08/10/09- On tap at the Brewery.
Presentation- Via the tap into a standard pint glass.
Appearance- Mid range golden color. Smaller 1/4 inch head, but leaves some light lace trails behind.
Smell- A bit of toasted malts as well as some light floral hops.
Taste- Not much in the hops dept. Seems like pellets were used rather than the actual hop. A bit of a lemony flavor with a hint of pine with a semi deep toasted malty flavor leading the way.
Mouthfeel- Seems a touch watery with a very light aftertaste of bitter fruit rind. Medium carbonation level.
Drinkability- I'll pass on this one, but it's sooo damn nice having a brewery less than a mile away from both my Aunt and Uncles house and Grandmother...

A - yellow with a golden hue. Very small head that disappeared quickly. Thin lacing sticks to the glass the whole time.
S - citrus hoppyness. Very good hop aroma.
T - pretty solid IPA. There is a nice hop backbone that is balanced very nicely by a malt.
M - the mouth feel is average.
Overall I will order this beer again. The blacksmith is one of my favorite breweries to visit.

Brenda and I drove about a mile off of the highway to checkout Blacksmith..
It looked locked up tight.. but Brenda said she saw somebody inside.. after some knocking on windows.. a young guy motioned us in.. The front door was open the entire time. It was early, so I couldn't get a taste.. so I went with the brewer's suggestion.. "Cutthroat IPA" for the growler fill.
Cracked it with the Boise Beer Boys... I poured this into my smaller La Trappe glass.
Lite amber with a hoppy haze to it.
Nose is citric with a bit more than wanted toasty maltiness.
Flavor is pretty much the same as the aroma ... more hoppiness and a nice caramel maltiness... but.. there is a bunch of "toasty maltiness" that seems a tad out of place.. The body and carbonation ar pretty much square..
This is a pretty good brew.. but personally I would like to see less specialty malts and a tad less sweetness.... it'll help the hops shine as they should.
Blacksmith is a truly beautiful brewery... I wish we would have settled in there the night before and hung out.... The atmosphere was fantastic.. even when I was alone... Good luck... break a leg.. brew great beer... Etc.. I think this one is a winner.
