adamjackson (257) – Canaan, USA – MAY 11, 2012

Picked this up at Hunger Mountain Co-Op in Vermont. Stuck it in the fridge, poured into a Hill Farmstead Glass and enjoyed at 55 Degrees F. (Photos are from the pour I did for my GF) 

A – 2-Finger Head, crystal clear. SRM of 8, dark golden brown. TONS of really creepy looking sediment in this beer. Lots of floaters / suspended things. Not sure what they are but oh-well. 

S – Big garlic, peppers and mustard powder scent. Big spice profile followed by a fresh cut grass scent and some funky yeast. Bits of citrus. 

T – Wow. Uber spicy this beer. Nice funky bitter / caramel taste. Bits of lemon (citrus) and grassy taste. The spice is nice but not preferred but just a personal preference. 

M – 90/10 carbonation, lingering tart and lemon taste with a bit of coriander. Nice dry finish. 

O – This is a decent beer. Not great but decent.
