Didn't have much, but it seemed okay. Thanks, Brett C.! May or may not retry, depending on whether I see it again. We'll see.

Red Cypress Brewery by 100 Degrees

Mike Z. is drinking a 100 Degrees by Red Cypress Brewery at GB's Bottle Shop & Tasting Bar

Some mixed feelings about this, but it's late & I'm tired. Seems pretty light and drinkable. Hope to retry at the brewery, if possible.

Stone Brewing by Beavertown / Garage Project / Stone Fruitallica (2017)

Mike Z. is drinking a Beavertown / Garage Project / Stone Fruitallica (2017) by Stone Brewing at GB's Bottle Shop & Tasting Bar

Good! Noticeably from the west coast. Might be a little too pine-ish for me, but the bitter- and maltiness are acceptable. Light fruit.

Cigar City Brewing by Double Barrel-Aged Marshal Zhukov’s Imperial Stout (2017)

Mike Z. is drinking a Double Barrel-Aged Marshal Zhukov’s Imperial Stout (2017) by Cigar City Brewing at City of Orlando

The best of the latest Catador round, I think. (Haven't had LiL yet, though; soon.) Impressive balance & booziness. Smooth. Nailed it. 4.5+.

Thanks, Sam! Impressive. Aged beautifully. Excellent booziness. Lingers, but in a good way, in the aftertaste. Never thought I'd try this!

Jester King Brewery by SPON - Blueberry & Pitaya (2017)

Mike Z. is drinking a SPON - Blueberry & Pitaya (2017) by Jester King Brewery at City of Orlando

Good! ... but, IMO, a slight step down from Rasp./Cherry one. Not by much, though. Still, pretty color, great flavors & no acid/etc. Solid.

Mike Z. is drinking a SPON - Raspberry & Cherry (2017) by Jester King Brewery at City of Orlando

Wow! 4.5, at least. Prob. better than the '16, but not by much. The '17 seems more fruit-heavy. Possibly more funky. Outstanding! TY, guys.

The Collective Brewing Project by Suspicious Delicious: Classipied

Another that's at least slightly better than I expected. Balanced aroma; traces of all advertised flavors. The beer itself's light/smooth.

Superstition Meadery by F.O. Peanut Butter Jelly Crime

Mike Z. is drinking a F.O. Peanut Butter Jelly Crime by Superstition Meadery at City of Orlando

I like it, but possibly expected a little bit more/better. The blueberry Reboog Vitis is, IMO, better. Nothing wrong here, though. 4.25 +/-.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. by Brux Domesticated Wild Ale

Mike Z. is drinking a Brux Domesticated Wild Ale by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. at City of Orlando

Decent; doesn't really do much for me. Expected a little bit more/better. Not flat, but not carbonated. A little too sour for my preference.
