Stone VirtuALE IPA 3.5  
Stone Brewing Escondido, California
Bomber from Trader Joe’s Cupertino. Amber color. Old school IPA with melanoidin malts. Characteristic Stone background flavor...maybe it’s the yeast. Dry finish. High grapefruit hip bitterness. Good, but doesn’t compare well to the sea of great IPAs available today.

Eavesdrop Sunbreaker 3.5  
Eavesdrop Brewery Yorkshire, Virginia
Draft pour at Eavesdrop. Poured a slightly hazy, yellow-orange color with a small white head. Aroma was slightly herbal, light grain, with some orange notes. Flavor was similar - dank hops, floral hops, herbal notes, with some light grain. Interesting.

Loowit Brewing Company Vancouver, Washington

12 ounce bottle. Murky (of course) orange, large foamy off-white head, good retention. Aroma of pine, dandelion, pine, pale malt. Mmkay. Taste is vegetal, green, herbal hops, lime, pale malt. Medium bodied, juicy. Decent.

Minhas Lazy Mutt Gluten Free 1.8  
Valemount 17/7 2018. 33 cl bottle from the Wine Merchant in Jasper. Sleeping dog (or maybe deceased after drinking this beer) printed on the bottle. In a addition biodynamic slogans like “Gluten Free” and “Made with Sorghum”. Pours clear yellow with small white head. Settles as thin, patchy layer of foam. No lacing. Aroma is peculiar and herbal. Quite intense. Strong citric orange, alcohol, toothpaste, paint thinner and hints of ginger. Light carbonation. Thin, watery texture. Flavor is medium sweet followed by stronger harsh, herbal bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter. Lingering. Quite weird tasting beer. Too herbal and unbalanced for my taste buds. I think I miss some Gluten.

Cloudwater DDH Pale Citra 3.5  
Cloudwater Brew Co Manchester, Greater Manchester
Can from Cork & Cask. Murky golden body with a thin white head that fades. Low carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of grass, lemongrass and brioche. Flavour of melon and hay. Thin to medium body with a smooth texture. Soft fizz. Simple and fruity.

Loowit Vandalia Summer Ale 3.7  
Loowit Brewing Company Vancouver, Washington
On tap at the brewery pours crisp golden topped with a white head. Nose is raspberries sweet syrup and some malts. Taste is more of the nice sweet berries and a touch of grass.

The Bruery Golden Orchard 3.6  
The Bruery Placentia, California
Poured from a 2014 vintage, 750 ml bottle. Aroma is fruity with lots of pear and red apple notes. Hints of over ripe stone fruit and a faint peppery note. Light alcohol spice and hints of malt. Pours a fairly clear, gold color with a large, thick, pillowy, white head that recedes steadily to a thin film that lingers. High amounts of lacing and moderate length legs. Flavor is somewhat sweet with medium light to light malt notes of cracker, biscuit and honey. Moderate bitterness and light alcohol notes. Quite a bit of pear and red apple notes with some lighter over ripe fruit notes. Faint phenolics. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low, but present alcohol warmth. Overall, a decent beer but the fruit esters are too strong and skewed towards red apple and pear for my likes. Alcohol is pretty well integrated though.
