Bought at Julio's and poured into my Duvel tulip. Bottle date of 8/26/14

A - Poured a nice crystal clear golden ue with a good creamy two finger head that faded to leave lots of nice sticky side lacing. Good light creamy blanket never really goes away either. Quite nice. 4.5 (x .05 = .225)

S - Aromas of spicy hops, really digging the Bravo. Get loads of Amarillo too, very nice earthy notes. Good honey notes, light malt sweetness. Lighter lager yeast notes that are the standard for Jack's Abby. 4.25 (x .2 = .85)

T - Taste is similar to the nose with really nice earthy lightly grassy hops. Loads of spicy hops too, almost rye like. The hops are pleasant with good spice and earthiness. Malts offer a nice soft sweetness, light honey balances out the spicy hops. No alcohol of course is noticeable and there are nice lager notes as well. Very clean. 4 (x .45 = 1.8)

M - Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, finish is not all that bitter. Quite nice 4.25 (x .1 = .425)

O - Overall, a solid hop profile change for Hopstitution. Much, much different than the original beer thanks to the Bravo, Amarillo, and Mandarina hops. Interesting offering. 4 (x .2 = .8)
