With Wee Geech, we aimed to satisfy the hop heads out there, while still offering a sessionable and balanced ale. We employed the use of some very characteristic late-hops to provide maximum flavor and aroma without a tongue-scraping bitterness. The aroma hops have a very piney, citrusy, and grassy element which we further emphasized by adding fresh cut lemongrass late in the kettle. It also imparts a spicy ginger character that you may not be able to put your finger on. The malt body was kept simple, clean, and slightly biscuity to let the hops shine through.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of citrus hops and mildly sweet grain alongside notes of lemongrass. Tastes like it smells, but more citrus. Peel than citrus. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Good, but a little zesty.

Palate: Body is medium; calm mouthfeel. Overall: Not too bad, but a bit weak; good profile overall.

It smelled like skipping through a dew covered hop field. A goat piss appearance with a frothy head. The mashy hop taste leaves a long after taste the i would rather not linger.

Comes out of the tap a clear amber, not much head but that may be an artifact of the pour. Aroma is malty and fruity with a firm hint of hops. Flavor is mainly hoppy, contrary to the aroma, woody and a little evergreen, with some subtle citrus notes. Texture is smooth with good fizz, but not a whole lot of body. Definitely worthy of at least a try!

DrSilverworm (9090) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2012
On tap. Clear golden color, good off-white head, leaving plenty lace. Very nice grassy spicy hop aroma for such a light brew. Reminds me of the 5 Rabbits 5 Grass I tried a couple days ago, but less dank, more of a balance. Good moderate bitter taste. Good lighter crisp carbonation, dry finish. Great session pale ale, satisfyingly on the hoppy side. It’d be cool to see cans of this distributed. Would quaff again.
