12oz picked up at the COOP a few nights ago... Poured into my fancy new Teku... long lasting meringue like head... the brew is pretty clear orange... fantastic lacing. Nose is huge tropical fruitiness... grapefruit zest and melon.. thick and coating hoppiness... smells a bit too malty for my preference, but that is a personal complaint, this has a pretty fantastic aroma. Flavor is mirrors the nose effortlessly... sorta oily.. ABV is present, but not out of whack for the style. Body is medium with a lighter than normal carbonation that makes for a pretty coating mouthfeel.

12oz bottle. It’s kind of lame. Not a lot of flavor or a lot of complexity. Easy to drink but not a lot else going on with this beer though.

Sour aroma with some definite funkiness. Tobacco chew aroma with bubble gum, raisin and leather. Pours a murky brown with lasting yellowish head Some sweet grape juice flavor with tart cherry followed with bready malt and earthy bitterness Light bodied with medium high Co2. Lingering earthy bitterness Interesting brew. The earthiness combined with the sour makes me drink more to try and figure out what I'm tasting. I could have a few of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice Saison aroma of wheat, hay, funky yeast and also some sourness. Clear light gold (not fizzy yellow!) with a light white head. The aroma components come on strong in the flavor with a pronounced sourness that’s nice but a bit heavy. Lemon and honey follow this and smooth it out followed by hay and barnyard. There are also some spices that are actually a bit spicy, but can’t tell what they are specifically. Finishes sweet and dry. As usual, another great beer from Stone and this one’s light and sessionable!

0.65l bottle brought home from Cask Pub & Kitchen. Well it looks really nice in the glass with a light cloudy almost glowing deep golden body. It also has a small to medium sized off-white head with good retention and some nice lacing capabilities. Really enjoy the first inhale on the nose. Reminds me of fruity soap. A ton of lovely hops just rushes in the nose. Lots of piney tones, a strong sticky malt sweetness with old grapefruit, citrus, defrosting strawberries and yeast. Damn, strange thing, the aroma develops for each sniff. Oh my this is sweet! Super almost cloying and sticky as hell. Soft to near flat on the carbonation and it’s just like drinking fruity sugar water almost in the mouth. A ton of defrosted fruity strawberries in the taste also. It’s bitter in a old hoppy way. Yeast, melon and honey syrup finishes it off. Could easily have been a nutty American barley wine this. This is way over the top most likely, and since it’s evolving both in the aroma and in the taste, I’m quite glad I got a chance to try this creation. 18.11.2013

0.65l bottle. It looks really good in the glass this one. Totally black when it has settled and it has this really milkshake dark creamy dense super lacing head that just screams DRINK ME! Love the aroma as well. It’s so deep and roasted, but also super sharp-hoppy and almost hedge like in a way. It has chocolate, vanilla, wood and a little bit of something burned. Just lovely. It’s a bit higher on the carbonation than I had imagined and it’s not hard to feel a heavy thickness in the mouth. Tastes beautiful. It’s light - or a bit more than light burned. Lots of lightdrinkable qualities here also - something I actually wasn’t expecting. It’s not to thick or chewy, just filled with lots of flavor. No doubt that it’s heavy roasted this. Almost some hard burned coffee beans with chocolate cake and a kick-you-in-the-teeth-bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. A wonderful delicious beverage. 04.01.2014

Single from La Trappe ŕ fromage. Pours a clear, real deep amber colour with a foamy light-beige head that floats a while and gives out chunky lace. Huge nose of sweet malts, dark fruits, butterscotch, light alcohol and some spices. The alcohol is very well-hidden in the mouth though. Wet, medium-bodied with a tad of dryness in the finish. Not as sweet in the taste, which is good, saved by the hop which gives it a little bitterness. The fruity malt is balanced all the way with some burnt malt coming in the end. A real nice spiced winter ale and real cheap at $1.99 a bottle.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, orange, slight biscuit, bready notes, hints of yeast, slight brett. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, lime into some spice, yeast, bread, hints of biscuit, finishing slightly dry, oaky, slightly bitter. Decent.

Aroma is yeast, spices, citrus, pine and a hint of earth. The flavor is citrus, earthy notes, toffee, fruit, caramel malts, a hint of hop resin and a dry finish. The best local IPA for me, pretty good.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Opaque, brown-black with a 1 to 2-finger tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, pine, grapefruit, toffee and floral hops. Lots of malt and roastiness with plenty of blended in such that the individual hop aromas tend to blend together. Taste of roasted malt, pine, chocolate, coffee, toffee and grapefruit. Lots roastiness and malt balanced by strong hop flavors. Medium/light body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Opaque black body, thin creamy beige head. Medium to full bodied, drinks really clean and smooth for the style, which tend to be on the booze bomb side of the equation these days. This one however, is really nice. Don’t get me wrong, this is a barrel bomb, huge barrel notes, the whiskey creeps in more every sip, really shining, but balanced by the creamy chocolate notes. Displays a mellow body and refined depth that I find lacking in most extreme beers. Tobacco, licorice, chocolate, leather. Quite tasty and unique.
