Beer #68 - Rhizing Bines - Dogfish Head


Rough pour golden orange in body opens up into a huge off white head. With how carbonated this beer is its probably best to pour gently. Lacing recess slow leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Smell is not of your typical IPA, both in pungency and the aromatics you pick up which are more reminiscent of a Belgian or farmhouse yeast character. Wet grass, hay, faint banana. Flavor follows suit of the aroma. Wet grass and pine on the front palate. Wheat, crystal malt, and that Belgian like yeast character mid palate. Followed by more wheat and biscuit interwoven with citrus and pine notes. Faint heat comes and goes on the back of the tongue. Crisp but not dry and medium bodied. Overall if you were to hand me this beer in a pint glass, say drink it, then ask me what style it was. I would never consider it being a IIPA. I think their 60min IPA has a richer and more up front hop profile.

My Grade - C

Beer #69 - Myrcenary IIPA - Odell

Thank you mcwilcr for sending me this amazing beer!!!

Golden straw color pour turns into a 2 finger head. Slightly hazy body and fantastic lacing. Aroma is pungent and intoxicating. Full of pineapple, mango, tropical fruit, soft background note of malt. Flavor is incredible with a lot going on. Melon and pineapple on the front palate that smoothly transitions into mango, really juicy citrusy flavors, and pineyness mid palate. Everything mellows into a wide range of citrus fruits in the finish. Tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, and a long lingering hint of lime. There is a very faint touch of heat in the back of the throat but the incredible hop profile masks it right over. The beer is crisp, fairly light bodied, and leaves the back of the tongue very dry. I might go as far as to say this is in competition for the best IPA I've ever had. This beer blew me away!!!


My Grade - A+

This is my favorite of all the beers I've had in the IPA/IIPA family! Glad you enjoyed it too.

Nah just been drinking a lot of homebrew so I can brew some more beer. I'll have to make up for it with a bunch of reviews the next few nights.

Beer #70 - Claymore Scotch Ale - Great Divide

Rough pour dark copper in body with amber hues turns into a tan colored head. Not much retention or lacing. Aroma is delicate with notes of earthiness, sweet maltiness, and coffee. Mild grassy hop character in the front palate fades into a sweet maltiness all the while maintaining a gentle underlying hint of coffee, nuttiness, and toffee. Faint bit of heat lingers in a long finish. Carbonation is pretty low and body is light-medium. Overall its a very mild flavored beer but has nice complexity to the flavor profile with all the subtle notes.


My Grade - B+

Beer #71 - The Sixth Glass Quad - Boulevard

Mahogany orange like color with a light orange and cream colored head. Very carbonated a light pour turned into half a glass of froth. Retention isn't very good though and leaves minimal lacing. Clarity is pretty hazy. Aroma is mild but with a nice complexity. An array of caramel malt, spiciness, Belgian yeast, a little banana and some dark fruit. On the first sip I immediately notice a fizzy sensation from the carbonation. It almost has a light bite to it. Flavor follows suit of the aroma. Wonderful upfront caramel malt sweetness, quickly followed by a slightly funky spicy and clove-like yeast character mid palate. Everything blends into one in a long crisp finish that leaves the middle to the back of the tongue very dry. As well there's a faint booziness in the background as well as this really subtle note that almost reminds me of vinegar that keeps gently coming and going. Body is full but again leaves the tongue very dry. Overall this beer is a great example of the style. If your into Belgians this beer is a must try.


My Grade - A+
