Evil Twin Even More Pistachio Coconut Cinnamon Dontcha Know - Rum Barrel Aged 3.2  
Evil Twin Brewing Brooklyn, New York
Draught at Trillium Roslindale, 3/15/18.
Inky, opaque ebony. Tan head fizzles out instantly.
Heavy coconut, alcohol, xmas, and strong pistachio in the nose. Really frustrating to drink Evil Twin beers because there are good brewing fundamentals at work but it's just so much overdone, novel, adjunct.
In mouth it's lightly syrupy and the adjuncts are fine, for the most part, if you just accept that's all there is here. But coconut and pina colada dominate. Not sugary nor any hot booze, at least. Some earthy nutshell. Idk. It's fine. Good acidity and sweet fudge w out the massive sugar.

Timber Creek Fully Loaded IPA 3.4  
Timber Creek Tap and Table Meadville, Pennsylvania
Clear copper pour with a thin white soapy head and light spotted lacing .... aroma of chewy caramel malts, piney hops, grapefruit and orange citrusy flavors ...... taste is of bitter rindy grapefruit, light orange, caramel malts, piney hops and bitter dry hops ..... finish is of bitter dry hops, rindy grapefruit and pine .... sessionable and simple IPA medium to heavy bodied and the bitter dry hops finish lingers for quite a bit

Odell Sherpa Ale 3.3  
Odell Brewing Company Fort Collins, Colorado
On draft at Sherpa's restaurant in Boulder. Poured a medium amber into a pint glass. Average pale ale on the sweeter side with not as much hop presence as I would have liked. It was Ok.

Bouteille de 500 ml. Arômes fruités de bonbons surs, de jujube. Caractère fruité dominant de l’olfactif avec de petits accents de coriandre et de citron. Liquide doré et clair avec mousse crémeuse et persistante. Son fruité se maintient en entrée de bouche. Citron et coriandre en sourdine assurant un soutient aux autres saveurs.
