Cutting Tiles (El Dorado)
Cutting Tiles (El Dorado)

Trillium Brewing Company
American Double / Imperial IPA / 8.50% ABV

4.49/5  rDev -1.3% | Avg: 4.55
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a can into my DFH snifter glass. I got this via trade from @Labret.

L: A light hazy orange color with a two finger white head. Great glass lacing, this beer just looks good.

S: Wow, loads of orange and citrus on the nose. Some tropical fruit, sweetness, vanilla and some fresh cut grass.

T: The citrus flavors rush in. Loads of orange and tangerine flavors mix with some pineapple, fresh cut grass and some peach maybe. The sweetness is honey but it really is very subtle as the citrus and fruits just dominate this beer. A bit creamy with some vanilla makes sort of creamsickle like the description says. Finish is silky smooth, but dry, and oh so enjoyable.

F: This beer is remarkably smooth and silky, but yet oh so hoppy. Full coating mouthfeel with no alcohol. Terrific.

O: Outstanding beer, so damn good. I'm so glad I got to try this as I was blown away. I can only hope I can get my hands on more of these Cutting Tiles beers in the future. Wow.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving: Can
No date


A:
Pours dark mohagany with a big fairly fuzzy khaki head the gasily settles to a cute little cap. Good retention; barely there lace speckles. (3.75)

S:
Smoky malts and mud. (3.5)

T:
Dirty, smoky, roasty malts with just a touch of sweetness. (4)

M:
Medium-minus body, pretty velvety with active carbonation and a sweetly smoky malt finish. (4)

O:
Good beer overall.
Just a simple malty dark lager. It looks decent. The nose is mainly smoky burnt malt and the flavor follows suit but with more body and sweetness to it. Well balanced between sweet and bitter. Really enjoyable even if not a life-changing, punch-you-in-the-face-with-flavor beer.
I will likely have this one again, I liked it quite a bit. (4)

3.51/5  rDev +4.5% | Avg: 3.36
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Serving: Can
Best before: Dec-20-2017


A:
Pours crystal clear, rich gold with a perfect puffy glop of white head that sticks like glue before eventually dissipating. Great retention; sheets of lace. (4.25)

S:
Balance between grains and light hop spice with some wet cereal sweetness. (3.25)

T:
Cereals, lightly grassy, Some peppery and herbal hop in the finish as it warms it gets pretty sweet for me. (3.5)

M:
Zesty yet creamy body with medium carbonation and a slight bite in finish. (3.75)

O:
Pretty good Czech pils.
There is just about enough of everything, it is fairly well-balanced and there is a nice carbonic/hop bite. My main gripe is that it was a little sticky towards the end and ventured into flavors that some pale lagers do but which I personally don't really love, but aside from that a tasty beer. Not too much of any one thing.
I would probably have it again, but I would have to say I prefer other pilsners.

4.15/5  rDev -0.5% | Avg: 4.17
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a can into my DFH snifter glass.

L: A beautiful light orange/dark golden color with a wonderful 2 finger white head. Great glass lacing.

S: Loads of pine, earth, tropical fruits, dank weed and some caramel malt.

T: The tropical fruits come first with pineapple and mango, some citrus with candied grapefruit and a bit of tangerine. Some vegetal and floral flavors mix too. Wow. The malt is sweet and caramel like which yields to the huge dank weedy, piney and bitter finish. The yeast in this beer is very unique and it's delicious.

F: Full, coating, prickly, great carbonation and alcohol is very well hidden.

O: An awesome DIPA that I hope we will start seeing more of in our area. I've not had a lot of Carton beers (not available to us previously) but this one was spectacular. I hope to have lots more of it in the future.

Crystal Springs Brewing Company
Fruit / Vegetable Beer / 4.90% ABV

3.6/5  rDev 0% | Avg: 3.6
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

seemingly already sort of popular around town, this new one from crystal springs is as much a juice or soda as it seems to be a beer, and while it tastes good, with a fine natural blood orange complexion to it, there isnt much beer going on. the grain is impossibly light, almost flavorless really, and the yeast never really does its thing either, the crispness of the underlying kolsch apparently overrun by the residual sweetness of the fruit, even if it is only moderately sweet in the finish. it pours an almost pinkish orange color with some fizz but no real head. smells sweet but natural on the blood orange, not overdosed, but on the edge of that. very little else going on in nose or taste here, the fruit and a little fizz, but even that feels under carbonated for what it is, and the whole thing, while somewhat refreshing i suppose, sort of underwhelms me because there is so little going on here. i know these guys to make great beers, and this one is not up to their usual standard. i can see the appeal, especially as patio season ramps up, but i need more beer in my beer...

