New Glory Craft Brewery by Lemon Meringue Pie

Derek is drinking a Lemon Meringue Pie by New Glory Craft Brewery

The sequence of flavors is out of sync; trying to do too much. It's like a cream soda w/ a twist of lemon and a typical blonde ale finish.

Tree House Brewing Company by Single Shot (w/ Vanilla Bean)

Derek is drinking a Single Shot (w/ Vanilla Bean) by Tree House Brewing Company

One of the best milk stouts I've had - other than some roasty coffee astringency this is a semisweet dark cocoa espresso bean. Need a cookie

Fieldwork Brewing Company by The Meadows

Derek is drinking The Meadows by Fieldwork Brewing Company

Belgian yeast expression is quite pronounced - band-aid and musty apple dominate. Not as crisp or tart on the finish as I would like.

Monkish Brewing Co. by Atomically Batch 2 (2017)

Derek is drinking an Atomically Batch 2 (2017) by Monkish Brewing Co.

Soft, tropical, w/restrained yeast & smooth finish but a bit muted and never quite opens up to rain forest levels of passion fruit splendor.

Tired Hands Brewing Company by Milkshake IPA (Extra Vanilla)

Derek is drinking a Milkshake IPA (Extra Vanilla) by Tired Hands Brewing Company

The bloom of vanilla is nice but the overall flavor is almost a tart hoppyness - not as lush or rich as I was expecting and hoping.

Tree House Brewing Company by Doppelgänger

Derek is drinking a Doppelgänger by Tree House Brewing Company

Much more assertive hop profile than I remember - there's a pleasant bite that accompanies the peachy/pear broth on the tongue.

Tired Hands Brewing Company by Such Passion

Derek is drinking a Such Passion by Tired Hands Brewing Company

A tart but muted IPA - the passion fruit is there but the hop flavors are a bit too soft resulting in a nice saison profile w/out much depth

Drain pour, this shit is old - 11/9/16. Happy Thanksgiving! Tasted like bubblegum water. Will have to revisit a fresher version.

Greenpoint Beer & Ale Co by Vert Mont

Derek is drinking a Vert Mont by Greenpoint Beer & Ale Co

Looks like a damn snow globe but easy to drink. Melon rind & some plum flesh up front w/ a receding pine finish. Not spectacular but decent.

Derek is drinking a Bright (w/ Citra) by Tree House Brewing Company

I love Citra done well - the citrus flavors just burst & shine w/zero fatigue while blooming throughout the sip. A refreshing orange blossom

Wonderful soft mango flavors w/ a ripe stone fruit midrange that floats on the tongue. Solid.

A lovely fluttering of white peach & ripe papaya - so clean & balanced. Almost a frothy tropical cocktail w/light bitters. Thanks Bruce P. !
