Wandering Soul Beer Co.

Things We Don't Say

Apricot yellows with egg white header elevating straight up gangster Malcolm McDowell flattop hoary. Mushroom-intimate and weighty marmalade fruit locker curiosities expose poached pear, Chardonnay, figs, lemon caramel. Creamy. Citrus drowning in viscous malt and hop quicksands, apricot breads bobbing amidst mixed metaphors, pecan and Brazil nut, pine sap leaf to the best convergence of dried orange peel, coriander, lavender, and celeriac root perhaps a juniper nod in a decidedly ginned-up finish. Oily and rich! .

Big Top Brewing Company

Hazy Highwire IPA New England

Lemon-jelly opacity, with cotton ball top that craters to Mykonos dolphins’ playful dance lacing. Lemon pudding, peel and zest nose also suggests orange peel freshness, pineapple bits, coconut, and lime. Perfect interplay of acid versus creaminess here, with the edge tending to acid in the minutiae. Papaya smooth, with guava and dragonfruit, paw paw, soursop, apple and pear extras, banana essence, lychee, lime pith and grapefruit. Exquisite tropical panoply, that rivals many of the best. Incredible job here! Lingering pineapple coppery note, and library of citric pith permutations. .

Brouwerij Van den Bossche

Brouwerij Van Den Bossche Buffalo Belgian Stout

Waxy chocolate, light vanilla, judicious banyan lacing, wood ear mushroom, old tobacco in the eyes and nose. Bitter plum, caramelized gourd, instant coffee, mocha-raisin, sweet vanilla, coffee crumble, a lime twist, pine bark, tea biscuit, and semi-burnt brown sugar to ride it all out. The sum of its parts smacks of cookies dipped in coffee, but there is a lean streak that somehow auto tunes the malty beast’s braying into a simpler tasty beverage. The iced coffee of stouts. #belgian #belgium #BuffaloBelgianStour #abv #stout #maltyballs #darkbeer #dankbeer #bier #biere #beer #beerbeerbeer #buckingbeer #stoutstoutstoutitonout — 3 years ago

Heavy Seas Beer

Plank IV

Grainy date and fig with malty caramel, hot cocoa with cinnamon and dark honey, anise and dark cacao, bitter coffee foam, and copper aromas. Malty entry with rich gingerbread and black sugar. Citrus chocolate interplay, boasting orange peel and candied lemon but shadowed by sarsaparilla and cola, black bread, allspice and pecan with black strap molasses. #barrelaged #4wood #heavyseas #unchartedwaters #plankIV #beer #quads #belgianquad #belgianstyle #oakaged #abv #quadrupel #2016 — 3 years ago

Brewery Ommegang

Neon Neon Rainbows Hazy Double IPA

Dark as muddied apricot juice. Slick and unstable head whisking away in oily retreat, with rapid lacings of unraveling ghost smokes turning will-o-the-wisp. Apricot-pineapple with a sweet kerosene note. Bananas and Honeycomb cereal. Lime pith and soursop secondary smells. Plantains dried at medium ripeness, lemon pith, and tangerine threads on the palate. Connecticut tobacco leaf. Chalky lemon. There is such an interesting dichotomy between the malt caramel notes initially, and the overwhelming, cancelling pithy citrus, which obnubilates the former. Kumquat and starfruit combine on the finish with lemon tart candy and grapefruit reduction. .

Founders Brewing Company

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. .

The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery

Dopplebock Duck-Rabbator Lager

Lager is only slightly misleading here. Red-black with creamed coffee crown. That laces and effaces with ram horn arcs that ride the ring around blackest space. Kona coffee and medium-dark chocolate charms lead coconut and malt notes into vanilla bean and creme cookie with ginger snap ghosts. Lovely and smooth with coffee and milk chocolate creaminess that begs grain earthiness to align behind its toffee and vanilla in caramel and sweet tea and finally dark cacao firmness. #beer #dopplebock #bock #theduckrabbit #DuckRabbatorlager #abv #dankbeer #NCbeer #Blacklager #duckgoatrabbit — 3 years ago

Sixpoint Brewery

Cosmic Handshake

Yellow watermelon orange, border of opacity. Loose, bright, white foam. Suddenly enough, none, but fast and oily brain grooves and amorphous blob-people trace out the forlorn and droopy lacings. Cheer up! The nose is full of concentrated tangerine zest, with look-alive lime, and lemon scented sunshine glinting off of shattered space debris. There is something so ‘dessicated lemon’ here, with a lambic-balsam edge, but also gasoline and lemongrass-white pepper. Anomalistic. Tasty sour pear, grapefruit, and funky golden plum all burst in sour unison, leaving pineapple to prickle amidst the pieces, and apricot shows ripely, timely and dedicatedly sweet, perhaps even slightly dried. Really amazing and complex, seamless without becoming divergent or clunky. Sour NE style double ipa... looking forward to the imperial version, should one materialize. #sixpoint #sixpointbrewing #sixpointbrewery #sixpointcosmichandshake #sourale #sour #sourbeer #souripa #ipa #indiapaleale #newenglandipa #sournewenglanddipa #dipa #beer #bier #biere #birra #cerveza #cerveja #abv #dap #intergalactichighfive #collab #collaborationbeer #victorybrewing #twoworldscollide — a year ago

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 — 2 years ago

Ashley Gang Imperial India Pale Ale

Gorgeous amber that approaches opacity. White chalk line crown with cosmic bubbles clustering. Candied grapefruit and pretzel nose becomes tangerine marmalade on wheat germ. Drops like a grapefruit gumdrop into cigar box with cedar and sweet tea murmurs, and proves a lovely complement to the malt sugars which somehow come off as raw granules. All the sweet notes extend to a point like a psychedelic pencil that writes in wheatgrass tannin and molasses burnt onto cast iron. Just what I needed to kickstart my brain. What!!!? 9.8% alc. scratch the kickstart, we just hit 60! #ipa #imperialipa #ale #oakaged #bigtopbrewingcompany #Sarasota #flbeer #beer #floridabeer #florida #indiapaleale #AshleyGang #brainbeer #hops #abv — 3 years ago
