4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Im a sucker for a well made spiced beer and Mulligatawny Moon is just that. Lots of ginger and curry on the nose and even more on the palate. The Pacific Gem hops are very noticeable and play well with the spice. It literally tastes just like the soup. As long as you enter with an open palate, this is freaking delicious!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the pike street. Pours a clear pale gold with little head. Not sure how old this batch is but the nose wasn’t as strong as others have indicated, and the head was a little bit on the wispy side. Some of the volatiles may have dissipated a bit with this one. Pleasant candy ginger-ish nose from the turmeric, with that peppery cumin tang hovering behind. Other notes were more in the background. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramelish/husky malt base with some cumin and turmeric/ginger-ish-ness knocking around on the mid palate. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tried a sample of this, good thing, no one is drinking this brew in quantity. Very clear gold pour. Notes are pretty much just curry, but there are smaller notes of indian rice, jasmin, cayenne pepper, cardamom and smelly indians. Light bodied. Finish is spicy and chem’d out.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bronzed body, ring of head. The nose transports you to India. The aroma of a chilled daal, or channa masala soup. Cumin and turmeric make their presence felt. Medium-bodied with a strong cumin and turmeric component. It starts of bracing and lovely and unique, but after a few sips, the thin body can’t hold up to the strong spices and the joy of the novelty wears off. Too much turmeric, but worth a try.
