This is a decent Vienna lager (5.4% ABV) from Mexico. It begins
with smells of biscuit and toasted nut bread. First sip brings
caramel, bread, some molasses, and malt. Hops are faint
but present. Finish is dominated by caramel, toffee and
sweet earthy notes all of which fit the style.
Overall Rating: Above Average
|Two Roads Road 2 Ruin
This is a well made, hop forward double IPA (8% ABV) that is
flavorful and refreshing. It opens with an aroma of citrus, tangerine,
pineapple and a hint of malt. Flavor bring tropical fruits, leafy tea
notes, bread, and light orange. Smooth with a subdued hop bite
and a touch of bitterness to balance a lightly sweet finish. Not
complex but quite quaffable for a DIPA.
Overall Rating: Very Good
|Sierra Nevada Hop Hunter IPA
This is an American IPA that comes in at
6.2% ABV. It's nose features floral and
citrus notes with hints of honey. honey.
Taste brings grapefruit, orange, pine,
crackers, and some malt. Carbonation is
appropriate; the body medium light. Too
balanced for it's name as hops, while clearly
present do not dominate as expected.
Well made IPA that will struggle to find it's
home in a crowded marketplace.
Overall Rating: Good-
