#434 Housatonic Rivere Sacred Grounds from New Milford, CT, United States
Score: 3.9 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 9 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 7 | Overall 8 |
Coffee Porter: Nose of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and green herbal notes. Deep brown opaque body topped with short-lived caramel-colored head which leaves a good skim coat and good lacing. Mouth is medium bodied, slightly creamy and quite fizzy. Flavor is complex,some coffee a bit of chocolate in mid taste, sweet near the end and then finishes slightly bitter. As often (it seems to me) with chocolate and/or coffee brews there is some hint of artificial flavoring. Not saying it IS artificial. Its probably my palette and something about the way alcohol, which is slightly present here, the chocolate combine.

#433 Kent Falls Delve from Kent, CT, United States
Score: 3.9 | Aroma 9 | Appearance 5 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 9 | Overall 8 |
Huge NEIPA nose ripe sweet tropical fruit abounding. Foggy medium gold body with minimal head and no lace.(this seems to be a pattern with KFB's IPAs.) Also another IPA with the can mislabeled as an Imperial Pale Ale, its 6%. They also mislabeled their Superscript IPA the same way.Mouth on this is creamy medium with very nice fiz. Flavor follows the nose and adds significant bittering in the middle, finish is quite clean. Also a lot of grassy flavors present. This is tasty! I think this is my first taste of Kveik yeast, interesting stuff. https://growlermag.com/rise-of-the-super-yeast-kveik/

#432 Kent Falls Superscript IPA from Kent, CT, United States
Score: 3.2 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 4 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Big NEIPA nose mostly pineapple, maybe some guava, strong citrus more tangerine than grapefruit. Standard medium yellow fully hazed body with minimal head and retention and no lace. Mouth is a bit watery. Needs more malt backbone in my opinion. (Also the can is mislabeled calling this an Imperial IPA, its not.) Flavor is nice but weak, leaves you wanting more of the same flavor. some lemon in the end. Pepper, a hint of pine, very clean finish with no aftertaste. Sessionable.

#430 Long Trail Brewing Little Anomaly from Bridgewater Corners, VT, United States
Score: 3.5 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 5 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 8 | Overall 8 |
Nose: Pineapple, bubblegum, cotton candy. Hazy pale peach colored body topped by a thin head with minimum retention and no lace. Mouth is moderate bodied with a lot of fizz. So, OK, this is a low alcohol and lower calorie effort. This is more drinkable than most such brews. Tropical notes in the middle followed by some sour and finishes dry with a bit of bitter. Some pineapple, some lemon pith, some pepper, some grass. Giving flavor an 8 (if it was a regular IPA it would be a 5). While being lower in alcohol than most of the low alcs I have tried this one does NOT just taste like hop water so for that...well done.

#429 Goose Island Next Coast IPA from Chicago, IL, United States
Score: 3.8 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 9 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 8 | Overall 7 |
Moderate nose of pine, grass, barnyard funk, cracker, yeast. Clear medium gold body topped with serious pillow and very good lacing.Good tingle on the tongue, medium bodied. An unusual slight sourness for an IPA befitting of the funk in the nose, almost tastes like a pils. Touch of pine, touch of tobacco, bit of pepper. I'm not getting much of the tropical claimed. I like it but its very NOT an IPA profile.

#428 18-Watt IPA from ASTORIA, NY, United States
Score: 3.4 | Aroma 9 | Appearance 6 | Mouthfeel 4 | Flavor 7 | Overall 8 |
Nose: Pineapple, tangerine, lemon, lawn clippings. Medium gold, hazed, good white head, no lace. Mouth is a bit thin and a bit fizzy. Sour orange rind, lemon zest, funked up grass... finish is more like a decent pilsner.An odd duck but quite drinkable/sessionable.

#427 Sierra Nevada 40 Hoppy Anniversary Ale from Chico, CA, United States
Score: 4 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 9 | Flavor 8 | Overall 8 |
Strong nose, lemon peal, pine sap, touch of sourdough. Slightly hazed medium copper body topped by a foamy white head with decent retention and faint lace. Effervescence continues up side of glass. Mouth is full-some and slightly creamy, good tingle. Flavor is straightforward, well balanced, bit of pine, hint of tropical notes, slightly sour and nicely bitter finish.

#426 Elysian Contact Haze from Seattle, WA, United States
Score: 3.3 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 5 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Long lasting tropical nose ... guava, lemon, hint of cereal. Very pale yellow body with small head leaves a white skim coat with little lacing. Thin mouth, almost watery, with decent tingle. Tangerine, White Pepper,some pith on the finish. Flavors go away fast leaving just a touch of fruit on the palate. This really feels like a low cal low alcohol brew and yet it isn't. Kind of odd. Not objectionable, sessionable.

#425 Gentle on my Mind from New Milford, CT, United States
Score: 3.6 | Aroma 6 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 8 | Overall 8 |
Not much nose here, faintly tropical fruit...gentle perhaps. Soft gold body is well hazed (NEIPA) topped by a frothy white head that has little lace but leaves a lasting skim coat. Mouth is creamy and slightly under-carbonated. This is indeed gentle in the flavor. Very very drinkable with no outstanding qualities. Nice slightly bitter finish, subtle all the way, unique. IF this is what they set out to do (as the name suggests) then they did it well.
