hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle... Hazy light-yellow pour with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The bouquet is a spicy, grainy fusion of coriander, wheat and grains of paradise. Medium-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is almost painfully bitter with only a trace of acidity. Bone-dry finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2013
On tap at the source last weekend, and then served from a growler into a Forest & Main pint glass. Pours a clear golden with visible carbonation. Nice white head with a good retention time and nice lacing on the way down. The nose is slightly grainy and backed by a bit of pepper and spice. The flavor is crisp and grainy, backed with subtle spice and yeast notes. Light body and fairly-heavy carbonation. Really easy to drink. Mild, but fantastic for the session saison that it is.
