|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
|Gun Hill Void of Light
This is a 7.9% Export Stout. Aromas are of
chocolate, dark roast cold brew coffee,
raisins, and grass. Flavors follow nose with
the addition of prune / raisin and light hops.
Finish features lightly brunt, bitter, strong
coffee with hints of buttery toffee. A good
example of the style.
Overall Rating: Good
