.Bitter. zero carb, at first I thought it was a bad batch.. and it may have been out of age, but it honestly grew on me and turned into a beer I somewhat liked. Sheep head ale is supposed to be bitter and spicy and delivers on both fronts. Not a great beer by any means, but to change my mind so drastically left a mark though I may have to try another bottle or two to be sure this is what they were going for..

Sheep Head is a nice IPA. The hop profile is delightful and the malt balance is prominent, but not overpowering.

12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice floral hop overtone with candied malt backing. Scent is most likely cascade or similar hop. Appearance is a dark clear amber or red with a thick off white slightly tan head that lingers. Taste is kind of all over the place decent pungent hop with some mixed up malt. Really kind of a mixed bag of a beer. Palate is lively on the tongue, slightly bitter sweet aftertaste. Overall, It’s kind of all over the place. Cheers!

Has a rather dull hop pine scent. Taste is an over whelming bitterness, nasty.

BITTER - too much so. Not very enjoyable on it's own - needs a formidable pairing to match this bitter hop-filled ale. Not any sweetness to speak of - tart with a bitter beginning and finish.

I’m not getting much aroma but it is a nice cooper color. Flavor is a pretty light roasted malt with a slight bitterness on the finish. Its a pretty good beer.

Tap. Dark orange pour. Aroma of citrus hops and caramel. Taste overwhelming malts.

Heathery herbal nose leading into a very tinny flavor. Palate is crisp but not intriguing. Hops are noticeable throughout, but hardly dominant.

Nice dark orange pour with a white head. Aroma is catty hops and a bit of resin. Flavor is sharply bitter, but not unpleasant. Good malt bill. Resinous and pungent. Pretty decent, but I have no idea why this is 7.7%

Good texture but syrupy sweetness drowns out the hop flavors. Some spiciness like a holiday seasonal. Doesn’t have the crispness I’m looking for in an APA
