3.1/5 rDev -14.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Appearance: Very cloudy.Reddish brown in color. Very opaque. Minimal head and lacing on glass.
Smell: Hoppy aroma with a caramel like overtone.
Taste: Very tart-not citrusy like most hopped up beers. Malt presence is minimal.
Mouthfeel: Good-slighlty oily with medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Not very drinkable due to poor taste.
Overall not a very good beer. A different take on the style but not satisfying.
*Note-I bought this at Capones-no date on bottle-could have factored into the quality of this particular bottle I sampled.
Serving type: bottle

On tap at the brewery. Pours amber colored with a small white head. Aroma of pine, some grass, caramel malts. Flavor follows the smell closely with light bitter, pine notes, caramel malts, light sweetness. Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not bad but not particularly impressed either.
Had this again while out at Jerome Bettis' Grille, and it tasted much better. Lots more bite and just seemed fresher than the keg at the brewery, which is strange. Anyway, worth a try and I guess I'd have it again if I were in the mood.
Serving type: on-tap
