Batch 801/803
Bottled 5-25-2011
Hefty price tag of $16.99

A- Slightly hazy orange/copper pour. Two finger off white soapy head that deflates leaving a quarter inch cap and strings of lace where the head once sat.

S- Definitely getting the lemon and grape right off the bat. There is a mandarin sweetness with a grapefruit citrus splash. Coriander is there to balance the sweet. Wet hay and slight funk poke their head out to remind you this is a JP creation.

T- Tart grapes, coriander with a touch of pepper. Bright citrus juices with a dry lingering aftertaste. The sour and funk are there but take a back seat to everything else. Very bright and refreshing.

M- Medium bodied, cleansing carbonation.

O- I have yet to be disappointed by these guys. They are quickly becoming my favorite brewery. To the point where if it's JP and I haven't had it, I'll probably enjoy it.

The prices are a bit steep so these are treats more than regular offerings.

Appearance - bright pale brass colour with a persistent, creamy head.

Smell - The aroma of this beer is very complex - apple cider, overripe tropical fruit, moderate levels of barnyard/wet mitten funk, and a gentle spiciness.

Taste and Texture - Slightly on the fuller side of medium-bodied, with a hint of caramel malt amidst complex flavours of apple cider, mineral, cooked peaches, and spice. The finish is slightly funky and dry - much drier than you would expect from the mouthfeel and flavour - and spicy.
