New Release Beer Reviews

Lift Bridge Beer Company Irish Coffee Stout
90 points
Opaque brown color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate covered fruits, buttery almond toffee, and artisan coffee custard with a velvety, vibrant, finely carbonated, fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, complex, very long finish with touches of spiced coffee and coconut creme brulee finish. A decadent and delicious chocolate coffee stout; try as dessert.
Sun Up Brewing Company Red Flash IPA
89 points
Reddish mahogany color. Roasted aromas and flavors of chocolate caramel nut muffin, lemon curd, and chestnut honey and fig bread with a satiny, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, compelling, medium-to-long finish with notes of toasted dark bread, creamed honey, radish sprouts, and peppered 85% cacao chocolate finish. A supple and sensuous British style IPA with chewy malt and finely tuned, relatively understated hops.
Sun Up Brewing Company Trooper IPA
84 points
Minutely hazy amber color. Aromas and flavors of stewed okra and turnip greens, frosted lemon scone with grapefruit marmalade, veggie pizza crust, and mango-pepper relish with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, breezy finish that shows notes of rapini, saffron spiced nuts, and turnip finish. A savory, earthy pizza beer.
Sun Up Brewing Company Tanline Brown Ale
83 points
Walnut color. Aromas of chocolate nut cake, hint of teriyaki jerky, and buttery caramel with an dry-yet-fruity light body and a tingling, uncommon, crisp stewed tropical fruits, Elvis sandwich on German rye bread, gas station coffee, and sautéed mustard greens and canned spinach finish. A curious brew for the adventurous few.
Sun Up Brewing Company Bearded Blonde Ale
80 points
Gold color. Aromas and flavors of green apple cereal, caramel corn, and banana pudding with a supple, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a brisk finish with notes of arugula and butter roasted nuts and toast finish. A sturdy, creamy golden ale for the table.
