|Magic Hat HIPA
A clean, fresh, assertive hop presence emerges at first sip and
expands into dominate grapefruit notes in mid-taste. As the
finish approaches a slightly sweet, roasted malt background
appears which nicely balances the brew. At a hearty 6.8% ABV
this beer is a winner from ever perspective.
Overall Rating - excellent
|JW Dundee's American Pale Ale
First sip brings some hop notes that move toward a lightly
bitter mid-taste. The lingering finish carries grassy tones
behind a faintly sweet, roasted malt presence.
Undistinguished and below standard for a
quality American Pale Ale.
Overall Rating - below average
Small Craft Warning
This is a pilsener-style bock lager. It
features a hop spice presence that
leads to a somewhat peppery residue in
the finish. There is a bitter background
throughout that helps to cut the
fundamental sweet, malty
character of the brew.
Overall rating - above average
