Bottle. Pours hazy grapefruit-orange in color with a short head. Decent lace. Bright herbal aromatics of ginger, eucalyptus, and mint. Light-med sweet attack that rolls to bitter. Medium-full body, creamy-thick texture, soft carbonation and a balanced, lengthy bitter finish.

Amber with a light off-white head. Earthy, grassy, and floral with a hint of pepper and citrus zest. The herbiness is down in there, but not extremely prominent. Some distinct bitterness in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a murky orangey brown with a small white head. Aroma of herbal hops, citrusy resious hops, and some spices. Flavour of piney hops and tons of the herbs, which are spicy with a bit of coriander, horse blanket and pot, and some biscuity, caramel malt to back. The more you drink, the herb becomes more and more potent. Difficult to drink after a while, but it works in small doses. Decent.

Not goatey at all. Draught. Good looking with a lekker white head and good ringed lacing. Herbey aroma. Obviously there’s something besides malt and hops in this beer. If I were to guess, I’d say parsley and african coriander. Good on a hot day and not stinky at all

Big hop hit up front with aroma, then taste. Nice clear orange, minimal head. Lingering hop hit. Did I say hops and more hops?

On tap at the brewpub. Good balance between the malty caramel and the bitterness. A bit thin in the middle. The goat weed was not as prevalent as I remembered and as I was hoping for. Overall a solid Double IPA.

On tap at the West Coast Brewfest. Pours light amber with a decent beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a smooth caramel malt flavor with a nice transition to hop bitterness. The herbs are a nice addition, especially the lavender.

Tap at the West Coast Brewfest. Pours orange gold with a white head. Odd citrus/eucalyptus aromas. Med body. Flavor is citrus, weeds and floral. Apparently there’s lavender in this. Very nice.
