4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the 22 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a hazy, carbonated medium amber to orange with a tremendous, puffy head. The aroma is earthy hop forward with a sweet malty character balancing it off. The body is medium and smooth. While the nose highlights the hops, the taste highlights to sweet malty character with the hops more played down. This is nicely balanced and quite enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a fairly clear deep amber color with a huge off white head that shows great retention but only spotty lace. Smells of sweet caramel malt with a grassy earthy hop aroma. There’s a slight hit of licorice and a tinge of astringency in the nose as well. The flavor is sweet and malty like the nose promised. Grassy earthy hops try to provide some balance. There’s a bit of astringency in the flavor as well. Medium body with a moderate to spirited level of carbonation and a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. Talking to the brewer I discovered this is a wet hop ale and it smells and tastes like green vegetative matter. Certainly not the greatest beer they have put out, but kudos for the experimentation.
