From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Rusty Nail Fog Monster

This is a 6.8% New England IPA.  It opens with orange,grapefruit,
and wet grass aromas. Flavors are orange peel, citrus, pineapple,
and lime over a grainy bread base. A light bitterness lingers at the
finish over more citrus notes. Not the typical juice bomb that many
now make in this category.  For me that's a good thing.

Overall Rating: good+
Knee Deep Hoptologist

This is a 9% American DIPA  Expect a nose dominated by citrus  
with notes of orange and grapefruit.  Taste is a bit mudded with
tropical fruit favors of papaya, mango,  grass, pine, and a hint of
caramel.  Finish brings a light bitterness over bread and malt notes.
Alcohol is well hidden.  A decent beer but better DIPAs out there.

Overall Rating: Above Average
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!
