3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at the brewery (St. Louis, MO). RBSG 2014 Friday Bus Tour. Pours a deep copper glowing hue, largely transparent with nice glow, deep hues and frothy offwhite head atop that dies to a ring, laces small. Aromas are centennial floral/grapefruit hops. Some earth, gentle toastiness, bread and mellow touches of carmelized elements. The hops offer some life up front, decent bitterness, touches of grapefruit, florals and earth. A bit toasty, gentle red type malt profile. Not much body and pretty approachable. Finish is a bit bitter, dry and gentle toast, soap linger on. Solid stuff.

Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear deep amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma combines sweet grains and grassy hops with a bit of pine bite. Flavor has a bit of citrus, pine and grass with a nice grain backing.

Pours a coppery, ruby red with a thick off-white head. Aroma is all hops and malt. Taste is bitter, hoppy..itís almost a minor league IPA. Flavor could have more in there, but itís still a decent beer. Not a lot of malt on the tongue, bitter back end.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear copper body under a one finger fizzy beige get that receded to a thin film. The nose is a mix of crystal and toasted malt and a light floral hoppiness. The flavor is fairly light on the crystal malt thankfully, much more toasty with some light floral hoppiness on the back end. Maybe a little light on the bitterness for me, but I guess it works for the style. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation and a fairly short finish. Not an especially unique offering.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
I've like all the 4 Hands beers I've had but I must have gotten a bad bottle of this. It was stored properly - had for maybe four months before drinking. It was properly chilled. But when I opened it the thing was a gusher. So much foam even with a proper pour that it was undrinkable for 20 minutes. One centimeter of beer and five inches of thick white foam. Flavor was off too. Hoppy aroma. But I got some off flavors in the taste. Very disappointing. But my experience with this is just one bottle and is out of accord with the other reviews. I'll need to try another bottle. Unfortunately I have to rate my bottle. So it's going to be very low.
