receded completely. Thick lacing is thick, sticky and in large rings. Aroma of lemon, grassy, and orange. A slight sweetness is accompanied by hints of earth and spice. Undertones of mango. Taste of orange, lemon, grass and mango hops titillate the palate. Earthy and spice, h...read more

Milkshake Nawi - Mango

Energy City Brewing

American Imperial IPA

9.3 by scot have another Milkshake Nawi - Mango by Energy City Brewing

Gifted to me by Rich. No date on can. Pours cloudy, as it should. Half-inch of small bubble, white foam covers. Recedes nicely, leaving waves of sticky residue behind. Aroma of papaya, mango and pineapple. Fruity sweet. Hints of vanilla. Mango is out of sight big. Taste is a mix of fruity hops: mango, papaya and pineapple. Vanilla enters in the middle, conspicuously. Sharp resinous hops come on in the middle, mixing with a stiff hint on the nose as the glass tips. Medium body, maybe m...read more

Make America Juicy Again

Heretic Brewing Company

American IPA

8.1 by scot have another Make America Juicy Again by Heretic Brewing Company

Poured from a can lacking date. Pours the typical cloudy for the style. An inch of pure white foam covers. As it recedes, which sticks for a while, it become rocky and perilous on top; meringue. Great sticky, yet wispy, lacing. Aroma is pineapple, mango, papaya, and dashes of pine. There is a sweat oak backbone. Taste has some malty sweetness that is balanced with tropical fruit and pine. I want more. Light end of medium body but that might be wishful. Good zip to the carbonation to he...read more
