3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Jolly Pumpkin, Ann Arbor. It’s a clear, dark golden beer with a small off-white head. There’s lots of peaches, mango and generic fruityness in the aroma, some grass and resin hints. It’s super soft on the palate, with a low carbonation level, medium to full body. Tropical fruits and some bitterness in the mouth, not much maltyness going on. Fruity finish. A bit weak all the way, but nice indeed. 150614

On tap at JP in Ann Arbor. Poured medium and clear gold color with no head. Aromas and tastes of nuts and some fruitiness. Herbal. Had a herbal after taste I couldn’t quite put my finger on - maybe the agave?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Enjoyed on tap at JP Ann Arbour. Yellow coloured body is not exceptional. The carbonation is above average, it is a below average bodied beer. A ittle sour and sweet, though the hops are there.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this at the brewpub in Ann Arbor.
The lights were dark but it appeared a clear light peach color with minimal head.
Smell was greatly hoppy and fresh.
It was very hoppy, but balanced in taste. THe hops were really spicy, but with a hit of grapefruit peel. There was a slight sourness underneath. It was crisp and clean.
This is a great beer, not sure how limited it will be but I recommend getting it while it is there.
Serving type: on-tap

5oz on tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. Clear golden color. Thin white head, leaving good ridge of lace. Moderate bitter taste, hint of tart, light sweet, more dry. Interesting, complex flavor. Citrusy hop, bit of belgian yeast, get some of the agave. Mild spiciness. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter to moderate carbonation. Mild effervescence. Solid, interesting unique belgian IPA.

On tap. Poured a clear bronze with an egg shell head. Aroma was full of citrus hops with a bit of underlying spices. Earthy hops were the main flavor I picked up with a bit of spice and yeast underneath.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2011-11-12. Crisp golden yellow body with a nice white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is odd, grainy, bit different, mild bitterness grows in the finish with a light kiss of grass, and tropical fruit. Bit of chestnut like character? Unusual profile. 6+ Aroma is quite floral, fruity, lightly perfumey. 6+ Average palate. Interesting, just okay overall but probably the best gluten free beer I have had. On tap at Jolly Pumpkin Cafe, Ann Arbor

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewpub in Ann Arbor. Very pale golden-straw pour. The nose is composed mostly of a fresh hoppy aroma. Lemon peel and lemon grass with a bright fruity aroma. A little bit of really intense fruitiness along with some light dry spiciness. Lemony and tropical. The flavour is actually very hoppy... sort of a combination of Sorachi Ace and Citra with a very soft bitterness. Very lean light malt with a nice citrusy hoppiness. Fresh an quite tasty.
