From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Left Hand Twin Sisters

This is an Imperial IPA (9.6% ABV) with a welcoming nose of
citrus/tropical fruits and toasted malts.  Flavor is all-Amnerican
IPA - zesty hops, orange peel, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple,
lemon zest, flight pine, and floral earthiness. Very well balanced
with the alcohol well hidden.  Dry finish.  Very approachable
despite being such a big beer so be careful.

Overall rating:-  Very Good
Southern Tier Compass

This 9%  ABV American Pale Ale welcomes you with a tall billowy
head of tight white foam and bright, sweet smells of citrus fruits.
Enjoy flavors of tangerine, pineapple and grapefruit nicely backed by
light spice and yeast. Cracker malt notes appear with a pleasing
sweetness. Rose hips and light grain lead to a finish of pine, dry
resin, and balancing white grapes tones.  Nicely done!
Overall Rating - Outstanding
Having sampled nearly 4,000 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!

RJ Rockers Son of a Peach

An unfiltered American wheat ale (6%) made
with peaches.  Aroma is understandably
mostly peach but some candy, malt, and
citrus notes clearly present.  Tastes of
tangerine, oranges, apricot-and peach at its
roots. Crisp, lightly dry finish brings a ting of
vanilla and almond.  A refreshing, not too
sweet fruit beer which is not easy to find.

Overall Rating: Good
