Schooner Exact Evil Tendencies
Tap at Bud. Syrupy nose, honey, oranges, peaches. Orange-brown, clear, with a fine, low head. Sweet and fruity, tropical fruit, the over-ripe kind, durian, mango. Heavy and sweet, and a bit boozy. Not really my thing.

Schooner Exact Truancy Double IPA
On tap @ Schooner Exact. Pours clear bright golden with medium white head that laces well. Aroma is light sugary sweet malt, dank fresh vegetal hops on the back. Taste is sweet very light caramel malt, sharply bitter hops; big grapefruit and cut grass notes. Well-balanced with the sweetness here. Not exceptional, but solid, easily enjoyable.

Schooner Exact Northwest Framboise
On tap at Elizabeth Station, pours a crystal clear copper pink with a small white head. Aroma brings out acidic raspberries, some artificial flavour as such and medium sweetness. Flavour is not pleasant, with artificial raspberries, artificial sweetness and a sort of medicinal character. Nothing going right here. Not good.

Schooner Exact Boxcar Hopper
2015 Vintage. Dark pour with little head retention. Very oak and whisky forward. Caramel malty, dark fruits, fig. Medium full bodied. I wish the barrel was an it more restrained since it overpowers the rest of the beer. Still, not bad.

Schooner Exact Hopvine IPA
Golden/amber - clear with solid carbonation, a 1 inch off-white bubbly head, receding slowly, leaving a splotchy lacing. Aroma is citrus with a hint of pine. Nicely balanced flavor with citrus, bready malts, some piney bitterness at the front, getting stronger through the middle and into the finish. Moderate feel - not thin, not thick. A nice, but not really remarkable, IPA. I enjoyed it, and would not avoid buying it. No specific faults, just kind of middle of the pack.

Schooner Exact Barrel Aged Imperial Porter
Bottle @ Lingua tasting, shared late after some hefty beers which may skew perceptions a bit. Pours near black with nice lacing. Roasty aroma, and savoury flavour, dark chocolate, soy, roasted malt, coffee. Had a booziness which tended to grow, showing some tart tannic oak, some chocolate. Perhaps lacked a full body to back up the heft of flavours but was smooth. Nice overall.

Schooner Exact Truancy Double IPA
Just a big pungent hop bomb. Some very nice late hopping aromatics with a definite WC/EC hybrid vibe. Light body for the ABV and dangerously drankable.

Schooner Exact Truancy Double IPA
Very intense tangerine and mandarin oranges in the nose with caramel and pink grapefruit sitting passively in the background. The citrus character in the nose is fantastic. The mouth is more like drinking tangerine, grapefruit and caramel juice. Potent. Deep but not overly bitter and much more malt focused in the mouth compared the nose. Love the hop character on this. Great.

Schooner Exact 3 Grid IPA
Bomber pours an almost clear gold with a two finger puffy off-white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is a sweet citrus floral. Taste is a tangy sweet citrus with a mild malt profile. Flavor is excellent. Bitterness is mild, aftertaste lingers.

Schooner Exact Snowpacolypse Black IPA
Bottle:   Dark brown, moderate to large foamy beige head, nice lacing.   Balanced nose of roasted malts and hops.   More roasty than hoppy on the tongue.   Mild bitterness, a touch chalky.   Seems more of a Black Pale Ale.   Clean otherwise.   Moderate body and mouthfeel, albeit leaning towards the thin side.   Soft finish.   Moderate roastiness lingers.   Not a lot of IPA in this Black IPA.   Thankfully it wasnt overly roasty or acrid.   Soft example of the style

Schooner Exact Emerald ISA
Bottle:   Pale orange, faint haze, big fluffy white head, nice lacing.   Soft hoppy nose, fresh, a little like tea leaves.   Similar on the tongue, soft hops, very light bitterness.   Whats there tastes like soft pith and tea leaves.   Smooth, fairly full bodied for an ISA.   Clean finish, lingering pith and tea leaves with only very light bitterness.   Pretty damn good example of the style I must say.

Schooner Exact Amarillo Fresh Hop
Chuckís 85th, Seattle. Darker clear gold, thin foam. Grainy malt body, bready backbone, warm sip. Hops are a light floral character behind the more robust malt; seems an odd choice to show off a special hop. Drinks well, clean smooth and tasty. But clearly not exceptional in a town full of nice fresh hops.

Schooner Exact King Street Brown
22oz bottle 9/14/16 (Pear Delicatessen & Shoppe-SEA)-42į in Shaker-Pours brown with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, toffee, and chocolate. Taste of the same with a bit of Belgiany tastes. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and hits the spot since I am not a big Brown fan.

Schooner Exact Jawja Peach Berliner Weisse
Safeco Field, Seattle. Soapy white foam, lightly clouded gold. Sweet Berliner aroma. Clean, modest Berliner, I wouldnít have picked up the fruit especially. Clean Berliner, nothing special but solid. Nice surprise at the ballpark.

Schooner Exact Hopvine IPA
Rating #2089- 2015.09.27 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 4, Beer 191 - Bottleshare - Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with grapefruitty hops, citrusy, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry bitterness and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

Schooner Exact Truancy Double IPA
Bronze body, decent head. Strong co-humulone catty character with some grapefruit flair--the bouquet of a heavy, humid summer night. The body is catty hops with hair on it. High octane alcohol notes punch through the palate. Enduring grapefruity and catty flavors. Intensely bitter.

Schooner Exact Emerald ISA
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi), as "Emerald IPA.." Nose of piney hop, mild tropical fruit, Mosaic, quite earthy and a bit cat pissy. Light orange/ amber color. Pleasant dryish initial flavor, with crackers, citrus, small bit of stone fruit, and caramel. Medium body. Well-balanced, mild sort of IPA.

Schooner Exact Northwest Framboise
Draft at the Red Hot. Pours a hazy medium pinkish amber with minimal head or lace. Mild berry nose, mixed with peanuts (?), basement, and minerals. Lots of brett character busting through this fruit beer, which seems a bit incongruous. Creamy medium body with moderate carb. Berries, peanuts, basement, and minerals on the mid palate. Rather unfocused. Would like to see a cleaner profile and more fruit forward out front and in back.

Schooner Exact Barrel Aged Imperial Porter
Draft pour at Hop and Hound, listed as bourbon aged, and at 8.4%. Dark brown pour with a fading cola fizz head. Bold coffee grounds aroma. Flavor displays minimum bourbon feature for me, but itís there. Good roasted malt character. Cool finish that takes a stab at being tart. Fun unique porter. Pretty good.

Schooner Exact Papaya Sour
Tap at Watering Hole. Big tart papaya nose that is super fruity and juicy and could be smelled at the next table. Hints of gooseberry and tart apple as well. Quite tart on the palate with low carbonation (just enough to keep it interesting). Light creaminess on the palate. Tart finish. Really great.

Schooner Exact Hop Sails: Beer Junctionís 3rd Anniversary Double IPA
Weil after several years of holding on to this for a good reason and because the beer junction is my place of discovery of new beers and is also celebrating their 6th anniversary in a few weeks. So the beer has turned more of a barleywine now. However a good one at that. Nice hoppy accents. Deep copper with undertones of licorice and honey. Considering This is a three year old double ipa itís not bad as a barleywine.
