look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
12 oz undated bottle served in a goblet.
Pours a dark amber color with excellent clarity and a decent head.
Has a nice spicy/herbal aroma from the hops, but the flavor is a bit too earthy for my tastes. As should be the case, some malts evident beneath the hops.
Fee: Medium body is smooth, with modestly lively carbonation.

Attractive dark amber brew with a modest cap of foam in the pint shaker. Moderate carbonation. Some hoppy notes in the mild aroma.
Tangy and spicy with a big dose of hops. Surprisingly rich for the moderate alcohol content. Flavors of grilled pineapple, pear nectar, and browned biscuits. Fairly malty Bitter finish. Fairly tasty, but the funky dankness is less than appealing. Not what you'd call refreshing.
On tap at District 13 in Hollywood, Calif., which is worth a visit to help fortify you against the dreadful surroundings. [notes from 25 Feb 2014 visit]

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
The color is a clear golden/amber with a finger and a half of thick foamy white head with some lacing left on the glass.
The smell has a floral hop presence that has a nice mellow aroma. There is slight sunflower aroma here with hints of orange and tangerine in the nose.
The taste has a nice earthy taste to it. There is a hop presence here but has more flavor than bitterness. There is more earthy flavors here that meld well with a sweetness that has grainy flavor that compliments some of the grass-like flavor. There is some hints of floral hops here towards the end but really quietly finishes with too much bitterness pushing back
The feel of this beer is medium bodied but could even be described as light as it seems to swing back and forth between the two. With a dry, crisp feel this beer drinks similar to a pilsner.
