A novice taster - Bottle drank. Eccentric smell, with an elegant touch to the tongue,
compared to others in its lane of flavors. One of my fav IPA's to sip back and Enjoy.

Straw yellow in color with a full foamy head, it had a medium bitter taste. Negligible spice aroma with a rather light spice finish. Modest beer.

Pours blonde, spicy and mild hops in the aroma. Taste is less spicy but quite broad and flavourfull, pleasant bitter finish. Good.

Ok, I read all the mumbo-jumbo BS from ratebeer.com, and I’ve even included it below for your review. But I can tell you, that last thing I thought of when I tasted this beer was...hmm, that is surely the taste of an imported seed of an Indian onion. F&ck that. I started this beer drinking journey to find a brewery I could connect with. Maybe someone thinking the same way I think. Putting fenugreek in your beer because you read about the seed in the latest edition of Bon Apetit, is complete baloney! I did a quick google on it and found out that studies show that the seed actually helps increase milk flow if you’re breastfeeding.
Now I don’t know about you, but my man boobs are quite as productive as I’d like them to be, and I don’t wanna introduce anything into my diet to increase them. Blah.

Whoa, very spicy. The fenugreek is a real standout. Makes it smell like an Indian Curry. Other than the odd, though enjoyable. spicing, this one drinks like a really nice summer session beer. Crisp mouthfeel with lots of effervescent bubbles makes it a real lip smacker. Draft at the pub in Rehoboth.

Draft at Rehoboth. Poured into a pint glass, small head. Nice aroma of spices and maybe some juniper berries? Kind of a funky aroma that I couldnt quite put my finger on. Taste is funky as well. Light spices, a little roasted malt with a slight tartess towards the end. Above medium carbonation level, but light and easy to drink. I enjoyed it and would get another...

On tap-Rehoboth BrewPub-Cloudy amber color w/a slight tan head. Heavily spiced aroma. Spices hit you right away, really gave this a distinct flavor which made it quite enjoyable; like a Hefe on steroids! Can’t tell you how it relates to all those Indian spices as I’m not familiar w/them, but the flavors it most reminded me of were pepper & Old Bay! Had a sweet, malty backbone to it which gave this a full mouthfeel & a long finish. Definite sesson brew, would be great w/some steamed crabs. Quite enjoyable!
