1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
EXTREMELY foamy. Last a long time too. I hate foam. This stuff continues to bubble like champagne. I hate champagne. Very bitter barnyard taste. Reminds me of some mooonshine dandelion wine we once made. Dandelions are bitter weeds. I hate dandelions. Smells like a portapotty. I hate portapotties.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was a pretty strong IPA. The hop flavors were high and the spice was a little bit much coming from the saison yeast. I guess it was to be expected but much more of a belgian IPA in all around taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught pours cloudy light orange with a thick white head. Aromas are spicy, citrus and funk. Tastes are similar with hoppy bitterness coming up front and then the Saison spiciness coming though on the finish. Very similar to Raging Bitch, but unique at the same time. A nice effort.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle - clean orange-straw-yellow hazy pour, medium lasting tan-white head. Pepper citrus nose following through on the medium bodied palate. Pepper and bittering hoppy finish. Definitely yeasty farmhouse notes. Good, but nothing I’d "crave" again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sort of a blend between a saison and an IPA, left it as being a mild IPA with some grassiness to it. I liked it, but left me a little confused. I’m all for hybrids, but they have to have some special taste to them to be notable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. A clear copper pour with a smallish off-white head. A wonderfully yeasty/funky aroma that features plenty of bubblegum, bananas, cloves, lemons, peaches, citrus rinds, candi sugar, coriander, pepper, and some grassiness. Floral. Relatively medium-bodied and kinda creamy on the way down. Some caramel maltiness upfront in the taste along with some peach peels, bubblegum, and hints of ripe bananas. A slightly drying grassy finish with some pineapple, light grapefruit, and plenty of citrus rinds. Nicely spiced throughout.
