3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 02/23/2012. This beer is a slightly hazy yellow-amber color with a medium fizzy white head that burns away steadily to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, malt and a bit of spice. Light body with flavors of floral hops, sweet malt and a touch of spice. The finish is mildly hoppy with a short earthy aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Beautiful head with an evident chill haze after pour. Very hopy with a surprisingly evident citrus bite. Aftertaste resonates of watered down and somewhat astringent taste.

On tat at Elwoods Linclowood. Seemed old as the hops seemed to be dead. Pours a clear rusty amber with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of tangy malt, hops and lemon tea. Taste is much the same as the aroma with a spice

Pour from a 12 oz b ottle. Orange amber brew with off white head. Nice aroma of malt, citrus and pine hops. Taste has a nice malt / rye profile with a fine and complex hoppiness kicking in at the end of the swallow. Average palate. Not an extreme IPA but an extremely tasty one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle fresh from Sprecher brewery. Floral hops, golden yellow body with a generous retained white creamy head. Average mouthfeel, with some astringency, but still a good drinker because of the edge and hop profile. Really bitter as the IBU 73 shows. Must try for hopheads and anyone a fan of the bitter or sour camp.
