Big Storm Tropic Pressure Florida Ale
Ever so slightly hazy and pink coloured body with a bronze and copper glowing tint and a large, four to five centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of bright and pungent hibiscus flowers with some light malts and nuts, but way more of the flowers and even some guava and tropical fruits are noticeable in the nose. Light-bodied; Strong hibiscus and floral flavour with a heavy bite of dry, funky malts that show a a lot of grass and herbal notes as well with some bitterness, mainly from the malt and off-flavours than from any hops. Aftertaste shows a lot of the hibiscus flowers which give a slight soured and tart flavour with a dry bite with grass and herbal notes and a bit of the malted barley flavour powers through everything and leaves this dry and quite a bit funky. Overall, a nice and dry, funky ale with some noticeable hibiscus notes and a herbal quality that does show a little bit of fruity sweetness, especially a the end. I sampled this sixteen ounce, pint-sized can, purchased from the Marina Store at Flamingo Beach, Everglades National Park, Florida on 27-December-2020 for US$2,25 sampled in my hotel room here in Sanibel, Florida on 28-December-2020.

Big Storm Huracán Rum Maple Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout (2019)
Belgian-style bomber with a nice label. Jacobean brown-black, opaque. Head is late forming, and deep chocolate mousse tan. Aroma is menacing, but also delicious - cocoa, peat, oaky, lots of raisin/date/pruney goodness with a vaporous alcohol tone. Sweet. The flavor echoes the aroma - booze, dark fruit, fruitcake, brown sugar. Coffee in the finish, along with bakers' chocolate. Crude brown sugar - turbinado, oscura pilloncillo tones come through at the end. Very solid - a big beer and you'll want to share your bomber, otherwise it might get to be a bit much. Picked this up at the Clearwater/Pinellas brewery location. Enjoyed during the Coronavirus Zombie Apocalypse of 2020, in quarantine.

Pretty good, but maybe a little bit heavy. Was expecting more hop taste, just a bit of spicy hop, but the hoppy aroma came through good and strong.. Very drinkable, corn malt flavor

Big Storm BroMosa Tangerine IPA
16 oz can. Pours a lightly hazy golden color and capped by a thin off white layer of foam that settles in slowly to a thin film and leaves streaks of lace around the glass. The aroma shows notes of tangerine and grapefruit juice over a pale malt base with notes of champagne yeast. The flavor follows with the juicy tangerine and grapefruit right up front and backed up by the pale malts and a soft hop bitterness on the back end. Light bodied and with ample carbonation that leads a lightly bitter sweet and juicy tangerine finish. Pretty thin for the style and good carbonation but not nearly as dry and effervescent as I was expecting. Decent enough flavor that falls off quick though. Interesting to try.

Keg at Man in The Moon, Stockholm. Clear pale golden, small head. Aroma of wet paper. Mid sweet with light body and clean mouthfeel. Rice and spicy pears. Spicy bitter finish. Well, a step up from Corona, but the sharpness works against it.

Big Storm Blueberry Lemon Torte Ale
Took kids to the lovely a southern hills farm to pick out pumpkins and they had this brew made with their blueberries so couldn’t resist. So as much as I wanted 5k to be special this was a lovely day so no regrets. Nose is fresh blueberry and lemon. Tastes of a blueberry desert, lemons, wheat, grass. Not sweet. Everyone at the farm was enjoying which is what beers about.
