Lord Hobo Brewing Company

Glorious Galaxy Pale Ale

Pours opaque and agitated with an instantaneous, snowy flattop. It subsequently flattens to a skim of tiny, loose white bubbles, most hugging the rim. Very bold and tropical nose of pineapple, Meyer lemon and clementine with a bit of lemon bread and glazed carrot thrown in for good measure. Chamomile tea and hemp flour in the middle, as lemongrass ultimately sharpens its otherwise soft edges aromatically. Quartz and metallic mineral textures transform citrus to crystal lemon and grapefruit with a nitric element. Grape leaf, lime and candied basil with green pansy flavors and bitter lime marmalade. #glorious #lordhobo #galaxypaleale #beer #ale #hops #lordhobobrewing #paleale #massachusetts #brew — a month ago

Founder's

Doom Imperial India Pale Ale

Off-white cumulous clouds top a cloudy, nearly opaque cistern of Rich Amber. The lacing menaces like zombie fingers before succumbing to the murky cauldron; sparse bubble implore like confused eyes, disembodied. Tropical notes of rum cake and pineapple-banana cream with a suggestion of cocoanut turn cedar and apricot and lemon breads. Vanilla marks the creamy entry with almond and nougat, that turns bourbon ball quickly leaving you with fire and smoke and lemon tea. Whiskey and lemon become pronounced upon the contemplative conclusion! Like being hugged to death by a baby balrog! #founders #barrelaged #bourbonbarrelaged #beer #dankbeer #imperialipa #ipa #imperial #ale #foundersbrewing #doom ## — 3 months ago

Dogfish Head Brewery

Liquid Truth Serum IPA

Two-tone antique gold atop and straw-golden toward the bottom. Ruby grapefruit and tangerine aromas with hints of honey and caramel-y lemon bread. Marmalade-hops.
Piney and zesty entry tamped by rye toast notes and orange pith. Touches of cocoa shell and light, white pepper.

Green Flash Brewing Co.

Double Stout Black Ale

Produced a full head of cappuccino brown, that left a plethora of primitive dinosaur hieroglyphs. Completely opaque and dark as strong coffee. Turkish coffee impression similarly informs the aromas, with a raspberry-dark chocolate streak, a tiny dust of licorice, and some burnt caramel. Mouthfeel is stout perfection, bordering on whole milk with chocolate syrup. Espresso, gingerbread, burnt wheat, bitter, baker’s chocolate, allspice, dried cassis, wormwood, and burnt lavender. #doublestout #stout #beer #beerbeerbeer #greenflash #abv #stoutout #beeroclock #beerculture #beerdrinkers #stoutitallout #? — 7 months ago

Swamp Head Brewery

Big Nose India Pale Ale

Antique-golden amber just under opaque. Home air filter head that dissolved like culinary foam. Rusty can of honey, date bread, candied grapefruit peel, caramelized banana, a tiny suggestion of spray adhesive and very pleasant lemongrass soap, baked pineapple alongside fresh rind of pineapple. Very aromatic. Allspice and nutmeg entry stay in the bitter stratosphere with a wicker basket taste beneath this bitter orange balloon. A bit of palatal rhinoplasty is needed here to navigate over the summit of this big stone nose and its flat grapefruit, orange peel and bitter pecan. Watch the treetops! We’re losing altitude! #swampheadbrewery #swamphead #floridabeer #florida #beer #ipa #ale #abv #ibu — 2 months ago

Cigar City Brewing

Jai Alai White Oak India Pale Ale

Spongy, bubbling crown of clown hair that bubbles away into an aurora without significant lacing; just the odd outcropping. Orange pith and lemon vie against carrot and pineapple upside down cakes. Hempseed, ginger and and a touch of cypress cameo with grapefruit seed aromas. Less creamy than in the past, with the sense of orange bitters through the lifespan. Pecan shell, cigar box, grapefruit oil, nettle, pronounced oak toast, and metallic lemon. Somehow different from years past. Maybe American oak lending a Spanish moss dryness to the finish. #cigarcitybrewing #whiteoakjaialai #jaialai #ipa #beer #paleale #indiapaleale #florida #ale #oakaged #ccb #oakonthis #beerprudence — 3 months ago

Hinterland Brewery

Lunatic Imperial Stout

Coffee and cream crown that dissipates atop a solid black monolith. Roasted chicory coffee, grill char, blackened fennel, rum pudding, and molasses. Flat and hard hitting with coffee and burnt fig, nutmeg, cinnamon, bitter chocolate, tar, poppyseed and valerian root. Lots of nuts here, betel, coffee, black walnut, burnt pecan. This Lunatic is nutty as a squirrel cage!#lunatic #hinterland #imperialstout #stout #beer #darkbeer #dankbeer #oakaged — 3 months ago

Brauerei Max Leibinger GmbH

Zeppelin

Cloudy and grey to red-brown Amber through the pour. Leesy-teasy. This voluminous lady sprung a shock white, unexpectedly pure pate. Cinnamon baked apple and caramel are soft suggestions initially. Barley and malt cameo as themselves with a whole jar of raw honey and ginger snap crumbles. These aromas are deceptive. She’s not that sweet, really. She snaps between a mineral texture and a pretzel bun with a Hawaiian bread middle. There is lingering almond butter after a briny lemon and a citrus tea that drags it all back. There is a decidedly German depth to the beer, which embraces a baked bread quality, but this is lean and sleek, sidestepping the heartburn of some styles. Hazelnut oil, almond flower, pecan, and sunflower seed persist in a lees-y postlude. #brauereimaxliebinger #unfiltered #zeppelin #germanbeerday #deutschland #Deutschebier #bier #beer #lees #strangebrew #gettheLedout #Hindenbeerg — 2 months ago

Stone Brewing Co.

Stone Americano Stout

Big head of coffee foam crackles crisply changing to lighter tan as it drops to thinly reveal the black liquids below. Fun lacing of rings and loch monsters inform the ring. Delicious dark roasted aromas and something bordering on malted marshmallow. Chocolate truffle cross-sections follow. Arabica-dabra! Lovely mouthfeel with a mocha coating turns bitter in the best of ways. This is round two for this stout, and it only seems to get better! Cedar Sumatran tobacco, roasted pine nuts, toffee, leather, vanilla, and heavy espresso notes coax one into basalt with their black arts! Forest floor of mushroom and softening bark. #stonebrewery #americanostout #stout #imperialstout #beer #darkbeer #coffeestout #stoustoutstoutitallout #beers #isanybodystoutthere #oakaged — 3 months ago

Probably the best beer review I've ever read. 🍺

Thirsty Dog Brewing Company

Siberian Night Imperial Stout

Micro-mousse with pixilated lace. Nearly black, brown and opaque. Chicory coffee, near-burnt and boasting mesquite, cedar and extracted vanilla. Bitter entry softens to darkest rye. Burnt s’mores, intensely creamy, tobacco-leaf sweetness, Madagascar vanilla bean, oak tannin, burnt Boston baked bean. Throughout there is a bitter chocolate core and an over cooked-coffee, but it is not unpleasant, but a pleasant contrast to the striking creaminess. #thirstydog #imperialstout #stout #beer #dank #beerbeerbeer #abv — 7 months ago
