First of Monday Nights Black Tie series. Finally, a fresh hop beer that wears flannel year-round, listens to only vinyl, and writes his journal on a typewriter. This rich, fresh amber ale has just the right amount of "you probably havent heard of it," including a large dose of fresh Chinook hops. In fact, fresh Chinook hops are the only hops used in this beer. Think of them as the single gear on his fixed gear bike, as he rides his skinny-jeaned self into the harvest season. Chinook hops. The obscure ones. Piney and citrus notes should come through. Victory, Munich and Crystal malts lend a little bit of biscuit and caramel flavor.

Pours a clear golden brown on tap with nice fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is big on the fresh hop, clean floral and citrus notes over a sweet malty base. Taste follows, resinous, grassy and clean, great hop profile. Good carbonation, solid sessionable brew.

Tap from Hop City. Pours a transparent dark amber with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma is faint, a mix of his and malts. Taste of some bitterness, bread malts, and thats about it.

DarkSong (374) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2014
22 oz bottle. Pours a amber color with a very large and long lasting white head. It has a complex hop aroma. I smell grass, citrus & pine. The beer is super refreshing and drinkable but not the hop bomb you may expect. I taste pine, citrus and herbal hop flavors and a nice caramel flavor from the malt. I like this beer and this brewery.

22 oz. bottle pours an amber color with a nice white head. Aromas of metal, light sweet malt, soap. Light bodied, not really that good.

GTAEgeek (2160) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Nice copper color, with a big, bubbly, off-white head. The aroma is immediate caramel, with some cloves, mild earthiness, and some light piney hops. Sweet flavor, with just a little mild bitterness. Light to medium body, smooth, and velvety. This is a nice, mellow beer. Good flavor, and excellent mouthfeel.

bottle. slightly cloudy copper with a large head. earthy hop aroma with bread malt. big bready victory malt flavors which i dont care for, touches of toffee and a light manageable citrus and black tea note from the chinook. medium bodied and slurpy palate. they a good job with this...dont expect a hop bomb. it seems as if they used the fresh hops for the whole boil so its not very bitter. if you like victory malt then this beer is for you i suppose.

Bottle. The look is clear, copper colored, and a beige colored head. The smell is hops, light, malt, and cardboard. The taste is malty, cardboard, hops, and ok.

Clear amber pour with a frothy white head. Stuck around nicely. Aroma was quite malty up front, caramel. Once swirled a bit some light citrus, earthy hop and woody notes came in. Flavors followed suit with good bits of caramel, slight citrus and a dry woody finish. Mouthfeel was medium to light, velvety carbonation was a plus. You need to give this one a minute to grow on you before jumping to conclusions. Quite nice once it opens up.
