Nostalgia. Tastes like Cran-bic, Enigma, but no cardboard & flavor is still strong. No fade.

21st Amendment Brewery by Tasty IPA

Shawn H. is drinking a Tasty IPA by 21st Amendment Brewery at 21st Amendment Brewery & Restaurant

Session IPA, very mellow hop. I was hoping for more hop aroma but it’s definitely easy-drinking.

Cosmos Brewing Company by Buzzed Aldrin

Golden cappuccino ale, with Alaskan Artisan Coffee. I think Insight Banshee Cutter is the best example in MN though.

Cosmos Brewing Company by Planet XPA

Shawn H. is drinking a Planet XPA by Cosmos Brewing Company

Pale ale with heavy amounts of Citra, creamy body thanks to oats. Not quite as dumb as the slurry-looking NEIPAs, so this is a happy medium

Fair State Brewing Cooperative by Ping Pong Tiddley

Shawn H. is drinking a Ping Pong Tiddley by Fair State Brewing Cooperative

Slight chocolate. Low ABV, not too dry & definitely drinkable. Robust London-style porter. I'm keen on it. This would be excellent in fall

9.3% double stout aged on raw Ghanan cacao nibs & Madagascar vanilla beans with coffee added. Not bad but not worth $13/750mL crowler.

Sour but one-note. Not really the vanilla bean I'd expect to be playing a duo with the orange.

Forager Brewery by Twisted Branch: Strawberry

Shawn H. is drinking a Twisted Branch: Strawberry by Forager Brewery

Berliner weisse style ale aged on 100lb ofocla strawberries from Northfield. Not tart enough. Like a fruited wheat beer without a bite
