3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12oz). Thanks to my friend Dave B for this one. Poured hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma of fresh juicy hops, mild malt. Taste follows aroma, with strong iced-tea-with-lemon and a hint of grain in there. Mouthfeel a bit creamy, acidic, need to be a little more carbonated. Definitely goes down easy, has a nice citrus mildly bitter linger.

Very spicy flavor for a beer - it has an acidic taste, but it goes down easily and tastes good.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2008 Re-rating. Had this at a Texas Road House Restaurant served way too cold. Pleasant malty and spicy flavors such as nutmeg. Light hops. An enjoyable beer.

Poured from bottle without any noteworthy charachteristics - clear, orange, lively cascading, and with very little head. Aromas of hops and something sweet - perhaps pineapple? Did not care for the way this beer felt in my mouth, not sure if oily is correct term. Flavor was decent with lightly bitter start and finish and moderately sweet middle. A decent beer.

I had this beer at Improv Olyimpic in downtown Chicago. I was suprised! It has a taste of spice in the mix; adding to it’s overall semi-bitter quality. However, it wasn’t too bitter-this well balanced beer makes living in Chicago worth it!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle, from Safeway. Clear gingery colour with an off white head, receding to a collar and thin covering. Very pronounced grapefruit aroma, with an underlying malt character that is dry and rather dull. More citrus, on the palate, with a distinct "hop juice" feel, leading into a tart, slightly tinny, aftertaste. Again, there’s something dry and a bit dull in the background. Sharp, but I wouldn’t call it zingy and the mouthfeel is on the thin side. Ended up a bit like chewing a lemon. I think this needs to be consumed really fresh. This wasn’t (the best before date was illegible).
