From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Stone Coffee Milk Stout

A 5% ABV milk stout, this beer opens with smells of roasted malts,
sweet coco and coffee.  Flavors are roasted malts, espresso,
chocolate, light black licorice, with a lemon like bitterness at the
finish. Not overly sweet or creamy like many milk stouts.  Well
made and tasty like most Stone brews.

Overall Rating: Good+
Cambridge Flower Child IPA

This is a 6.5 ABV American IPA that has aromas of sweet, sticky
citrus, piney hops, malt, and a hint of bubble gum. Taste brings
notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, toasted grains, dry floral
hops, graham cracker, caramel, fresh hops, grass, and light spices.
It has a clean, lightly bitter finish.   Solid example of the style

Overall Rating: Good
Having sampled nearly 5,000 different beers in my
capacity as a fully certified taster I can promise
honest, thoughtful, and careful evaluations.  However,
remember that these reviews are totally subjective.  
Consider this column an informative resource only.  
The bottom line is to trust your own judgment and
keep drinking!

Trillium Sleeper Street IPA

American IPA (7.1%) opens with a nose of
sweet orange, pine, lime and a hint of fresh
melon.  First sip immediately brings candied
orange which fades quickly as sweet citrus,
apricots, and grapefruit move forward. Finish
brings more hops with orange and tangerine
dominating.  Well made and most drinkable.

Overall Rating: Very Good
