Birra Moretti

Dogfish Head Brewery

Sixty-One IPA

Snow White frosting over vodka-cran colored beer with cirrus drifts. Cartoon stubble lacing. Raspberry, blackberry, grape-y with blood orange, dried orange, red grapefruit, hibiscus and citrus crowd. Lovely entry, reminiscent of bandol rose, with a suggestion of pink lemonade, bay, orange pith, lemongrass, and cardamom. Dry and satisfying in all respects. Carrots and cran-mint come to mind. Festive and bright!! #dogfishhead #dogfishheadbrewing #dogfishheadsixtyone #beer #bier #biere #birra #ale #ipa #syrahipa #continuallyhopped #hops — 4 days ago

Double Trouble IPA

It’s been three years since my last review of this little slice of double trouble. Loose and thorny crown of creamy white with cartoon bone lacing plus bubble font. Golden overall, but reddish tinges turn it pink. Banana bread, with honey butter, a bit of molasses and orange marmalade scented, but the breakfast stops there. Healthy dollops of of honey buoy herbs de Provence, golden apple, juniper sharpness, lemon-arabica, pecan, and extra lavender. .

Toppling Goliath Brewing Company

King Sue Double India Pale Ale

Hazy look of grapefruit with a few grenadine drops, and thick white crown that sits the throne like foam. Ladybug lacing. Sweet grapefruit, tangerine and lemon marmalade smells laced in leek, and green onion filaments; a healthy navel orange and persimmon. Buttered rum creaminess, turns pale with pith of grapefruit and Meyer lemon, then twists in a hint of pepper, lime peel and nutmeg pudding. The central theme is creamy orange, but porcupines with darts of intense citrus. Dangerously poised and hard to wrap your arms around. #topplinggoliath #fieldmuseum #topplinggoliathbrewingco #kingsue #kingsuedipa #ipa #doubleipa #dipa #beer #bier #biere #birra #iabeer #iowabeer #decorahia # — 18 days ago

Crown Valley Brewing

Imperial Pumpkin Smash Stout

Ever one of the better pumpkin offerings. Medium Chocolate brown with mere tufts of ecru that retreats to a spiderweb study against a black backdrop and minuscule pointillist’s lacing of an unctuous nature. Buttery toffee and dark candy glass with treacle and molasses mix with mocha and brownie warmth. Earmarks of vanilla bean and nutmeg with the finest dusting of just heated red chili and cooking coffee greet the nose. Initially, chili-cinnamon warmth appear then fade to espresso and bourbon-caramels. Thick malts, and licorice resins in raisin and date purées and beet and brown sugars. Vanilla is the finish with perfect Connecticut wrapped cigar flavors to make this an exceptional treat! #crownvalley #crownvalleyimperialpumpkinstout #pumpkinbeer #stout #imperialstout #beer #bier #birra #MObeer #missouribeer — a month ago

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

Handcrafted Pale Ale

Must admit to an affinity for this seasonal! Such a fresh and clean nose of malt and pine-y hops, lemon, lime and orange peels, candied ginger, and coriander. Vibrant mouthfeel, accentuated by citrus action, cola, savory, coffee oil, buckwheat bring the bitter, and the whole never deviates from ‘beer’ balance because the fresh hop refuses to overwhelm. . #beer #biere #birra #bier #sierranevada #sierranevadabrewing #sierranevadacelebration #celebrationipa #ipa #freshhopipa #chicoca #2019beer #winterbeer — 7 days ago

KBS Chocolate Coffee Stout

Hard pour if you’ve a desire to to see a head of coffee foam in dark cappuccino. It loiters a little with unctuous lacing that stick in place in globules, sporadically spaced. Dark chocolate scented, where brew, and coffee bean mix with toffee and sweet cedar, vanilla bean and nougat. Chocolate-pecan-caramel turtles amp up with mocha and espresso, a tiny pinch of black pepper, dark tobaccos, bakers chocolate, and brown sugar coated malt chocolate. Sweet initially, then revelatory as it sorts its relationships, then bitter, with pine, acanthus, chicory, walnut and pecan shell. Warm, rich, and covered in monster muck. Like a cigar smoke filled station wagon driven by a dark chocolate Santa after an Italian truck stop espresso run being slowly pulled into a tar pit. One for the ages. Happy holidays, ya filthy animals!

Green Man Brewery

ESB Special Amber Ale

Raspberry tinted to near-mahogany. Sported a loose, white, fast fading, jellyfish-markings residue, and shrinking lace spots. Raspberry-apricot-peach marmalade nose, with hatch chili notes. Salted watermelon, tight sound raspberry and sour soft cherry tartness, quinine; tartaric citrus. Light and bright here without excessive pucker. Super session sour for the hot boat days. #greenmanbrewing #NCbeer #beer #biere #biere #birra #berlinerweisse #tartberry #tartbeer #sourbeer #sessionsour — a month ago

Free State Brewing

Old Backus Barleywine Ale


Muddy, ruddied and cloudy with an active head bubbling up from the belly. Fine pate for a barley; tall and well informed. Raisin, brown sugar and date commingle with brown banana and baked peach smells, fruitcake-box, nepenthe, and fig. The palate is chocolate and mocha with creamy coffee turning clove and nutmeg, dark brown sugar swirled with treacle, cinnamon, touches of candied mint ginger and maple sugar. #barleywine #freestate #freestatebrewing #lfk #lawrencekansas #oldbackus #oldbackusbarleywineale #ale #beer #bier #biere #birra #abv #2016beer

Innis & Gunn

Limited Edition Mangoes On The Run Mango IPA

Pugnacious head puffs it’s billowy chest. Egg white and and foamy, with a tea colored translucence. Wave top lacing. Orange blossom and mango with grapevine and toast smells leads to sweet barley malt and tangerine. The mango is strong in the mouth, but not sweet. Tons of lemon oil, lime peel, and sweet grapefruit from the hops come out, but still it shows restraint (literally the earmark of every beer style these folks make) and balance. It is fruity, but never steers far from the earthy realm of beer. Opening and closing within the canon, and doing so with an ingredient far from its shores. Great work! Great Scot! .

Parish Brewing Company

Ghost In The Machine Imperial IPA

Pure, white grapefruit juice color, with whipped-to-peaks egg white top that sticks for sheet lacing of anatomical figure silhouettes. Bright orange, sweet grapefruit and peach blossom scents. Magnolia, jasmine and daisy perfumes. Perfectly balanced mouthfeel delivers grapefruit-creamsicle with bits of lemon peel in a marmalade pudding entry. This beauty turns on lime and juicy grapefruit with a dash of white pepper, lemon oil, tangerine, and an awesome burst of vivacious and near-effervescent lemon tart and grapefruit soda. Ultimately holds true to beer with notes of barley, touch of malt, hop textures, lemongrass and fresh oregano. Really sexy ipa here, might improve with a little bottle rest too! Will revisit, if still available. #parishbrewing #parishbrewingco #ghostinthemachine #ghostinthemachinedipa #Labeer #beer #biere #birra #bier #ale #paleale #dankbeer #indiapaleale #ipa #dipa #doubleipa #broussardla #hops #abv — 21 days ago
