3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle Shared by deyholla, thanks derek! Pour is an opaque orange brown with a white head that lasts throughout and laces. nose is a rich combination of pinapple tropical fruits, resiny citrus hops and faint rye backing. Taste is similar with a big citrus, resiny hop pop and tons of carbonation on the palate. Nice complexity and notes, but the mouthfeel isn’t my favorite.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Entering old notes. Thanks to Rosebud butternuts for this one. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is big caramel, slight spicy rye, some big citrus character, and some pine. Flavor is a nice burst of spicy rye, citrus, slight pine, and mild tropical fruit. Medium to full in body for the style and very nice and remarkable overall.

2.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Alright let's be honest, this is an IPA. Very hoppy. The bottle says wild yeast, Brettanomyces and souring bacteria. Other than MAYBE a slight Brett SMELL, the taste is nothing more than your standard Sierra Nevada IPA. Looking for a nice sour? Pass on this one. Look for Cuvée des Jacobins, any RRBC sours -the best, or Goose island Lolita and/or Juliet. (Juliet being the superior). Jester King, I want to love you bc I love your artist, but please, get a real brewmaster in house. No more piss and asphalt, please.

Appearance: the beer pours with a large white head that settles into a very nice dense head, the beer is a darker yet very hazy gold color, good head retention, good lacing Aroma: very strong spice, almost a sweet spice, citrus, orange, some bread, egg, yeast, some funk Taste: lots of spice up front almost reminds me of pumpkin, a certain sweetness hints, coriander, Palate: leaves mouth dry, has a slight bitter aftertaste, moderate mouthfeel, lively carbonation Overall: very interesting beer, sweet flavors with strong spice notes that remind me of pumpkins, still not a very sweet beer overall, bottled 11-4-13.

750ml bottle at home - held to the light, pours a hazey yellow with a lasting frothy white head. The aromas are complex; bergamot, candied lemon peel, spruce, white tea, and grains. Taste is tart and dry with a faded bitter hop finish and is overall refreshing. The yeast strain in combo with the rye and hops create a spicy unique ale that I look forward to having again.

Very solid beer. Great hoppy Aroma, the Rye, yeast and hops work together nicely to give this beer a slight viciousness.
