Craft Beer & Brewing: Radial Spines 98/100

“White-bread malty sweetness balances the hops. Luscious, medium body. Finishes perfectly balanced, inviting the next sip.”

Craft Beer & Brewing: STOP - 87/100

“Lemon citrus, dank and catty, fresh and resinous. Background caramel malt. Flavor shows significant malt sweetness, which complements the musky hops”

Craft Beer & Brewing: Peach Frontside - 92/100

“A melange of floral, citrus, and herbal hops in the off-dry finish. A very present bitterness is slightly tempered by the soft fruity component. Complex and interesting.”

Craft Beer & Brewing: Stratadactyl - 95/100

“Aroma of Juicy Fruit, coconut, pineapple, passionfruit, earthy pine. Well executed. Very enjoyable. Nicely put together.”

Craft Beer & Brewing: Zona - 94/100

“Sweet malt up front but thin, delicate on the palate, with slight lime-pepper hop flavor. Goes crisp and dry. Easy drinking. Nice hop character.”

Craft Beer & Brewing: Super Beaker - 93/100

““Light tropical notes of mango and lemon-lime provide an aromatic greeting….”

Craft Beer & Brewing: Midnight Run 92/100

“Nutty, caramel-forward coffee notes on the nose present intensely with apparent sweetness but the sip doesn’t indulge. Light and nimble, despite the strong coffee and roast.”

Craft Beer & Brewing: Sacrifices - 90/100

“Big chocolate nose, braced by spicy bourbon, raisin. The sip pushes sweeter, amplifying raisin and fig. Vanilla-caramel note lingers deep into the finish.”

Craft Beer & Brewing: Billet 88/100

Fresh, woody hop flavor, with medium-low bitterness that lets malt flavors shine: pleasant bready sweetness, lightly toasted, lingering pleasantly. Smooth and malty.”

Craft Beer & Brewing: Alma - 86/100

“Light and slightly sweet with a soft funk and cantaloupe/honeydew-melon notes. The gentle acidity is well-balanced with the funk and sweetness making for a flavorful (if a touch sweet) sipper.”
