3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured hazy, pale yellow with a white head. Nice lacing and mild retention. Mild esters with hop spicing and earthiness on the nose. Good drinking IPA. Citrus and resinous spice with mild esters, some grainy sweetness but not terribly heavy on malt or bitterness. Also, nothing too crazy as far as complexity. Just a fine drinking beer.

Bottle (12 oz). Clear bright yellow with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma is yeasty with citrus, herbal notes, nice belgiumness, mineral and floral notes. Taste is yeasty and herbal with citrus, malt and floral presence Light body. Good carbonation. Crisp and clean. Super drinkable and refreshing. Itís not exceptional as some other beer from Stillwater (Table Beer, Debauched Brunello, etc.), but itís another solid beer from a great brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy blonde with a good medium sized head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is just a fun interplay of yeast & hop fruit characterÖ primarily dominated by belgian yeastÖ a lot of pineapple, banana, & melon are offered with some mild citrusÖ honestly itís mostly pineapple and banana though.
The flavor is interesting & far less sweet than the aroma lets on. Itís certainly got a load of fruity hop character, some bubblegum & banana, and some nice toned town (but ever-present) bitterness. Some dusty malt is offered, as are some leafy and floral hopsÖ geeze man, lotís going on here.
I think the primary question on everyoneís mind that no one seems to be asking is when is Stillwater going to brew a Lovecats themed beer?
