3.5/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle into a snifter. The brew appears a clear copper color with a yellowish stained head a finger strong that holds well. A full wall of lace sticks to the glass.

The smell is quite herbal with hops contrasted by a caramel grain backing. A bit of solvent alcohol is also noted. No real mint aspect protrudes beyond the typical herbal component of the hops.

The taste is quite bitter. Some herbal and sulfuric character blends in with a carbonic bite. Some neutral solvent alvohol is quite apparent with an added tannic bitterness that is bitey and drying on the tongue.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is quite bitter almost to fault with very warming alcohol. I dont get much mint flavor but its more like an added/accenting bitterness. Was cool to say I tried it but I doubt this is something I would revisit.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

A: pours with a large head and a thick honey yellow color. A to of visible carbonation and lacing.
S: not really mint but as others have pointed out there is some spearmint and yeast. Nothing too potent.
T: different is what they drove for and warmed to be what they got. Some mintish and slight lemon in there. A kind of flavor mix between an unfiltered wheat and normal IPA...odd
M: heavier than it should be with a sour back end that lingers unpleasantly.
O: different is all I can say about this one. Not worth anything other than a flight glass unfortunately.

Serving type: on-tap

3.61/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle pours a sickening opaque light brown color with a modest cap of off-white head. This beer is so cloudy, I cant even see my fingers behind the glass - not very cool.

Nose is definitely minty - more spearmint than peppermint. I really dont get much else to be honest. The mint does smell natural, fragrant and good.

Taste is minty as well and actually plays pretty well with the hops, which come on pretty full force after the initial mint blast. Malts are substantial (toffee, light toast and mild caramel) but dont impede the mint and hops. I cant believe the ABV is 8%, the beer integrates it well. Despite my initial misgivings on a Mint IPA and the sordid appearance, I am enjoying the flavor of this well enough. I would probably even go so far as to say this is the best beer I have had from No Label. I hadnt pulled the trigger on a six-pack purchase of this due to the previous offerings I have had from NL, picked this bottle up as a single. I think I would even buy a sixer of this, especially if I had a couple upcoming BIFs, this would be a fun beer to share with others.
