Pours a chill-hazed bronze/amber with a thumb of cream colored head. Never quite clears up, above average lacing & head retention

S: Pineapple, grapefruit & breadyness

T: Grapefruit, a touch of woody hops, breadyness & some pear up front. Apricot mixed with much grapefruit & grapefruit pith, plus a touch of aspirin & just little bit of pineapple, a bit of peppery hops as this warms. Finishes juicy, peppery & citrussy

MF: Medium bodied, subtle carbonation, nicely balanced, juicy

Super easy to drink, somewhat hop forward for the style, but it works. Not as mind-blowing as some of the other beers Prairie makes, but is a solid/welcome addition to the Okie beer scene. This will be in the rotation as long as I can get it

Received in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice chill haze golden honey hue with a solid fat one finger creamy white head that fades to leave a thin creamy blanket. No real lacing though. 3.75 (x .05 = .188)

S - Aromas of lightly sweet malts, tea leaves, juicy fruit chewing gum, faint pineapple. Rather interesting aroma, a nice tropical bubblegum aroma going on. 4.5 (x .2 = .9)

T - Taste is not quite as good as the nose. Sweeter malts, lots of herbal tea leaf flavour, light caramel, very crisp, maybe some light pear. The finish is very light bitterness. Interesting hop choice here; this beer is fresh so the lack of tropical juicy fruit gum on the taste that was there on the nose is deliberate and unfortunate. 4 (x .45 = 1.8)

M - Mouthfeel is very crisp and clean, very nice carbonation, very light drinking. 4.25 (x .1 = .425)

O - Overall, this was an interesting beer. All about the hop choice and while it led to a very pleasant nose I wish it translated over onto the taste. That being said, a very solid offering from Prairie. 4 (x .2 = .8)

Thanks Herf!

Appearance: medium orange, hazy, bright off white head, two fingers, some lacing.

Aroma: floral, grassy, herbal hops, some mild pine with light sweet juicy fruity sweetness.

Taste: dry, grassy hops, light citrus, rustic yeast esters, light citrus fruit sweetness.

Mouthfeel: lighter bodied, creamy feel, good solid carbonation, clean and easy drinking.

Overall: well done, solid pale ale. Doesn't push any limits, but is easily quaffable and tasty without a whole lot of bitterness.

12oz bottle served in a Dog Fish Head IPA glass

A - Pours a hazy/ruddy burnt orange, firm 2 finger head that droops average lacing.

S - Earthy yeast, green vegetal hops, green peppers, chives, spicy floral, lemon, not-sweet grapefruit rind, rustic, peppery, generic pale malts.

T - Bittering hops upfront, earthy floral, rustic woody hops, lemon oils, spicy herbal notes, bitter grapefruit oils runs strong against pale toasted barley, citrus comes out more as it warms along with some resinous pine. The finish is bitter greens with toasted grassy afterthought.

M - Full bodied, hefty feel, moderate whipped/creamy carbonation,

I like the different hop profile. Non-typical and complex. Plenty of hops with a rustic yeast pushing back. The more I drink this the more I like it. This is a stand out among it's class.