First had poured from 12-oz. bottle, stamped packaged in Chico and label stamped "PKGD 01/11/17," into Sierra Nevada tulip. Far more interesting than expected, as less sweetness and more exotic flavor, with (apparently) the papaya tending to balance out the sweeter fruit.

500ml Keg at Weihenstephaner Beer Hall, Berlin (€4.60):
Another excellent beer from Weihenstephan and up there with some of the best pilsners I've tried, mainly due to the fact that the beer looked good and had an excellent palate; the taste and nose weren't bad either but nothing was really a standout from them. The beer was incredibly easy to drink with an excellent balance from the start and some nice sweetness at times that worked well with the subtle bitterness that featured throughout the beer. It's a beer that could probably have benefited from being just a touch stronger, particular with the nose but it was very pleasant from the start and one that I'd definitely have again.

Stone Head Co.
American Pale Ale (APA) / 5.50% ABV

3.38/5  rDev 0% | Avg: 3.38
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

On-tap served in a pint glass at Feat Lab, Bangkok.

Translucent orange amber color, it comes with thick frothy white head that well retains itself with good retention before slowly collapsing to a long-lasting foamy sheet atop and leaving lots of sticky lacing all around.

It is quite juicy in a nose with orange, lime, and pineapple as well as floral. Malt is there too with notes of toffee, biscuit, and grain.

The taste is quite malt forward with its grain, biscuit, and some sweet before hop joining in to make some zest and crisp with notes of orange and grapefruit as well as just only slight bitterness at the end.

Medium body with moderate crisp carbonation to bring some liveliness and refreshing touch through the palate, smooth through the mouthfeel, finish is dry.

Quite balance and easy to drink Pale Ale, no ground-breaking but no offensive.

i liked this a lot, a really unconventional sour beer, and anything new in the category these days is exciting to me. beautiful packaging on this one too. deep golden brew with a little hazy and an airy white head slowly fading. it smells like a baked peach dessert in late summer, more specifically a peach and maple cobbler or something, there is a strong, earthy, distinct maple sweetness to this that i super dig, especially on the nose, you would swear there is maple syrup in it, but it may be caramelized sugars from the peaches or something, its tough to say, but its mighty attractive. there is a tartness to the nose, but its not overly sour by any means there. the fruit is pretty pronounced in the flavor, but its so well balanced with all the other ingredients, namely a cerealy grain base and an almost toffee sweetness, in addition to a quick lactic bacterial souring, almost like a berliner, fairly clean, a little citrus, and overall pretty mild as they go, i could drink a couple glasse of this and not have rot gut. dynamic beer, with a little less of the maple i smelled in the taste, but a great autumnal peach flavor and a unique overall vibe. enjoyable and affordable sour beer, picked up in utah. id love to try other fruited editions of this, a blueberry one seems like an obvious choice with the baked dessert elements...

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

i always think a double pale ale is an interesting style, trying to jack the grain up to stronger levels, and add enough hops to balance and even come through it, but not make it so bitter as to fall into the ipa realm, its a tough thing to even want to execute, and so few do it well. thats why this was a nice treat, big thanks to my new friend dankacheese for sending this one out my way in a real delightful box! glowing deep orange, almost auburn away from the light, and a little hazy. huge white head rests on top, gorgeous. this is a pretty balanced beer for being so sturdy in all facets, and it is appropriately but not too hop driven. simcoe comes to mind with a pine and citrus profile alike, sort of dank and sticky at first, and then a little oily and sweet, but never particularly bitter. there must be other hops involved though too, as the citrus ramps up as it moves along. the malt bill may have a little richer crystal than it needs, but i like what it adds, and this is anything but one dimensional. short of refreshing, i could drink 15 normal daisy cutters in a sitting, and this is a radical departure from that level of drinkability, but the body isnt enormous, and the residual sweetness and alcohol left on the palate are reasonable for what it is. tastes super fresh, and i appreciate the hook up. this is about as well as a strong american pale can be done, its just a weird style. thanks for the hookup man!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Picked up a single from the Craft Beer Hop Stop 1-19-17 for $2.49. Canned in December 2016.

