First thing you are going to notice is the smell... and oh man, you're in for something unique. A cacophony of vibrant smells straight out of your herbs and spices cabinet. Cinnamon, basil, ginger, and oregano with lots of cayenne spice. Some grapefruit in the background. I'm all about great smelling beer, and I'm totally digging this. Unique, pleasant, fresh and tantalizing. Pour is nothing extraordinary; hazy amber, good lacing. If you like the smell, and are ok with some wackiness in your beer, I think you will dig this. Tons of herbs up front, lots of oregano and ginger. Nice hops and citrus with some black tea in the middle and some nice spice from the cayenne at the end. Surprisingly well balanced considering the ingredients and gamut of flavors. Super clean mouthfeel; dry, crisp and refreshing. I'm actually a big fan of this beer now and was pleasantly surprised. Check it out if you're looking for something off the beaten path.

Bottle served in pint glass.
A-pours a light yellow with a mild head and moderate cloudiness.
S-an herbal aroma, like tea. Light hoppy smell.
T-Taste like a west coast IPA, the tea and spices enhanced the hoppy taste.
M-7% ABV. But couldn't even tell easy drinking beer, medium body with nice amount of carbonation
O-Nice solid beer. Would have again.
