5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle:   Somewhat of an earthy mint or spearmint like aroma.   Also earthy with a bit of a vegetal quality.   Not real IPA like to start, at least doesn’t have those floral or citrusy notes.   More of a spiced beer me thinks.   Earthy mint on the tongue, some vegetable stock, a bit of earthiness.   Not sure about this one, very interesting at least.   Maybe its wintergreen that I taste?   Yeah, could it be, wintergreen and earthiness... odd.   Thanks Bill!

Had on draft .. . pours amber, with a light head, some spots of lacing .. . not really getting much mint, heck- even the hops are quite low .. . a bit of bland beer, oh well- i appreciate the experimentation .. . . People used to imagine that 2012 would be full of flying cars but all we have is blankets with sleeves.

Clear amber color with ivory head. Mint leaf, pale malt, herbal aromas. medium body, average carbonation. Spearmint, herbal sweet flavors with pale maltage--lightly bitter finish with mint lingering---how ’bout a mint stout or porter instead of this? --just ok

Mora2000 (5664) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2012
On tap at The Holy Grail. The beer pours a hazy golden-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of pine and pineapple, with a hint of biscuit malt. The flavor is very similar. The pine and orange citrus notes stand out. There is a good amount of bitterness. I get a very light mint aftertaste but I doubt I would get it if I wasn’t looking for it. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A good IPA, but definitely lacking in the mint character.

(draught) hazy burnt orange with lasting creamy offwhite head. Nose of candied orange, minty nose, light resin/pine smells deliciously fresh. Taste is malty, lightly resiny, biscuity and malty but loving this. Medium to full body, oily palate finish.
