3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #861 - December 28, 2013 - Bottle from a customer at Coop. Aroma is grassy, lemon, pine, pepper. Clear golden pour with a fluffy white head, decent retention. Medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. Smooth mouthfeel, lots of grassy, spicy hops on the palate but very well balanced, citrusy sweetness of grapefruit meets a sharp dry-hop bitterness. Solid IPA.

In a word,balanced. Not overly hoppy, malty, citrusy, or resiny. Just an overall nice, smoothly drinkable IPA. Good.

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.

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.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber gold with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a nice citrus and flora combination with a bit of pine and a light grain backbone. Flavor has more of a citrus and pine hop profile with a light grain backbone.
