From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Founders Green Zebra

This is a watermelon gose that will bring differing opinions even for
true gose fans.  It opens with a nose of watermelon candy and
light malt.  Taste brings lightly salted and juicy watermelon with a
slightly funky, tart underbelly.  Its an interesting and refreshing
fruited gose but tastes too much like a Jolly Rancher,

Overall Rating: Average-
Omnipollo Fatamorgana

This is an American Imperial IPA with saison note.  It is brewed
using oats and wheat, dry-hopped twice, then  left untouched in
post fermentation.  It opens with aromas of  moderate aromas of
citrus/orange, grapefruit, and slightly dank resinous hops.  First sip
brings bread and oat notes with a touch of vanilla-like sweetness.
That is followed by flavors of citrus/orange, grapefruit pith, herbal,
floral hops with  a light bitter finish.  Different and delicious.

Overall: Very Good
Having sampled over 7,000 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!

Platform Bucket of Gloves

This is an American IPA with a 7.5% ABV. It
opens with smells of citrus, juicy overripe
oranges, and lightly dank hops.  Flavors are
passion fruit, peach, candy sugar, damp
forest and peach.  A very light earthy
sweetness lingers in the background.  Notes  
of blended rustic grains gives the beer a soft
and smooth feel. Not a typical IPA for sure.

Overall Rating: Good-
