A little too bitter and aftertaste wasn't terribly pleasant.

Sheephead pours a reddish darker color with a small non lacing head. There is a hoppy aroma, with big earthy notes. The taste is very earthy, some hops come through, a funky earthy aftertaste. A bit flat. Overall its strong, but very earthy, malty, with a funky hop flavor that doesn't fit well

From a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass from the Dollar Tree (where I get all my drinking glasses.)

I love BB's Moo Joos, but the Ringneck didn't do anything for me, so we'll give this one a try.

A truly lovely pour with thick, billowy foam the color of antique ivory, four fingers easily. Very sticky on the glass with clumps rather than lacing. The beer itself is a hazy amber-orange, bright and cheerful.

Scents of aromatic grapefruit, fresh citrus and ginger, delightfully warming the nose. Even my wife, who doesn't like beer at all, loves the smell of this brew.

The taste doesn't live up to the smell, but it's still quite good. Bitter citrus with herbal notes, lightly sweet malt that doesn't quite balance the hops. Pleasantly long on the tongue.

Medium light body, easily drinkable with long lasting carbonation.

A very good, hoppy ale. Too strong for session drinking, but very refreshing for a warm summer day. I'll be getting this again come June.
