Tap It TropiCali Dank IPA
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Honey golden with some white haze. Half the glass is almost white foam that leaves thick sticky lacing. A pleasant aroma of stone fruit, tropical fruit, and citrus. Flavor is similar and it is, indeed, dank. Pineapple. Soft malts are barely noticed. Bitterness is low. This is nice and drinks like an East Coast IPA.

Tap It Barrel Aged Cafe Noir
Tap at Beer NV. Dug the nose on this...intriguing mix of cold pressed coffee and barrels. The beer has a hard time showing. Murky dark brown color. Flavor loses me a little as their is a slight astringency from the barrel that is more of a distraction than a compliment, and takes away from the coffee.

Tap It Full Blown Stout
Black in color with a creamy head of tan to light brown foam. Semi sweet cocoa on the aroma with a subtle layer of caramel. Some smoke malt contributes in the dry roast finish. A bit thin but all around a solid stout.

Pours two fingers of head on a hazy straw body. Aroma is grapefruit zest and a pine resin that stings the nostrils. Taste is fairly sweet, pine and grapefruit bitterness. A little boozy. Texture is crisp. There’s no hiding this big beer.

Tap It IPA
风格:American IPA 酒精度:7.0%vol 原麦汁浓度:15.4°P 苦度:72IBU 灌装日期:2016.08.30 饮用日期:2017.03.23 饮用温度:约6℃以上 外观:干净透明的稍淡一些的琥珀色,色度约在10左右;酒头泡沫较细腻,持久度不错,颜色偏黄一些。 香气:强烈的热带水果气息,在这里突出“热带”是因为闻着有甜腻的感觉,麦汁较浓厚的气息。 味道:麦芽甜和酒花苦度非常平衡,从一入口一直平衡到尾韵,这也太易饮了吧!麦芽甜与酒花苦都不算突出,中等的感觉,但两者一直相辅相成。只是口中香气不像闻着那么强烈,较为清透,并不突出,在口腔中有一些辛辣感。收口较干净清爽,尾韵回苦也不突出,与回甘亦是相伴随。 口感:因为麦汁浓度较厚,使得酒体入口感觉中等吧,杀口感亦中等。酒精度不低却没有酒精感。 总体印象:非常平衡易饮的IPA!并不突出苦度,麦芽甜与酒花相得益彰,清甜爽口,让人一直想不断喝下去!!!

Very dark. Mocha head. Big boozie nose and flavor. Chocolate and roast and coffee underneath a huge barrel character. Old Forester is not subtle as a bourbon and the barewling isn’t subtle here. Good stil. Great mix of flavors.

Tap It TropiCali Dank IPA
On tap @ Beer Baron Livermore. Golden beer with some white foam. Smells like a dang fruit salad. Peach, mandarin orange, and a bit of pineapple juice to top it off. Get a hint of pine and resin in the background. Flavor is sweet up front with some bready malts and all those fruity hops. Moderate bitterness on the back end is surprisingly potent.

Tap It Caltucky
Bomber from Corti Bros. Pours dark brown with a dark tan head. Aroma is bourbon heat, but the rye is definitely in place. Full bodied or even better. Flavor is bourbon, chocolate, heat, and I’m thinking a fair amount of rye spice. This is really rich and flavorful. The heat does burn a bit, but to be fair it just doesn’t matter with the great flavor of this ale. Finishing not dry, and somewhat bitter. Excellent.

Bottled, 355ml dumpy from BeerMerchants of Kent. Pale yellow gold with fizzed white head. This proved to be a really thin, tinny beer, there is a forced carbonation mustiness to this and a taste of artificial lemon. Some light biscuit. Really disappointing.

Tap at Pita Kabob in Visalia. Really enjoyed this beer. It was the 2015, so had some age that led to a smooth aroma of slightly ripe dark fruit. Layered with many flavors.

Tap It Father Time Old Ale
Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: AleSmith Barrel-Aged Reserve snifter glass From: Bottle Show in Montecito, Calif. Price: $10.99 Purchased: May 29, 2016 Consumed: Jan. 1, 2017 Reviewed as: Old Ale Misc.: 2015 release; Best enjoyed after 2016 Only picked this up because there was a minimum $10 charge for no fee at Bottle Shop’s ATM. Not the smartest move since I only wanted a soda, but pulled the trigger anyway. I had read the bottle earlier when I was checking out the place and it sounded interesting. Wasn’t thrilled about the “best enjoyed after 2016” phrase. I mean, why not just put it out when it’s ready? I’m also talking to you Deschutes Abyss. Poured a red-brown amber semi-clear color with off-white head. Very light bubbles making their way up from the bottom of the glass. Excellent spotty lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.25) Smelled a mix of dark fruits at first, getting plum, cherry wood, toasty malts, raisin, dates, toasted brown sugar, dark caramel, purple grape wine aromas and slightly boozy earthy leather. (Smell - 4.00) Taste followed the nose for the most part, getting damp, dark basement, plum, cherry wood, raisins, purple grape, brown sugar, dates, toast, wood and earthy leather. (Taste - 4.00) Medium body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 4.25) This was a really good Old Ale. Glad I got the chance to try it. (Overall - 4.25) 4.09 91 A-

West coast "mthr fkr"!!!!!! this is classic San Diego IPA; piney and resiny with a balanced caramel sweetness. Mr trump can I get a green card? Only thing letting this down is a thin mouthfeel but that’s just splitting hairs!

Tap It TropiCali Dank IPA
On tap at Beer Baron in Livermore. It pours a clear pale gold color with a white head. The aroma is awesome with sweet honey-like peaches and orange. Very potent, sweet fruit hops. The flavor has lightly toasted malt with some graham cracker, a little orange and dank bitterness. A bit more malty in the flavor than expected without the hop punch that it delivered in the aroma.