Beer poured golden orange with a nice white head that left lacing behind.

Nose is a wonderful bouquet of tropical and citrus.

Taste was mango, pineapple, grapefruit over a light malt body. Finish was a nice light touch of pith and resin.

Feel was medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall this could easily become a go to beer! Get it fresh and check it out if you like tropical IPA's!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

these guys have emerged as one of my favorite breweries in the country, now getting the automatic no questions asked buy when i see their beer. this one is a single hopped saison with huell melon hops from what i understand, and its as delicate and high quality as all their beer, juicy and grassy both from these hops, and perfect for spring, this feels right this time of year to me. pale and hazy wheat based looking brew, no visible sediment, and a wispy white head with amazing retention, cream feeling as it first hits my tongue. grainy right from the start, a rustic but fresh cereal complexion that may include some oats too, rounded edged and distinct. the yeast is also right there, slightly belgian this time, but also rather farmy, despite coming across extremely well refined, not wild to me really, but there is a non bretty earthy funk to it, although its clean as a whistle. the hops are sort of mild for being such a distinct tasting varietal, and i smell them as much as i get them in the flavor, which suggests more of a dry hopping process. like so many of their beers, this special ingredient is an accent flavor, not a dominant leader, and its subtle juicy honeydew, lime, and drying straw notes really make this unique without making it over the top, its all very natural, and the hops and yeast together are fantastic. excellent balance here, puffy expanding mouthfeel with effervescent carbonation and an earthy bitter grainy finish, with subtle belgian esters. wonderful beer.

these guys have really stepped it up lately, the last several beers i have had from them have been both innovative and fantastic, and this smoked stout is a gem. i like a beer that is what is says its going to be, and this one certainly isnt real subtle on the smoke at all. instead, its campfire burning, slow, mellow, rich, earthy smoke, not bitter or sharp or acrid at all, but very strong. it doesnt feel forced to me, and it also, interestingly enough, doesnt seem german or even european on the smoked malt side of things. there is some unfamiliar smoked grain in here, or else there is enough of this thick rich chocolate malt an roast to give it a brand new presentation. this is velvety smooth, heavily smoked from first sniff to last sip, but evolving and alive, like fire itself. some nice bitter burnt notes to match, but lots of chocolate too, drier by the end. toasted marshmallow, black pepper, dark tanned leather, the smoke and dark grain together have a lot of cool old worldy synergies. i loved this, loved its bigness and aggressive smoke but in a very mellow overall beer. top quality!

definitely one of the very best beers i have had from these guys, i didnt know they threw down at this level, but this deserves to be measured up against he very best barrel aged coffee stouts that exist in the world, it is in that class for sure, and a real pleasant surprise. pours fudge colored and highly viscous with long legs on the edges of the glass like a big red wine, well aged. there is a nice frothy head on this too, lasting and rich looking. aroma and flavor are fantastic, very fresh brewed coffee despite the barrel ageing, no green pepper or stale coffee notes at all, and its pretty strong, darkly roasted, and fancy smelling. plenty of chocolate here too, a little sweet in the middle with the vanilla and the oak, but earthy and bitter too, very high end. subtle molasses spicy sweet note in the middle, char from the barrel, a little bit of warming alcohol heat, and a wet tobacco quality, sturdy and highly appealing. so smooth on the drink, luscious and full, but not over the top, a mellow sipper for sure, but this feels as balanced as it tastes. the coffee lingers a little bitter, but the wood stays with it. really extraordinary brew, almost assuredly some of the very best schlafly has ever produced. very eager to try the other beers in this ibex series!

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bottle poured into a Green Flash Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden orange amber with a frothy light beige head that settles to a firm layer and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Resinous pine, spicy herbal notes, fruity notes, some citrus, big caramel/toffee sweetness, bready malt, and a little alcohol.

T: Old school DIPA all the way. Big sweet malty backbone fighting with a mountain of hops. Floral notes jump out first, citrus, lemon, orange, a little grapefruit, big time resinous pine, spicy herbal tones, underlying fruity notes, passion fruit, peach, a hint of melon, sturdy bready malty back bone, and a ton of caramel/toffee sweetness, plus some alcohol that elbows its way into the fight.

M: Full body, moderate carbonation, with a little warmth as it goes down.

