|Defiant Orange Creamsicle
This beer according to the brewery is a 5.2% ABV wit beer. Most
drinkers however will say it tastes exactly like a creamsicle with a
splash of beer. Creamsicles are a mixture of orange and vanilla
ice cream. The downside of the beer, once you accept the
concept is the nose which is a cross between stale orange rinds
and cheap perfume. A fun summer drink best served ice cold.
Overall rating:- Good
|Captain Lawrence Seeking Alpha
An imperial/Triple IPA at 10.3% opens with an aroma of grass, tart
citrus, and sweet oranges. The taste is dominated by sweet, stone
fruit is dominant followed by oranges with a touch of apricot.
Bitterness is held well in check though there is a definite warming
sensation from the alcohol that constantly reminds one of the beer's
substantial ABV. Flavorful but slightly harsh on the finish.
Overall Rating - Above Average
|Stone Sprocket Bier
Stone calls this a Kolsch (5.4%) but it's
clearly not German in style. This is black, is
far roastier, and boasts a strong rye base.
There are hints of bitter chocolate and
Things are helped by a light touch lemony
brightness that is quickly subdued by a
noticeable smoke notes. Interesting but not
something I'd buy for myself but I can see
why some may like it.
