Bottle share at Proof Brewing Co. Golden orange in color with good white head. Nice collar with decent lacing. Smell is a great light malt profile, some spice and dry earth. Taste is also nicely spiced, surprisingly hoppy in a very lightly bitter way (mostly spice), some butterscotch. Highly carbonated and light body with being watery.

Let's keep it simple. I love fff. But this is NOT a saison, not even close. It's an old ale if anything. Very simple beer... Lots of caramel malt. Abv well masked. Not a multidimensional experience and certainly not the typical FFF hopbomb. But aptly named, Razorhoof will slice and dice your ass with plenty of malty goodness. I definitely suggest this as a house beer swig, but I wouldn't hunt it down as a collector unless you like sugary beers to throw in the cellar. Happy Ales...

Let's take the metal influence of this beer's label and High on Fire band collaboration and put it on hold for what is...these brewers like heavy music and heavy beer that's a given based on the history I have with them. This beer appears a deep cloudy copper body with light khaki head flowing forth! I'm going to light up a Drew Estate Unico series Feral Flying Pig as I drink this beer a cigar that has every opportunity to be metal whenever it wants to be. Aroma has hints of bready malts that linger with each sniff, it's actually an alluring beer it doesn't hit me up front with whatever it wants to be. With those beautiful malts I get citrus tones, and hints of Belgian style spice not a bad mix by any means. Dried apricot and other fruits explode on the nose and palate it has those characteristics that I enjoy in their hoppy offerings along with a muted breadiness and yeast character that continues to amaze me every time I try it. Each gulp adds complexity of the bready yeast notes and herbal spicy hop additions...definitely complex ale. Tropical fruit big malt layers binds a hoppy American Saison just about perfectly with any beer I've had in this style thus far. Mouthfeel has even flowing carbonation but the body gives it an oily texture that bounds to the palate the way that I want it. Overall drinkability is good I've had two over the course of today I can say that it's consistent and has not changed.

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

A - Hazy cherry brown and copper body with an off white head

S - Light lemon, spice and wet socks with really not much of a nose 2:75

T - Bitter hops crossed with lemon. A light funk, banana and clove linger in the finish. Bit boozy as well. Light spice and some bitterness from the hops cones thru near the end

M - Really thick with minimal carbonation.

O - Too much going on with the saison aspects hidden by the hops but the hops not able to shine thru with the Saison

The Razor Hoof has a hard candy root beer taste...at least to me. The beer was poured carefully to avoid the massive sediment at the bottom of the bottle. The color was a clear amber with thin white head that is lacing. The scent does have some hop....but I am getting root beer. The taste has a big conflict between bitter hops, sweet malt...and alcohol. The mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall this beer is not something I would chose to drink again. The taste is rough and the abv even rougher.

A strange, hybrid beer, it actually does look like a cross between a saison and an IPA. It's got the golden orange saison color with a cloudy look, but the head, while it's there, slightly resembles the meringue-like look of an IPA. Little retention, but a nice lace.

Again, clearly a hybrid of the two styles with a tart, fruity original burst of scents with an acidic citrus waft later on. As it begins to warm, pine and grapefruit start to evolve.

Three for three as the taste is a gentle blend of styles. Tangy fruit up front with a citrusy pine following behind.

You get the best of both worlds with that consisent kick off of tart, tanginess of a Saison with a gentle bittering finish of an IPA. The blend works really well together to make it very drinkable...each style complementing the other.

I let this sit in the cellar a little longer than I should have but it was still really impressive. I can only imagine what it tastes like fresh. Overall, it's a nice beer that goes down easily. Just sent a bottle to Washington for my left coast friend to enjoy, a much fresher bottle.
