Pours a wonderful, dark-brown hue with impressive foamy,
frothy head with some staying power. Subtle citrus and cherries
throughout. with hints of dark fruit in a light caramel malt
background. Spiciness is mild and allows for the brew's true
complexity to come through. Alcohol is well hidden as a
smooth, hop notes appear in the finish.
Overall Rating - Very Good
This Bourbon Barrel-Aged Tripel opens with tastes of Belgium
yeast, candy sugar, and a touch of bourbon nicely positioned in
a hop background. Tropical fruit sweetness and a subtle malt
breadiness appear in mid-sip. When colder, refreshing tropical
fruit and vanilla notes appear;as it warms is a yeast, bourbon
whiskey, and light alcohol presence dominates.
Overall Rating - Excellent!
|Clipper City Pale Ale
A fruity citrus taste blends with a sweet
malt character in this very approachable
brew. Hop bitterness quickly balances the
ongoing sweetness as a light spiceness
emerges. Undistinguished but pleasant.
Overall ratting - fair
