Definite s'more quality. Light chocolate/vanilla from the malt. Super easy. Thin, but not watery. Great with dessert.

Fuller, Smith & Turner  by Vintage Ale

Bryan R. is drinking a Vintage Ale by Fuller, Smith & Turner

Bottle says to age up to 10 years, but why wait? Taste profile is English IPA, more or less. Strong hop presence, but malt never shies.

Just incredible. Any citrus flavor you care to name. Some peach. That onion flavor my tongue always gets in today's IPA. Never know it's 9%

Melvin Brewing by Drunken Master

3 lbs of dry hops per barrel will do it. Get past typical citrus and onion and enjoy some strawberry? Reminds me of berry from fresh coffee

Hi-Wire Brewing by 10W-40

Bryan R. is drinking a 10W-40 by Hi-Wire Brewing

Wonderful stout. My preference is to lean a bit more on coffee, but it doesn't hide enough to not sense it. Great top to bottom

Boston Beer Company by Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced IPA

Bryan R. is drinking a Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced IPA by Boston Beer Company

Jnow Beer Geeks love to hate on Sam Adams, but it's a killer spring beer. Mango and hops meld together for a daylong sipper. GET IT IN CANS

Boston Beer Company by Samuel Adams Chocolate Bock

Bryan R. is drinking a Samuel Adams Chocolate Bock by Boston Beer Company

Nothing pulled in presentation. Name delivers as advertised. Chocolate flavor without cloying sweetness. Crowd pleaser.

Boston Beer Company by Samuel Adams Rebel IPA (Original recipe -2016)

Bryan R. is drinking a Samuel Adams Rebel IPA (Original recipe -2016) by Boston Beer Company

New recipe. Very Sierra Nevada. West Coast style all about hops, but. Itching overpowering. Super easy to drink several in a row. So...

Starr Hill Brewery by Warm Up

Bryan R. is drinking a Warm Up by Starr Hill Brewery

Like gingerbread and sugar cookies had a baby, but recessive genes made it a beer. Vanilla and cinnamon bread. Yum.

Westbrook Brewing Co. by 6th Anniversary Hazelnut Chocolate Imperial Stout

Bryan R. is drinking a 6th Anniversary Hazelnut Chocolate Imperial Stout by Westbrook Brewing Co.

A delicious beer, but I can't differentiate the array of adjuncts. If I focus, my brain says it catches vanilla and nut, but an A+ imperial

Lagunitas Brewing Company by Citrusinensis Pale Ale

Bryan R. is drinking a Citrusinensis Pale Ale by Lagunitas Brewing Company

There's a weird sweaty gym sock smell here, but toss it up to classic Lagunitas dankness. The orange tastes artificial, but still good. Easy

Fremont Brewing by B-Bomb (2016)

Bryan R. is drinking a B-Bomb (2016) by Fremont Brewing

B-Bomb is Arguably the best barrel-aged beer I've had. Each aspect of it shows and despite a short time in barrel, perfect flavor.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. by Golden IPA

Bryan R. is drinking a Golden IPA by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

In the pantheon of today's IPAs, it's not going to blow you away. Everything is just fine - you could drink 5 in a row. So...

Almanac Beer Company by Mandarina

Bryan R. is drinking a Mandarina by Almanac Beer Company

Not as a fruity as it's ingredients may suggest, but lots of effervescence and clean taste. All esters on the nose.
