Juniper IPA pours a bronze color with a nice long lasting and lacing head. There is a sweeter aroma with a mellow sweet juniper fruity backbone, and some floral hop flavors. The taste has a nice mellow floral flavors, and nice mellow sweetness from the juniper berries. Nice blend of flavors, nothing is overpowering and comes together nicely. Overall its a nice beer, well put together, and easy to drink.

Served in a shaker pint glass.

There's some awesome chicken going on at this "cookout", so let's have some beer, shall we? This one pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises pine resin, light biscuit, light honey, a touch of spruce, and flowers. The taste brings in more of the same, the pine being cut by the spruce (likely the juniper, but it comes across more spruce-y to me), and a touch of old cedar tossed in for good measure. A stronger biscuit-y backbone has been established as well. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, an alright IPA, but the juniper doesn't really help matters too much (nor does it truly hinder things that much, either), and the resulting hop-influenced flavor profile leaves a bit to be desired.

I was utterly disgusted the moment this vitriolic waste offended my taste palette. I enjoyed a sampler of the Samuel Winter Seasonal offerings, but this stuck out as the most utterly repulsive drink I have ever had the misfortune of placing in my mouth. I am genuinely convinced that any positive review of the beer comes from a misplaced attempt at sophistication. I will stick to Miller High Life while you all enjoy your highly overrated flow of piss-brau.
