Mike's Brewery by One More Pale Ale

Bouffee D. is drinking an One More Pale Ale by Mike's Brewery at Waima

Fine head. Woody and piney on the nose. Round and bitter but that's all I get on the palette.

Apple, citrus and a hint of raisin on the nose. Light & sharply bitter to drink. Not quite as big as advertised.

Renaissance Brewing Company by Discovery

Bouffee D. is drinking a Discovery by Renaissance Brewing Company at Waima

Some nice sweet fruits on the nose but hops less evident on drinking. Plenty of mild sweet malt on palette, somewhat English rather than US.

ParrotDog by ClippedWing

Bouffee D. is drinking a ClippedWing by ParrotDog at Waima

Impressive start, initial citrus nose with solid resin later. Doesn't match on drinking, quite a non-event, hint of sweet, touch of bitter.

Monteith's Brewing Co.  by Monteith's Original Ale

Bouffee D. is drinking a Monteith's Original Ale by Monteith's Brewing Co.

I remember it as better than this. Some malt, no discernible hops.

Founders Brewery  by 2009 IPA

You can't make a silky IPA from this sow's ear.

Black Dog Brewery by Bite

Clean and clear. Nothing special but not bad for an uncomplicated pils.

Black Dog Brewery by Chomp Pale Ale

Bouffee D. is drinking a Chomp Pale Ale by Black Dog Brewery

Some sweet tropicality to the nose but doesn't quite follow through. The best Womad has to offer.

Liberty Brewing by Hoptical Illusion

Bouffee D. is drinking a Hoptical Illusion by Liberty Brewing

Wow, that's different. Powerfully hoppy yet not quite fruity nor resinous, quite unique. Musty and aromatic.

Mac's Brewery by Birthday Suit

Bouffee D. is drinking a Birthday Suit by Mac's Brewery at TSB Bowl of Brooklands

Nope. Lowered the rating further given it claims to be a DIPA.

Birkenhead Brewing Company  by Beautiful Trouble

Bouffee D. is drinking a Beautiful Trouble by Birkenhead Brewing Company at Mt Taranaki

Beautiful fruit salad nose, almost candy. Great fine foamy head. Resin kicks on drinking, but with creamy mouthfeel.
