3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft on tap at (New Orleans, LA). Pours a nice deeper decent hazed amber hue, mellow glow with some orange, copper, frothy whitish head remains as a decent layer, good lacing as a nice frothy firm layer. Aromas are hoppy, citrus and gentle tropical fruit. Some florals, earth, toast, a firmer malt base beneath shows caramel, some more distinct sweetness, bread and toast. Initial mirrors this, firmer citrusy grapefruit, lemon. Some toast, toffee and caramel. Earth, middle moves into florals, earthy bitterness. Some gentle sweetness. Backend is a bit dry, bitter, a firm hopping with some decent odes to complex fruit flavors. The maltbill seems a bit sweet and aggressive to me, sweet caramel and butter into the backend. The hops do pop up front but overall Rebirth seems like a much better beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can thanks to BVery last August. Almost didn’t rate this simply because I had a hard time articulating comments, but then I realized it was from Louisiana and new state tick trumps poor comments. Anyway, my notes: Amber/gold, white head; citrus, grass, sour hops. Can’t articulate, but this is a little sickly [present self: wtf does that mean?], almost weedy (like weeds by the side of the road). 3.1. Louisiana!

[ Keg ][ 16oz ][ Cochon Butchers NOLA ][ $6 ][ Conical Pint ][ 8.30.14 ]
>> Clear orange amber pour. Decent lace. Nose is sweet tea, raspberry tea, fresh orange, strawberry. Taste is full bodied, amber specialty malt added density, spicy hops, definitely in the East Coast amber IPA area. Thicker, heavy body. Harsher paper finish. Drinkable, but outdated.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from a trade. No dragons or anything cool on the can, so only a 3 there. Aroma is muted hops, mostly grass. Taste is a sweet sticky malty mess of hay, grass, and sweet tea. very astringent and harsh with no hop flavor. This is bad. I just hope someone sent me a bad can and this beer is better fresh.

Pours a clear amber color with off white head. Faint fruity, citrusy, earthy hop aroma, caramel malt. Stale, oxidized, faint hop flavor, earthy, sweet, mild bitterness, lots of malt...old can or just bad beer.
