COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We bring in the hops for this brew from New Zealand, where locals use the term “Boohai” to describe being thoroughly lost in a remote or non-existant place far from civilization. To us, that sounded like a pretty good place to be. These unique hops present a noticeable aroma of blackberries, Sauvignon Blanc grapes and pine which come together nicely with a complex blend of Belgian malts to make a deep, yet sublimely pleasant beer.

Canned @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear, dark reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Fairly grapefruity, citrusy, a touch nutty, caramel/toasty malty aroma that pretty nice. A touch fruity, fairly dull and bitter hoppy, caramel, somewhat toasty malty flavor with a bland bitterness on the finish. The aromatic hops seemed quite nice but the hops were just dull and bitter in the flavor.

arminjewell (6322) - lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz can, dark red pour with white, slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, nice resin, grass, slight berry notes, hints of spice. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, slight earth and spice, hints of a grass but pretty muddled, finishing bitter, dry.

Ernest (6318) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, cookie), moderately hoppy (resin), with a note of black tea. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A pretty plain hoppy beer. One-dimensional resinous hop aroma, but certainly some malt for support and no obvious off notes. A bit citric-sour in the mouth, watery, etc. Instantly forgettable but better than some of the other cans from this brewery.

onceblind (4472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2013
Clear deep amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of juicy blackberry, caramel, and pine mixing with a sticky smelling crystal malt tone. Flavor is roughly the same. Smooth and sweet with caramel and crystal malt combining with some blackberry, floral pine hops, a touch of melon, and an earthy caramel finish.

Steve_0 (2824) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Caramelly, bready, slightly husky, grassy, and straw in the aroma. Taste is grassy, caramelly, somewhat lemony, straw, and floral with a crisp bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. OK.

drjay44 (2707) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2014
12 oz. can. Pours a well retained, tiny bubbled, ivory head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy, medium amber (SRM 12) body.....nose is pine, toasted malts with heavy cereal, light citrus, vinous notes, balance to the hops....taste is slightly sweet, with heavy cereal malts, biscuit, mild vinous notes, leading to a moderate, short lived bitterness, balance to the malts....mouth feel, light body, minimal astringency, no alcohol, mild acid, slight carbonation. This is another craft beer experiment with hops from "Down Under". The malts are dominant, but rather simple in aroma and flavor. The hops add a bit, but are rather uninteresting. This is not a bad tasting beer, it just doesn’t have anything to recommend it with enthusiasm. BJCP 6/4/12/4/5

12 oz can from Evergreen Discount. Deep, dark red and clear appearance with one finger of white head, slowly dissipating and leaving moderate lacing. Aroma of biscuits, dark fruit, grass, pine, toasted grains, caramel and toffee. Similar flavor, malty, vinous, fruity, bittersweet and grainy. Medium body, soft, smooth and clean. Pretty easy to drink, somewhat enjoyable.

12 oz can pours dark ruby, almost brown with a thin, white head. Pretty oxidized. Carmel sweetness, subdued hops, oxidation in both flavor and aroma. Drinkable.

Can from Hazel’s beverage world. Hazy amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, mango, resin, hops and caramel. Bitter finish with hops, caramel and mango. Good amber ale.
