3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This brew pours a copper-amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that recedes gradually. Sticky partial rings of lacing on the glass. Floral aroma with some malt and fruit in the background. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, roast malt and subtle chili peppers. The finish is peppery with a juniper and malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Crisp light copper and golden coloured body with a bit of a bronzed glow and a thin, half a centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright grassy and grapefruity hops with a pinch of malt and some light sugars noticeable as well. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a very mild hop flavour, some touches of malt and not much else at all - very bland and weak. Aftertaste shows some very mild sweetness and grassy hop notes, but not much to write of. Overall, a pretty poor offering that is bland, uninspired and very simplex - no deep flavours at all or anything after the first five seconds. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Binnyís in Chicago (South Loop), Illinois on 21-August-2013 for US$1.67 sampled at home in Washington on 04-November-2013.

Was expecting a little more hop to this one, considering the name. Pours a nice clear amber color. Spices really take the forefront here. Getting some savory ginger type notes. Some pepper two. A little metallic note as well. Tasty, just mis-named for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. Poured a rich amber with minimal carbonation and a frothy, off-white head. Spiced grass aroma. Not enough hops for the "Hoppy Ale" on the label. Had an unusual floral, grassy taste. Hard to describe, but Iím not a fan of this beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from one of the cousins from the barrio. Pours pale amber with offwhite head and decent lacing. Nose is caramel and grass. Sip introduces herbs and original flavors. Fairly sweet and not as hoppy as grass would suggest. Iím getting tropical high mountain vibes with a malty backbone. I keep sipping it and finding something new. Very interesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft from the Grand Slam stand at Great American Ballpark. Pours a cloudy dull orange with a small white head. Notes of juniper, sage, pepper, grass, florals, orange peel, and amber malts. Light-medium bodied, with a spicy, bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Interesting beer. The spices really stand out.

It's fine ... A nice sweet taste to it. Would like more all around hop play.
