A 90% transparent darkened amber color, low to zero carbonation, hearty grapefruit, piney, and caramel nose. Hits the mouth with a medium body, caramel and hops are nicely laced together, finish does linger. Good stuff!!!

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Growler courtesy of slimchill. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Smells resiny and citrussy. Tastes overly astringent and caramelly. Not much to this one.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Draught. Fresh hop nose, grapefruit hops and light caramel. Cloudy brown-orange with a thin patchy head leaving nice lace. Flavor leads with a strong but balanced bitterness and citrus flavor, with a touch of alcohol. Creamy palate that matches the intensity of the bittering hops. Nicely done.

Thick unfiltered amber red brown pour with a decent thick ivory white head and immediate lacing everywhere. Nice floral sweet tulips smell. Flavor is beautifully mild and balanced. It is hoppy and sweet and is not boozy or fanatically hopped. Great thick mouthfeel that just coats the tongue with a nice sweet mild hop blanket. Another home run from the Draught House.

lb4lb (2552) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Pours a gorgeous reddish amber with a light beige head. Smell is big fruity, gummy hops with house flavor and scent. Taste is fruity, hoppy and fairly bitter but with a good maltiness behind it. Good flavor and body. Nice beer.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Pours the color cloudy tea with very little head. Smells like mild spicy hops, and a bit of sour malt. Taste is very hoppy, floral, bittersweet, and spicy. Texture is thin but a little sticky. The palate is intense and just a hop explosion. A very floral hop aftertaste stays around for a long time.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 9, 2006
On tap at the pub. This beer is a hop bomb. Pours a murky deep copper color with a nice off white head and sticky lacing. Big hop nose with pine, grapefruit, and malt. The flavors fit the nose with a big malt background to help hold it together. Nice lingering bitterness. It has big body that coats the mouth. Well made beer..

I love it when they’ve got this B on tap. Soo good. Pours like hop syrup. No really. If there were hop tree and you could get syrup out of it it would look like this stuff. Pours a nice deep golden amber hue. Head is gone. Limit of two. Probably means that it is like somewhere between 8-11% would be my guess. As chad said very piney. Like opening up a can of Pinesol. MMMMM!!! Also slightly orangey smelling. Mouthfeel is off the chain biatch....So excellently coating and thick. Great brew I think

Bro is right, this beer smells like a forest. I really appreciate brewpubs that try new things, but they just took it a bit too far. this beer is ALL hops...kills the palate
