Hoppy Thursday

Hop Butcher For The World

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

7.6 by scot have another Hoppy Thursday by Hop Butcher For The World

Poured from a can purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. Date on can of 2022-09-27. Pours the typical opaque for the style. A vigorous pour into my Pliny the Elder glass brought about a huge amount or large bubbled foam. Sporadicly thick lacing left in the wake as the top becomes frothy, almost creamy. Aroma is ripe berries surrounded by orange citrus. Pretty straight forward but that doesn't take away from the overall aroma. Taste is a bit thin. The hops aren't that strong while the young b...read more

Jjjuliusss

Tree House Brewing Company

American IPA - New England (NEIPA)

8.4 by rich have another Jjjuliusss by Tree House Brewing Company

Canning date:08/01/22 A: Hazed Pale Amber. Pours as a thick brew. Basically, typical look of a hazy IPA. S: Tropical aroma abounds. Most obvious flavor is orange among the exotic tree fruits. Solid smells. T: Definitely tasty and matches the aroma. O: Well-rounded and easy to drink even with the crazy big hop fruit-load. My only knock is a very small amount of malt forwardness. I think this recipe is a variation of Julius, which I personally find slightly more appealing....read more

Julius

Tree House Brewing Company

American India Pale Ale

8.9 by rich have another Julius by Tree House Brewing Company

Canning date:08/01/22 A: Hazed Pale Amber. No floaters, just misty hazy that blocks view across the glass. Small soft white bubbles, of average retention time. Typical look of a good hazy beer. S: First impression is of a citrus orchard. The citrus aroma is definitely of oranges. Then a mash up of tropical flavors. And a light sweet grass note. The smell invites a taste. T: Full tasty mouthfeel and citrus fruit blast. Great balance of hops and malts. Very low bitterness on the back end. Very ...read more

Jjjuliusss

Tree House Brewing Company

American IPA - New England (NEIPA)

8.4 by scot have another Jjjuliusss by Tree House Brewing Company

Purchased at Treehouse Brewery while on a recent family vacation. Date on can of 2020-07-25. Might be a touch past perfect primeness. Pours cloudy with an inch of slightly off-white, tightly packed and frothy foam. Retention is fantastic leaving waves of thick foam coating the glass from the get go. Foam never leaves the liquid top. Aroma is complex: mango, sweet, orange, guava, and hints of resin on the edges. Taste is a minor let down from the aroma. Flavors are there but more muted. ...read more

Very Hazy

Tree House Brewing Company

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

9.3 by scot have another Very Hazy by Tree House Brewing Company

Purchased at the brewery earlier this month while on vacation. Date on can of 2020-08-03. Pours about as cloudy as a NEIPA can get. Pure white foam covers, receding quickly, leaving a thin foam on top and the edges of the glass. Aroma is amazing: peach, orange, and a background of tropical fruits. Sweet. The hop aroma is in the order listed. Taste follows the nose. Peach and orange play a wonderful tune, eventually joined by the background singers of tropical fruit and sweetness. Mildly...read more

Hoppy Day IPA

Rock Art Brewery

American IPA - New England (NEIPA)

6.4 by scot have another Hoppy Day IPA by Rock Art Brewery

Purchased at Rock Art brewery on recent family visit to the North East. No date on can. Based on the pour and the fact that other sites state this beer is a NEIPA, might be on the older side. Pours more with a chill haze than the opaqueness of a NEIPA. Less than a single finger of pure white foam covers. Thick, sheeting lacing. Aroma is citrus grapefruit, pine, with hints of overripe tropical fruits, pear, and herbal. Slightly sweet. Taste lacks the sweetness from the aroma. The grapefru...read more

Dance Party

Rock Art Brewery

American IPA - New England (NEIPA)

5.8 by scot have another Dance Party by Rock Art Brewery

Purchased at the brewery approximately two week ago. Date on can of 2020-06-10. The site says this is a NEIPA. That fact and the combination of the canning date scares me a bit. Let's see if that is warranted. Pours opaque to mildly cloudy. Thickly pack, pure white foam covers. Quality retention with thick, sheeting lacing. Aroma of mild pine and grapefruit. Hints, maybe hints, of mango. There is a herbalness there as well. Possibly the remnants of past greater aromas. Taste is mildl...read more

Limited Access

Rock Art Brewery

Imperial/Double India Pale Ale

7.3 by scot have another Limited Access by Rock Art Brewery

Purchased at the brewery on the way to The Alchemist approximately two weeks ago. No date on can. Pours with a slight chill haze, otherwise clear. An inch or more of frothy, thick and white foam covers. Good retention. Lacing begins as it recedes, hanging the drapes as it does so. Aroma is citrus forward up front with hints of pine. As the beer warms light tropical fruits come through with a bit of sweetness. Somewhat green/herbal. Taste is a bit thin as there isn't much going on. Ther...read more

Coffee Bear

Hop Butcher For The World

American Imperial Stout

7.1 by scot have another Coffee Bear by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottles Shoppe earlier this year. Date on can of 01-04-22. Pours opaque with finger of beautiful mocha foam that covers. Unfortunately not long lasting nor does it leave any to cover. No lacing. I am sure the oils from the peanut butter directly correlate. Aroma is sweet chocolate, peanut butter, and hints of coffee. Brown sugar sense. Taste is sweet chocolate and peanut butter. Some harshness on the back of the throat. Big body with light carbonation. I am not a ...read more

The Caddagh

Phase Three Brewing

Irish Dry Stout

8.1 by scot have another The Caddagh by Phase Three Brewing

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2022-04-15. It has an "enjoy by" date, which I hate, but it smudged, so I can't read it. Pours a beautiful dark brown opaque with a huge mocha foam that covers. Good retention, nary any lacing. Aroma is complex: cream, roast, cocoa, earth, and burnt ashiness. Lovely aroma for such a low abv beer. Taste doesn't stray far from the nose. Starts mild and build throughout with a stiff bitterness from the hops, roast, and brunt ashiness. Roastines...read more

The Swans of Lir

Hop Butcher For The World

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

3.1 by scot have another The Swans of Lir by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Iron & Glass Romeoville on 2022-03-18. Date on can of 2022-03-14. The beer pours piss green, piss yellow. Not inviting. Due to the color of the beer the large bubbles foam was the same nasty color. No lacing but not a hand washed glass. Retention was okay. Aroma - I never really even waffed this beverage. I was so turned off by the color and, more to come, the taste. Taste is about as good as it looks. Vanilla, sewage, sweet. Light mint in the finish. Some tropical fruit a...read more

Neon River

Riverlands Brewing Company

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

7.6 by scot have another Neon River by Riverlands Brewing Company

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2022-03-03. Unfortunately no date on can. Pours cloudy with little foam but it is creamy, thick and white. For the slight amount of foam the retention is amazing. Thick lacing that leaves behind upside down frowns back to level. Pale gold with hints of orange. Aroma is actually slight. Maybe it was the glass that limited the sense from quaffing this fine drink. Fresh oranges and grapefruit pith. Taste has a touch of sweet, malt character that blends ...read more
