Humboldt Brown from Nectar Ales, brewed with hemp.

I think this is a pretty good brown ale once it gets to be about 45 degrees. Some caramel notes, cocoa and nuts.

The Dudes' Grandma's Pecan English Style Brown

Very odd when cold. It becomes more like a traditional English brown ale as it warms. Yup, pecans and a little bitter. I give the edge to the Humboldt.

Stone Enjoy By 12.13.13 IPA

This is a very good IPA. Little hoppy for me. There are some fleshy fruits (apricots?), orange blossoms, and something green (thistle?).

I'd really recommend this to IPA fans.

Lagunitas Sucks.

This is a terrific beer. I'd say it is close to Pliny. There's a touch of bitterness and citrus fruits. Very enjoyable. As it warms, it gets a little more bitter. Choose your poison with it.

Actually it kind of vascillates on the bitterness as it warms.

High West Double Rye. This has a nice winter green to it and that nice rye bite.

Sample of Signatory Craigduff from a friend.

N: graham crackers, toasted marshmallow, citric
P: toasted oranges and lemons, cedar, cinnamon
F: long, with lingering wood and citrus

I am surprised. I've only had one other Craigduff this is actually quite good.
