3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2012 March 13 2012. Pint bottle. Pours clear dark yellow, thick bubbly head which reduces quickly to a ring around glass that sadly clings just enough to make some lacing. Aroma is definitely hoppy with conflicting floral and fruit. Soft dry palate, a little oily though in aftermath. You can really taste all that is going on, the apricot candy and the grassy floral with some hints of citrus and hops. Sometimes the taste seems to change which makes it complicated to drink, but definitely not strong or too much hops at all. In fact, would like to have a bit more hops or bitterness in aftertaste as there wasn’t any. A bit too confusing for my tastes left me wondering "what was that I just drank?" but not enough to not have another.

I was intrigued by the name of the beer, and moderately satisfied with the flavour.

Pours clear amber with a small white ring and not bad lacing. Aroma is fruity and floral hops with some caramel. Taste is a bold fruit/floral hop bitterness, some earthy malts but slightly out of balance.

Sample from can at the Strange Brew Tasting on 02/18/2012. This brew pours a clear yellow-gold color with a medium white head that burns away steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Light grassy hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with a mildly bitter hops character and notes of bready malt and fruit in the background. The finish is short and leaves a fruity hops aftertaste. Average overall.

Can shared by a friend. Pours clear gold with a huge white head. Aroma of sweet malt, honey and mild hop. Sweet malt flavor followed quickly by bitter hop astringency before an earthy hop finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy dark orange. Aroma is malty and floral (lilac) with a little booze. Nice chewy mouthfeel. Caramel and citrus hoppyness, but nothing extreme. Finish is a bit salt and mineral. Aftertaste is lasting and a bit unpleasant. Something not quite right in the balance. I can see what they’re going for but I’m not really down with this beer.

From can. Rusty brown-red with large white head that fades quickly. Earthy hops aroma. Feels gritty and sticky in the mouth. Bitter finish. Decent blue collar IPA

Pours a clear golden-yellow with a modest white head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Spicy and lightly citrus hop taste with lightly sweet malting. Crisp body with good carbonation. Very quaffable - packs a wallop!

Appearance: Transparent orange, lots of carbonation, massive frothy white head. Aroma: Very sweet, banana, vanilla, hints of caramel and butterscotch. Palate: Smooth, slightly dry finish. Medium bodied. Slightly creamy texture. Taste: quite sweet. slightly bitter and salty finish. Kind of a simple flavour, but rather pleasant.
