Tap - @ Jojo’s. Pours crystal clear yellow-amber with decent size white head, diminishing. Aromas of soap, yeasty, and orangey hops. Bit of bananas. Nice tastes of lively orange malts, bready hops, and citrus at the finish. Good long finish of bitter hops. Nice and drinkable. Very cool if the weather would turn.

22 oz bomber. This beer sat in my fridge for the longest time - as I thought it would be overly malty, not my favorite. IT turned out to be much better than I thought. Yes, it has a rather heavy bready roasty backbone, but a good dose of hops balance things out nicely. A very rich palate - a bit too rich for the middle of the summer - this would be a nice beer for early spring - when it was brewed - or late fall at a football game. The really special aspect of this beer is that the flavor is truly unique.

From 22oz bottle to dimpled mug. Pour is a nice good, thick foamy head. Nose is hoppy slight malt. Finishes average.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a good 2 finger head that leaves some moderate lacing. Aroma is of light earthy hops. Flavor is bitter earthy hops, some sweet grain, some lemon. Medium bodied Very nice example. I cant wait to see what else is in the Hop Kitchen.

The aroma is of wheat and dry hops. The hops, as I sip the beer, take on a character of grass and some citrus. The taste is very balanced between sourness and biterness. The palate is mostly strong, albeit with an unimpressive finish. That said, quite a good beer. (Note: after drinking, I checked and saw that this bottle was a bit past the due date... and it’s still quite good, so that says something. Now I just need to try it fresh!)

There are some great hops finely matched in this delicious lager.
Clearly a homerun, this brew is subtle and sufficiently bitter. Blends great with mustard roasted potatoes and chicken

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Too dry an aroma filled with aging groundcover foliage. Overly translucent, albeit liquid gold in color. That aging foliage is all there is in the flavor. A bit acrid on the palate. Harshly un-enjoyable.

Great lacing. This is a little confusing, but still good. Not malty like a heller bock, but hoppy. Still tasty, but I prefer the dead guy ale. Worth trying

Decent hop aroma and very clean characteristic lager flavor, which works well with some more hop flavor. I actually enjoyed this one a lot more than I thought I was going to.
