Aries Cryptic #22

Here's the first cryptic of 2020! This puzzle started with 22-Down, which also happened to be the test solvers' favorite clue. I also enjoy the 12-Across and 28-Across clues, as they feature wordplay techniques that aren't so common in cryptics. Hope you enjoy!

Aries Throwback - "Imperial Exit"

Back with this month's Throwback puzzle, titled "Imperial Exit," which is a 78-word, 38-block puzzle. This puzzle originally appeared in 2018 in The Growler magazine, whose puzzle I write along with Victor Barocas. The Growler is a food and drink magazine and specifically a craft beer magazine, and this puzzle is very much at home in a beer-themed publication. Cheers!

January FREEstyle

Here's the January FREEstyle, which is a 70-word, 30-block puzzle. This puzzle started with the squarish 6x5 chunks in the top left and bottom right. As a keep-it-simple grid challenge, it was a worthwhile exercise. Hope you enjoy!
