|Jolly Pumpkin Luciernaga
This beer is a Belgium pale ale that comes in at 6/5% ABV. It pours a
hazy/cloudy pale orange color with a finger plus of off white foam that
leads to a nose of light apple notes and orange citrus. Taste brings citrus,
hints of spice, pepper, and a light sweetness with a touch of funk. The
dry finish is tart and fruity with lemons, pears, green apples.
The brett notes linger with funk and some bitterness
Overall rating:- good
|Chelsea Hop Angel
This is an American IPA from NY with flavors rooted in the West
Coast. It opens with aromas of citrus and pine with bread and
malt underneath. First taste brings more of the same with
pale malt, citrus, and floral tones . A slight herbal edge leds to
the finish which brings more hop flavor that is nicely balanced
with notes of yeast and bread. Well made and very drinkable.
Overall Rating - Very good
|Founders Devil Dancer
At 12% ABV this is one big Imperial IPA.
Sweet candy malts and alcohol lead the
smell with some pine, cedar,and tropical
hops complimenting. First sip attacks the
taste buds with pine, hops, and alcohol.
Somewhat syrupy, but there is enough bite
from the hops to round things out nicely.
Founders calls this a "triple IPA" but it's
more like a barleywine so be forewarned.
Overall rating - good
