Ommegang Hopstate NY is a 5.6 ABV 33? IBU APA.  Appearance is orange amber and the nose orange citrus.  The flavor is a moderate balance of malty sweetness and citrus bitterness.  Mouthfeel is also moderate and pleasant with some good fizziness.  Hopstate is good but fairly unremarkable.  Ommegang is more of a Belgian brewer but they can throw down in this arena just fine.

Southern Tier Thick Mint echoes the famous Girl Scout cookie - Beer Street Journal

Southern Tier Thick Mint, a new imperial stout brewed with chocolate and mint, debuts in April, Meant to taste a bit like a Thin Mint cookie.

River Horse Hopalotamus • The malt base has held in rather well and creates for a peanut brittle and toffee flavor along with lemon lollipops (oxidation). Hops are pretty much gone except for light piney flavor up front and a touch of earthy resiny on the finish. Otherwise, it’s mostly a sharp, dry astringent flavor and a tangy sourness on the finish and aftertaste. I can’t imagine this is how the beer was supposed to taste.

Aroma of stale hops, a bit fruity. Sweetish flavor with malt, a honey hint, stale hops and a bitterish finish.

Boulevard Brewing's Tell-Tale Tart • Fruity, candied-lemon tart aroma. Tart cherry and lemon and unripened grape flavors come at the beginning, lightly acidic. Noticeably tart but definitely subtle by "sour" standards, very approachable. In the background, a sweeter backbone adds some balance, maybe prunes or some richer fruit. The back-and-forth, tart then sweet profile is pretty nice. Tell-Tale Tart cleanses the palate, delivers lots of interest. A "Tale of Madness!"

Today I picked up a bottle of Boulevard Brewing 's Tell-Tale Tart, "a slightly sour ale" playfully named after Edgar Allan Poe's short s.

CutThroat Porter ~ Odell Brewing Co.    Not quite a stout but definitely no lightweight, Cutthroat Porter is smooth and robust. Inspired by the classic London porters, Odell Brewery uses dark roasted malts to create a deep, rich color and flavor that hint at chocolate and coffee. It's name, Cutthroat Porter, is a tribute to the Colorado state fish – with its own rich heritage and unmistakable dark coloring.     5.1% Alc. by Vol.     43 IBUs

SingleCut Does Anybody Remember Laughter (A)IPA is 7.2 ABV and 122 IBU. Appearance is unfiltered orange-amber and the nose pungent citrus hop. The flavor is well balanced sweet malt and those fresh, fruity and resinous hops. This is very reminiscent of the 18-Watt IPA just turned up a bunch more. Mouthfeel is moderate and creamy. My two offerings from SingleCut were top notch and I'll be looking for any more I can find.

Drake's Hopocalypse - This is one big and hoppy DIPA. The hops just keep coming and they have a great range of flavor to them. And while the hops are definitely front and center here, there is more than enough malt to keep up and provide a nice balance to the huge hoppiness. Overall a very solid DIPA offering from one of my favorite Bay Area breweries.
