2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Initial smell is strawberry to me then the mint kicks in. Pours orange/red. First taste is mint and then spiciness. The taste really lingers before turning medicinal. Some beers get better the more you drink. This is the opposite. Get’s harder to drink. Maybe mint and beer don’t mix.

Tap at the Regal Beagle. Lightly hazed deep gold with a small white head. Nose was candy sweet with light booze. Finish was candied fruits and a little boozy. I’m glad I only got a sample.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a disappearing white head. The aroma is very unique with mint and hints of berries and bread. The mint reminds me of Andes candies. The flavor is rough with sweet caramel, alcohol, overipe fruit and milder hints of mint. The finish is rough and very alcoholic. Hard to drink.

Draught at Lucky Baldwins Delirium Cafe, Sierra Madre
What a unique and intriguing beer! Peculiar but pleasant, packs a helluva punch. Menthol, eucalyptus, and other medicinal (but in an intentional way, not an off-flavor) flavors predominate. Strange and funky, I am oddly drawn to this beer..... and then the floor.

On tap at Urge Pub in Poway/RB. Hazy orange-amber. Nose spicy like a sour and grapes. Taste is big sharp spicy alcohol to raisin and aspirin. Taste doesn’t match the nose at all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. This batch is reportedly 13% ABV. Pours with a hazed orange body with no head. Aromas of spearmint, oak, cola, gum and dates. Flavors of peppermint, medicine, spearmint, chocolate, oak and a ton of alcohol. Very powerful on the mint. Interesting, but not in a enjoyable way. Dry, tannic, boozy and very estery.
