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.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 An interesting take on a red ale, hoppy, some blackberry. Red pour and a medium light tan head. Taste is piney, malt, and a bit of fruit.

Resinous, treebark, bitter orange peel. Not much substance to the palate. Not bad but not great.

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.

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.

Pours copper with virtually no head. Nose is hoppy, and malty with aroma of caramel and nuts. Body is almost watery, with taste of walnuts, and watered down malts. Easy to drink, yes. Work drinking, not really..
