12 oz bottle poured to snifter

Lovely clear dark golden color, a bit over a finger of white head, persistent bubbles after that settles... a bit of sticky lacing

Nice floral hoppy aroma, slight breadiness, vague piney, grassy note.

Taste is heavy on hop flavor, but well balanced. Some roasted malt and brown sugar notes in the aftertaste, not to complex but really nice.

Mouthfeel is heavy for 5%, good carbonation helps, but probably this brews weakest point... I'd expect more refreshing and less meaty

My first Mother Road brew... good looking with nice label art. The other elements aren't quite as amazing as it looks, but a very decent brew.

look: 4 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Color is medium amber in the tulip glass. Attractive fine-grained foam. Slight plastic aroma. Some toasted malt with a bitterish dishwater tang. Some substance to the body.It tastes bacterial at first sip, though maybe it's just an unfortunate choice of ingredients.

There are definitely some aromatic hops rather than the heavy bittering ones. It's just that the flavor is so peculiar. Did they pick some wild hops down by the drainage ditch? IBUs are rated at just 27, but it has an odd bitter edge. The aftertaste is over-steeped herbal tea. Looks are nice, but after half a glass I'm heading for the sink. From the 12 oz bottle bought at AJ's Fine Foods in Chandler.
