COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
That’s right, there’s hemp in this smooth, polished amber ale. To be specific, we use hemp seed - one of the oldest and healthiest of ingredients - to create a subtle toasted nutty flavor that compliments the hops (a botanical cousin to hemp) and rye. We use Cara Rye and Malted Rye for a subtle spiciness and rich ruby color and Victory Malt to tie together the flavors with a nuttiness that compliments the hemp seed flavor. German Hallertauer hops add seasoning and we finish with Cascade hops for a crisp citrus aroma and taste. This wide assortment of flavors harmonize, creating a uniquely smooth and flavorful beer! Enjoy!

Pours a hazy light copper into a tulip glass. Two fingers of off white head that dissipates to a sustained film and leaves good lacing. Aroma of caramel and bread with some earthiness and a hint of light fruit. Rye and pumpernickel bread with toffee and toasted malt. A nice earthy flavor with very little hop presence. Mouthfeel was semi full and somewhat sticky with light carbonation. Beer relies on its malt bill to provide most of the flavor. Good but leans toward being too sweet and could have used a bit more carbonation for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, confounded screw-top. Nose is grainy with a distinct raspberry overtone, though that might just be might long experience with razz-wheats; there’s wheat, rye, light citrus, malt. Pours hazy amber-red with some significant brown mitigation, head is soapy beige leaning to tan. Taste sweet but not cloying, light bitterness, lightly oily and boozy but also soft rather than fizzy; touch of spicy kick but not hot or aggressive. I really like the citrus and fruit here, simply nothing like the normal output from these hops, and there’s a great caramel-dough maltiness in the fullish body, balance all around. Flavorful and quite pleasant!

Nice bite....little lacking on the palate. I would try it again to be fair. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle sample at Top of the Hops Biloxi. Hazy golden color. Aroma of spiced caramel. Taste is light toasted nuts. Interesting.

alexanderj (3402) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle; poured a glowing orange amber color. Aroma of ripe fruit, rotty funk, and wort. Pretty sweet flavor; fruity with some mellow earthy spice. Better flavor than aroma

Cloudy orange amber with a small foamy tan head. Aroma is faint but it’s there, a bit of dough and savory spice. Flavor is a blend of light, spicy rye and toffee malt plus a weird diacetyl flavor that I can’t quite pin down. I don’t know if that was the hemp or what but it just didn’t click for me.

A beverage that arrives with minimal expectations because, really, what do you expect with so many ingredients? One quality this does not have is much of an aroma -- too many ingredients? But it looks darn fine and goes down with little trouble with a snappy little finish that gives a hint of the hop combo.

(12oz bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, and herbs. Flavor of orange, grass, toasted rye, earthiness, florals, and caramel.

JaBier (5315) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 5/4/14. Aroma of menthol and malt. Malty flavor with cherry character before a hoppy finish. Some very odd things going on with this beer.

Spruce hops, very hoppy. Having made rye bread before I can taste the rye and dareisay that adds a rye/bread-y element. Aroma ok, amber really just a basic amber taste...
