Russian River - Temptation - 750ml
American Wild Ale - 7.25%
Santa Rosa, California, U.S
The wait is over. Temptation batch 4 has finally hit my lips. Poured a shinny golden color with a sizable white head. Great aromas coming off this. Lemon is very pronounced and oak lingers. I could sense the "brett". I enjoyed just breathing this in. More tart, citrus flavors on the palate, along with french oak. Very light mouthfeel and alcohol is very well hidden. A little young right now, but should improve with age. I'll be stuffing a few away.

American Porter - 11.00%
Oregon, U.S
Wow. This is one amazing beer. Chocolate and coffee battling it out. I got more chocolate on the front end and coffee on the back. Has a nice warmth to it from the 11.00% abv. This is supposed to get better? 98 out of 100. Might kick it up 2 points in a year. Will see.

Caldera - I.P.A - 12 can
American I.P.A - 6.10%

Nice little I.P.A in a can. I recommend pouring into a pint glass. You'll want to release those citrus flavors. Gives a great hop kick on the finish. Perfect for sipping by the pool. 85 out of 100.

Belgian Strong Pale Ale - 8.50%
