Fruity with all the bitterness.

This tastes skunky, so I don't know if it's a fair review. It's a fairly clear taste underneath the nastiness at least?

Dry bitter IPA that nevertheless has some of the flavor notes of a juicy IPA.

I second this post but read in your best pretentious theater voice: “Served in a taster at a Flanders Red tasting event. The impressive front-runner, easily going toe-to-toe with Grand Cru and Charactre Rouge. Pours a gorgeous ruby-amber with a respectable head. The nose is the strong balsalmic vinegar of Duchesse, but more balanced with dark fruits and sharp acidity. The palate, similarly, hits the high notes of Duchesse (vinegar galore), but adds further nuance with cherry and other dark fruit notes (akin actually, to Alexander). Med mouthfeel. An incredible beer. Not one I had heard of before the tasting event, and one I was exceedingly excited to try. Stands up to the best of the Flanders Red scene.“

Good!

Still very good.

Can smell vanilla but don’t taste it. Quite sour and slightly musty, smooth tart cherry finish. Like it!

Chili and peanut are the primary flavors here. Disappointed by the complete absence of Sichuan pepper as far as I can tell, but otherwise it's not too far off from the Mexican chocolate stout flavor profile. Let it warm up a little before drinking. Shows every bit of its 11% ABV.

Could be a little more IPA-like. Unexpectedly light and sweet. Good. I may be underrating it.

Think this is the only kolsch I’ve liked. Light, pleasant, cereal and a little funk.

Smooth and mellow. "Rich and malty," said the Wife, "with a dark roast coffee ending." I was going to say that too. Would easily buy this again.

Crystal clear, with rich cereal flavor, but quite bitter. A brackish, hard-water quality to the mouthfeel doesn't help a whole lot.
A little too sweet, more than I remember from last time, a thin, insipid kind of sweetness. Thoroughly underwhelmed.

Tasty. A little bitter but that’s rye for ya.
Draft at Rincon Beer Company, Rincon
It’s this or Medalla. Which means, pass the Ron del Barrilito, por favor!

Sweet. Also I’m like 4 Ron del Barrilito 3 stars in so maybe rating system not entirely reliable.
Draft at La Taberna Lúpulo
A super-resinous hop-bomb of a hazy IPA, the kind of beer I intensely dislike, but the coconut really mellows everything out. I couldn't tell if it ever became a harmonious experience or if my brain kept switching between "yuck" and "yum" but I guess it averaged out to decent.
This... wasn't bitter at all? It tasted awesome. I don't know if my taste buds were burnt after two strong beers, but this just tasted light, sweet, and unexpectedly refreshing.
Pretty good, hazy grapefruit-citrus. Spicy rye on top and a somewhat bitter finish. I liked it, but it wasn't as good as the beer that came before it or the one that came after.
