Odd Side Ales by Orange Mocha Beer-A-Cino

Ben M. is drinking an Orange Mocha Beer-A-Cino by Odd Side Ales

Depsite golden pour, the orange, coffee & chocolate all come through, effectively covering up the ABV, which I would have put at 6.5. Tasty.

I rarely like session IPAs, but this one nails the balance between subtle malt and dominant but balanced hops. Thanks, Jason S.

Solid IPA, quite hoppy but with a balanced finish. Thanks, Jason S. !

Masthead Brewing Company by Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged Underverse

Ben M. is drinking a Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged Underverse by Masthead Brewing Company

Unbelievably good, well-balanced stout with rye whiskey overtones. The rye is smoother and less heavy caramel than a typical bourbon barrel.

Stone Brewing by Stone Tangerine Express IPA

Ben M. is drinking a Stone Tangerine Express IPA by Stone Brewing at The Beachland Ballroom & Tavern

Flavor is tangerine pith and pine needle finish, with almost zero malt. Not terrible, but too bitter for my tastes.

New Holland Brewing by Hoptronix

Ben M. is drinking a Hoptronix by New Holland Brewing

Lots of Mosaic hops, which strike me as more fruit/caramel than bitter, making this really easy to drink for 9%. Not unlike GLBC Chillwave.

A brown ale turned into a lager: plenty of caramel roast, and very drinkable.

Saucy Brew Works by IPA ASAP

Ben M. is drinking an IPA ASAP by Saucy Brew Works

Fits the name: slightly bitter and thirst quenching, but doesn't leave a lasting impression. Seems a bit lower ABV than it is.

Southern Tier Brewing Company by Concord Grape Gose

Ben M. is drinking a Concord Grape Gose by Southern Tier Brewing Company

Sharp sour / gose elements counterbalanced by light Concord grape flavor. Thought it would be sweeter. Very light / crisp for 8.3% ABV.
