Monster Cave

Hop Butcher For The World

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

7.5 by scot have another Monster Cave by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. Canned on 08/17/20. Pours cloudy with a nice couple of inches of white head. Retention is good creating a thin but sticky, wispy lacing. Aroma of white grapes and orange. The white grape is really prevalent. Taste is a combination of orange and white grape: closer to a 50-50 split. Hints of banana are there but not consistent. Medium body with light to medium carbonation that sticks on the tip of the tongue. Dry. Nothing wrong with the base beer b...read more

American IPA - New England (NEIPA)

9.2 by scot have another Riwakamania by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. Canned on 08/22/20. Pours cloudy with an inch of white foam. Great retention and thick lacing. Aroma of mango, sweet orange, and green hops that give the idea of ganja. The ganja goes away, thankfully, giving way to just mango and orange. Taste is ripe mango with sweet orange. The sweetness lingers. The green hop profile from the aroma is gone. Cereal grain in the finish. No perceived bitterenss. Medium body with medium carbonation. Juicy, giving wa...read more

Robot Roll Call

Riverlands Brewing Company

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

6.9 by scot have another Robot Roll Call by Riverlands Brewing Company

Purchased from Flight Bottle Shoppe. Date of 08/11/20. Pours cloudy with a couple of inches of white foam. Wispy lacing is left in the wake of the receding foam. A thin, creamy layer of foam coats the top the entire time. Aroma of mango and orange. The mango falls off after a minute as the volatile compounds wear off quickly. The orange is faint. Taste has orange and pine. The pine lingers into the finish, creating bitterness. Not much else going on. Ridiculously light body. Luckily ...read more

Smallcakes: Peanut Butter Skies

Foreign Exchange Brewing Company

American Imperial Porter

9.2 by scot have another Smallcakes: Peanut Butter Skies by Foreign Exchange Brewing Company

Gifted from Matt. No date on can. Pours opaque with almost a finger of mocha foam. Foam quickly retreats. Spotty and sporadic lacing that mostly dissipates. Aroma jumps out of the can and pour. Chocolate is huge; sweet, milk chocolate. Very, very sweet. Some roast but only hinted as is the peanut butter. Taste is a copy of the nose. Big chocolate, sweet milk, roast, and some peanuts round it out. Certain sips give the sense the idea of flavored coffee due to the blend and intensity of...read more

Murky Waters

Riverlands Brewing Company

American IPA - New England (NEIPA)

8.4 by scot have another Murky Waters by Riverlands Brewing Company

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. Date of 08/11/20. Pours cloudy with an inch of white foam that covers. Great retention with the foam thickening as it recedes. Thick, sheeting lacing that mostly sticks in place. Aroma of mango, grapefruit, sweetness, and green hops. Ganja? Taste is mostly the nose without the green hop burn that was in the aroma, which is greatly appreciated. Clean, crisp finish with no bitterness but some hop flavor that lingers. Mouthfeel is towards the lighter side...read more

Coco Van

Hubbard's Cave Brewery

American Imperial Stout

9.0 by scot have another Coco Van by Hubbard's Cave Brewery

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. No date on can. Assumed picked up fresh. Pours opaque. Mocha foam covers but it comes in late on a vigorous pour, quickly becoming a fart in the wind. No lacing. Aroma is huge. Coconut, vanilla, and cocoa. The blend of aromas also give me ideas of fresh American oak. Taste is just as big as the aroma. Vanilla and coconut are foremost. Lingering coconut and vanilla leaves the sense with oily tobacco and brown sugar. This combination really lingers a...read more

Throop

Hop Butcher For The World

Kölsch

7.5 by scot have another Throop by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. Date on can of 08/13/20. Pours with a chill haze. Nice, pure white foam covers. The foam quickly wisps away becoming a thin cover to the liquid beneath. Very sporadic lacing. Aroma is simple and straight forward: lemon and grain. Taste is simple as the nose. Lemon up front into the middle with cereal grain taking over into the finish. Limited perceived bitterness that is accented by lemon. Light body. Spritz carbonation. Extremely dry. Admitti...read more

Aroma has typical lager yeast mingled with cracker and cereal. Slightly sweet. Taste of sweet cereal, cracker, and yeast. Some bitterness with the first couple of sips before it smooths out and finishes crisp. Light body with solid carbonation. Dry. Crisp. Light lingering bitterness. I don't usually...read more

Santa's Cookies & Milk Stout (2019)

Hailstorm Brewing Company

American Imperial Stout

7.8 by scot have another Santa's Cookies & Milk Stout (2019) by Hailstorm Brewing Company

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. Date on can: 11/23/19. Pours opaque with nary any foam. The ring that is there is dark tan and a ring around glass. Sporadic lacing. Aroma is really sweet: lactose, candy, and brown sugar. Graham crackers and vanilla wafer add complexity and more sweetness. Vanilla and sweetness are huge. Not much, if any, bourbon or affiliated scents. Taste ebbs and flows for me between good and too much. Chocolate, roast, vanilla, brown sugar. Late bourbon heat and...read more

4.9 by scot have another Double Hop Jon by Energy City Brewing

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. Date on can of 08/05/20. Pours cloudy with a couple of inches of white foam. Wispy lacing. Above average retention that reminds me of light meringue as it recedes. Aroma is harsh lemon and cat piss to begin, joined quickly by over ripe fruits, reminding me of rotten fruit - apples laying on the orchard ground in October. Taste is sweet lemon and orange that lingers in the finish. It almost bites and is tart. Some bitterness builds, ebbing to the strong ...read more

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. No date on can but purchased the day it was released at the beer store. Pours cloudy with a single finger of white foam; nothing special. Average retention with some simple lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit, dank, a bit of herbal/grass. Not really sweet. Tropical fruits are mango and pineapple. Taste is a bit more adventurous, inviting, and exciting. Coconut, cedar, mango, pineapple, and sweet. No grassy notes. Finishes clean and smooth, only hints of b...read more

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe. Date on can of 07/17/20. Pours cloudy with a several inches of white foam. Foam froths as it becomes rocky, leaving sticky lacing behind. Aroma is straight forward citrus: orange and tangerine, primarily. Initially thought there was hints of grapefruit but couldn't find them later on. Sweet. Taste is citrus again. There is a bitter bite in the finish that could be due to a large amount of late hops. Medium body with medium carbonation. Not creamy or ...read more
