Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: StaveHooks on 12-22-2012

Prairie Hop is our hop driven saison. This beer is packed with Simcoe and Citra hops. Notes of peach, mango, and tangerine can be found in the flavor and aroma of this beer. The beer finishes dry which helps the hops jump out of the glass flavor wise.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

750 ml bottle corked and caged poured into a 3 Floyds wine glass

A- Allot of carbonation, 3 finger head dissipated quickly, to thin bubbly ring around the glass. The color is a beautiful burnt orange/brown, slight haziness.
S- The aroma is very nice, big hops upfront, nice sweetness comes out in the aroma, must be the citra hops. Mango, grapefruit, pine, grapefruit, some malt in the backend.
T- Taste is very similar to the nose, less sweet than i anticipated, the hops are present, slight bitterness but is mellowed out by the malt backbone, grassy notes, pine, grapefruit, slight peppery notes.
M- Light mouthfeel, very easy drinkability, dry on the finish.
O- Very nice, not sure what i was expecting, i was not expecting it to be so hop forward, i very much enjoyed this one, would of preferred to share with someone, not a beer i would typically drink on my own. Very satisfied with my first Prairie beer. (917 characters)

A lot of tropical fruit and citrus hops flavors. Solidly bitter. A moderate spice from the yeast. (97 characters)

perfectly stated packaging, opens to reveal a most excellent aroma. It pours with a rich golden straw color, crowned by dense pale head that slowly reduces to a thin ever present visually pleasing icing for this wonderful slice of rich cake. The taste is incredible, it as if someone has taken my favorite IPA and Blended it with the best of Belgian saisons. this beer left me satisfied yet wanting another like a a drug addict needing another fix. (448 characters)

This seemed to be a nice hybrid between an IPA and a Saison.

In a snifter the beer was a clear gold color with a very thin tan head.

Interesting aroma. Citrus, sweet malt like an IPA. Earthy hops and spice like a saison.

Lemon, orange, pineapple taste. Earthy hops. Spice.

Wow! Really tasty. Soft in the mouth. (314 characters)

Pours a hazy, vibrant orange with thin white head that slowly dissipates leaving little trace. Wonderful aroma of peaches, pineapple, mango, grass and flowers. Flavors of stone fruit, citrus and a touch of yeast. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp, clean finish. Complex beer with many layers. So far I'm a fan of Prairie Artisan Ales. (354 characters)

Looks and feels like a tripel, but tastes like a blend between that and a saison. I would have expected the dry-hopping to add more floral notes to this, but instead it seems to have mellowed it somewhat. There is an interesting amount of hops late in the swallow, however. Solid entry from Prairie Artisan Ales, in my opinion. (328 characters)
