Anchor Brewing Company by Brewer’s Pale Ale

"Nelson Hop Blend". Crisp and bright with a nice lemon-peely hop note; a lot of flavor for a sensible ABV. Rotating series? Hope so.

Crux Fermentation Project by Gimme Mo

Easy-going, somewhat sweet and malty, mildly bitter; it strangely reminds me of a toned-down 90 Minute IPA.

Stone Brewing by Stone Loral & Dr. Rudi's Inevitable Adventure

Grew on me a lot: big piney bitterness, but with a more delicate floral note hiding underneath it.

Fruity -- lots of pineapple and orange -- but *very* sweet; too sweet for me. Sneakily strong, too.

Faction Brewing by Defcon III

James K. is drinking a Defcon III by Faction Brewing at Extreme Ale House

Interesting in comparison to the HUB Winter Ale: very similar caramelly malt flavors, less noticeable bitterness, more banana yeasty notes.

Easy-going: mildly sweet with a sharply citrusy bitterness.

Hopworks Urban Brewery by Abominable Winter Ale

James K. is drinking an Abominable Winter Ale by Hopworks Urban Brewery at Extreme Ale House

Malty, rich and caramelly with a big earthy back-end bitterness. Tastes a lot stronger than 7.3%.

New Belgium Brewing Company by Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA

James K. is drinking a Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA by New Belgium Brewing Company

Smells good, but I *really* don't like the flavor of this: fruity with a strongly acidic and long-lasting bitterness. Feels harsh and rough.

Track 7 Brewing Company by Poor Pitiful Me

James K. is drinking a Poor Pitiful Me by Track 7 Brewing Company

Very west-coasty: sharp, bracingly bitter but with a lot of flavor.

Fieldwork Brewing Company by PULP

James K. is drinking a PULP by Fieldwork Brewing Company at Whole Foods Market

Thick and orangey; kinda sweet with a bitter citrus finish.

Fieldwork Brewing Company by Finer Things

James K. is drinking a Finer Things by Fieldwork Brewing Company at Whole Foods Market

A good lager, but I really wasn't digging the Mosaic twang; kinda funky, kinda dank.

Nice: clean, crisp, hoppy, with a nice citrus-bitter finish.

Track 7 Brewing Company by Hey Girl

Like being hit by a large fruited brick: lots of passionfruit tartness with an underlying acetic sourness. OK but very unsubtle.

Track 7 Brewing Company by Knights of the Dank Table

James K. is drinking a Knights of the Dank Table by Track 7 Brewing Company

Thick and fruit-nectary; big alcohol kick; big rich bitterness. Everything about it is big; but it still remains well-balanced.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. by Hop Bullet Double IPA

James K. is drinking a Hop Bullet Double IPA by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Surprisingly sweet, with a big alcohol note and some weird bitterness: oily, slightly sour, slightly metallic. A bit of a mish-mash.
