Up first- New Belgium- The Hemperor New Belgium has never steered me wrong...Until now that is. Fat Tire, Citradelic, and Abbey are all a delight.The Voodoo ranger is fine as well, Probably my least favorite of the four though. Hemperor- On tap at a pub down the street. Keg came in on Tuesday, so I was excited to try it last night. 20 oz pour that looks similar to their other IPA's. I pick up the glass and am immediately struck by what smells like someone has stuck a pound of weed under my nose. It's an overwhelming aroma of burning weed. I dive right in for a big gulp of the Hemperor, and can confirm it tastes the same way it smells. It feels like the pound of weed is now in my mouth, Hops are light and present but overwhelmed by the weed taste. Yet it goes down much smoother than the initial taste. It has potential, but fails for the most part. I'd compare it to having a fine slice of Wagyu covered with a dozen slices of cheese. There might be a great piece of meat on this burger, but I wouldn't know because all I can taste is a pound of cheese, No Gouda. This one is right up Bart's alley, but I won't be trying it again anytime soon. D Minus 2/5 stars is generous. Creature Comforts- Tropicalia Fair warning. This one is brewed where the devil lives. Another 20 oz pour on tap. The smell is inviting unlike the Hemperor. It goes down easy with a hint of Pineapple and Orange. This is a pool goers delight in mid summer. An easy drinking IPA that is light on hops and big on flavor. The pub has it in cans too. Which I couldn't help but notice is Blue & Orange, despite being brewed behind enemy lines. This one is a winner,Highly recommend. A- 4/5 stars. Reformation - Cadence This is their take on a Belgian style dubbel. 20 oz pour on tap , same as the others. Not much of an aroma, but there is a hint of pine there. It's a dark amber pour, but doesn't taste like your ordinary dark beer. It's light and refreshing. Perfect for a day at the pool or beach . This is a good, but not great beer. B 3/5 stars.
