(Served in a globe glass)
A- This beer pours a very murky deep copper orange body with a thin beige foam that is supported by strands of microbubbles that appear close to the glass.

S- The green hop hint finishes with a strong pecan nut aroma. There is some green woody aromas to the hops that turn into endive as it opens but they stay soft.

T- The full taste of butter pecans leads to a watery taste and a faint pungent woody bitterness lingers in the finish.

M- the medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz and no astringency or alcohol heat noticed

O- This beer is very odd but not bad. I was hoping for and IPA but there was really no hops noted at all. The butter pecan flavor was one of the best nut flavors I have tasted in a beer. I which this was dated cause I have no idea if this was the intended flavor or the aged flavor?

Thanks NFLMVP for these cans.

Pours a clear deep copper with a nice off-white head of thick foam. The foam settles a decent bit and leaves the walls of the pint glass coated in a thick wispy layer of lace. Tiny bubbles constantly rise from the bottom of the brew.

Big bitter hop aroma. NIce juicy grapefruit and bitter lemon with a touch of orange peel. Some pine and then a nice bit of sweet caramel malt to balance things nicely. Touch of biscuit in there too.

Nice caramel and a touch of toasted malt sweetness up front. Prickly carbonation brings the hops out on the tongue. Plenty of lemon and then a nice grapefruit note before bitter pine resin moves in and rides things out into the aftertaste.

Great sessionable IPA. Wish it made it's way around these parts. We can always use more great canned offerings.

poured out a very clear golden color. About 1/4 inch of head, with good lacing as I drink it down. Lots and lots of hops come through in the nose on this one. Tastes just like it smells. Good body to the beer as well. Might just be one of the best IPA's I've ever had.

Price: $2.00 Served In: Pilsner Glass
