On tap @ NOLA. Clear amber with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of grass, pine needles, faint bitterness, and light fruit. Flavor has added notes of tropical fruit and slight spice. Finish is bitter and dry.

Pours an Amber brown with a thick white head. Aroma of caramel malt, bitter citrus. Taste is balanced, rich caramel malt with a bitter grapefruit bite. Usually when I say balanced in reference to an ipa it is negative. This isn’t the case. Solid balance creates a more interesting ipa that’s easy to drink yet not lacking in flavor.

Can. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a layer of off white head. Aroma and taste of hops and some spices. Not too shabby.

This is a really awesome IPA. Super easy to drink. Hoppy, bitter, with nice balance. Floral hops, citrus, everything you want in an IPA. Really good with pizza. Like insanely good. Definitely get this if you can it’s worth it for sure.

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.

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.

Can shared by BVery - thanks! Amber pour with a nice white head. Big floral hoppy nose. Taste is good but not remarkable.
