Morgan Territory Brewing by Old Diablo

James K. is drinking an Old Diablo by Morgan Territory Brewing at Danville Brewing Co

Huge; sweet and caramelly, figgy, strong. Moderately bitter, but the malt dominates. Good, but a smaller glass would have been enough.

High Water Brewing by Central Valley Breakfast Sour

James K. is drinking a Central Valley Breakfast Sour by High Water Brewing at Danville Brewing Co

Exceptionally good: strongly sour without becoming overpoweringly acidic, wonderful lemony fruity flavors.

Track 7 Brewing Company by Golden Guava

James K. is drinking a Golden Guava by Track 7 Brewing Company at Danville Brewing Co

Huge guava aroma; more subtle in the taste, definitely fruity but also definitely a citrusy IPA with a nice bitterness. Really good.

Danville Brewing Company by Hoppy Hartz (Vic Secret)

James K. is drinking a Hoppy Hartz (Vic Secret) by Danville Brewing Company at Danville Brewing Co

Great combo of wheaty and fruity; citrus and pineapple with a mild bitterness.

Stone Brewing by Drew & Steve's Imperial Mutt Brown Ale (Spotlight Series)

James K. is drinking a Drew & Steve's Imperial Mutt Brown Ale (Spotlight Series) by Stone Brewing

Malt-forward, sweet and brown-sugary; decent bitterness hiding underneath it. Good, but in small doses; this glass was enough.

The Lost Abbey by Gift of the Magi (2015)

James K. is drinking a Gift of the Magi (2015) by The Lost Abbey

Slightly-funky bitterness and a very strong alcoholic burn: drinks more like a brandy than a beer. Took me a while to warm up to it.

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery by Hibiscus Tripel

James K. is drinking a Hibiscus Tripel by Hardywood Park Craft Brewery

The hibiscus isn't working for me; comes across more floral than tart. This feels boozy and much too sweet.

Fieldwork Brewing Company by Stars Hollow

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

Hazy, fruity notes -- mostly pineapple? -- with a overly lingering slightly-spicy bitterness.

Lagunitas Brewing Company by Brown Shugga'

James K. is drinking a Brown Shugga' by Lagunitas Brewing Company

Big and bitter and sweet and strong. It's not subtle, but I like it.

Hermitage Brewing by Blood Orange American Sour

James K. is drinking a Blood Orange American Sour by Hermitage Brewing

Lovely color. Quite strongly bitter orangey, and very strongly sour -- puckeringly so. Good, but in small sips.

Lagunitas Brewing Company by Willettized Coffee Stout (2017)

James K. is drinking a Willettized Coffee Stout (2017) by Lagunitas Brewing Company at Whole Foods Market

Super well balanced: strong without being overly barrelly-boozy, coffee-ey without being astringent, malty-sweet without being cloying.

Fieldwork Brewing Company by Saint Thomas

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

(right) Cloudy, juicy lemony flavor and bitterness; smooth, full-bodied, and not overly sweet.

Fieldwork Brewing Company by Gosaic

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

(left) Really nice: mild tangy sour, nice hoppy notes, not noticeably salty; very drinkable.

Saint Archer Brewing Company by Blackberry Gose

James K. is drinking a Blackberry Gose by Saint Archer Brewing Company at The Creek Wood Fire Eatery

Very mildly sour, kind of generically somewhat fruity; dull.

The Bruery by 10 Lords-A-Leaping

James K. is drinking a 10 Lords-A-Leaping by The Bruery at The Creek Wood Fire Eatery

Interesting: wheaty, spices meld nicely into a warm blend. Not sure it really needs to be either dark or imperial.
