Draft at Churchkey. Clear red-brown pour with a light tan head. Lots of American hops on the nose - pine and citrus. Hoppy flavor with pine and citrus thought not overly bitter. Very herbal with basil and even some thyme. A little weird.

on tap at the brewpub, pours amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is strong toasted malt. Flavor is semi-sweet and bitter toasted malt, sunflower seeds, nice clean bitter pine finish. Nice.

Draught at the Brewery: Aroma of Earthy English malts, hops, and sourdough. Poured amber in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, toasting, sourdough, and a hint of caramel. Medium body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. English malt, hops, and sourdough finish is slightly dry.

20100718 Hand pump at brewpub. Well carbonated medium auburn-red with sturdy beige head. Aroma is a kick with mild caramel malts fighting for a place among the tall trees of citrusy hops. Lots of grapefruit and spruce keep a tight palate and do an admirable job of preventing the stuff from becoming flabby after some time in the glass. You know how those hand pumped beers can get a bit limp after a bit, but the sharp hop profile here doesn’t let that happen. Well done bitter. Straight forward, clean stuff.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2010
On tap at the Blind Tiger’s Victory event. Originally on the board there as "Gassy Jack", it later was changed to "Grassy Jack". Victory’s site however still lists it as Gassy, so Gassy it is. Pours a clear copper brown with a large creamy white head. Malty, but subtle. Smooth, light carbonation, nice American hop presence. Earthy and rich. Nice slow grapefruit bitterness on the finish. Really nice and the first of many well done session beers by Victory that night.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel and leafy hops. The taste is caramel, toffee and a bitter hop finish. Decent, but not great. Could use some more maltiness to balance the hops.
