Newport Storm India Point Ale 3.0  
Coastal Extreme Brewing Company Newport, Rhode Island
Can @ Anthony’s, Newport. Hazy amber pour with a small head. Candied orange peel and caramel malt on the nose. Drinks fairly sweet. Caramel-slathered brioche. Piney hop accents. Light citrus. Mild bitterness. Bright carb keeps things from feeling overly flabby. OK.

Riip Jetty Water 3.6  
Riip Beer Company Huntington Beach, California
Part of a sampler at the taproom totaling 7 on a random drive by driving from SF to SD. A great stop, especially when combined with the awesome Mexican food two doors down. Solid cracker malt leads to a well rounded beer.

Stillwater The Cloud 3.6  
Stillwater Artisanal Baltimore, Maryland
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a super lemony and citrus hop. This is like over the top lemon. Flavor is a little less lemon but it’s still there. I also don’t get a creamy mouth feel from the oats or lactose but this does have a nice bitter citrus hops finish. This was a solid IPA. Plenty of hop flavor just not a lot of the other additions showed up.

Balduin Enigma Ale 3.0  
Balduin Ales Hamburg, Hamburg
On tap @ Alles Elbe, HH. Slightly watery beginning, smooth with floral hints. Very light but dry body, refreshing smooth, mild floral fruity aftertaste. Nice.

Side Project Reflections 3.7  
Side Project Brewing Maplewood, Missouri
375 ml bottle to stemmed glass at the brewery (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a fairly transparent gold with white head that steadily dissipates into bubbly lacing. Smells good too; tart, funky, and oaky with notes of lemon and soft yeast. Tastes like it smells, but less robust. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium-bodied, mildly tart, soft, and semi-dry. Good, but smells better than it tastes.

Hill Farmstead Farmer Wave 3.8  
Hill Farmstead Brewery Greensboro, Vermont
Sampled @ The Tenth Official Danish Ratebeer Summer Gathering 2017, Day 2.
A murky bright yellow beer with a mid-sized most good lasting white head. Aroma of lime, zest, wheat, green tea, herbal fruits. Taste of tart lemon, zest, some ginger, wheat, nice!

Bombshell Spell Caster Black Ale 3.7  
Bombshell Beer Company Holly Springs, North Carolina
12 oz. no canning date evident. Pours deep brow-black with a lasting ring and islands of foam. Noses of dark chocolate, toasted walnut, bread and a bit of espresso. Flavors of dark chocolate, dark toasted bread, cocoa and a touch of sour cream. Toasted nut in the finish. Light-medium bodied with mostly smooth, medium fizz and a drinkable, delicate balance.

Riip Tastee Waves 3.4  
Riip Beer Company Huntington Beach, California
Part of a sampler totaling 7 on a random drive by driving from SF to SD. A great stop, especially when combined with the awesome Mexican food two doors down. This was bitter and dank.

Mobberley Elysium 3.2  
Mobberley Mobberley, Cheshire
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, orange, some melon, slight biscuity malts and subtle tangy hops. Taste of tangy lemon, orange, melon, some passionfruit, slight biscuity malts and subtle spicy hops. Light to medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A nice, light, citrusy Session IPA with a biscuity malt balance.

Hill Farmstead Farmer Wave 3.7  
Hill Farmstead Brewery Greensboro, Vermont
Bottle "2017". Unclear yellow with small white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, yeast, lemon, hop and spices. Flavour is malt, fruit, yeast, spices, notes of brett, little sweet, lemon, citric and a little dry.

Evil Twin Molotov Cocktail 2.5  
Evil Twin Brewing Brooklyn, New York
Grainy, fruity and mildly citrusy aroma. Malt and booze and little else in the taste. You know what this reminds me of? That high vol. Faxe beer. And that’s not a good thing.

Hill Farmstead Farmer Wave 3.8  
Hill Farmstead Brewery Greensboro, Vermont
Hazy yellow with white head. Aroma of citrus, peel, lactic, light vinegar. light sweet and heavy sour; zesty. Medium and juicy

Ale Mania Coffee Milk Stout (5.8%) 3.7  
Ale Mania (Fritz Ale) Bonn, North Rhine-Westphalia
Flesje op 17-8 gedeeld door Benzai en Kermis. Diep donkerbruin bier. Aroma van koffie, hooi, hout en pruimen. Smaak van koffie, chocolade. Een beetje zoet en rokerig. Weinig nasmaak.

Bar Hop Miracle Cure 2.2  
Bar Hop Brewco Toronto, Ontario
Draft at the brewery. The body is hazy yellow with a small white head. The aroma has strong citrus. The taste is grass and quite boring overall.

Hop Freshener Series: Citrus & Piney 3.5  
From bottle to glass. One of my least favorites in this series, but still better than average. Citrus is stronger than the pine.
