3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft taster at the brewery. Pours a clear, bright gold with a small white head. Aroma of black pepper, pale malts, lemon, and apple. Flavor of black pepper, apple, and a vinegar-based barbecue sauce. Yeah, thatís unusual but somehow not ruinous. Light-bodied, with a spicy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. They promised peppercorns, and they delivered. Drinks like a light, fruity-leaning pale ale that just got a sprinkling from a pepper grinder. Would go well with a pulled pork sandwich.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy amber with a small white head.
Caramel and pepper, grain aroma.
Taste is a lively, peppery, spice heat alongside a minty coolness.
Unusual feel and flavor, but very good and enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample @ brewery. Pepper and light eucalyptus aroma. Hazy honey gold with a small white head. Tri-color peppercorn mix, fresh eucalyptus leaf flavor with a nice lingering heat. Light body, medium carbonation. I think you have to be a pepper lover to like this one, which I do.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster on tap at Party Town. Mildly hazy, mostly clear apple juice type color. Minimal white head, Bits of lace. Big black peppercorn flavor, really interesting and unique. Kind of spicy, really. Almost-spicy hot. Actually, itís a little hot. I love that they went all out on this. It tastes like whole pepper kernels. Sweet taste, light bitter, then that big pepper spiciness. Lighter body. Crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Huh, interesting stuff for sure. Way more assertive than expected.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of substantial black pepper, citrus hops and caramel malt. Appearance is copper with bone head. Flavor matches the nose; the black pepper is really powerful here, but the citrus is a nice respite. Palate is medium, sticky and soft. Not my sort of thing, but well done.

Draft to pint at Apocalypse. This is an APA base brewed with black peppercorns. Looks solid; a semi-transparent orange with sticky white lacing. Smells solid; hops, malt, and spice. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid spin on an APA.
