Mudshark Desert Magic IPA
Poured from a bottle brought back from AZ. Thin white head and a bit on the yellow side of what Iíd expect from an IPA. Mild aroma but a pretty solid and assertive bitterness hits the tongue. But, thereís not enough going on after that initial bitterness. Thereís nothing juicy or malty to go with it and the flavor profile is a one trick pony. One is enough.

Mudshark Vanilla Caramel Porter
12 oz single bottle from Total Wine & More - Gilbert, AZ. Black appearance with a fluffy tan head, light lacing, mostly dissipating. Aroma of caramel/toffee, vanilla, chocolate, biscuit, light coffee and light roast. Similar flavor, rich, dark and moderately sweet with light roasted bitterness. Light to medium body, slightly thin with a lingering, sweet, light dry finish. Not bad, kind of dominated by adjuncts.

Similar flavor, adding moderate malt sweetness and a touch of hop bitterness. Light to medium body. A little generic and slightly boring overall.

Bottled. Pours hazy yellow, white head. Aroma is lots of wheat, blueberry, vanilla, lemon, orange. Flavor is wheat heavy, blueberry, not much vanilla, maybe a bit. Little bit of an astringent bite at the end. Not bad. Not amazing, but not bad either.

Mudshark Desert Magic IPA
Pour is a golden straw with faint orange hues. Weak to no head but some lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus. Flavor followed with floral and citrus at the fore, bittering hops in the finish and finishing with a slight astringency and acidic mouthfeel. Drinkable mediocre IPA though.

Mudshark Havablue Wheat Beer
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy pale yellow with a very short-lived white head. Aroma is fragrant blueberry and light earthy wheat malt with light bubble gum notes. Flavor is lightly tart and sweet blueberries, light vanilla notes and earthy wheat malt with a dry finish. Light body and carbonation. This is kind of thin and watery with not much flavor.

Mudshark Full Moon Belgian White Ale
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy orange with a small, frothy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is earthy wheat malt, alcohol, perfumey coriander, light orange peel and bubble gum. Flavor is earthy and spicy wheat malt, peppery and perfumey alcohol, light orange peel and coriander with some tartness and a sweet, boozy finish. Medium body and light carbonation. This beer seems a little "dirty" and possibly infected.

Mudshark Morning Buzz Coffee Stout
On tap at Addictions Bar & Grill, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out toasted malt, oats, and dry cocoa. Flavour is earthy, with notes of oats, earthy qualities and light roast. A bit muffled and fungal on the finish. Not too well-brewed. Meh.

Mudshark Vanilla Caramel Porter
*From notes* Thanks to Francis for bring this beer back for me. Pours black with no head. Aroma of vanilla and chocolate. Taste is vanilla and not just a hint. A little thin but overall it is nice to have a vanilla beer that you get the vanilla flavor and its not hidden.

Mudshark Hop Cop
32oz growler, filled at Craft 64, pours with a crystal clear deep gold body that supports a near white head of foam. The aroma offers up a blend of tangelo, light pineapple, spicy onion and some mango. OK, this is going well. Alright, the taste follows suit as I get a bitter and juicy blend of tangelo, pineapple and mango running up against spicy bitter onion like earthy hoppiness. It gets a little softer to midway as a modest sweet malt base lets you know itís there and itís providing solid footing for this hop bill. Damn. This is just solid. Into the finish I get an occasional flash of mint and faint hints of earthy tea too. Solid crushable IPA where the beer is pretty crisp and the body is on the sessionable light side. Taste and feels a little like Sculpin. I hope to get more fresh growlers of this as the temps exceed 110F as this will be a terrific hot weather brew. Solid!!

Meh. Pretty standard or below IPA (though as this establishment had weak hoppy offerings it may not have been wholly fresh). Bitter spice and pine, malty. just ok.
