3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler at the Schaumburg RAM. Okay, maybe itís because Iím chatting with the friendly brewmaster, but Iím really liking this stuff. That and the fact that a sampler "Curl" is $5, no matter how many samples are on it, and I have 10! So this is a derker amber color, and still has a good layer of foam although itís been on the bar a while. Again, my nose was hampered by a cold and restroom soap, so just a general yes on the aroma. A large pine and resin hop note that swims to coat my soft palate. In other words, a hop goblin.

Draft. Hardly no smell. Palate is watery and wet and not a full body. The hops arenít very strong. What I can taste is citra mostly gratefruit taste. Poor ipa

Firkin offering at Alefort. grapefruit added to this, making it much more citrusy. However, I didnít think the fruit complemented the malt bill, making for a confused palate.

1.1 Light chestnut color. Oily fine bubbled head. Slight mahoganyesque taste, nutty in that way. Almost like a light amber overhopped. Citrusy (spicy like grapefruit) hops complimented by a nice touch of alcohol in the aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Big Horn U District, pours a cloudy dirty amber with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of dank resinous hops, some herbal hops, and bready caramel. Flavour is a bit disjointed, with stale bready caramel malt and resinous hops. The balance isnít quite right, as there seem to be some strange flavours in here. Not a big fan, but itís not a disaster.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Ram - Kent. Amber in color with some off-white foam. Probably their best beer, at least of the regular lineup. Thereís a lot of pine and citrus rind character along with some bread and toast. Definitely more caramel than Iíd like, though. Pretty floral and slightly grassy, too. Decent enough bitterness.

Tap at the Schaumburg IL location. Slightly hazy golden orange pour with a very small head. Juicy citrus aroma and taste. Not super rich or complex, but quite serviceable.
