Even though this is spiced, it is not too far off a regular IPA or APA. This is a cloudy orange beer w/ a white, foamy head. Its smell is vaguely spice and herbal and just a touch fruity. Nothing really jumps at me here, it just comes off as generallly hoppy. This is slightly sweet and malty w/ firm earthy, resinous bitterness. 5 Rabbit always do a pretty good job of using spices w/o ending up w/ some stupid beer that nobody really wants to drink and this is no exception. It’s not exactly knocking my socks off but I give them points for subtlety.

Great looking clear bright orange pour (draft at cheesies) with thin head. Fruity and citrus aroma. Tangerine dominates the taste Very dry aftertaste and mild hops. Decent

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.

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.

On tap at the annual CBS picnic, and self served to clear plastic with a fairly clear, orangy amber hue, a nice bubbles & cream head, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma was interestingly herbal and spicy,(I immediately picked up on the juniper and sage) with some light grain and straw notes. The flavor was similar, maybe not as striking, adding a moderate bitterness that was lingering, earthy, and incorporated peppery, and dry characteristics. Light to medium bodied and well carbonated, I applaud the unique blend of herbs & spices, and couldn’t have picked a better venue to display the beer. I agree with a Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer label.

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.

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.

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.

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. I’m getting tropical high mountain vibes with a malty backbone. I keep sipping it and finding something new. Very interesting.
