Moored Dirigible

Hop Butcher For The World

American IPA - New England (NEIPA)

8.4 by scot have another Moored Dirigible by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased from Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-10-08. Date on can of 10-06-20. Pours typical cloudy for their IPAs. Pale gold with hints of orange. A vigorous pour doesn't bring that much of foam: wispy, white and light. Good retention, thickening and becoming creamy as it does. Thick lacing. Aroma of pine, tangerine, and orange. Hints of mango. Slight sweetness. Mango becomes more apparent in the taste. Orange and tangerine are a bit slower to shine. Pine goes into the finish creating ...read more

Cold Crunch

Hop Butcher For The World

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

6.7 by scot have another Cold Crunch by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-10-01. Date on can of 09/30/20. Pours cloudy. A half-inch of white foam covers the pale gold/orange liquid. Quickly recedes but leaves very sporadic, non-sticky lacing. Aroma of straight up lemon squares, just like Mom used to make, includes the powder sugar on top. Sweet lemon is up front an thoroughly takes this beer by storm. Taste is bolder than the aroma. The sugary lemon is a swift kick in the teeth with it ebbing towards some type of house...read more

Sailor's Kush

Half Acre Beer Company

American Imperial IPA

8.9 by scot have another Sailor's Kush by Half Acre Beer Company

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-10-10. Date on can of 09/22/20. Pours cloudy with a solid inch of slightly off-white foam to cover. Great retention with the foam creaming the top as it recedes. Lacing is light, sticky and wispy. Aroma of pine, pineapple, papaya resin, mango, orange, and tangerine to name a few. Light sweetness. Taste up front and into the middle is huge helping of mango, papaya, orange, and tangerine; a cornucopia of fruit. The middle brings hints of barley/oat...read more

8.5 by scot have another NvU vs. The Haze by Pipeworks Brewing Company

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-10-01. Date on can of 09/17/20. Pours cloudy. Pale gold to yellow with hints of orange. A vigorous pour brings on a several inches of white foam. Great staying power with wispy, sporadic lacing. Aroma of mango and pineapple. There is some orange behind the other two beasts. Taste has a swell of tropical, mango and pineapple flavors. There is a touch of hop burn in the finish but otherwise finishes clean. No malt flavors. Medium body with mediu...read more

Lager Beer Hall

Hop Butcher For The World

Oktoberfest

7.9 by scot have another Lager Beer Hall by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-10-01. Date on can of 09/30/20. Pours clear with a couple of fingers of pure white foam that doesn't linger long. No lacing. Aroma of floral, spice, lemon, and light barley. Lager yeast. Taste is more of the same. Barley, cracker, and hints of light caramel. Hops come in the middle and linger through the end: floral, lemon, and spice. Light body with medium carbonation. Dry. This is a lager, not a huge fan. Good balance but I don't think I wo...read more

Shaky Shaky - Coffee

Riverlands Brewing Company

American IPA - New England (NEIPA)

9.3 by scot have another Shaky Shaky - Coffee by Riverlands Brewing Company

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-10-01. Date on can 09/11/20. Pours cloudy with a deeper hue than normal for the style of beer but assume that is due to the coffee. A vigorous pour brings on several inches of off white, large bubbled, wispy foam. Retention is solid with meringue type lacing. Aroma of vanilla, milk sugar, and tropical fruit. Coffee is hinted at, having to almost be found. Very pleasant on the nose without being overpowering in any way/facet. Taste of tropical fru...read more

The Jewels

Hop Butcher For The World

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

8.6 by scot have another The Jewels by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-09-24. Date on can of 09-24-2020. Pours the typical cloudy. An inch of white foam covers. Lacing is wispy, thin, sticky, and not lacking in population. Good retention. Aroma of sharp citrus and pine on initial. Overripe, nondescript tropical fruits that bring out the sugars come next and take over. Taste is very interesting. The sharp and bright citrus (orange) is the forerunner. Pine in the middle adds complexity and lingers into the finish to...read more

Fall

Maine Beer Company

American Stout

8.9 by scot have another Fall by Maine Beer Company

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-10-01. Date on bottle: 09/08/20. Pours opaque with a beautiful tan foam. Solid retention. Lacing creates a nice layer of tan foam around the edges. Aroma of roasted coffee jumps out of the bottle upon flipping the crown. It is a roast from the grains, not the coffee. Together they are fantastic. Dark chocolate and burnt caramel enter the fray upon deeper inspection. Taste is a roast, dark caramel (is that toffee? - seems lighter than toffee), d...read more

Grid

Hop Butcher For The World

American Pale Ale

8.0 by scot have another Grid by Hop Butcher For The World

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-09-24. Date on can of 09/22/20. Pours clear (unlike the typical Hop Butcher beer) with an inch of white foam. Retention is a bit below average but it doesn't race away. Sporadic, thin lacing. Aroma is dank with big pineapple up front. The hop aroma seems to subside and lie down quickly, revealing a bread maltiness underneath. Light orange citrus and apricot. Taste has a bready malt backgone. The hops from the aroma are muted in the mouth. The m...read more

Hop Rich

Riverlands Brewing Company

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

8.0 by scot have another Hop Rich by Riverlands Brewing Company

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-09-24. There is a date on the bottom but it is smudge, making it unreadable. Pours cloudy with a beautiful, three fingers of white foam. Clingy lacing that is thick and sporadic. Great retention. Aroma of dank, grass and herbal. There is a definite green hop burn on the nose. Light citrus but hidden behind the grassiness. Taste is similar to the nose but lacks the green hop burn, which is appreciated. Just lacks tropical but hints at citrus. Me...read more

What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Foreign Exchange Brewing Company

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

5.3 by scot have another What Could Possibly Go Wrong? by Foreign Exchange Brewing Company

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-09-17. No date on can. Pours cloudy. A couple of fingers of white foam cover. Average retention. Lacing begins immediately: sticky and thick. Coating. Aroma/Taste - there isn't much going on here in terms of hops...I can't describe my displeasure here well enough. Just stopping. Based on the color I think this may have some oxygenation issues. The hop aroma isn't there either. As much as I like their dark beers I am beginning to wane on anythi...read more

DDH Cloud Street

Phase Three Brewing

American IPA - Imperial New England (INEIPA)

8.1 by scot have another DDH Cloud Street by Phase Three Brewing

Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-09-18. No date. Pours cloudy with a finger of white foam. Foam doesn’t last but there is lacing that is thin but sheeting and sticky. Aroma is mango, mostly, but it isn’t bold. Orange, dank, and slightly herbal. Taste is smooth with a light bitter finish. Mango and orange focus. Medium body that, at times, has a touch of creaminess. Medium carbonation, possibly more. I expect DDH beers to ooze hop aroma and flavors. I didn&rsqu...read more
