Oscbert (1263) - Lincoln, California, USA - OCT 21, 2009
~Aroma of resinous and citrus hops with a bit of berry and a sweet maltiness. ~Pours a cloudy orange with diminishing white head. ~Berry citrus hop flavor with hop derived astringency. ~Thin bodied, medium carbonation, bitter hop finish, ~Good aroma, small head, taste is lacking something. Very thin for an IPA. Decent, definitely drinkable.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 19, 2009
12oz bottle. Dark, dirty honey body topped with an off-white head that lasts but doesnt lace. Aroma is floral hops dominated by agave or some sort of cactus (prickly pear? yerba mate?...whatever that is), funky-musky-herby sweetness, floral tea. Mouth is medium with light carbonation and a watery finish with some distinct, astringent qualities (like a not-quite-ripe persimmon). Flavor is mildly hoppy, woody, touch of honey, after-taste of apple cider vinegar and the astringent substance mentioned in palate (tea-like), and pine hops. Quince comes to mind, probably for the astringency and strange sweetness. Interesting for sure. Definitely an herb-vegetable.

Bottle thanks to travita. Amber with a white head. Nose is spicy with hops fighting to be noticed. Not bad on the palate with a decent hop flavor that finishes spicy.

travita (4891) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2009
The look is clear, yellow color, and has a white head. The smell is weird, spiced, herbs, hops, and bitter. The taste is hops, bitter, herbs, and cardboard.

Cavie (4321) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2009
Bottle courtesy of travita. Clear golden pour. Smells of hops but nasty hops. Sweaty underarms. Taste is quite spicy. Some sweet but gets bowled over by the hop nasty. Bleh.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle thanks to travita. Pours with a white head and a clear golden body. Aroma of tea and hops, very herbal. Taste is odd...let me rephrase...horrible. Exotic tea leaf (yerba) and bitterness with some vegetable notes. Why put Yerba Mate in a beer?

marcus (9393) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 6, 2009
This hazy golden ale poured with a foamy white head and a fruity aroma. However, the flavor is anything but fruity. Its very herbal and slightly sour with a little hop bitterness. I happen to like mate, so this one is very drinkable for me but, as a beer, it leaves much to be desired.

Clear golden pour, with small white head. Earthy hops, citrus, a bit sourness and herbal flavor, vegetable, and metallic. Not very good.

walleye (1094) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Found this at Famous Market in white lake Mi.poured a cloudy dark golden with no head. aroma orange, floral, sugar, hops, some sourness. flavor, hard to describe this, I do not think I have anything that tasted like this. got some citrus and alcohol and did get olives which I do not like and do not eat them so maybe that is why I can not get anything else
