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

Invasion

Cigar City Brewing

American Pale Ale

8.9 by rich have another Invasion by Cigar City Brewing

A: Ever so slight haze with a thin, fluffy white head of average retention. S: Citrusy and grassy with a little tropical flair, maybe lemon, orange, and apricot. T: Chalky low tree fruit and citrus that bends to herbal and green. I'd say hop bitterness is low-moderate. The malt is very low sweetness and grainy plus biscuit. Body is soft, with moderate carbonation. O:Solid pale ale from Cigar City Brewing. In line style from a highly competent brewery. Fresh tropical and citrus hops combined w...read more

Conduct of Life

Hill Farmstead Brewery

American Pale Ale

9.2 by rich have another Conduct of Life by Hill Farmstead Brewery

A: Straw color and hazy. Thin white carbonation of medium to small bubbly foam. S: Mostly citrus and fruity with lower notes of floral and faint pine. T: First taste was equal mix of herbal, citrus, and woodiness. Most pronounced characteristic is the utter lack of sweet and veers to dry. I first thought a touch of nuts in the toast tasting malt. No alcohol and the hop bitterness is moderate. O: This is a sophisticated 'new' Amer. Pale Ale without any theatrics. Nose is bigger than taste, and...read more

110k+ OT Batch #6

Cigar City Brewing

American Imperial Stout

9.4 by scot have another 110k+ OT Batch #6 by Cigar City Brewing

Shared. Pours with a huge mocha foam. Thick; frothing and becoming rocky as it recedes. Thick lacing throughout. Pretty in the glass. Aroma of raspberries, chocolate and a sweet side. There are hints of oak. I don't know port but assume this could be the chocolate sweetness that exists. Aroma of raspberry and chocolate are prevalent. Once again, sweetness, dark fruit sweet without the dark fruit. Some oak. Thick body, huge. Light carbonation but the beer carries. Creamy and rich. T...read more

The Wanderer

The Bruery

American Wild Ale

9.6 by scot have another The Wanderer by The Bruery

Pours with a nice foam that has typical fleeting head of a sour. Aroma is simple but deeper wafts quickly show off complexity. Tart berry, oak, bourbon, and acidic. Taste follows the nose. Berry acidic tartness with oak and bourbon. Light body with a spritzy carbonation. Somewhat dry. This is an amazing offering. The blend of sour, bourbon and oak is fantastic: each is pleasantly balanced. My only regret is not getting the bigger bottle. Enjoy!...read more

Conduct of Life

Hill Farmstead Brewery

American Pale Ale

9.4 by scot have another Conduct of Life by Hill Farmstead Brewery

Canned on 6/25/2018. Pours cloudy. An inch of white foam. Retention isn't fantastic, neither is lacing but there is some sporadic lacing. Aroma of citrus (grapefruit), sweet and light bread. Grass, minimalistic tea and grapefruit. Taste of sweet and cracker. The hops are more floral and grass. Tea mixes. Grapefruit in the finish that lingers, creating a touch of bitterness. Light body with medium carbonation. Drying. This is a great offering. Light but in a well balanced way. Easy ...read more

Holy Cow

Alchemy Brewing

American IPA

8.9 by scot have another Holy Cow by Alchemy Brewing

From a can without a date. Assuming in the three to four week range. Pours cloudy with a large bubbled inch of pure white foam that covers. Average retention. Lacing begins immediately but is sporadic, almost wispy. Glows in the glass. Aroma is hop forward but a bit light. I get citrus: orange and grapefruit. Touch of pine and sweetness. Needs more oomph. Taste is more forward than the aroma but no where near taking over. Grapefruit, honey dew and pine. The pine lingers a bit leaving ...read more

Hellbrook

Alchemy Brewing

American Amber Ale

8.2 by scot have another Hellbrook by Alchemy Brewing

From a can with no date. Assume about three week old. Pours clear. A finger of light tan foam covers. Average retention. Lacing is above average Aroma is malty. Caramel, possibly toffee, bread, and hints of dark malts. Taste is more of the same. Maris Otter could be the base malt of choice as there is a nutty center. Caramel, toast and hints of dehusked dark malt. Medium body and above average carbonation. There is some residual bitterness. Dry. Well put together beer. A bit mor...read more

Alena

Alchemy Brewing

American IPA

9.6 by scot have another Alena by Alchemy Brewing

From a can with no date. Assume about three week old. Pours with a slight chill haze but closer to clear than cloudy. A full finger of pure white foam quickly dissipates. Some lacing, at best. Aroma forward on the stone and tropical fruit. Mango, papaya, peach and apricot. Some sweetness. Taste is bit sweet: honey. Fruity hops prevail but enough sweetness to travel the entire throughout. Plenty of fruits with a dank twist. Medium body with ample carbonation that sits deep in the throa...read more

Focal Banger

Alchemy Brewing

American IPA

9.5 by scot have another Focal Banger by Alchemy Brewing

From can with no date. Suspect less than three weeks old. Pours cloudy. An inch of slightly off-white foam creates a wonderful topping. Nice retention. Sporadic lacing. Aroma has the typical sweetness that comes with the style. Mango, papaya, and a splash of pine. Solid earth side to the hops as well. Mosaic typically gives me that in the nose. Taste follows the nose but a bit on the dominant hop side. Sweetness lends a hand for backbone. Tropical fruit, pine and resins hold through,...read more

Research Series: Double IPA

Frost Beer Works

American Imperial IPA

8.9 by scot have another Research Series: Double IPA by Frost Beer Works

Bottom of can: Late Bloomer, 06/06/18 @10:39. Pours cloudy. More than a finger of white foam. The top froths up as it recedes. Sticky and thick. Good retention. Aroma of peaches, apricots and similar stone fruits. Tropical fruits: mango and papaya. Underlying sweetness. Dank. Orange, makes me think marmalade. Taste isn't as good as the nose but it is still solid. Void up front, possible sweet. Quickly builds to be juicy hops: peaches, mango, orange and papaya. Minimal bitterness. M...read more

Crusher

Alchemy Brewing

American Imperial IPA

8.5 by scot have another Crusher by Alchemy Brewing

Pours cloudy. Heaps of white, frothy foam cover. Big bubbles lie below the frothy cap. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, and dank grassiness. Light sweetness. No malt profile to be found - malt neutral. Taste is once again malt neutral. Grapefruit throughout. Pine, grass and dank. Finishes more bitter than expected. Big grapefruit there to push that bitterness. Medium body. Quite the carbonation - medium-high. Juicy on the lips but finishes dry. Could this can been a bit older than expect...read more
