Grain & Grit Beer Co. by Winter White Stout

Not my style preference but still, too flat. The label says with candy cane, cacao nibs & coffee which are all there but don't blend well.

A nice DIPA. Citrus & light candied peach with smooth sweet biscuity malt & a bitter finish. Not a juicy IPA but a solid one.

Meh. The 10%ABV hit me some & there's nothing offputting about the flavour, but it's nothing special. Some pumpkin, spice & malt.

Founders Brewing Co. by Backwoods Bastard

Boozy, but not unpleasant or mealy as some imperial stouts. Sweet bourbon, malt & caramel flavours. Not for everyone but 4* for the style.

Two Roads Brewing Company by Two Juicy

Not offensive, not impressive. I'd like more flavour coaxed out of these hops. There's some citrus here but juicy ... not quite.

Shakespeare Brewing Co by The Reckless Rooster

Tastes like my Dad's Molson Dry with a shot of citrus IPA added. Almost a regular beer.

Big Ditch Brewing Company by Hayburner

Nice subtle juicy hop bomb. Smooth & quite creamy mouthfeel with a nice blend of citrus flavours. No astringent bitterness.

Had it at CA in Hamilton. Great! Juicy Hazy grapefruit dominated citrus.4.5 Had it at Thin Man. Similar but missing some of the flavour.3.5

Thin Man Brewery by Westward

Very nice. Pine was present but very subtle & hiding behind sweet juicy tropical citrus flavours. A NE twist on a WestC style made in Buff!
