Judge's Review: 91 Rating - Birthday Month Flowers and Fruit Double IPA by Wild Leap Brew Co.

Birthday Month Flowers and Fruit Double IPA by Wild Leap Brew Co. was judged using style guidelines provided by the Beer Judge Certification Program under category 22A Double IPA after being dispensed from a 17-ounce can into a pint glass.

Assertive fruity aromatics assail the nostrils and dominate the aroma profile. Floral notes mix with citrus and dark fruits in a pleasing fashion.

Pale yellow in color, turbid with a tight-knit bright white head that persisted throughout this review.

Judge's Review: 94 Rating - Alpha Abstraction Vol. 18 by Wild Leap Brew Co.

Alpha Abstraction Vol. 18 by Wild Leap Brew Co. was accomplished using the 2015 style guidelines provided by the Beer Judge Certification Program under category 22A Double IPA.

A plethora of hop aromas is released upon the initial pour and is defined by a blend first and foremost of passion fruit with piney aromatics with just a bit of earthiness in the background.

Light amber in color, cloudy (as per style) and topped with a big white head that held up.

Honey Project

This beer is a Braggot, or a beer and mead combination that we brewed to showcase these seasonal differences in honey. We then conditioned the beer on Earl Grey Tea to give it a light, slightly sweet, tea and honey profile.

Apple Brandy Barrel Aged Barleywine

Apple Brandy Barleywine is highly spirited, yet nuanced, with notes of bourbon, toffee and creme brûlée. It’s aged in American Oak with sturdy tannins and a robust ABV for the most analog of pleasures—like chit-chatting with friends or sauntering old cobblestone streets aglow in romance.

Bourbon Barrel Aged Barleywine

Bourbon Barleywine is spicy and a bit surly, a beautifully big sipper with soft hits of caramel, baking spice and oak. Spicy and impetuous now, with years of aging, this big brew will mellow with transcendent complexity and luscious mouthfeel.

Coconut Stout

Coconut Stout imparts decadent notes of macaroons, roasted espresso and homemade brownies. It’s creamy and deep with a toasty, smooth finish that begs for one more.
Like comfort food you can drink.

Honey Porter

With a sweet hint of honey, Honey Porter goes down smooth thanks to its balanced, robust, and light-bodied finish. This award-winning brown porter is brewed with Jersey Fresh certified honey and a firm malt presence, making it extremely approachable, no matter the season.

Jameson Barrel Aged Purple Monkey Dishwasher

Barrel-aging Purple Monkey Dishwasher has been a dream of ours. Getting to do it in Jameson barrels is the dream of dreams. Smooth notes of vanilla, butterscotch, and brown sugar shine through atop this beer's beloved chocolatey, peanut buttery goodness.
