|Great Divide Hoss
Billed as a "rye lager" this is actually a marzen/Oktoberfest. You are
greeted with smells of brown sugar, toast, and earthy malt. The taste is all
sweet malt with bread, light rye, and a touch of spice, Hops only show
up towards the finish, but are quickly dominated by earthy malt.
Overall rating:- average
|Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Wild Ale
This is hybrid between an American pale ale and a Belgian
strong ale opens with a nose of fruity hops, citrus, pine, and
light cloves. Hops spring out at first sip quickly followed by
sweet malt notes in a grapefruit citrus background. Tropical,
pineapple, peach, emerge as the Brett yeast adds spice and
fruit. The finish brings back hops and a bit of a dry bitterness.
Overall Rating - Very good
An American IPA, this amber colored brew
brings smells of orange and light pine.
Taste starts with a light hop presence,
resins, pine and a liberal dose of sweet
caramel malt. A slight lemony bitterness
comes at mid sip but fades to a mild biscuit
breadiness in the finish. Not typical of a
West Coast IPA and not special in any way
except for a great bottle label.
