Bottle from bird of paradise in Albuquerque. An interesting idea--ingredients from all the different locations they distribute to. Tastes like a hoppy tripel, like gnomegang. Green chiles also show up a bit. Complex, but not that complex. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml thanks to Craig. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A nice hoppy aroma of fruit, mostly oranges. A sweet dry flavor of honey and wheat, loads of citrus hops, very smooth and easygoing. Good.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Sample at the Central OH BA Tasting at From The Vine on 06/02/2012: This beer is a hazy amber-copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, tropical fruit and oak. Medium-bodied with flavors of pineapple and citrusy hops plus some grainy malt and a touch of sweet honey. The finish is sweet and malty with a lingering fruity aftertaste. Above average overall.

750 ml. bottle- Pours hazy golden with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma is funky and sour, hops. The taste is wheat, a little funky, tangy, wood, hops, alcohol, maybe honey. Body is medium, carbonation is high. Overall I liked this beer, but the alcohol could have been better hidden, and it would have been nice to detect some of those New Mexico chilies.

750 ml corked and caged bottle. I like the concept here. Aroma is nice and hoppy--grapefruit is strong; I also get the green chiles--or something vegetal anyway. Pours hazy gold with a long-sustaining thick off-white soapy head. Taste is sweet and meaty; faintly spicy at the end. Tastes more like an imperial IPA than anything, although there are so many different ingredients thrown in to the mix. Not sure what so many of these adjuncts contribute to the overrall beer. All I taste are hops and malted barley with a suggestion of green chiles (??). The oak is nonexistent, but I guess at only 10% of the mix it should be (why only 10%?). An interesting concept, again, but some of these ingredients should be much more prominent (at least noticeable!). That doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s pretty tasty stuff, though. Re-think: beer starts to wear out its welcome after sitting in the glass awhile, lowering my overall a point.

Pours copper / golden with a white head. The aroma is a bit sweet and doesn’t show the high abv. Don’t know if its from reading the bottle, but I taste the green chilis and some oak. The different grains aren’t as easy to pick out, but there is a bit maltiness to it. Don’t notice the prickly pear on the aroma. Really nice. Full body with lots of frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with honey, cotton candy, spicy chilis, light comes and a good deal of complexity. I’m sure some of the complexity comes from things I’m not used to having in beer like corn and wild rice. There are some spicy hops on the finish. Overall an interesting and pleasant beer.

Pours an orange hazy color. Aroma is hoppy citrus and malts almost like an ipa is what i am anticipating. Whoa, flavor is way different sweet at first getting pinneapple and candy and then apircots and vanilla earthy tones with some spicey heat notes that finishes clean what an interesting beer ! Really exceptional from a flavor and taste dynamic

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours slightly hazy orangish color with off white head. Doughy aroma with floral hops and tropical fruits. Pineapple and orange flavors with some bread dough, grapes, and a hint of oak. Medium body with lively carbonation. Very saison-like. I’m liking this one. Thanks Craig.
