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 itís 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

Mohogany pour with a tan head. Aroma is spices. The spice flavor dominates the beer. I didnít really notice the hops. The head went away rather fast. The beer was flavorful though.

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

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 doesnít taste very good to me.

Spicy, hoppy, yet quite soothing with an almost chamomile like quality. But the bigger question is how does an obscure local like this end up on the list at the Airport Hilton with the big boys?

On tap, poured into a shaker. A juniper / spruce, woodsy note is fairly predominant on the nose, accompanied by a sweet watermelon and bubblegum combination. Thereís also some grass and floral notes in the background. It pours a hazy orange amber with a creamy looking head. An abundant, sheet of head layers the glass, and the head reduces down to a light froth, almost cirrus cloud like, atop the beer. A medium / medium-light sweetness combines with a dry, spicy medium-light bitterness at the finish. Lots of soft carbonation give the medium-bodied beer a creamy-ish texture (maybe a bit of an oily quality). The sweet bubblegum body finishes dry, and clean, with a bright juniper flourish.The aftertaste turns back to the bubblegum notes with a touch of resin dryness.

12oz bottle. Pours golden orange with a big, foamy beige head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is of hops, grass, caramel, and spice. Taste is of grassy hops, with a caramel malt backbone. Has a slight underlying spiciness. Lingering taste of grassy hops. Mouthfeel is light and slightly soapy. Body is light, and very carbonated. The hops are sweet, and grassy. As it warms up, more spice comes through. It drinks easy, and it tastes pretty good.

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

Bottle: pours a lot darker than I anticipated... A deep, almost coppery orange with a big, thick foamy light sand colored head. Aromas are mostly citrus but some grass and earhy spices too. The taste is a bit of a letdown, the hops lose out to the heavy malt flavors, and the spices donít really go anywhere... Mediocre beer.
