A rustic Mississippi Ale inspired by the Delta Blues. A sinister brew with a seductive balance of sweetness, resinous pine, and citrus aromas. Find yourself at the "crossroads" of alluring malt character and deviant hop backbone while celebrating the blues legends.

From the can, it pours a nice hazy amber with a nice head that lasts and leaves a bit of lace. In the nose, I get malt and some citrus. In the mouth, malt forward with a hoppy ending.

Looked good. Clear, dark burgundy with a small, cream colored head. It smelled very sweet and somewhat boozy. tasted overly sweet. Boozy. Very little hop bitterness for balance.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a clear consistency. There was a huge, creamy, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: Kind of a boozy aroma, with some pine, malt, and fruit mixed in.

T: Tasted of a little bit of citrus (lemon), a lot of pine, a whole boatload of malt, some hops (especially in the finish), and a bit of caramel. In theory, this flavor should be better than it is. Unfortunately the malt simply dominates everything else.

F: A highly carbonated beer with a somewhat harsh, dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Overall, this beer is something of a misfire. Could have been better.

4.03/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Rose gold with egg shell cap and good lacing.

Aroma: Nice, sweet malt followed by notes of citrus and conifer.

Taste: Rich, sweet malt, rounded hops dovetailing in, malt leads from entry to mid palate where the hops catch up and linger through the aftertaste. On first tasting I thought a Belgian Tripel made with American hops. This is a rather simple combination but it works.

Texture: Full medium if that makes any sense.

Overall: A good, uncomplicated blend of malt and hops. It does taste like a Belgian Tripel with American hops, citrusy, resiny, but not too much or too little. At 8% I won't be knocking 'em back but I can see this as an interesting change of pace.

Hazy amber/brown brew with a decent foamy white head that recedes slowly and leaves a bit of nice lacing.

The aroma is caramel malt with pine resin notes.

The taste is caramel malt, fresh biscuits, maybe a hint of honey and pears with definite pine resin and grapefruit developing and lingering in the aftertaste.

Nicely balanced between malt and hops. Light/medium mouthfeel, fairly smooth and drinkable, ABV is barely noticeable.

Altogether a pretty decent brew.
