Holy Mountain Test of Time 3.8  
Holy Mountain Brewing Company Seattle, Washington
Latona Pub, Seattle. Congrats on this big anniversary to one of the fine old school beer establishments in the city. Creamy thick foam, bright juicy orange antifreeze appearance, fairly hazed. Chewy, rough hops all over this beer. This is a chunky, rough and delicious. An interesting IPA befitting the bar and the brewery. Fairly strong malt base, bread and rye, seemingly. Rough bread crust reminds me of more old school IPAs from the northwest. Hops are modern and delicious, but are rather balanced in with the unusual but delicious malt base. House HM yeast flavors. Green, piney, resin forward hop flavors. Full body, this is chewy and so tasty. Lovely, solid IPA.

Highmark Blueberry Blonde 3.6  
Highmark Brewery Fredericksburg, Virginia
Draft at the brewery. Poured a clear, yellow orange color with not much of a head on top to speak about. Aroma was blueberry muffin. Lots of blueberry notes, some sweet brown sugar crumble. Flavor was similar. Not too sweet, nice blueberry character comes through. Well made, especially since it’d be easy to really mess this one up.

Highmark Yellow Belly 3.5  
Highmark Brewery Fredericksburg, Virginia
Poured a mostly clear yellow color with a small white head. Aroma had some light fruity notes. Floral notes. Nice. There’s some light crispness here, a touch earthy hops, with a light citrus finish. Tasty.

Highmark Power Line ESB 3.5  
Highmark Brewery Fredericksburg, Virginia
Draft at Highmark Brewery. Poured a light orange, caramel color with a small off-white head. Aroma was light caramel malts. Light sweet grains. Some light nutty notes. This was easy to drink.

Almanac Tropical Galaxy 3.6  
Almanac Beer Company San Francisco, California
On tap at prefunk Boise. Pours out a hazy straw color topped with a white head. Nose is plenty of tropical fruit notes and a nice hop touch. Taste is more of the tropical fruit notes a sour tart bite.

Sawdust City Death and Taxes 2.5  
Sawdust City Brewing Company Gravenhurst, Ontario
Can from the brewery. Pours a clear slightly reddish beige with a small white head. The base beer tastes like a wheat beer with a very subtle tart raspberry Aroma. It’s pretty underwhelming really, the raspberry is very very faint, I expect alot more fruit finally Radler. This is basically a very subtle fruit beer. Disappointing.

Tapistry Northern Trippin’ 3.6  
Tapistry Brewing Bridgman, Michigan
Tap at the source. Pours pale opaque yellow. Aroma is lemon, orange, mango, pineapple. But aroma is mild on all of those. Flavor is lemon, orange, grapefruit. Very clean. Not NE by any measure of the term. Piney finish. But a pleasant enough beer.

Transient Artisan Ales Only I didn’t say Fudge 3.9  
Transient Artisan Ales Bridgman, Michigan
I said F-dash-dash-dash. Tap at the source. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, fudge, cocoa, some lactose. Flavor is caramel, fudge, sweet lactose, soft mouthfeel, but still bull bodied. Good and a welcome Christmas Story reference.

Transient Artisan Ales Refraction (Mosaic) 3.9

Tap at the source. Pours light lemon haze, white head. Aroma is mosaic hops, dank, pineapple, blood orange, grapefruit, grass. Flavor is sweet, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, pils malt, corn, little piney finish. Very solid, would revisit.

355ml can. Medium gold, a bit of haze and a full white cap. The nose has piney hops. Taste - caramel malt, a touch of fruitiness, citrus and pine. Bitter finish and dry. A simple but nicely done APA.

Dunham Cyclope Lambda 3.4  
Brasserie Dunham Dunham, Quebec
Bottle from local iga grocery A: citrusy, melon, orange. App: clear copper smallish white head. T/p: med body with short bitter finish. Moderate carbonation. O: That’s a bit old school for my liking. It’s definitely drinkable but I won’t buy more. I’m always excited to try any beer of this arrow and I can’t wait for next release.
