Crooked Run / Aslin Ronin 3.9  
Crooked Run Brewing Leesburg, Virginia
4 oz pour on draft at Crooked Run Sterling. Poured a hazy yellow color with a small off-white head. Aroma was light citrus, light grapefruit. Seriously. Juicy. Really well made double IPA. Hidden alcohol, which is really nice.

Melovino Applewood 3.8  
Melovino Meadery Vauxhall, New Jersey
Interesting looking bottle from jtclockwork. This pours very clear with a light golden hue. Honey and sweet yellow apples in the nose are nice. It drinks like a fruit wine and the ABV matches. The flavors are also honey and sweet yellow apples. This is not a complicated mead and it seems content to do a couple of things very well. And that is enough for me. I like this!

Crooked Run Raspberry Empress 3.5  
Crooked Run Brewing Leesburg, Virginia
4 oz pour on draft at Crooked Run Sterling. Poured a kind of milky, hazy, pink red color with a mall white head. Aroma was tart wild raspberries, berry. Light citrus. Flavor was light zesty citrus, with a generous splash of raspberries.

Tradesman Transmission Fluid 3.6  
Tradesman Brewing Company Charleston, South Carolina
appearance: straight bright, deep pink; creamy light pink head; pretty, shimmery tight-bubbled curtains. aroma: earthy, with ginger, sugar cane (from the beets, I’d wager). taste: ginger, earth, slightly herbal bite. finish: full but lively palate, lingering ginger heat, slightly sweet. notes: Not as sweet as the aroma indicated; unique and pretty tasty. Great palate. Draft at Craft Conundrum in Charleston, South Carolina.

Beachwood Citraholic 4.7  
Beachwood BBQ & Brewing Long Beach, California
Huge aroma and citra hop bomb! Wow. A one-dimensional palate is all that stops this from being perfectly crafted. Only for hop heads. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Funkwerks Pineapple Provincial 3.6  
Funkwerks Fort Collins, Colorado
Enjoyed. Flight at source. No experience with sour and this was a good intro. Aroma of light fruit and funk. Light and easy to drink with a little sour at end. Enjoyable

JosephsBrau Bohemian Style Lager 2.4  
12oz bottle pours a clear pale golden with a large white head. Sweet corn and caramel malt aroma. Big corn malt flavors, sweet caramel, some cracker, light hop bitterness on the finish.

Oskar Blues Hotbox Coffee IPA 4.0  
Oskar Blues Brewery Longmont, Colorado
Poured from a can. Startlingly yellow in color, cloudy, expecting some brownish coloration. Pleasant aroma and taste, very creamy, but I’m not getting coffee. Searching and searching, but it’s not even bitter. I’d recommend it, unless you’re hoping for a coffee beer.

Against the Grain Smoky Wicket 3.4  
Against the Grain Brewery Louisville, Kentucky
Draft at Ei8ht Ball from notes. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have smoked malts, hints of smoked meat, pale malts, citrus, earthy, grass, decent.

Southern Tier Tangier 3.3  
Pours clear light gold with a finger of white head. Aroma is spruce with mandarin oranges and tangerines. Flavor is smooth and crisp with citrus and mild bitters. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Three Floyds Robert The Bruce 3.7  
Pint glass from the source. Deeper amber/mahogany color with light tan head. Aroma is malty and has some mild dark fruit qualities. Taste is malt forward with caramel and toffee notes. Mild dark fruit characteristic coming through. Very low bitterness. Strong example of the style. You may take our lives but you will never take our...opportunity to have this again.

Destihl Quadrupel 3.7  
Destihl Brewery Bloomington, Illinois
500 ml. bottled 03/03/2017 indicates 11% abv, not 11.6% as currently listed here. Mostly clear copper brew has a nice bubbly body and a creamy disc of foam. Aroma is toasted walnut, toffee and touches of clove and booze. Front flavors of toffee, raisin and earthy roasted chestnut. Later sips reveal cherry, banana and clove with a dash of white pepper in the finish. Medium-plus body has smooth low-medium CO2 and a good balance. Only a mild warming touch of the 11% comes through.

Three Floyds Wigsplitter 4.3  
Tap at brewery in Munster during glbtq. Cola brown black with medium off white head. Sweet nose. Taste is creamy, chocolate, coffee, sugar. Like a dessert. The mouthfeel is amazing. Terrific.

Currahee Garand IPA 3.2  
Currahee Brewing Company Franklin, North Carolina
Pours a hazy golden brown on tap with fluffy cream colored head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of pine and citrus hops covered by a Belgian yeast ester. Taste follows, but I’m not sure it was meant to be a Belgian IPA. Hmmmm. Uncontrolled fermentation.
