2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
growler... what the heck is going on with this beer, identity crisis... medium brown with an amber hue, light tan head... the aroma and taste are both super hoppy, leading to my confusion, it tastes distractingly hoppy, more so than a lot of dipa’s I’ve had, light floral notes but wrecked my palate and this was discarded quickly
Growler shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer appears clear and copper hued with a small head. The aroma brings hops, pine, and a touch of grapefruit. Some biscuity malt charcter in the flavor. The finish brings some alcohol and bitterness. I don’t see this as a Munich Dunkel Lager, as it is too hoppy for that style. Still, a decent beer regardless of what category into which it falls. Light to medium in body. This was pretty good.

Dont go into this beer looking for a traditional Dunkel or even lager. Go into this looking for a great beer and you will find one. Great hop bite and it reminds me of a solid DIPA. Floral and citrus hops dominate with a nice bready malt profile. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - FEB 10, 2012
These guys are fixing German lagers ala three floyds. Congradufuckinglations. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012

Pours a moderate brown with a bit of a reddish-amber hue. The head is thin and foamy without too much retention, even for a growler. Some spots of lacing. The nose brings some strong hop notes. Nothing too enticing, but pretty good. The flavor has those hops, but it also brings forth quite a bit of booze. Some lightly-sweet malt in the background.
Light-medium body with good carbonation and bitterness, but too much alcohol through the finish, especially as it warms just a bit. I like the concept, but didn’t enjoy this one nearly as much as the Hoponius Union.

Pours thick amber in color with a clear body and off white head. The aroma is hoppy with a bit of the German malt notes from the dunkel style that are noticeable. The flavor has a solid hop profile with light dunkel malt wheat-like flavors and smooth bitter hops settling on the palate.
