    Ghostface Killah ghost pepper beer - Twisted Pine

    Rough pour golden orange in color color turns into 1 finger off white head. Not much retention and little lacing. Spicy, peppery, citrusy, floral like aroma that you get from habanero and bhut jolokia chilies. Taste follows suit with the aroma complimented by a wonderful bit of heat. The pepper starts in the cheeks and the back of the throat then rounds out on the tongue and follows down into your stomach. Good carbonation and light in body. If your not a pepper head then this beer isnt for you. Ive found I enjoy using this beer to make homemade pizza dough too!!! I love spicy foods so my opinion could be biased on this one but this one gets good marks from me.

    Lectio Divina - St. Somewhere

    Orange/Amber in color. Heady pour but not much lacing. Smells of sour apples, old fruit, and a good funkiness. Not very sour but is nicely dry and tart with hues of earthiness, old fruit, sour cherry and faint banana. Light bodied and dry and very carbed, true to style. The strength in abv is well hidden within the tart mild fruit finish though its lightly warming. Obviously not a beer for everyone, SWMBO just took one sip and immediately voiced her disliking lol.

    Oak Aged Mocha Stout - Peak Organic

    Pours motor oil black and opens into a two finger dark caramel head. Solid retention and decent lacing. Aroma is of oak, vanilla, french roast coffee, and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is very complex. Dark fruits on the front palate that transitions into dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, and a mild nuttiness. The finish is more dark fruit, chocolate, and coffee with a faint hint of oaky vanilla that eventually settles into a lingering mocha note. Fairly low carbed and medium-full body. Quite impressed with the array of flavor is this beer. It all happens so fast and smooth its easy to miss some of the subtleties.

    Tocobaga Red Ale - Cigar City


    Dark copper with amber hues, an easy pour opens a frothy 3 finger head that's light beige in color. Nice head retention that slowly fades leaving behind a sticky lacing notching the glass after each sip. Very assertive ruby red grapefruit and tangerine tones in the aroma backed by caramel malt. A grapefruit tang jumps right out on the front palate evolving into a more juicy citrus profile mid palate accompanied by some caramel malt and a faint breadiness. I little bit of resinous earthy character joins the mix together with a strong citrus finish that's more tangerine than grapefruit. No heat or booziness, the 7.4%ABV is hidden incredibly well. Light-medium bodied with good crisp carbonation that leaves the tongue a bit dry. Overall extremely delicious and despite the alcohol content, a very sessionable beer.

    Why do the pics I upload show up sideways and small? When I upload them to the site linked in my signature this never happens. They show up like the pic in my first review.

    I've seen too much of that on this forum that I host all my pictures elsewhere... usually on facebook... and just use the img tags in my posts. I always unclick the box here that says retrieve remote file and reference locally. I used to use imageshack until I changed computers and emails a handful of times and my account info got lost in the abyss.

    Either way, good reviews. I'm surprised the pepper beer was any good. I had a jalapeno ale that I thought was just awful. I love spicy, and I love beer, but not together.

    Re: Craft Beer Review

    I'm considering doing that.

    Thanks... The pepper beer is certainly an acquired taste but the backbone of it is a good beer.

    Last Chance IPA - Weyerbacher http://weyerbacher.com/files/2012/05...hance-IPA1.jpg


    Rough pour opens this straw yellow bodied brew into a 2-3 finger ivory head. Retention is pretty good with decent lacing. Aroma is earthy, slightly spicy, some orange, faint yeast character, and strongly backed by caramel malt. Taste on the front palate is malty with a bitter hop note and mild citrus flavor. The bitterness takes the lead in the mid palate becoming more earthy and reminiscent of pith though still backed by notes of slightly bready crystal malt. The hops drowned out the malt in the finish with an assertive bitterness interwoven with grapefruit. Body is light, good carbonation, no boozy heat. Overall not my style of IPA. Just too much bitterness and not enough good hop flavor to balance it out, its mostly just...bitter. The Double Simcoe is much better.

    Interesting ghost pepper beer, HIM.
    There is a place around here (Flat Branch) that has a green chili brew... one of my favorites and I often get growlers of it.

    Re: Craft Beer Review

    I definitely recommend using it to make pizza dough. Pepper beers make killer dough or other breads!!

    Guava Grove - Cigar City http://beerstreetjournal.com/images/...ava-Grove1.png

    Pour this one gently because this beer is bubbly!! It took me a few minutes to fill my pint glass and despite being so frothy theres little to no lacing. Body is golden orange with red hues and an off white head. Im immediately confronted by an aroma of funky clove and green apple acidic bite, typical of farmhouse style, that eases into juicy fresh guava. A lot of subtle notes and flavor transitions. The front palate is more of the funky clove found in the aroma with a bit of banana joining the mix. The funk and clove both get amped up a little bit in the mid palate supported by an underlying flavor of guava. The finish introduces a little pepper and a nice tangy note reminiscent of the clean green apple tartness in the aroma. Not very sour but enough for a slight pucker. Mouthfeel is crisp and leaves the tongue dry, no boozy heat despise being 8abv. Overall a very solid beer and one I'd recommend to anyone who loves a good farmhouse.

    Mosaic Single Hopped Red Rye Ale - Terrapin

    Rough pour opens up a murky dark cherry colored body with a 2 finger peanut colored head. Decent head retention and a nice sticky lacing. Aroma is an array of hop character ranging from mango and citrus to a grassy, malty, and rye backbone. The taste is surprisingly malty though well supported by smooth citrus and earthy notes. For some reason I even get a faint hint of coffee in the mid palate which is interesting. The finish is long and is a nice mix of grapefruit and rye. Medium body and medium carbonation. Its hardly notice able but there is a faint underlying booziness hinting at the 6.6% abv. Overall an interesting beer thats well worth trying.
