Naked City Genius Juice
Tap at brewpub. The description on the menu is essentially that this is a filtered vermont IPA. Tropical fruits with medium-low bitterness. Pineapple, mango. Nothing overwhelming but solid.

Naked City The Can In Black
Tallboy can extra on a trade. Poured a sort of flat black body with not much of a head. Aroma is wet burmt toast, booze, rotting burnt citrus and bad wet paper bags. Flavor is a bit better, wet burnt toast, earthy, booze, dirt, more bunt mzlts. Body is medium at best with fizzy contemplation. Meh..,,

Naked City The Big Lebrewski
Dark brown, sweet but uneventful...the nose goes nowhere. Touch of coconut, hint of alcohol and roast, has a touch of sweet sugary goodness but never rounds into that full richness the best examples have.

Golden, sweet malts are a bit sweet, so really basic, with just a touch of fruity hop.

Medium brown, mellow cocoa, bit thin, not a whole lot behind this...just a thin, sweet, understated.

Naked City Genius Juice
Cloudy, has a light stewed fruit, lots of bitterness, the malts are harsh, honestly. Husky. Like doing that style but at the margins.

On tap at Naked City, pours a cloudy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, citrus and biscuity malt. Flavour is very cloudy, with piney and resinous hops, with a dry bready malt. Very messy and confused, but pleasant enough.

Naked City Brother Orchid
On tap at Naked City, pours a clear dark copper with a small beige head. Aroma brings out Belgian yeast, some fruity esters, and candied sugar. Flavour is along the same lines, with candied sugar, Belgian yeast and cloyingly sweet brown sugar. Way too sweet for the style and totally inauthentic. Not a fan.

Naked City The Big Lebrewski
Bomber from brewery. Very dark brown, not black. Long lasting head. Not sure what makes this a white chocolate. Not really imperial stout, more like a strong brown. Some lactose with see sugar but not sweet malts. It’s very drinkable but not particularly interesting.

Naked City NC 17 Malt Liquor
Growler thanks to beastie! Nose is moderate adjunct, corn. Fairly clear gol with a small white head. Taste is initially very sweet, sugary, almost a lactose or creamy sugar. Nose shows some light butter as it warms. Moderate fruitiness in the flavor. Lacks any hot or fusel alcohol. Lacks any candy apple yeast esters too. Actually not bad.
