3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
20110615 Tap at Bel Air. Slightly clouded, big beige head that sticks. Aroma is citrus and metal (coins) with predominant tangerine, lime, saltine. Very full bodied stuff with ample carbonation and quick but brisk finishing bitterness, not nearly as sweet as I expected. Hops rule the show here, but the balance is oddly keen because while thereís plenty of maltiness itís surely not grainy or bready. I assume thatís due to the rice used. Nice concept and well executed, and tasty enough for a second pint. For a strong beer, this hit the spot on a warm, sunny afternoon on the patio at DuClaw.

Draft. Pour was a nice clear golden color with little off-white head. Aroma of fruit, bread and some spice. Mouth is that of a mild IPA with some hop bite with some lemon finish. Nice medium body and was actually quite refreshing after battling the heat. Mild lacing throughout. Wish I would have brought my growler.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Bowie location on 06/03/11. Arrived at the table a clear copper/orange color with a skim of a beige head. A pleasantly fruity aroma of caramel, grapefruits, pineapples, lemons, and spices. Went down medium-bodied, yet crisp and refreshing. Fruity and spicy taste-wise. Solid caramel flavor upfront with plenty of tropical fruits following. Lemony, spicy, and a unique graininess throughout. Quite enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught pours dark golden with an off white head. Aromas of bread, and a little funk. Taste is IPA like and the finish is a nice bitter end with the Sorachi hops dominating. This beer has a great finish with those hops. Taste is slightly booze and bready with a dry hop finish. Overall, very different and inter esting.
