Decent Brownish ale, good full body and bitter flavor, but nothing hemp-like about it. Pretty average, nice label, though, and the concept is an attention-getter.

An alright beer, not something that I would embellish about. The aroma wasnít very pungent and the taste did resemble a hemp-like nature but it wasnít a very good match to the beer.

Very nice beer. The taste was smooth and left a slight bitter after taste(which was good). The aroma was of nice hops and malt, and possible hemp? Good Medium brown ale.

Not a fan of this beer. Iím guessing they put hemp in this beer? Whatever that tastes like... tastes like a bad beer to me. Malty aroma, flavor was rough, some bitterness. Something not right about it though.

12oz bottle. Poured a deeper ruby red/brownish color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, nuts, and a wet grassy/earthiness. Tastes of chocolate, nuts, and earthy. Thinner body. Didnít really get a íspice/herb/vegatableí out of it.

i loved this beer. It was extremly smooth,with a deep flavor. There was virtually no after-taste. I enjoyed the experience of drinking this beer. When i had finished drinking it, i wanted another, but alas that was on the other side of the Grapevine.

Tap: Never had hemp so Iím not sure what it tastes like, but I was having trouble guessing the style of this. The color is a rich brown. Just slightly darker than the Rogue Hazelnut Brown ale next to it. Aroma was malt dominated with caramel, light chocolate. I really donít know what they were trying here, but it didnít work.

Draught. Clear dark brown color with off white head. Overall lacking in flavor and aroma. There is a touch of hay and caramel malt in the aroma. Flavor is similar wih some nuttiness and an earthy character.
