Mudshark Brewing Company Reviews

Mudshark Hop Cop 4.3
32oz growler, filled at Craft 64, pours with a crystal clear deep gold body that supports a near white head of foam. The aroma offers up a blend of tangelo, light pineapple, spicy onion and some mango. OK, this is going well. Alright, the taste follows suit as I get a bitter and juicy blend of tangelo, pineapple and mango running up against spicy bitter onion like earthy hoppiness. It gets a little softer to midway as a modest sweet malt base lets you know itís there and itís providing solid footing for this hop bill. Damn. This is just solid. Into the finish I get an occasional flash of mint and faint hints of earthy tea too. Solid crushable IPA where the beer is pretty crisp and the body is on the sessionable light side. Taste and feels a little like Sculpin. I hope to get more fresh growlers of this as the temps exceed 110F as this will be a terrific hot weather brew. Solid!!

Mudshark Havablue Wheat Beer 2
Well I didnít like this at all. Itís pretty wheat heavy and certainly has some blueberry but its just a style of beer that I am not a fan of

12oz can 5/14/15 (Total Beverage-TUS Park Place)-Pours a cloudy off white with a decent sized white head. Aroma of coriander, yeast, bubblegum, and spices. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew was not bad as it filled the spot on a hot Arizona day.

Mudshark Desert Magic IPA 2.9
Meh. Pretty standard or below IPA (though as this establishment had weak hoppy offerings it may not have been wholly fresh). Bitter spice and pine, malty. just ok.

Mudshark Wild Watermelon 2.5
Ok as a novelty, as the jolly rancher aroma and flavor are not unpleasant, but at the end of the day, just a thin watery wheat beer with a cool twist.

Can. Has its place as a lawn mower beer, especially in hot arse Arizona, but really nothin to see here. Light as hell. Non offensive and generic.

So so for a Berliner. Wheat forward aroma but not very interesting. Taste is better, nicely tart and lemony, not really getting much cherry.

Light sweet malty aroma. some light spices, sweet citrus. Taste is decent but not as enjoyable as aroma. A little too bitter, sweet, malty, rough to me. But a decent beer overall for sure

12 oz can.
Hazy pale yellow with a short lived frothy head, no lace. Light sweet watermelon aroma. Flavor is same. Light sweet watermelon flavor, slightly tart on the finish. Much better than the other local watermelon beer, that was undrinkable. Not my thing, but my wife liked it.

Mudshark Vanilla Caramel Porter 3.3
Best one Iíve had from this brewery, which otherwise is average (based on the white and the IPA). Very nice aroma of strong vanilla and porter. Decent flavor too, strong vanilla and caramel. Canít decide if flavor is artificial or not, but Iíd drink this again. Sweet.

Mudshark Desert Magic IPA 2.9
[Bottle] Copper colored pour with a small cap of foamy white head on top. Floral and grassy hops in the nose. Sweet English malts, light pine needles, toffee and dry cereal grains in the flavor. Dry and resinous finish. Rather thin in body. Not too bad... must be the ícrisp desert waterí from the description. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

Mudshark Desert Magic IPA 3.8
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a smallish off-white head on there. Nose is quite hoppy, with some grapefruit notes being really forward and just a bit of resin underneath. Taste is light and bitter, moderately so, and makes for a pretty easy drink. I canít complain about this.

Black. Fair beige head. Aroma is dry cocoa, light roast. Chocolate comes up after significantly warming. Bigger light body, initially then thickens up some at room temp. Watery Initially. Moderate roasty. Semi-sweet. Dry. Lightly burnt. Again chocolate only shows up after sitting quite a while. Alcohol hidden well. Couldnít really find any mint. O.K.

Mudshark Abominable Winter Ale 3.2
Fairly carbonated, but quick drying. sweet, but not too much chocolate flavor, though white chocolate is always more mild. Donít get the mint much, unless Iím forcing myself to taste it. Decent, but nothing crazy amazing.

Mudshark Scorpion Amber Ale 3.2
Amber with a small frothy beige head. Caramel. Bread crust. Earth. Dry. Currently listed here as a Pale Ale??? Must be a mistake as this is clearly an Amber. As an amber, Iíve had much much worse. Better than the typical amber.

Mudshark Desert Magic IPA 2.6
Bottle. Golden orange, little to no head. A bit bready and malty, I donít get much of a hop character at all. Not necessarily a badly made beer, just drinks more like a fest than an IPA. (#5910, 12/31/2014)
