3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I have a strange craving to listen to Doug and the Slugs. Odd. Doubtful purchase but the locals appear to like it. Love the label art, colour and concept. Lightly hazy light apricot colour and a small white cap with sticky blobs. Not a lot of depth in the aroma but often that is a welcome thing. Thick yet airy fruit, caramel and very faint grain, mandarin, lemon and strawberry. My nose says so it is. The taste is also good - thick with some oily goodness, early notable spice wanders around with randomness, solid taste. Caramel and grain, pepper, apricot and grapefruit. Light funk thought. Had more than enough to just drink casually - that truly is the real test of enjoyment - and I dig it, mainly the spicy challenge. Made my eyes feel furry. I’ve been tricked before by letting a brewery reel me in with a decent IPA to buy other offerings and that may just happen here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Live rate. 22oz bottle from that place opposite The Yard House, Town Square, Las Vegas. Pours honey amber into a weizen with a strong, uneven white foam thickly lining the glass. Sponge-based tinned peach flan, batter and caramel aroma. Good rasping bitterness on the tongue beneath soft biscuit, peach, boozy orange liqueur notes. Finishes harsh and peppery with plenty of alcohol presence. Decent enough but a pint is plenty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler flight on tap at the brewery (Las Vegas, NV). Pours a nice decent hazed amber gold hue, touches of frothy whitish head ring ok. Some orange and amber glow throughout, gentle lacing. Aromas show some nice grapefruit, florals, and grass. Gentle lemon, touch of gumball. Some mellow bready sweetness. Really nice nose even through some cigarette smoke. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, nice juicy grapefruit juice and rind. Some lemon, florals, firm bitterness hits the palate. Bigger citrus element, some bread, gentle resiny hops. Touches of orange, bitter florals. A touch resiny. Middle is firmly hoppy and dry, some good bitterness, florals, and dry hoppy elements. Backend keeps on with dry and bitter qualities, some florals, gentle pine, still a grapefruit forward hop profile. Quite lovely. Really nice.
