Eel River Emerald Triangle IPA 3.5
Bottle, bought @ Havnens Vin og Tobak, Vejle. Pours light murky yellow with a small, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma has grass, light grapefruit, soft cheese. Medium to low carbonation, fine creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour has fairly crisp malts, light doughy, some grass, firm grapefruity bitterness. Rather old-school IPA, but quite drinkable nonetheless.

Eel River Certified Organic Porter 3.6
Keg at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Black with cream head. There is a chocolate character from the start, lightly lactic with a fruity, sultana note alongside. There are fruity, oily hop notes thrown into the mix. Quite easy drinking and smooth. A pretty decent beer.

Eel River 20th Anniversary Bourbon Barrel Aged Triple Exultation 4.7
(En fût à Stout Burger L.A): Le liquide est magnifique avec sa couleur sang/acajou et sa mousse onctueuse et tenace. En bouche une tarte aux pommes et cerises, des houblons épicés et une pâte d’amandes sortie de nulle part atténue la chaleur mordante. La vanilline de barrique enrobe tellement adéquatement. World class.

Jado
Eel River Certified Organic India Pale Ale 3.1
From 385 ml bottle. Honey-Amber body topped off by a creamy lasting white head. Light aromas of sweet malt, orange and pepper. Taste is tropical fruits up front before a firm piney bitterness. Quite a clean finish with a light fruity aftertaste. All the elements seem fine but they don’t really mesh together.

Eel River Triple Exultation 3.6
Bottle, 22oz. 2015 vintage. A murky brown beer, almost flat and headless. Some off-white bubbles though. Heavy malt aroma with prunes, oxidation, some berries and quite evident traces of hops. Toffee, some roasted malts and chocolate, a nice hoppy bitterness, raisins, some prunes and brown sugar. Full body and very smooth on the palate, with little carbonation. Some warmth. Hints of licorice in the finish, as well as all the other goodness found in the initial flavor. An intense beer, but sure nice. 160102

Eel River Gargantua III - 2015 4.4
On tap at the 2015 Portland Holiday Ale fest. This was listed as "Gargantua III, Imperial Barrel Aged Strong Ale" at 12.3% and 80 IBU’s. Colour...deep golden amber with a thin ecru head. Nose...beaming with plums, medjool dates and fig paste, as well as caramel and oaky booze. Palate...viscous, cloying and somewhat dry, with massive waves of toffee infused date paste and Turkish delight. The mid palate reeks of booze and the finish is very long and teems with Christmas cake and sailor Jack.
