James M. is drinking an English IPA by The St. George Brewing Company

Smells dark and bitter. The taste is robust, malty and bitter, with just a little sweetness on the end for me.

Blowing Rock Brewing Company by IPA

James M. is drinking an IPA by Blowing Rock Brewing Company

Very nicely hopped, quite delicious. Super complex, kinda piney and citrusy, but it still has that kinda roasted malty deal going on after.

James M. is drinking an El Guapo Agave IPA by O'Connor Brewing Co.

Oh boy, this one smells awesome. Kinda grassy and bright, maybe some fruit? Flavor is almost roasty, definitely dark, but superb hoppiness!

Nice body, full of bright hoppy flavor. Citrusy and floral, the brew has an almost kinda sweetness to it that makes me want more.

Reaver Beach Brewing Company by Hoptopus

James M. is drinking a Hoptopus by Reaver Beach Brewing Company

Very pleasantly balanced DIPA! This isn't overly hoppy or overtly boozy, a perfect balance of bitterness and citrus, w/o too much of a bite.

Mmm, piney and citrusy, some of my favorite hop flavor combos. Nicely done Kevin S. This is certainly a new favorite of mine.

Very crisp! Refreshingly hoppy up front and nicely kinda sweet after. Fairly innocuous on malt, me likey a lot.

Big and robust! Very nice malty smokiness balanced out with just enough bitter to really make the flavor pop for me.

Mmm, super smooth. Very nicely done. The cream really stands out here with its light sweetness and little bit of kinda grassy-ness?

Blowing Rock Brewing Company by Blowing Rock Mountain Spring

James M. is drinking a Blowing Rock Mountain Spring by Blowing Rock Brewing Company

Wow, not what I thought. Clean and kinda hoppy initially. Fades into a wheaty and kinda citrus deal. Leaves a sweet aftertaste.

Smells very funky and golden. Reminds me of a strong golden ale. Tastes very much the same. Bittersweet fruit funk and malt. Not my style.

Almost no head. Very malty sweet aroma. Taste matches the smell, very malty. Sweet, but not overtly so, pretty good.
