3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - lightly hazy gold - foamy, well-retained head - nose is lightly musty and musky, light melon and other mellow fruits, crackery malt, light mineral, but the is also a pronounced character of adjunct spices, perhaps some orange peel - not too bad, but it does get in the way of the yeast character - flavor is a touch sweet up front, but dries out fast - light tartness through the middle makes way for mildly flinty dryness, mild phenols - dupont yeast character is apparent - lightly pepper finish - the orange peel character is slightly present in the finish - soft, frothy in the mouth - lightly musky throughout - finish is overly bitter, perhaps some other adjuncts are to blame- as it warms, the bitterness is much stronger, and more adjuncts are apparent, leading to an overly spiced finish - it is a decent brew, but has some rough edges to work on - less is more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Wexford. Pours a hazy golden color with a frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of spicy, herbal hops, citrus, stone fruits, pale malts. The taste is herbal, citrus, earthy hops, pale malts and a fruity finish. Comes across more as a BPA than an American hopped beer. Medium bodied, quite refreshing. Nice beer.

Pepper, lots of pepper. On tap. A hazy light gold color with a thin small white head. Aroma and taste is just pepper with a bread backbone. I was very disappointed in this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on draft. Pours a hazy straw color with a white head of foam. Aroma is grassy, herbal, and nearly funky. It has just a touch of earthy tartness, but by no means is it sour. Medium bodied and a nice thirst quencher.
