3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft, Brouwer’s. Poured black with a thin beige head. Aroma is grassy and earthy hops primarily. Flavor is lightly toasty malt with more of the grassy, earthy hop character. There’s also a bit of a lemon peel character, put mostly the hops are more on the herbal side. Very dry and bitter on the finish.

Bomber served in a tulip. Beautiful dense cola pour topped by a large frothy light brown head. Great retention and lacing. Piney and floral hop aroma along with some chocolate malt. Roasty bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, good carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a charred, bitter finish with sticky resin that lasts.

very dark with a white head and an incredible floral hop aroma. Pretty hoppy taste but a little lacking in the malt finish. pretty good though

Tap at Bier Stein. Poured out a cola brown with a light tan head. Aroma of earthy hops and some hefty caramel malts. Flavor pretty much the same, has a hefty malt finish. I don’t know that I’d call this an IPA, but am not 100% sure where I’d categorize it. Either way it was a decent enough beer.

First off, the name really doesn’t work for me. Cola colored. Has a bit of an oil smell. Perhaps too much of one type of hops? Hoppy and bready mixture.

My favorite beer at NAOBF ’09. Its dark, superbly hopped into an earthy drink. good ABV and the resin qualtiy just lasts. When I can taste the beer in my nose, then its a good one.

Tap from Organic Brewers Fest... Poured deep brown with an off-white head. Hoppy, wood-like aroma. A little acidic but a nice hoppy tone. A little bit of toasty malts. Sweet, bread-like finish.
