Spooky rattler on the label. Pours an orange/yellow color. Fluffy head on this one. Spicy and floral aroma. Bitterness is medium to me and it sticks around on the roof of the mouth. Little bite at the beginning of each sip. A little caramel taste around too.

Clear golden appearance, god head retention. Good citrus and pineapple juice hop aroma. Piney, citrussy palate, mild but adequate biscuity malt, plenty of hop citrus in the finish. Good west coast IPA.

22 ounce bottle shared with Ed at the Bayou. Citrus, grassy, with some caramel. The flavor is dominated by grassy hops. Lots of caramel. Brighter hop flavors, less grassy notes, better balance.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Part of the first German beer tasting in Idar-Oberstein. Thanks to Travlr. One of the things I like about these events is that I get to try beers that you would never try other wise. Sometimes for the better sometimes not. Pours an amber color with a full large off white head. Aroma is pine oil. Taste is bitter hops that is a mess. Palate is dry bitter pine. I had to eat a wild boar sausage in a roll just to get this taste out of my mouth. Blah! This stuff should be used to clean floors and is not fit for humans. We did have fun wacthing the local Germans faces as they tried this with us. Travlr got some great pictures of this.

650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a cloudy copper-amber color with a big white head that has good retention and ample lacing. The aroma is spicy and salty with a mild pine kick. The taste is bitter hops forward with pine, grapefruit, thyme, salt, pepper, sweet caramel, toffee and marshmallows. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bitter pine. Overall: Nice IPA but the malt base is a bit muddled. .

Bomber. Bright gold and a bit hazy.Nose is citrusy and a bit malty. Taste is very bitter, somewhat sweet, and citrusy. The bitterness is a bit overwhelming but it’s still drinkable. I like this one but wish it was in 12 oz bottles.
