  • Beer Mug: Ballistic IPA

    Name: Ballistic IPA   

    Brewery: Ale Asylum

    Location: Madison, Wisconsin

    Taste: Ale Asylum's take on the IPA style has all the bitterness you demand without making you feel like you’re sucking on a roll of nickels. That’s because they use Amarillo hops, which are delicious, and a proprietary hopping schedule, which is none of your business. Ballistic IPA is a sexy explosion of citrus hop bitterness in a world of muted blandness.

    Name: Saranac India Pale Ale

    Brewery: Matt Brewing Company

    Location: Utica, NY

    Taste:  A Hop lover's delight! In the India Pale Ale tradition, this brew is very hoppy in both aroma and flavor from the generous amounts of cascade hops we use in brewing. Look for a medium body and a golden straw color.

  • Beer Mug: Imperial Stout Trooper

    Name: Imperial Stout Trooper

    Brewery: New England Brewing Co.

    Location: Woodbridge, CT

    Taste: Taste is exceptional. A lot of flavor, but not too much to be overpowering. A touch of bitterness, but it is well balanced. Though the alcohol is not overpowering, there is some definite heat on the way down.

    Name: Hoptical Illusion

    Brewery: Bluepoint Brewing Company

    Location: Long Island, New York

    Taste: Brilliant balancing of bitterness and fruitiness make this brew very enjoyable. Hops also a strong characteristic (hence the name of the beer). Good medium finish. Hops do come through, with some good malt balance. The hops are there and noticeable, so it is very satisfying.

  • Beer Mug: Moose Drool Brown Ale

    Name: Moose Drool Brown Ale

    Brewery: Big Sky Brewing

    Location: Missoula Montana

    Taste: It's chocolate brown in color with a creamy texture. A malty beer with just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet. The aroma mostly comes from the malt with a hint of spice added by the hops. Moose Drool is brewed with pale, caramel, chocolate, and whole black malts; and Kent Goldings, Liberty, and Willamette hops.

  • Beer Mug: Seriously Bad Elf

    Name: Seriously Bad Elf

    Brewery: Ridgeway Brewing

    Location: South Stoke, UK (England)

    Taste: Ridgeway Seriously Bad Elf has an extremely thin, white head, a very crystal-clear, old gold appearance, some bubble streams, and virtually no lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet toffee, sweet bread, whiskey, butter, and a slight nuttiness. Taste is of citrus peel, toffee, alcohol, grain husk, white bread, and a somewhat pine-oriented bitterness.
