Serving glass: Poured from bottle into IPA glass.

Appearance: Slightly hazy amber-orange with impressive, off-white head and bubbly lacing.

Smell: Smells like an APA or IPA with citrus and toasted malts, but there are also a lot of floral and herbal notes.

Taste: Toasted malt backbone with citrusy hops (orange, tangerine, slight grapefruit). Sharp spicy and herbal finish. I can't pinpoint everything listed on the bottle, but can detect the lavender and mint. A little too floral for my liking, as it makes it a harsh finish for me.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, fairly full body, dry finish. Body seems a little too big and boozy for what they were going for.

Overall: This is an interesting, unique beer, but I am not sure I like all of the ingredients and the beer is simply too big to be summery as intended. I still like it quite a bit, but would have liked it better as a lower alcohol 12oz beer.

Appearance - Nice copper color, but the overly carbonated beer poured a huge head with minimal lacing that lasted

Smell - Like a great blend between a herb and floral garden, but not overly powerful. I was quite fearful of the beer, but wow did it impress.

Taste - crisp hops right out of the gate, followed by a sweeter after taste (rose petals?), with a nice floral taste and then the hops come back. All over the place with the taste

Mouthfeel - although it poured heavily carbonated this beer once settled had a great feel to it. smooth transition between the flavors that hid the alcohol well

Overall - this was a fun beer for a great cause. I was very skeptical of the beer at first, but it impressed me. Not an everyday beer, but a great change of pace

Pours an effervescent amber with w fingers of cream colored head. Stellar head retention & lacing, stays effervescent throughout (5.0)

S: Pineapples & mango, a little lavender (4.5)

T: Tropical fruit, breadyness, pears & orange peel up front. Some mint surfaces as this warms, plus pineapple, sage & white grape. Finishes dry with orchard & tropical fruit, lavender, plus a touch of hay (4.0)

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, nice balance (4.0)

Drinks fairly easy, a bit busy for the style, but nice none the less (4.0)

Clear orange/light copper colored pour with a foamy one-finger white head. Highly carbonated. Really nice citrusy aroma. Taste has a lot of hop bitterness upfront with orange, citrus, and pine flavors. Also has an interesting spice edge with an herbal and peppery flavor. Herbal flavor carries over to the mildly bitter finish. Different and interesting.

Smashingly good brew, almost like a double IPA yet still pretty pale ale like in character. Hoppy as hell, yet with a good malt backbone and an amazing refreshingness that just doesn't match with an ale this high in ABV.

This one is amazing for mouthfeel, it's right up there with a grand DIPA that has a semblance of balance with it's normally suppressed malty side.
