|Oskar Blues Priscilla Wit
This is a typical American version of a typical Belgium wit. At 5.2%
ABV it opens with smells of clove, grain, spices, wheat, and a bit of
citrus. Expect flavors of bread,orange,lemon and banana. Hops
are hard to find. Finish brings yeast, cloves, and light spice.
A solid if unengaging version of the style.
Overall Rating: average+
|Magic Hat Dream Machine IPL
This is an India Pale Lager with a 5.7% ABV. Aromas feature clean
pine scents with hints of caramel and malt. First sip brings a
bracing hop presence followed by citrus, bread, yeast notes. The
dry finish leans to a light bitterness mixed with a nicely balanced
hop - malt mix. Overall this IPL leans to the hop side which makes
for a refreshing drink albeit with a somewhat thin mouthfeel.
Overall Rating: good+
|Third Rock The Rock IPA
This is one of the better offerings from the
Third Rock Brewery in North Carolina. It
opens with a nose of fresh hops, citrus
fruits, pineapple, and light malt. Taste
brings mango, peach, grapefruit and tropical
fruits. Finish is nicely brisk and clean.
Overall a well make IPA (6.6% ABV) that is
both interesting and refreshing.
Overall Rating: Very Good-
