552. Bahamian Brewery High Rock
It's another full bodied Miller Lite from the Bahamas. Light, smooth, easy to drink, lacks much flavor. But, does have more flavor to it than an American Light Lager. Which, doesn't say much. Still, for a long afternoon of Day Drinking, this would do the job.

551. New Glarus Berliner Weiss
First, this was a nice gift from Wes - my roommate's dude, who had a dude in Wisconsin.
Second, amazing aroma! This smells so delicious.
Third, it tastes like a sour, and I LOVE that! The aftertaste is a little odd, but nothing terrible. I could drink A LOT of these.
550. Stone Saison
Not what I expected from a Saison.
But, exactly what I should have expected from Stone.
Very dry. Very bitter. Not a lot of flavor.
Can't drink a lot of these, like I expect to be able to with a Saison.

549. Upland Infinite Wisdom Tripel
One of my least favorite Tripels I've had.
Very dry and too harsh bitter for me. Hardly any good malty flavor. Light and easy to drink, but the taste is not something I enjoy.
This was a gift from my buddy Michael, I wish I liked it more than I do.

547. Scarlett Lane Silas Saison
It feels very full-bodied, but I'm not getting a lot of flavors from it. It's not bad, it's just kind of bland. But not weak and light bland, just not much flavor.
546. Sun King Popcorn Pilsner
Very light and refreshing at first, but a very dry and bitter finish. An odd lingering flavor too. Perhaps my dislike of popcorn has something to do with the odd reception...

545. Wilderness Pine Mountain Sour Pale
544. Four Peaks Oatmeal Stout
Light, smooth, and easy to drink.
The chocolate taste is very prominent in the aftertaste. Anyone who likes chocolate would love it.
543. Four Peaks Raj IPA
Hops and Bitters, but with a good flavor. I do t care for it, but I could see why lots of people would.
542. Four Peaks Hop Knot
541. Four Peaks Hefeweizen
540. Four Peaks Peach
539. Four Peaks Sunbru
538. OHSO Praying Monk Trippel
537. Dragoon IPA
536. OHSO Handlebar Hefe
535. OHSO Morning Brew
Goes down super quick and easy, the coffee flavor creeps in slowly on the back end, then kicks in.
If I liked coffee, I would love it.
534. OHSO Hoppy
533. OHSO Groovy Orange Pale Ale
532. North Mountain Brewing IPA
Really good, despite the bitters.
They change the name with each IPA batch, and we got to taste this right out of the fermenter.
531. North Mountain Brewing Serendipitous
530. North Mountain Brewing Caber Toss
529. North Mountain Brewing Hefe Endings
528. North Mountain Brewing CREEM Ale

527. Oak Creek Nut Brown
Very very light, almost seems watered down. Lack of flavor all together makes this pretty disappointing.

525. Four Peaks 8th Street Ale
Very light and easy. Goes down easy, has some spicy notes to go with it. I dig it, not my favorite of the trip, but enjoyable.
524. SanTan Brewing Mr. Pineapple
I'm not a huge fan.
I think the addition of the pineapple juice just makes this beer feel really heavy while I drink it. It doesn't go easy, it's like a very thick Hefeweizen. The flavors are good, but after two drinks, I'm already done wanting to drink anymore.

523. Kona Brewing Castaway IPA
Yet another West Coast IPA.
Very light, very smooth, but high hoppy-bitterness and very dry.
Still good, but not one I would drink a lot of.

522. SanTan Hefeweizen
Really good flavored Hefeweizen.
Nothing special, typical taste, but very enjoyable.
521. Maui Brewing CoCoNut Porter
Yep, complete lack of coconut flavor here. Just as disappointing as Stone's version.
Decent Porter. But don't bamboozle me with "coconut" when there isn't any.
520. Sleepy Dog Red Rover
Really good and enjoyable.
Drinks smooth, nice flavors, finishes a little dry, but nothing to complain about.

519. Ska Brewing Modus Hoperandi
Another American IPA.
The "West Coast IPA" is very prominent here in AZ. This very dry, very hoppy, and some medium bitters that hang around in the aftertaste. It's very full-bodied which helps deliver some good flavors up front.

518. SanTan Brewing Devil's Ale
A little dry.
A little bitter.
But nothing terrible. Really heavy-bodied, but not a lot of flavor to it. Fairly basic American Pale.
517. Lumber Yard Knotty Pine Pale Ale
Pretty decent beer, good flavor.
There is a reason it has pine in the name - very, very piney notes from the hops.
Goes down smooth and easy.
516. Four Peaks Kiltlifter
