Bishop Cider Company by Apple Pineapple

I don't know if this is hopped, but it sort of tastes like it. Very much like a V8 fruit blend cider. Tasty and crisp. Refreshing.

New Belgium Brewing Company by Dayblazer

Tastes like Foster's, but like, better. Slightly.

Boston Beer Company by Samuel Adams Rebel IPA (New recipe 2017-)

Chris L. is drinking a Samuel Adams Rebel IPA (New recipe 2017-) by Boston Beer Company

Honestly, this isn't bad. It's not particularly "rebellious", but it is bold in hops and fairly smooth.

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery by Lupu-Luau IPA

Nice light coconut note to an otherwise over hyped Dogfish Head beer. Which is a shame. They are usually not.

Green Flash Brewing Company by Spanish Trampoline

Chris L. is drinking a Spanish Trampoline by Green Flash Brewing Company

I'm not sure I see the relevance in the name. This is a tropical, bitter IPA. Brewed very much as a West Cost traditional.

Founders Brewing Co. by DKML

Chris L. is drinking a DKML by Founders Brewing Co.

Absolutely a unique beer. Massively boozy, but almost grossly sweet. Barrel notes add a woody, vanilla toast to a liquor-beer hybrid profile

The Manhattan Project by Reaction

Chris L. is drinking a Reaction by The Manhattan Project

Definitely a spicy yeasty character throughout. Very subtle hoppy citrus with a little hoppy funk. Smooth, but biting vegetal profile.

Lakewood Brewing Company by Barrel-aged Mole Temptress (2017)

Chris L. is drinking a Barrel-aged Mole Temptress (2017) by Lakewood Brewing Company

Very, very smooth and sweet chile chocolate bourbon notes. Thick and yet, easily drinkable.

NOLA Brewing by Humid Nature

"With citrus" is my new favorite. That's absolutely what this is. Unmistakeable, unidentifiable citrus in a wild sour. Tangy & tart.

NOLA Brewing by Syncopation

Chris L. is drinking a Syncopation by NOLA Brewing

Cleaner and more crisp than the NE IPA trend, but noticeably more bitter and a bit more subdued on the flavor explosion. Really good though.

Roughtail Brewing Company by Everything Rhymes With Orange

Chris L. is drinking an Everything Rhymes With Orange by Roughtail Brewing Company

Really juicy, lightly bitter, hazy and kind of creamy. Hoppy fruitiness bursts with citrus.

Brouwerij Van Steenberge by Piraat Rum Barrel Aged

Chris L. is drinking a Piraat Rum Barrel Aged by Brouwerij Van Steenberge

Kind of weird. Like a bitter pineapple spice note, almost. But I like it. It's really boozy too.

Rahr & Sons Brewing Company by Oktoberfest

Chris L. is drinking an Oktoberfest by Rahr & Sons Brewing Company

I really can't point to anything I loved or hated about this beer. General theme was positive and filled with bold body and spices.

Bell's Brewery by Pooltime Ale

Chris L. is drinking a Pooltime Ale by Bell's Brewery at T&P Tavern

Big bold, badass wheat, overly saturated in hazy, juicy sweetness. It is absolutely crushable, but, yet again, cherries don't do it for me.

Southern Tier Brewing Company by Nu Skool IPA

Chris L. is drinking a Nu Skool IPA by Southern Tier Brewing Company at T&P Tavern

Very hoppy and mildly tropical. The resinous mouth feel and mosaic hops are great, but they don't really bring anything "nu skool" to IPAs.
