3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bizarre aromas and flavors of cucumber, fig berries, and pine. Smooth, refreshing body that turns sweet on the back of the palate. Unique brew that boasts a long finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with a huge thick white head on it. Nose has some juniper to the nose, with a little bit of pine coming through. Taste has a fair amount of tartness to it, and has a slight bit of booziness. Tastes a lot like a gin martini...

16oz pour at Bardo DC. Pours a lightly hazy saffron gold with some thin white head. Nose has a lot of spice and herb, citrus, yeast, mild malt. Flavor had plenty of orange, mild malt, herbal, a little root veg, some rusty metal. Clean finish.

Fruity Aroma, some berry and gin too. Apples,pear, oak, chardonnay. Golden-Light orange color. Taste us less pungent than aroma, but pleasant. About to have a dinner of mahimahi and Lima beans and iím anticipating a good match. (Is that too close to "silence of the lambs" to be be creepy?) Very nice. A touch sour on the aftertaste, but a well crafted beer.

$1.99 for a 22 oz. bottle at Andersonís Market (Sylvania, OH) so I thought why not. Pours a hazy orange and incredibly thick foamy head. Both bottles I bought overflowed with foam when I opened them. The juniper taste was extremely mild, almost hard to find but it seemed very floral. For two bucks, Iíd buy it again.

2.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A: Golden with a finger of off-white head which falls nearly immediately to a sheet of the same. Rings of lace. Near excellent clarity.
S: wow. gin. weed. gin. really have nothing else to say here. Seriously, the only other beer Iíve smelled with this much weed was devil dancer.
T: Flavor is much more subtle. Pale malts, some bitter hops, some juniper. Plenty of onion and cucumber flavors. Weird, not really good. Almost has a dill pickle flavor on the finish. Fail.
M: Medium bodied with moderately hi carb.
O: Canít think of a reason to buy this again.
Serving type: bottle

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This poured a hazy light orange with a white head. Aroma was of pale malt, and very light juniper. Flavor was similar, very bland and boring pale ale with a light juniper finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is a decent sweet malt with pungent fruitiness. Flavor is typical pale ale malts and hops but the aftertaste has a herbal spicyness. Iím guessing this is the juniper although I have never ate a juniper berry to compare this too. Itís a ok pale ale with a little twist.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I tells ya, of all the beers the Yellowknife liquor store coulda imported they find the wackiest Rogues to bring up - chipotle and juniper? Selliouslee? Likez, I guess they gots all the IPAs and lagers covered with the boring stuff so here we go, get the crazy stuff from the Oregon people - why not? So, it poors with a nice lager-IPA body and good creamy head ŗ la an English cream ale thatís in a hurry. Aroma is plenty of hops, but Iím struggling to smell the juniper. Iím a big gin kinda guy, so Iíd be all over a Juniper scent if Iíd found one. The flavour is some heavy malty notes with a bit of hops and, dare I say, a juniper finish. But the juniper is honeslt buried amongst the other stuff whereas I firmly believe it should be fluttering along the top. Drinkable but this is not the "exotic" brew I was expecting - itís more of a tempered IPA that might lead to surprises for people with highly sensitive tastebuds.
