Meet The Nelsons

Hop Butcher For The World

American IPA - New England (NEIPA)

8.0 by scot have another Meet The Nelsons by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-09-23. Date on can of 2021-09-22. Pours with typical haze for the style. Big, white foam covers leaving webs behind as evidence as it recedes. Aroma is white grapes up front. That wears off with the beer becoming more ripe mango and citrus. As it warms the aroma is becomes more white grape and overripe mango. The citrus is mellow. Taste is sweet up front, giving way to white grape that shadows mango and citrus. There is a green or vegetal flavor...read more

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. Date on can of 2021-08-19. Pours hazy and opaque with a huge white foam. Froths as it slowly never completely recedes. Thick lacing. Aroma is not overly strong but is dank with ripe stone fruit and mango highlights. Slightly sweet. Taste of mango, apricot, peach, and some sweetness on the backend. Light bitterness that fades quickly. Lingering fruits. Touch of heat. Heavy end of medium body. Strong carbonation on the front of the tongue. Juicy. T...read more

Giardiniera

8.2 by scot have another Giardiniera by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-08-12. Date on can of 2021-08-09. Pours cloudy with a solid white foam. Thick, becoming slightly frothy as it recedes. Great retention. Thick lacing from the start. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, and resin. This is exactly what is on the can; they hit the profile on the head. Taste is tropical fruits that give way to a blend of tropical fruits and citrus in the middle that glides through to the finish. Smooth without bitterness. Medium body...read more

Pleasant Dank

Hop Butcher For The World

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

8.3 by scot have another Pleasant Dank by Hop Butcher For The World

Poured from a can purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2021-08-12. Date on can of 2021-08-10. Pours cloudy with a huge white, frothy head to cover. Takes some time to recede, leaving a thin, creamy layer on top which sticks to the sides of the glass close to level. A golden, orange hue. Aroma is dank on the initial vigorous pour. Resin and ripe tropical fruits quickly subdue the huge dank up front, leaving a more all around pleasant scent. Taste follows the late nose: soft tropical fruit ...read more

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

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

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

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
