  • Manzanita Pale Ale
    rated 2.7 6 years ago

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 5 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 5 | Overall: 5

    22oz bottle -

    Aroma - light caramel and dried peaches

    Appearance - golden amber body, clear with a 1-finger white head, light retention and light lacing

    Mouthfeel - medium bodied, light carbonation

    Flavor - well blanced, but the balance is on the light side of both malts and hops.

    Overall - drinkable, a little bland. It would do very well to introduce someone who's never had a APA before to the style as it's far from aggressive.

  • Manzanita Gillespie Brown
    rated 3.6 6 years ago

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 7

    22oz bottle -

    Aroma - roasted malts, roasted almonds and molasses

    Appearance - deep chocolate brown body, semi-transparent, 2-finger beige head, big bubbles, light retention/lacing

    Flavor - roasted malts right up front, dark chocolate, baker's chocolate bitterness, with a medium sweetness to bind it all together

    Overall - this is a BAINO if there ever is one, because it has much more character and complexity than a plain brown ale. Flavorful and it hides the alcohol pretty well. I'd buy again.

  • Manzanita Chaotic Double IPA
    rated 2.9 6 years ago

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 5 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 5 | Overall: 5

    22oz bottle -

    Aroma - very subdued for a IIPA, floral notes with some light cattyness and hand soap. Had to swirl several times to keep getting notes.

    Appearance - burnt amber body, very light haze, 2-finger foamy head, average rentention, light lacing

    Mouthfeel - medium carbonation, medium mouthfeel, a touch of alcohol burn

    Flavor - caramel malt buries a majority of the hop flavors, but there is some vegetal bitterness in the quick finish. The malt hides the nearly 10% very well.

    Overall - a malt bomb that fails to satisfy the hop craving. While far from overly-sweet, it's too unbalanced for my liking in a IIPA. Could have passed for a malty IPA.

  • Manzanita IPA
    rated 3.3 6 years ago

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    22oz bottle -

    Aroma - spicy hop, orange juice, wet leaves with a good dose of plain sugar sweet smell

    Appearance - hazy pale amber body, 2-finger off-white head, average retention/no lacing

    Mouthfeel - medium carbonation, medium mouthfeel

    Flavor - well balanced with a nice citrusy/piney hop profile. Sweet malts and in abundant here too, and the high 7% abv is well hidden. Pretty nice.

  • Valiant Brewing Criterion
    rated 3.2 6 years ago

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 6

    On tap @ 10 East

    Aroma - dried pitted fruit, honey, lightly spiced

    Appearance - dark orange body, clear with a 3-finger off-white head, above average retention, light lacing

    Mouthfeel - medium carbonation, light/medium mouthfeel

    Flavor - light honey flavors, apple juice, a touch of straw with some yeast

    Overall - nicely sessionable, nothing really remarkable though.
