From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Sixpoint Cosmic Handshake

This is a colab with Victory brewing.  It/s an 8% Sour IPA.  It opens
with a light catty aroma followed by hop oil pickle brine, and lime.  
Taste features lemon,orange lime, dull citrus, and a hint of
mango.. Not very sour or hoppy.  The  flavors just miss working--
disappointing considering the quality of the breweries.

Overall Rating: Below Average
Kane Nightmare At Sea

This is a 12%ABV Imperial Stout. It pours black with a welcoming
tan head.  Aromas are roasted malt, roasted hickory, and a hint of
honey. Flavors are cocoa powder, coffee, toasted malt and fresh
barley. Hints of sweet wood and grass in the background.  A bit
"hot" in that the alcohol is noticeable.  Little impact form the  
whiskey barrel aging with medium mouth feel.  Well made.

Overall Rating: 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!
