COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We bring in the hops for this brew from New Zealand, where locals use the term Boohai to describe being thoroughly lost in a remote or non-existant place far from civilization. To us, that sounded like a pretty good place to be. These unique hops present a noticeable aroma of blackberries, Sauvignon Blanc grapes and pine which come together nicely with a complex blend of Belgian malts to make a deep, yet sublimely pleasant beer.

treign (30) - Bend, Oregon, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Poured from a can. Looks more orange like a pale than a red. Aroma is freshly cut grass. Very thin white head. Taste is definitely hop forward with a little sweetness from the malts. Nothing too spectacular but decent enough.

radagast83 (7602) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Can at Stoic & Genuine in downtown Denver. Poured a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma was heavy on the caramel malts, herbal and earthy. Malty with some light sweetness. Mild bitterness.

Pours cloudy orange amber with a medium beige head, excellent retention. Aromas of biscuit, blackberry, pine, grass and caramel. Medium light body, somewhat watery, lightly dry. Lightly sweet, moderately dry and bitter finish. Enjoyably hoppy and interesting for a red.

superspak (4997) - Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2015
12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy reddish orange color with a 2-3 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, tangerine, blackberry, strawberry, mango, melon, red grape, pepper, pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, tangerine, blackberry, strawberry, mango, melon, red grape, pepper, pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of piney/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, tangerine, berry, mango, melon, pepper, pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderate creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice amber ale. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Cybercat (5324) - Georgia, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Pours hazy dark honey golden with a bit of an eggshell head. Aroma presents malty and woody hop notes. Flavor ramps up everything a notch - delicious! Finish is woody and hoppy, rounding out a firm and fizzy body. Boohai!

BVery (9929) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Can. F this beer. How does a chilled can in this style produce a gusher that loses easily 70% of the volume? Murky orange. Stale malt with mild hop. Crap.
