Eaugh, maybe it's just its place in the sequence, but this was jarring, sweet, and rubbing alcohol-y. I couldn't finish it.
Draft
Tropical-citrus "juicy" hop flavors of the type that are common in Hazy IPAs, however this one was so mild in all of the other aspects of hoppiness (bitterness, resin, sharpness) that it crossed over into highly unusual territory. A "juicy light blonde" is maybe the closest I can come to describing it.
Draft
Medium-tart sour ale with a bright, rounded berry flavor. Very light on the funk. I really, really liked this.
Draft
Roasty, toasty stout on nitro, bit of a warm, sesame-like overtone. Kind of like a Dragonstooth on nitro. Quite tasty.

Let's be honest, this wasn't going to make an impression at all after the other two.

Fast tangy finish but gets lost in a strong caramel sweetness.
Bottle
Malty, somewhat bitter, almost dry. It's a good Red Ale in my opinion.
Bottle at Hyatt Place Phoenix North
Close resemblance to Dieu du Ciel's "Dernière Volonté" which is one of my favorites.

I wasn't expecting such a tasty beer. Maybe I've had a bad run of "bourbon barreled stouts" that weren't some pricy $20/bottle special release but this one is smooth and very quaffable.

An enjoyable witbier. I haven't had a Hitachino Nest recently to compare it to, but I don't think this one grabbed me as much.
Draft
This was not as pineappley as I thought it was going to be. It was really good. Also, it was free because they had to tap a new keg and the server decided that ten minutes was a long time for me to be lounging by the pool without a drink.
Draft at Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua
Very much in the vein of the Wild Ride Nut Crusher - closer to Peanut Butter Crunch than a Reese's. Slightly below that other beer in overall coherence of flavor, I think, but still super-drinkable. And at least this wasn't nitro.
Draft
Good, solid, scotch ale that tastes like a scotch ale. I mean, I guess that doesn't sound particularly compelling? But I like solid scotch ales. Also I'm sad since this might be the last Naked City beer I ever get to drink.
Draft
Cloudy brown ale with a savory flavor not unlike saltine crackers or pretzel. Not a common kind of beer, and one which I really like.

Very nice, although you could have told me this was a chili IPA and I would have believed you.

Draft at Red Robin, Redmond
Draft at Mcmenamins Mill Creek
My memory is not good here, but I recall this being a blah, generic IPA.
Bottle
Definitely a Belgian IPA, has those faint peppery spice notes underneath the expected hops. It's an odd style that somehow always makes me think of rubber tires. Not as good as what I think of as my paragon of the style, Stone's Belgique.
Bottle
Lots of bourbon sweetness up front, with a bit of prickle from cinnamon but not overt flavor. Not too much to say that I didn't say last time.
Draft
Very similar to the Old Schoolhouse, actually. I wouldn't say there's anything especially tropical about this. Finishes less metallic and a bit more... cocoa-like, I guess? Malty, not sweet.
Draft
Quite dark for a brown ale; I'd call this a porter. Fairly thick, creamy with a lot of roasted coffee notes in the flavor. Finishes a bit metallic, but enjoyably so.
Draft
A light, pleasant dark lager with a bit of chocolate, a bit of roast, and a bit of coffee. Creamy and clean.
