America’s 40 Most Delicious Beers
35. Yellow Rose
> Brewery: The Lone Pint Brewery (Texas)
> Beer Advocate avg. rating: 4.41 out of 5
Formerly called Pioneer Yellow Rose. Full-bodied and malty, with an abundance of fruity hops; the nose is particularly attractive.
34. Modus Hoperandi
> Brewery: Ska Brewing Co. (Colorado)
> Beer Advocate avg. rating: 4.1 out of 5
A smooth, almost elegant American-style IPA, as forthrightly hoppy as its name would suggest, with a rich mouth-feel and a nice bitter finish.
33. Vicky Virago
> Brewery: Resident Culture Brewing Company (North Carolina)
> Beer Advocate avg. rating: 4.52 out of 5
Ranked “world class” by Beer Advocate; tropical fruit in the nose, rich and citrusy on the palate; tastes deceptively soft for its 8.50% ABV. (Resident Culture is known for its imaginative beer names — Whatever You Feel Just Dance It, The Inevitability of Change, Inked in the Womb, Quantum Wobble, etc.)
> Brewery: Night Shift Brewing (Massachusetts)
> Beer Advocate avg. rating: 4.13 out of 5
A classic New England-style IPA, with assorted citrus and tropical fruits in the nose, with more fruit and some spice in the yeasty flavor.
31. Saison de Banc Vert
> Brewery: Green Bench Brewing Co. (Florida)
> Beer Advocate avg. rating: 3.83 out of 5
A Belgian-influenced saison (farmhouse ale), earthy and fruity, with a crisp, dry finish.
