A: Poured into a snifter to a clear light gold topped by a finger of dense white head that fades to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells oaky, bready and a little fruity with some slight pepper notes
T: Taste is oak and fruitiness with some light peppery heat, bready malts and honey like sweetness. Slightly grassy at times as well. Swallow is more oak and light peppers but mostly fruits drizzled in honey.
M: This beer is medium in body with carbonation that is just a bit under prickly and a crisp but drying finish.
O: The American Strong Ale style is a bit of a catch all so this one has some stiff competition. The beer has a lot going on but it's just trying to do too much. I think a spotlight series would have allowed each state to shine a bit better than the amalgamation that this beer became. It's good but I wouldn't seek it out over other options.

I poured around 7oz. of this into a tulip glass for the initial tasting. Has bright golden/yellowish color with a misty transparency and some film. Smells of pear, grapefruit and maybe some honey and orange but flares the nostrils with some spice. The tastes pretty much resembles that of the smell spot on and the mouthfeel is medium. The carbonation smooths it out. Overall it's a beer I'd drink again especially if made available in 12oz. bottles. Good.

Clear yellow with a big pile of foam in the Troubadour tulip. A year and a half in the 750 ml bottle purchased at Susan's Fine Wine & Spirits in Santa Fe. Smells like honey with a whiff of old fruit. On the syrupy side, but then there's the tart edge. A peculiar combination of tangy, sweet, bitter, and hot.

This is mostly just sweet and alcohol tasting with some kind of fruit punch taste. The slight chile heat is interesting, but there's a plasticky note in the back of the throat. It's surprising how the heat takes a while to emerge. This might have been better fresh, but it's a malange of odd perfumey and herbal notes with a bitter finish.

Hazy dark gold with film. 3.75
Boozy candied orange nose. 3.75
Peach, lots of orange, some prickly pine, and herb oil hops. 3.75
Fizzy, tinny, dry, hot, smooth. 3.75

Lots of orchard fruit more so than classic C hops. I certainly wouldn’t have guessed prickly pear or green chilis (and I don't know how old this is) though every bit of the 9.5% is there. May be interesting as a concept beer, but I’d just rather drink Myrcenary. 4

Thanks to Tieman for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, earth, spice, and corn tortilla aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, grain, honey, cardboard, fruit, spice, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting concept, but the aromas and flavors are fairly muddled and make it difficult to pick out each of the ingredients on their own.

Serving type: bottle.

Look: Pours a copper cloudy brew with decent but dissipating head that leaves webbed lacing on the glass.

Smell: Sweet fruity notes with funky wood and grass behind that and a faint wisp of bready malts.

Taste: A sweet strong brew with very present wood and earthy notes.. As the glass warms hops are present but, I would not consider this too hop forward. It is very well balanced and totally drinkable. A bit of boozy warmth hits the throat on the finish..

Feel: Very light mouthfeel.. Smooth on the palate.

Overall: A very well thought and balanced brew. The only con is the price point which comparable to other corked 750 ml beers in its class..
