Tap. Pours lightly hazy amber with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit and straw malt, pine and resin hops, floral hops with fruity esters. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, supporting malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

On tap at Rustico in Alexandria. Served in a tulip. Pours a very, very hazy peach color with a two-finger white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. Fairly ugly. The nose has some slight Cascade hops and a bit of Belgian yeast, though there’s something off. Here, it smells and subsequently tastes fairly hoppy, but more in the way of something that’s been overly dry-hopped, or some sludge that still has hop-pellet remnants in it. Nothing too impressive. Medium body with moderate bitterness. I couldn’t get into this one.

Pours with an average head that quickly diminishes. Light malt flavor with average hops. Prominent peppery flavor up front. Medium body with lively carbonation. Finishes long with heavy bitterness.

rougeau13 (2007) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Hazy orange-copper colored with a medium, pillowy, vanilla ice cream colored head that stays. Decent lacing. Aroma of flowers, citrus, sweet bread and grapes. The taste is really yeasty with some pale malt and mild hop flavors. Medium bodied and dry. Not bad, but kind of weak.

750 from Frank Smith’s. Pours hazy deep gold with huge fluffy clingy white head. Nose is floral and citric hops, rock sugary yeasty malt. Tastes dry, floral, yeasty, hoppy. Comes off like a Belgian IIPA mized with dry champagne,
