What it claims. Still "natural flavor" taste but not horribly so.

Quite drinkable. Not sure what the name is. Menu here has it as P. Enhancer. Brewery doesn't even claim to have made it. ::sigh::

Stone Brewing by Marble / Odell / Stone Megawheat Double IPA

Mark L. is drinking a Marble / Odell / Stone Megawheat Double IPA by Stone Brewing at Starshine Brewery

All in all a pretty tasty DIPA but every now & again those damned thiols from the Mosaic (& others?) comes through in aroma & flavor.

Held up amazingly well. The bottle says Best by 6/17/15 and that's just silly. Was excellent; wish I had more.

New Holland Brewing Company by Dragon's Milk

Quite nice for a $8-9 bomber of barrel-aged Impy stout.

The Lost Abbey by Angel's Share Bourbon Barrel-Aged (2016)

Mark L. is drinking an Angel's Share Bourbon Barrel-Aged (2016) by The Lost Abbey at Broken Top Bottle Shop

A dark barleywine. Murky but perhaps shook up during opening--not by me. Lots of dark fruits melded with dark caramel. Nice.

Boulder Beer Company by Oak Aged Irish Blessing

Kind of a mess really.

Very nice beer. Perhaps my favorite C hop. Which sadly are still low on my pref scale.

Bend Brewing Company by Annex IPA

Mark L. is drinking an Annex IPA by Bend Brewing Company at Bend Brewing Company

Solid but these trendy hops are not mine. Allium.

Firestone Walker Brewing Company by Leo v. Ursus: Fortem

Hopworks Urban Brewery by IPX Chinook: Single Hop Ale

Mark L. is drinking an IPX Chinook: Single Hop Ale by Hopworks Urban Brewery at Starshine Brewery

Solid as I expected but not my hop. Bittering was fine and aroma even but flavor, nope. Glad I tried it though.
