From notes: had on tap at Crescent Moon Ale House 12/29.

Served in a pint glass. Body is light amber in color and the head dissipates rather quickly to a small ring.

Smell is remarkable: the mango comes through consistently without making too much commotion. The sweet fruity aroma are complimented very well by citrusy hops.

Taste is fruity and bitter. Sweet malts provide a sturdy and necessary backbone, creating a great balance.

Mouthfeel is of a smooth, medium body and carries the complex taste across the palate in appropriate form.

This was a great beer. The fruit was just strong enough to leave a pleasant impression. If you are in the region and this beer is available, you've got to give it a shot.

Serving type: on-tap

This must be a very new brew as I had it on tap at Red's Ale House near Iowa City last night, but it is not in the database. It was a good looking brew, clear, golden/amber, with a decent fluffy white head that stayed for a bit and also left some lacing as it fell.

But the aroma was amazing! I suppose if skunk (or more accurately skunk smelling weed) isn't something you like, perhaps you'd not like it so much, at least at first. Because strong skunky weed emanates from this one up front, though it fades into a blend of a rich fruity blend of citrus and tropical fruity aromas (including some mango, but maybe not enough to name the beer for) that, in my experience, may perhaps be unmatched. It was extraordinarily aromatic, with a plethora of influences that blended together in a wonderfully fruity medley. They must have dumped a huge load of dry hops in this stuff.

The taste followed the nose, though it wasn't quite as profoundly fruity and bold as the nose. Early was primarily tropical and citrus fruit, peach, grapefruit and even mango coming to mind. Bitterness was modest and balancing. As it warmed the malty sweetness and the overall balance of the brew became more apparent. This beer, at least last night, has tremendous hop flavor with modest bitterness, nice malty character underneath, and good overall balance.

Carbonation was good, with medium full body, and was smooth and easy drinking.

Wow! Supreme smelling, great tasting, hoppy brew from the Cornhusker state.

Serving type: on-tap
