|Stillwater Of Love and Regret
This is an herbed/spiced beer with a 4.57.2% ABV) that was
actually made in Belgium as a collaboration. It opens with aromas
of belgian yeast, spice, and grassy hops. Flavors are clove,
lavender, nutmeg, green tea, and a touch of wet hay backed by a
touch of orange and lemon peel. The layers of flavor come into
balance at the finish making fthis a respectable saison.
Overall Rating: Above Average
|Long Trail Green Blaze
Yet another American IPA (6.5% ABV) in the marketplace. This
opens with nicely blended and subdued aromas of citrus and
tropical fruits. Taste features solid amounts of fresh cut grass,
papaya, tangerine, pine, and grapefruit with a touch of its rind.
Well made and just as important, it's sold at a very
reasonable price point. Good value, good beer.
Overall Rating: Good+
|Sweetwater Hop Hash
This is a 7.8% ABV Double IPA made in
Georgia. Its nose brings citrus, orange,and
resinous notes. Hops dominate the flavor
but are tempered by a malty backbone with
peppery spice, orange peel and tropical fruit
notes. The finish is crisp with a nice lingering
bitterness. A touch thin for the style but its
big hop profile is right on the money.
Overall Rating: Very Good
