not outstanding but very interesting. unique czech hop qualities(spicy) with some solid American citrus notes. Tastes like pilsner malts. some light funk in there as well. some interesting belgian qualities.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Highly carbonated golden ale with a nice white head. Smell is very earthy and grape like. Taste is bitter with a sweet grape and bread like flavor. It taste like a sour ale a little bit. Not a bad start for a hybrid style.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a huge white head. The aroma is pretty wild. I get a strong cat piss aroma along with some citrus and bready malts. The flavor is more of the same with some funky cat piss, citrus, pine, bread and some low bitterness. This is one of the funkier, cattier IPAs that I have tried. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rare Beer Club bottle: pours a hazy golden. huge fluffy white head. What an interesting nose. FUNK is the word. always wondered what an earthy basement aroma with some yeasty cheese smelled like. simply odd and made you wondering what youíre going to get. Pretty slick in texture. citrus fermenting fruit with a bit of unique hop strain that adds upfront bitterness briefly that quickly fades for a soft finish. Interesting to say the least. Enjoyable.

Sampled at Lithyís Tennessee/Ole Miss tasting. Wow. This is one of the most unique beers Iíve ever had. The aroma is one of the stinkiest, cheesiest that I have ever smelled. EXTREMELY funky. Which makes you prepare for a sour beer, but surprisingly, not what you expect. Not like an ipa at all. So funky citrus hoppy flavor. This is wierd, but I think i like it?

bottle thanks to GregMcQ. He shared this at the Freetail La Muerta release. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Nose is Wow! weird with spices and perfume. Has a funky taste as Iím not used to this combination of these hops and spices. Mouthfeel is carbonated and bitter. This one was strange.
