Welcome to Houston -- Aroma is a strong assertive smoke, hint of hops? Flavor is extremely assertive smoke, juniper, (palette is working every every synapse) ... and I think I lost it. Drank another sip and pretty sure my palatte is more and officially wrecked. Nothing to see here move on ...

Reviewed from notes: smoke on the aroma with just a bit of juniper and citrus. On the palate there is smoke and juniper, not my favorite combination. Weird beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy golden color ale with a nice generous white head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light salty rustic malt notes with some spices, juniper and light smoked notes also noticeable. Taste is a unique mix of juniper, smoked notes with some salty rustic malt notes clearly identifiable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Very interesting beers for sure but I am not sure I would feel the need to drink this on a regular basis.

Bottle received in trade. Thank you Jeffrey (non-RB)! Pours vibrant hazy yellow with a big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some soapy lacing on the glass. Smell is floral, earthy and slightly phenolic with crackers, honey, smoked meats, dandelions, hay, moist soil, dry wood, lemon zest, ginger and juniper berries. Taste is tiny malty, tiny herbal, earthy, and slightly phenolic with crackers, smoked meats, hay, lemon zest, unripe pears, dry soil, juniper berries, honey, white bread, and alcohol. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly round, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is tiny malty and slightly phenolic with crackers, white bread, hay, dry soil, lemon zest, juniper berries and smoked meats. Strange yet quite good.
