3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at MBGSF ’10 during RBSG from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, peppery spice and heat, fruity notes, a splash of honey, lime citrus, definitely got the Caribbean jerk feel, interesting.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft to taster at HopCat. Looks solid; a transparent light orange with foamy white head. Smells of honey, hops, lime, and heat (in that order and nicely balanced). Tastes like it smells, only less balanced (on the hot side). Average on the palate. Eh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a clear orange gold with a white head that dissipates tot the edges. Aroma has a good amount of spice with backing grain and a hint of underlying lime. Flavor burns the back of your throat a bit with a bit of grain and a hint of lime. Not really for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at HopCat. Cloudy golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is very spicy with peppers, sweet malt and mild citrus. Taste is hot and spicy with habanero peppers, some sweet malt and finishes spicy with moderate spice burn. Good in small doses.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Hopcat, pours a clear dark golden color, has aroma that is full of spices with some malt, taste is nearly overwhelming with spices but the malt balance brings it back to earth, enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pouring at the Michigan Brewers Festival during RBSG. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Big spice all over this, all spice, pepper fruit from the habaneros. Definitely smells like jerk spice. Slow and spicy heat, medium bodied. Long gentle heat. This was pretty good in small amounts, and I definitely enjoyed it, but I have a feeling I’d have trouble putting away a whole lot more of it. Quite interesting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid spice, pepper and tart fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Mediumspicy pepper bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where exceeded with a complex beer.
