3.84/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - pours a deep murky amber brown. Huge foaming head. The off-white foam is thick and mouse-like while still having bubbly, fizzy parts. Takes a while to subside to drink. Leaves some thick lacing.

S - funky. Earthy. Herbal. At first the nose is doughy with an earthy with a funkiness i can only assume is partially from the rye grains. As it warms piney and citrusy american hops shine through. Sweet notes of blackstrap molasses and hints of resin round it out. 3.5

T - doughy malts with notes of cereal, sweet caramel, and forest floor. Classic american hop bitterness come through in the center with a touch more intensity closer to the backend. Citrus rind flavors blend with leafy and piny notes. More grainy (rye+black malt) notes on the backend. Finish is a lingering citric bitterness and pine.

M - medium bodied. Thick creamy texture. High carbonation with large prominent bubbles.

O - very interesting ale. I like how much it changes as it warms. Glad i finally got a chance to try some texas beer.

Batch #8 from June 13, 2013 poured into JK snifter glass.

A: pours a murky opaque light orange. Big head which recedes into uneven patches of foam. Slightly overcarbonated.

S: the aroma is very recognizable for JK and it's farmhouses, funky, oak barrels, dry, cracker, milk, grapefruit, fresh.

T: long sharp bitterness strikes at the beggining and carries thru to the back of the palate, very similar to grapefruit in terms of acidity and dryness.

M: dry, tartic, acidic, envolving, chewy.

O: this is an IPA with a strongly marked flavor profile, it helds itself pretty well for a bottle 8 months old. Still showing it's true character and loving how it doesn't feel watered down. The time in the bottle feels like it allowed the beer to expand it's flavors and aromas gained thru the barrel aging process. Very strong on the nose, slightly less strong, but still with a pretty decent kick on the palate. And if you let enough time pass it will end giving your mouth a cool refreshed feeling!

An enjoyable brew from Jester King with good strong flavour

aroma: yeasty peach with wheat/cereal

taste: earthy, pine, grapes, spice, citrus. orange with white wine. Good malt backbone. Quite sweet with some back-end bitterness.

A big fan of the farmhouse/organic/local type philosophy behind the brewery. Quality beer.
