I've been so excited about this release, and pleased to grab a bottle today at HEB Bunker Hill. Poured from bottle into my Jester King Farmhouse glass. Pours a nearly transparent dark orange color, about a finger of white fluffy head. VERY different from the previous Wytchmaker version in appearance and carbonation. Smell- wet grass, barnyard funk! juicy fruit, almost a candied orange smell. Tropical mango. A marraige of funky and tropical hops. Beautiful. Giving smell alone a 5. Taste- wet cut grass, some barnyard funk and some bitterness- a complex blend of flavor. Lovely malt sweetness and tropical hops- mango, orange rind all over my teeth. This is tremendously more complex and clean with flavors than the original Wytchmaker. Just an amazing brew. Bravo.

Pours a hazy orange with hints of red. Thick foamy white head. The smell is the strongest part. Farmhouse funk. Citrus. Grass. Hops. Yeast. Grass. The taste follows suit. Spicy citrus hops and rye bitterness. Grassy, yeasty hoppy goodness. Labeled as a farmhouse ipa and it fits this description perfectly. The combination of hops and farmhouse flavors compliment nicely.

As usual, JK knocks it out of the park yet again. A very solid hybrid that is reasonably priced

Usually I won't go for a large bottle of IPA. But this was Jester King and it had a cool label....

Glad I bought it. This a really nice beer. Pours light golden, almost straw color. A bit hazy. Nice big rocky white head, great lacing.

Aroma is hop forward, citrus and tropical. Hints of breadiness linger, but are overpowered.

Flavors come from the world of citrus and tropical hops, with a bit of earthiness sprinkled in. White pepper here and there. Not much rye from a rye IPA, but enough to notice if you think about it. The biscuit is subtle with subtle spice. Tropical hops flavor with the citrus hops bite. Really easy drinking. Great beer

750 ml bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Orange and yellow cloudy beer with a small head. The head doesnt dissipate.
S: A mix of IPA and saison, some minor hop and pine notes combine with an earthy lemon flavor, very cool.
T: A minor hoppy beer on the front blends into an saison on the end. Some hop notes but not too many ending with a perfect saison. Very few if any malt notes.
M: A lot more hops, perfectly balanced and some minor lemon notes on the end.
O: Really good and interesting. I think this is the most interesting beer Ive had this year and Im very excited to try other JK beers.
