Pours hazy gold, with a floral hops aroma. And it tastes great. I will be back to buy a growler. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour darker gold. Nose pine citrus and some dank ending with mint. Taste moderately strong bitter up front, more dank hop flavor. Mid palate sweetness then the mint shows up. Mint lasts throughout the finish. Interesting mix. Did I just brush my teeth?

Pour from bottle after 6af5 exam. Amber pour with lasting tan head. Good on the drink but I don't dig the mint after taste too much. That's all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First off, this is not nearly hoppy enough for my liking to be called an IPA. Notwithstanding, this is an enjoyable beer. Not outstanding, not poor, but good. Itís mint, citrus, and caramel malts on the nose, and the taste follows this nicely. Itís refreshing, sweet (hardly hoppy at all), and goes down smooth. Itís good that itís a summer seasonal though, I wouldnít buy it year round.

Pours a nice amber color. Mint, citrus, and pine on the nose; all follow onto the palate. The mint is an interesting addition to this beer and works quite nicely. Different.

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 doesnít 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!

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2014
On tap at World of Beer in Katy, TX. Pours amber. Vegetable, herbacious grassy pine with some fruit in there. I canít pick up any mint. This is OK and drinkable, but not in the league of great IPAs by any stretch.

Fratto (2654) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle from World Market. Orange pour with a big white head. Aroma is spicy, a little fruit, and sappy. Taste is bitter, lots of caramel, pine, and no mint?

12oz bottle. Cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is of pine, heavy herbal notes (almost vegetal), and spices. Taste is of citrus, butterscotch, and pine with a hint of herbal mint..

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 20, 2013
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 íbout a mint stout or porter instead of this? --just ok

Bottle. The look is a light whitish head, sediment, clear, and golden in color. The smell is mint, hops, cleaning solution mixed with barf, and ok. The taste is mints, fruits, bitter, hops, and ok.
