BBB63 (6346) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Backlogged rating from bottle and served in my 18th Street snifter: Coppery with a nice frothy head and very good lace. The aroma and taste display a big tropical and moderate citric fruity overtone of melon, strawberry, dragon fruit, and pink grapefruit. Biscuity and caramel malts are found but really here in a support mode. Aggressive and biting mouth feel with a slight chalky finish. Overall this is one the better hop forward brews so far from Drew and the crew. Wished I tried this on tap. I would put this ever so slightly ahead of Sinister and ever so slightly behind Grapefruit Dead.

Yea, all caught up on my 18th Street ratings and this is my 50th

I tried a few of the offerings @ 18th St., but, this one stuck out as the one that was worth the trip. They have such a diverse selection (that is changing all the time), that, i am looking forward to treating my palate to as many of the tasty, superbly crafted brews, as my proletariat funds can afford.

TheAlum (6119) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Sampler pour on tap at the brewery (Gary, IN). Pours a well hazed amber orange hue, darker dulled middle with nice orange amber glow on the edges. Frothy whitish head films well, sticks around well and laces nicely. Aromas are potent and hoppy, throwing firm florals and fruit character, touches of white grape, grapefruit, and melon. Nice mango, touches of florals and bready malts. Some crisp bitter florals, grass and gentle bready and cereal malt beneath. Some vibrant aromas. Initial is fruity, showing tropical fruit, mango and decent bitterness. Nice crisp cereal and bready malt is dry, touch of body with some firm bitterness as we move on. Middle is a touch sweet, but quickly moving to firm bitterness, florals and citrus, big tropical fruit is mango, gentle warmth and decent to middling bitterness as we finish. A potent fruity and complex hop character comes home to roost here, with good tropical fruit, nice flavor, decent to middling bitterness to support without a big or brooding malt body beneath to interfere. Tasty stuff.
