|Industrial Arts Torque Wrench
This is an 8% American DIPA that is packed with layers of flavor.
Expect aromas of grapefruit, sweet orange, lemon zest, honeydew
melon, papaya,hops, pine, and mango. Taste follow the nose with
a big explosion of flavor. It's mildly bitter, lightly dank, and
finishes with a hint of light sweetness. The ABV is well hidden so
be careful. You'll want more than one of this.
Overall Rating: Excellent -
|New Belgium Dayblazer
This is an American Blonde Ale that is quite sessionable at 4.8%.
It opens with a very faint nose of white bread and a bit of honey.
The taste brings light notes of crackers, grains, mild hops, with just
a hint of pine and citrus. New Belgium calls it an "Easy Going Ale"
which is true. If you like Coors you'll be very pleased with it. There
are far more flavorful beers out there at this low ABV for craft
drinkers. Overall a decent lawnmower beer sold at craft prices.
Overall: Average -
|Terrapin Cumulus Lupulus
This is an American DIPA with a 8.1% ABV. It
opens with a resinous and citrusy nose
featuring passion fruit, tangerines, oranges,
and light malt. Flavors are orange
marmalade, pine mango, lemon, and
caramel which doesn't quite fit. And it's not
a true NEIPA as they claim. Still this is a
much better than usual offering from a
brewery owned by MillerCoors.
Overall Rating: Good
