2.83/5 rDev -20.3%
medium brown, somewhat hazelnut in color with a nice two finger head of tan lace on the top.
Lots of sugar and caramel were present and these were mixed in among a nice solid roasted malt back. Apparent nuttiness started to present itself as it warmed a little bit and the sweetness started to become more pronounced. To be honest it was not that pleasant. Far too sweet for me and I normally like the flavors. The maple sugar was just overpowering and quite harsh. There was a delicate roasted nut flavor in the back n just a harsh biting, sugary mess. There were traces of metallic tones as well, and these just added to the harshness.

Had on-tap at Wedge Brewery. Served in a pint glass.
A- Pours a light brown color with a 1/2 in h beige head that retains very well before becoming an 1/8 inch head. Thick, resilient lacing.
S- Grainy, toasty malt and a decent hop aroma that's not really noticed until after a few good whiffs and swirls.
T- Straightforward toasty malt that has a light sweetness and mild hop bitterness. Very smooth but flavorful enough at the outset. Slight lingering bitterness. Bready
M- The nitro feel is kind of lost in this not only because it's not soft enough but it's also served too cold. The body is also just a bit too light to warrant a nitro serving.
O- A good beer but not something I would recommend be served on nitro be aide of the aforementioned issues.

brewed with 150 pounds of toasted hemp seeds
a: served in a standard shaker pint glass, Derailed is a medium brown in color, slightly hazed, with thin but persistent coating of fizzy off-white carbonation
s: a pale malt backing provides a clean backdrop for the nutty and toasty aromas from the hemp seeds, very clean and bright with citrus pith hops, earthy, rye mild but adds some range
m: carbonation lively and a touch spritzy on the palate with a light-medium body - seems a touch thin to me
t: nutty and toasty hemps seeds are the prevalent flavor, pale malts provide a clean structure, hops provide a balancing bitterness and simple citrus pith flavors, mostly dry, very crisp finish
o: it's a bit simple but I don't wanna call it bland - it does a nice job making use of the toasty, oily hemp seed character that could be easily covered up, refreshing and drinkable
draft at the brewpub on a fine late Spring evening

On nitro-tap at Wedge Brewing Company, Asheville, NC
A: The beer is slightly hazy brownish amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high dense beige head that consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of herbs are present in the nose, which I presume must come from the hemp seeds.
T: The taste has herbal flavors along with notes of nutty malts. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The nitro-tap really imparts nice properties to the mouthfeel and appearance of this beer, elevating it a notch.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, amber coloring, with a filmy, off-white, clingy head. Nose of sugary caramel, dank moss and grass, spiced grains, and roasted notes. Flavors are on a caramel sweet backbone, with roasted notes, and toasted hemp highlights. The aftertaste is more of the roasted and grassy notes, with a tangy, off-balanced linger in the finish. This one misses the mark a bit.
