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.

Smells are creamy and smooth, almost canít describe it. Yes, from the first taste I say its creamy too! One of the more really creamy beers Iíve had for a while. Good creamy overall beer experience, yes creamy. Weirdly creamy, but interesting and fun. Liked this.

Aroma is malts and a medium hint of juniper berries. The flavor is citrus, malts, juniper berries and a tangy/tart finish.

Draft at state and lake. Pours a hazy gold with a frothy head on top. Nose is herbal and somewhat spicy. Citrus and grass with some pine herbal notes. Interesting. Some woody malt and grainy notes as well. On tasting, moderate bitterness with more of the citrus and sage notes. Again, wood and light sweetness. A really neat beer and well structured.

12 oz. bottle. Aroma of juniper, grass, spice, mild smoke, some pepper, some earth. Definitely a different smell. Lots of pine and floral notes as well. Flavor of grass, pine, strong juniper. Very earthy. This is a quite different ale. Itís nice, though. Medium body, lively carbonation. This is certainly different. Interesting stuff here, guys.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Tap House Grill, Westmont. Dark amber color with a thin but sturdy head. I smell a bit of fruit and think at once of the Nelson Sauvin hops I was introduced to recently. I now see the spice list in the description, but at the time, the only addition I could think of was maybe some lemongrass. A lingering bitter edge on the sides of my tongue. Sunny and complex hop and spice note. Some grassiness, some dried, bitter hops. Took me a while to finally notice the malt in the background: crisp like a lager, but still fully textured and sticky on the lips.

The first impression of this beer is that it is way too much. Too much herbs, too sweet, to aggressive. The sweetness is berry(y), there is a lemongrass (like) and juniper character to the beer and it is all pretty strong. I wasnít sure if Iíd bee able to finish it. In the end, it was good. Tried with Matt and Nick at Old Town Social in Chicago in 2012.

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.

12oz bottle from Andersons in Sylvania. Orange pour with thin off-white. Aroma is herbal and earthy. Tastes are burnt sugar, orange and a variety of spices. Strange.

Draft. Pours a clear copper with a finger of white head. Aroma of grass and light citrus. Taste is light bitter. Grass and light orange citrus. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, awesome. Great summer beer.
