12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a hazed, dingy amber-hued body with a small, altogether brief, whitish head.
Smell: Pine and paper, soapy resins, citric citrus, grasses and muddy, muddled yeast cakes. Oh, some weak toast and pale malts.
Taste: Pale malts, a snap of grains, and a moist mealy quality. Low, short-lived sweetness. Citric orange, resins, tropical fruits, and grassy hops backed with an earthy yeastiness. Moderate bitterness. Hint of shredded mint leaf. Bitter, drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Uninteresting, a bit disappointing. Just keep telling yourself "it's for charity, it's for downtrodden animals." Think of the animals!

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a pinot noir wine glass. Bottled on 02/10/14 on bottle neck. Single purchased at Total Wine (Norwalk, CT) for $1.99.
A: Crystal clear orange-amber with 1-finger of nearly white, small-bubbled head with good retention and plenty of lacing all over the glass.
S: Mosaic-y hops aroma with a lot of berry and melon aromas mingling with some floral and lemon-lime citrus. Maltiness is crackery and bready. No yeast or alcohol component. Great nose overall.
T: Unfortunately the flavor doesn't measure up to the nose with the maltiness falling flat, flabby in nature, which doesn't mesh too well with the floral and minty soap-like hoppiness. No alcohol or yeast esters though. Something happened with the combination of caramel malts and hops which really didn't work. Not horrible, but the soapy aftertaste is a little astringent and a little tough.
M: Drinks a little more like an amped-up APA than an IPA with a smaller body than it should have and softer carbonation.
O: Pretty disappointing beer from Weyerbacher overall -- there is a recipe or fermentation problem with this beer, as it has a soapy quality -- probably mor eint he hops-malt combination that is not working.
