4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reddish orange in unfiltered hue with a finger of head. Big boy aromas of dank hops, summer sage, and something that reminds me of gingersnap cookies. Medium boy, creamy and smooth, with a nice oatmeal cookie malt backbone and a resinous bite of hop bitterness. The sage is very present with just a hint of juniper. Everything is fantastic until the finish where the sage lends an astringent smack of bitter polyphenols that don’t want to let go of my tongue. A little sharp cheddar would clear this problem right up. If you like aggressive hops, you’ll most likely love this. I would prefer a little more malt sweetness.

Bottle. Thanks to Mar Mar for bringing this up from Mammoth. A brownish copper color with a lush tan head. A semi-sweet, pine, floral and juniper aroma that was quite nice. It is smooth with a balanced bitterness.

Slightly hazy amber color. Sage and hops blend for the smell. Nice bitter but controlled back by the sage. Palette left with hop sage aftertaste.

Bottle at the brewery. No hops in this batch (according to the server), but the juniper berries give it a prominent piney hopped flavor. Alcohol well-hidden. Nice carbonation. Long herbal finish.
