COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
5 Grass is a refreshing yet substantial beer that is pale in color and nicely hoppy. With this beer, we wanted to invoke the brisk, clean aroma of the desert. The recipe makes use of three unique hop varieties as well as some carefully chosen herbs and spices - juniper, sage, and Tasmanian pepperberry, among others - to give a beautiful outdoorsy scent. With it’s smooth clean malt flavors and a unique, complex nose, 5 Grass is like a refreshing walk in the wide open spaces.

In Aztec mythology, 5 Grass was the symbol of life. In this worldview, nature is not inanimate, but is filled with life. Every bug, every flower, every plant is alive and filled with a spirit; each relies on everything around it to sustain and create a living world. 5 Grass invites us to reflect that we are a part of this web of life and that there are forces in nature that can intervene in our lives, which we are best served by knowing and respecting. By knowing nature, we come to know ourselves

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a light amber clear color. Looks beautiful. Aromas of grassy hops. Hops are apparent but not overpowering. Spices add some interesting flavors. Mouthfeel too light. Feels like no backbone to the beer. That was its critical downfall for me.

A thick American ale, with some raw, grass flavors that seem to match the name well. Nice head and cloudy amber.

Nice thick off-white head very nice lacing. Very hazy orange color. Smells grassy and skunky like weed, actually pretty good. flavors of cinnamon, pine, ginger, orange peel and a little syrupy. A better than average beer but not anything spectacular. The smell got me excited but it didn’t deliver on the flavor. its worth a shot though.

Bottle shared by hopicide, thanks for the opportunity Todd! Hazy golden color with a huge coriander and other spice aroma. Sweet malty with a spice edge to the flavor. Interesting beer, but a bit high on the spice scale for my tastes.

This beer was pretty good. However it was a little too hoppy for my tastes.

Draft at Dutch’s in July 2012. Pours a clear amber color with a large yellowish off white head. The aroma and flavor had big herbal/spicy notes; sage, some peppery notes, grass, some toasted malts. The finish had moderate bitterness without much other flavor.

Smells are creamy and smooth, almost can’t describe it. Yes, from the first taste I say its creamy too! One of the more really creamy beers I’ve had for a while. Good creamy overall beer experience, yes creamy. Weirdly creamy, but interesting and fun. Liked this.
