3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop, and over the top herbal aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium herbal bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Not my style.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from the tap at the Mundelin beer fest. Pours a clear amber gold with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice grassy pine note with backing sweet bread. Flavor has a nice grassy note with backing light grains and a hint of light flora. Quite drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Mildly hazy amber color. Some off-white head, leaving some lace. Definitely WEIRD for an "American Pale Ale", not your typical american pale ale at all. Hops aroma are very grassy, cannabis, with some citrus and other weirdness in there. Pretty bitter, more than your typical pale ale, with a sort of spicy (sage and black pepper) bite -- this might be more accurately classified as a spice beer. Light, smooth carbonation, more dry finish, medium body... But the aftertaste isnít entirely pleasant. Definitely interesting and unique, but so grassy itís almost a joke. Gotta say, though, seems like something Three Floyds would pull (itís not normal!)

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2012 Draft to pint. Looks decent; burnt-orange with sticky white lacing. Smells alright; mildly hoppy and bitter. Tastes sweet and malty. Mouthfeel is average (at best). Not a good example of the style.
