Hmm. Does naming a beer after a fictional alcoholic make it okay? Just asking. This has a cloudy brown color. A thin ring of foam left around the edge after Iíve the other three beers in my sampler. Hops are not as powerful as in the other beers, maybe because they are meant more for balance.

On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. and snifter served, displaying a fairly clear, ambered gold color, with a fingerís width of soft white head foam, and doily-like cling to the lacing. The aroma was slightly dank at first, then malty sweet, almost candy-like, dried/pit fruit, with some citrusy notes. The taste showed booze and some Barleywine nature up front, then citrus, and maybe a little resin, less sweetness than the nose, and an earthy, rind-like bitterness that also projected some citrusy astringency, and lingered in tandem with the alcohol warmth. Medium+ bodied, and somewhat dry finishing, with maybe a bit of amped malt impression, but fairly good "IPA balance".

Pour on tap, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of tropical fruit, orange, grapefruit into a bit of spice, yeast, some earth into a bit of grain, biscuit, some slight grassy notes. Taste was a mix of orange, grapefruit, grass and pine into a bit of biscuit, bread, some dough into a bit of caramel, finishing slightly bitter.

Sampled at the tap room. Pours a medium orange with a small white head. The Motueka hops impart a pretty interesting aroma, focusing mostly on tropical fruit and citrus notes. It smells nice, a bit different, but pleasing. Hops get a bit lost in the flavor, but itís still quite bitter. A bit muddled, lots of fruity sweetness and bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit watery, a lingering bitterness in the finish. Needs to get cleaned up a bit, but I see the potential.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2014 Draft at source. A cloudy rusty color. Aroma has a bit of hops. Taste is more malty and bready than I expect from an IPA
