COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If youíre anything like me, there were certain days youíd look forward to every month when the school hot-lunch calendar was released. Days that stood head and shoulders above the rest. The days when your absolute favorite cafeteria item was being served. Whether your food of choice be chicken fingers, tacos, pizza, french toast sticks, cheeseburgers, or country fried steak, those days were the best of all the days. The days when you could feel the electricity in the air as the seconds passed before the lunch bell would ring. With those memories in mind, we hope to elicit the same feeling of excitement with our newest brew: Taco Day. Taco Day is a 6.7% strong pale ale of the single hop varietal. We used an experimental hop from the Pacific Northwest. This beer has a subtle, floral taste with notes of berries in the aroma.

"Mmmm this is a tasty burger ". This is a very light tasting IPA. Almost sessiony. Pours a clear golden hue with a light head and a Pilsner like aroma. Slightly bitter hop taste with a clean hop finish.

On tap: The aroma consists light fruit, citrus, grapefruit, and florals. Itís a transparent dull golden-orange with a small white head that fades to a thin soapy film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of mild fruit and citrus. The finish has mild pine, florals, and grapefruit. Itís light bodied with mild carbonation.

Draft at half acre. Nose is fruity but subdued. Light mango. Fairly clear pale orange with a small white head. Taste is initially bitter with a soft malt sweetness. Hop flavor shows off some pithy citrus without much zest rather bitter focused. For me not enough hop flavor or aroma.

Bottle. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate floral hop and small sweet aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate citrus sweet flavor with a moderate sweet finish of medium duration.

22 oz. bottle shared by beerpig317. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor had some berry notes and floral character that was expected, but I got a big oniony and earthy character that I didnít like, some citrus, toasted bread, with moderate bitterness, not my favorite of the day.

22 oz. bottle shared by beerpig317- thanks again, Bunker! Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow gold with a small white head that settles into a lasting film and ring. Dank, herbal, cat piss and weed kind of aroma. Notes of bitter grass, florals, lemon and grapefruit peel, pale malts, and a bit of soap. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, really bitter mouthfeel. Just a tad too bitter but otherwise a really nice dry IPA.

DrSilverworm (8711) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2015
22oz bottle, shared by local raters. Golden orange color, hazed up by many fine particles in the body. Nice thin white head, leaving good dots and bits of lace. Nice biscuity bready malt. Interesting hop indeed -- berries, floral, some earthy flavors to it. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, sort of crisp lighter carbonation, with a mild dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, very light sweet. Tasty, interesting single-hop "strong pale ale".

shigadeyo (3296) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Berry (mullberry or gooseberry?) and herbs on the aroma. Hazy yellow color, white head. Light lime zest, herbal/spice/grass/citrus/juniper hops, malt stays completely out of the way; Medium light, good level of carbonation, airy mouthfeel, a bit watery. I wish they would state which experimental hop this was so I would know for my home brewing knowledge...

Bottle of beer. Iím kind of torn by this one. My first impression was the smell, which I really didnít care for. Strong dank smell. Kind of skunky, maybe comparable to ditch weed. However, I did enjoy the taste. Nice bitter dry flavor. Iím going to say this beer was OK.
