Moonfruit

Maplewood Brewery & Distillery

American Imperial IPA

9.1 by scot have another Moonfruit by Maplewood Brewery & Distillery

From a crowler with dated yesterday. Gifted from Owen whom was in town for work. Thank you! Pours opaque. Couple of fingers of slightly off-white foam covers. Retention is fantastic; great staying power. Sticky lacing begins immediately and coats the sides of the glass. Aroma is sensational. Tropical fruit with a hint of floral. Resin. Taste follows the nose but not quite to the same level. Mango, papaya and orange. Big mouthfeel, including creaminess. Low carbonation but there is e...read more

Now & Then

Half Acre Beer Company

American Imperial IPA

8.8 by scot have another Now & Then by Half Acre Beer Company

Date on can 10/21/18. Fresh! Pours with a slight chill haze. An inch of snow white foam covers. Above average retention time. Thick, frothy remnants cover the entire time, creating sticky, sheeting lacing. Tropical fruits abound. Dank resin layers in front of hints of berries. Pine. Sweet but subtle. Dough. Taste is sweet throughout. Hops are inviting. Not as sharp as the aroma. Pine, resin and tropical fruits hit home. Sweetness and resin linger. Light in the mouth. Thin carbon...read more

pseudoSue

Toppling Goliath Brewing Company

American Pale Ale

9.5 by scot have another pseudoSue by Toppling Goliath Brewing Company

Best by 01/26/19. My least favorite type of dating but at least it is dated. A cloudy and opaque pour. An inch of loosely packed white foam tops. Retention is average, leaving behind a slim covering that never retreats. Lacing is sticky. Aroma leaps out of the glass from the initial pour. Citra centric of mango, pineapple, and orange. Sweet bread maltiness. Orange tang. Taste brings on the tropical fruit bowl throughout. Touch of bitterness and resin/dankness near the finish. Sweet, ...read more

Cerveza Sin Frontera

Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

Saison

9.2 by scot have another Cerveza Sin Frontera by Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

From bottle dated December 2014. Red wax on top. Pours clear with an inch of off-white foam; large bubbles. Retention is below average but this style usually hang out a long time, leaving only a ring on the edges. Sporadic, juicy lacing that seeks level. Aroma is funky and sour. No much, if any malt profile. Light barnyard scents waft in late behind the sharp, fizzy sourness. As it warms wine barrel pops up, tinging the nostrils with larger and larger wine character. Lactic acid and fun...read more

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
