Beer Review: Long Trail Seaport Honey Ginger IPA


Beer: Seaport Honey Ginger IPA
Brewer: Long Trail Brewing Co.
Source: 12 oz. bottle
Rating: *** (7.6 of 10)
Comments: Like a jar of honey, this beer is golden and sparkling with a finger-width head.  It gives off a scent that is, yup, ginger and honey.  True to its name, the flavor is also ginger with a hint of honey sweetness.  The beer leaves nice stratigraphic levels of lace on the side of glass.  This beer is yummy, assuming that you like ginger.

Beer Review: Harpoon The Long Thaw


Beer: The Long Thaw White IPA
Brewer: Harpoon Brewery
Source: 12 oz bottle
Rating: *** (7 of 10)
Comments: Pours out cloudy blonde with a medium head. The scent is grassy with hints of citrus.  The taste of this beer is earthy followed by a hop explosion.  This beer is smooth and drinkable and a worthy addition to the Harpoon lineup.

 

Beer Review: Notch LP India Pale Lager

Brewer: Notch Brewing Company

Rating: *** (7 of 10)
Comments: An amber beer that has a foamy head and light carbonation, LP offers a strong floral aroma with hints of apricot and grapefruit.  The flavor is a pleasant mix of bitter and fruity.  Notch continues to impress with their well-balanced offerings.
