Le Castor Aussieland 4.6  
Belle couleur jaune voilé. Arômes de jus d’orange. Saveur d’agrumes. Amertume parfaitement dosée. Délicieux.

The Virginia Beer Co. Liquid Escape 4.7  
The Virginia Beer Company Williamsburg, Virginia
Super complex! But super crushable too. Not a sour, but just a hint of tartness. Like the Gatorade of beers!

The Virginia Beer Co. Double Free Verse 4.6  
The Virginia Beer Company Williamsburg, Virginia
Much preferred the 2020 version to the 2019 version (which was brewed with a Norwegian yeast strain). This has a ton of hop flavor and the Azacca really shines. Lots of tropical notes on the front and back sides, and just a touch of pine on the finish. Would drink again!

The Virginia Beer Co. Confusion Corner 4.5  
The Virginia Beer Company Williamsburg, Virginia
As far as Triple IPA's go, I don't have much experience. But this one makes me want to become more knowledgeable because WOW it doesn't drink like a 9.7% recipe. This is one of those low bitterness, high hop flavor brews - a lot of late addition hops, from what I was told by the staff. Full-bodied, citrusy, lovely head, and a slight but not unpleasant bite. Would drink again!

The Virginia Beer Co. Double Tapped 4.6  
The Virginia Beer Company Williamsburg, Virginia
This beer is bursting with flavor! Juicy. Smooth. Citrus. Pineapple. A nice bite on the backend without being overwhelmingly bitter on the finish. Really glad they decided to can this the second time around!

The Virginia Beer Co. Keep Virginia Beautiful 4.8  
The Virginia Beer Company Williamsburg, Virginia
Beers for a cause! Love those. This one is a straight Mosaic bomb. Super aromatic with pungent flavors. Dank. Really smooth thanks to the soft red wheat malt. And proceeds support recycling efforts in Virginia. Winner!

The Virginia Beer Co. Liquid Escape 4.5  
The Virginia Beer Company Williamsburg, Virginia
A lot going on with this one. Per the brewery folks, it's best to think of this as two beers blended into one. A hint of tartness but it's not meant to be a sour ale. Lemongrass and sea salt give it a refreshing, soft finish. It goes down too easy!

The Virginia Beer Co. One Night In Georgia 4.5  
The Virginia Beer Company Williamsburg, Virginia
Peach and tartness, makes for a winning combo. Not so much fruit that it's like drinking dessert, but just enough so you know there's a peach in there somewhere. Really nice for a hot day.

Dangerous Man Kölsch 4.5  
Dangerous Man Brewing Company Minneapolis, Minnesota
A fantastic summer Kolsch. Splitting a Crowler on a hot summer day in MN. Wife really enjoyed this to. This would be a good 12 pack summer beer but Dangerous Man doesn’t do that.

Verdant Where Does The Time Go? 4.6  
Verdant Brewing Co Falmouth, Cornwall
Can from Cork & Cask. Murky golden body with a thick white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, sponge cake, papaya and salted orange. Flavour of mango, dried coconut and passionfruit. Full body with a creamy texture. Soft fizz. Punchy and delicious.

Cigar City Alom's Imperial Stout 4.6  
Black pour with tan head. Aroma is chocolate and vanilla. Taste adds coffee and cinnamon and pepper. Enjoyable shit

Wychwood Hobgoblin (Bottle) 4.5  
A delicious, crisp and satisfying brew. I normally drink more hoppy IPAs, but I appreciated the slightly sweet taste and bite compared as an alternative. I tasted this as part of a Lidl boxed set which was great value for money, so I don’t know how much this would cost on its own. Either way, a nice addition to be revisited again.

Hawkshead Imperial Flump King 4.5  
Hawkshead Brewery Staveley, Cumbria
This marshmallow stout was one of our selection from Left Field bought during Covid19 lockown, and at 10% went down very well.

AleSmith Speedway Stout - Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee 4.5  
AleSmith Brewing Company San Diego, California
03-JUL-2020, draft @Hop House. Black with a lasting, lacing, brown head. Loads of coffee aroma. Taste is huge coffee, tar, chocolate, hops, alcohol. Full body. Fuller than the regular? It feels like it. Carbonation is average- and together with the full body it just feels soooo smooth. Very bitter. Almost hurtingly so but the bitterness balances the sweetness nicely. As is with Speedway Stout it is never in-your-face but just so tasteful and balanced. Lovely.
