Dark orange and very little head. Floral, earthy, cooked vegetables. Though this IPA is balanced at first, it is dry and astringent later. Loads of flavour but not delcate in any way. Pretty good if you’re into it. (On tab in Stubbies)

Sampled from the tap at the Cajun Cafe Fall Fest. Pours a hazy amber with a yellowish brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has sweet grains and caramel with a thick sappy pine hop note. Flavor starts with more bitter pine has some sappiness and a bit of caramel in the finish to balance the bitterness.

Growler shared thanks to kantrauch! Pours a hazy golden brown with light bubbly head, lost some carbonation in transit. Aroma of bready caramel, sweet malt, slight medley of citrus hops on top. Taste follows, bittersweet bready grain. Syrupy but no hint of the booze. Nothing spectacular, but not bad.

draft at redlight redlight. pours a yellow/orange with a thin white head. not much lace. hoppy nose with lots of citrus notes particularly grapefruit and orange peel. pretty bitter flavor with a bit of a bite in the finish. very smooth for having a high alcohol content. just ok.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Kickbacks. Pours a clear light amber with a decent white head. Okay retention and little to no lace. Aroma on this is very funky- almost like unblended lambic (I shit you not). There are some geuze notes in here of horse, sour fruits. Taste is just full on hop bitterness, wheat, herbal medicines, some sickly sweet malt. And then background geuze notes. Maybe an infection in this batch? Could be the beginnings of something very good- an IPA lambic (!!).

Had this on tap at Hunahpu Day 2011. Pours an interesting tan lacing, very malty, when I have a double IPA I want the enamel ripped off my teeth. Ahhh... alright

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft... Mildly hazed, light amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy – yet fat-bubbled – white head. Fantastic retention. The aromatics are heavy with peppery hops, grapefruit, peach, pine and resin. Full-bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation. The flavor is nothing but hop and alcohol bitterness and astringency. Assertive, aggressive and nearly offensive. Where’s the malt? Finishes liquor-like, harsh and bone dry.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On-tap at the Hunaphu release... Pours a murky dark gold. The head off white rises a couple fingers, gone quickly, ok lace... The aroma is caramel malt with citrus, alcohol, and some hops on the finish. Ok... The taste is a little too strong with too much alcohol and just a little blah, not very flavorful. Alcohol with generic hops.
Not a big fan of this, nothing new.
