Good mouthfeel here. Has some structure and nice nuance. More malty/complex than most. Really appreciated especially for the style!

Fieldwork Brewing Company by Shoot the Moon

J. K. is drinking a Shoot the Moon by Fieldwork Brewing Company

More bold and flavorful than expected for the style and ABV. Like the hops(?) here. Really enjoyable. Kudos for a good Irish Stout!

Societe Brewing Company by The Butcher 2016 (Cellar Aged)

J. K. is drinking The Butcher 2016 (Cellar Aged) by Societe Brewing Company

Smooth and tasty though with some heat at the finish. More coffee and toffee than chocolate. Could easily be a go-to sipper for me.

Like a fruit punch that I left out too long in perfect way. Great on the tongue, palate and finish. Nice carbonation w/ it too. Exceptional

Love my IPA’s and enjoy my sours. Not sure I’m enjoying them together so much though. More competing than complimenting. Like to keep trying

Always fun to try these. Not quite for me overall. Dank and citrus (?). Always nuanced and hope to try even more New Entland’s.

Fieldwork Brewing Company by Shanty Town

559 Local Brewing by 559 CIA (Clovis Independence Ale)

J. K. is drinking a 559 CIA (Clovis Independence Ale) by 559 Local Brewing

These are Much too carbonated w really large bubbles.Overflowed w/out agitation like champagne. Not sure of the style either.Decent hops.

Moab Brewery by Desert Select Ale Tripel

J. K. is drinking a Desert Select Ale Tripel by Moab Brewery

True to the style but with something extra which is not common for the style. Clearly a triple, though more on the palate and finish. Bravo!

Lagunitas Brewing Company by Dark Swan (2017)

J. K. is drinking a Dark Swan (2017) by Lagunitas Brewing Company at Commonwealth

All wine on the nose & palate with some beer to finish.Really interesting overall but harder to enjoy in larger quantities.Crazy color too!

Modern Times Beer by Tetra City

J. K. is drinking a Tetra City by Modern Times Beer at Commonwealth

Really solid IPA as is now the norm for Modern Times.Not always fair when a brewery is consistently good; this continues to hit the mark!

Modern Times Beer by Luna Park

J. K. is drinking a Luna Park by Modern Times Beer at Commonwealth

Really solid IPA. Some floral on the nose w/ good sour $ unfiltered loveliness. Worth a good debate. Look forward to seeing how this evolves
