Notes/Commercial Description:
Just when you thought it was safe to come out of the root cellar, along comes Grainstorm, a big, wet wallop to the senses. In the glass, dark and turbulent clouds gather. A high-pressure system of pungent hops collides with a stationary front of barley, wheat, and rye. The forecast: a veritable monsoon of flavor, with surges of roasty malt, microbursts of hops, and a chance of golfball-sized hail. The extended outlook calls for unseasonably pleasant enjoyment.

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

Look:Dark caramel brown. Massive tan head.
smell: Nice and different. Piney hops up front with lightly spicy rye.
taste: much like the nose. a bit of sharp bitterness up front with an interesting finish, a mix of all that stuff, barley, rye and a little raosty malt.
overall: Pleasant and different. Nice job.