O: The smell alone brings back memories of sitting in my long time favorite pub, watching pint after pint of this get poured, wishing I was into IPAs so I could try it just for the name. Years later it's nice to get my hands on it. Gotta say, it lives up to that name. Not my favorite DIPA, but a nice piece of nostalgia for me.

American strong ale aged in Heaven Hills Barrel for 6 months with vanilla beans added. The nose on this is spot on. Big barrel and super big vanilla. Flavor is big vanilla and you really get the barrel notes. Big mouth feel on this one. This was a great beer. I bet this will be lovely in a year or two of cellaring. Highly recommend.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter it has a black body and a beige thick foamy lasting head of an inch and a quarter. Smell of bourbon, milk chocolate, coffee, some slight cherry, and vanilla. Taste is thick fudge, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, vanilla, some espresso, lots of roasted malt, some slight cherry, molasses, slight caramel, oak, bourbon, and smoke. Mouth feel is full as well as body with a moderate carbonation. The mouth feel and look are fantastic, but the overly smokey, dry oak bourbon flavor is in conflict with the more fruit-y/dessert flavors of this stout, could have been better but still quite good and I would drink this again.

4.81/5  rDev +12.4% | Avg: 4.28
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Bottle from 2015 poured into a snifter.

Pours a murky amber color. Good amount of lacing with a finger light tan colored head that goes down very quickly even with an aggressive pour.

Smell is spicy!! Caramel and almost a vanilla pumpkin spice to it. Huge plum, raising, fig, apple, and brown sugar.

Taste is just as nice as the smell. The raisin and caramel is upfront on the taste and then the warmth of the bourbon comes in afterwards. More fig, brown sugar, vanilla pumpkin, and just a lovely spice to it in general. Has some sharp apple and a bitter pine to it also. Reminds me of fall weather.

Feel is spectacular. Full bodied and plenty of barrel presence to it which makes it a perfect sipping beer.

Overall I may be biased due to my love of Barleywines and especially BA Barleywines but damn this beer was truly a treat. This is just as good if not better than BA Backwoods Bastard / BA Bigfoot in my opinion and I would love to do a tasting of all three at some point.

Black, a little brown around the edges, with not much head that becomes a creamy film. Smells of cocoa with a trace of vanilla and brandy. Taste matches the smell - smooth roasted malt with a touch of cocoa, a bit of vanilla and a trace of brandy. Mouthfeel is smooth, a little foamy but not bubbling, with some alcohol warmth. Overall, a very good porter and nice to try a brandy barrel aged beer (a little subtler than the bourbon barrel aged porters I've had).

For a canned pils, this is a solid offering.

IDK, I like this beer.
canned 2 months ago (20-2-017).
I like this on the colder side. There seems to be a discernible centennial hop flavor, i don't like the feel in my mouth very much, but my mouth was a bit dirty + i had pepsi and cheap berninger cabernet, together, before this. Colder, maybe fresher, may be better. I've had it before this and there isn't a great convenient selection of beers of this style at certain hours. If they have the bell's smitten, buy that rather.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

First Half Acre offering! Canned two weeks ago and poured into a pint glass.

Pour is typical of an IPA. A light orange / yellow color with plenty of carbonation visible. Lovely frothy finger head and some nice lacing

Smell is of citrus, pine, grassy lemon, vanilla creamsicle, and that lovely dank aroma.

Taste complements the smell to perfection. A balanced bitter pine and citrus flavor with some tropical notes in there also.

Feel is lovely. Drinks like a bigger beer than it is. Not overly carbonated and really well balanced. Smooth and crushable for sure!

Overall this was incredible. Nearly a perfect beer in my book and one of the nicest IPAs I've had in quite some time.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.75

The can art reminds me of Coors, my favorite commercial beer.

It pours a nearly colorless 100% transparent body. A hint of yellow peeks through the paleness. Head starts off at 1 finger but fizzles as fast as it formed into absolutely nothing.

Aroma of corn and chemical; some DMS and clean water aromas. On the positive side there's a bright floral aroma as well.

Flavor is highly chemical - very much flawed and full of DMS. Cooked corn and cereal grains. Tin/metal. Finish is vegetal.

Feel is crisp with a cheap malt liquor hottness and chalky finish.

Overall, I figured this would be a better version of their light. Unfortunately this is Rockdale without all of the flaws boiled off. It's pretty heavy handed on the chemical and dms. It's a straight forward drain pour, definitely not drinkable. Glad I opted for the single 24 oz can instead of the $3.96 6-pack of talls.
