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.

Copper with creamy, off-white head / Nose of pine, burnt sugar, and herb / Light body, some sweetness and hoppy, a hint watery with only mild bite, and bitter finish / Bright flavors of cut pine, burnt sugar, juniper, and sage, with notes of orange and grapefruit / A pleasant, easy drinker.

At Rockwell’s. Slightly cloudy amber colored beer. Interesting herbed and spiced. Piney and peppery with a solid but appropriate amount of hops. Nice. Serving: Tap

On tap at CBF. Yuck spices! Too much spices going on, tasted like a spice rack of sage, thyme, cloves, lavender and rosemary. Didn’t enjoy it. Smells similar and is thin.

Solid. Lots of hops but with a funky car taste. Mild mouthfeel. Grass and wet cement. Medium finish.

lots of spices in this one. i think it’s ginger, maybe clove. I dont know why they called this a hoppy ale. Ive had hundreds of ales that were more hoppy than this one that did not advertise the fact. It smells like i just cut my grass, and not in a good way.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. I like grass, and I like the places this attempts to go, but it ultimately comes across as weird, like sugar in a health drink with a few drops of liquid smoke. Medium bitterness, full of promise, but it just doesn’t taste very good to me.

Bottle - good size foamy head, hazy dark copper color, good size tart tropical fruit like (not exactly sure how to describe it) hop aroma and flavor, fair malt backbone - pretty good overall and a little different (in a good way)
