3.85/5 rDev +6.6%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Peachy sunset brown with an utterly pathetic head that barely forms and then quickly runs away.
Smell: Grape juice, citric-herbal (rosemary?) hops, roasted nuts, and a very subtle touch of diacetyl... but mostly grape juice.
Taste: Surprisingly robust and round, with a fruity-toasty-nutty malt foundation that contrasts sweet notes of berries, grapes, peanuts, and sourdough bread with a sharp, peppery and pithy hop bitterness. Remarkably "aromatic," if that makes sense. Finish is like a guillotine of hops coming down on the malt sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and slick yet very crisp, well-suited to the sweet-then-sharp flavor.
Drinkability: Wow, what a pleasant surprise! Not much to look at or to inhale, but very pleasant to quaff. Well-balanced and winsome.

Nice bright chestnut ruddy-brown, not quite clear. It foamed up heavily when I popped the gap, and produced a nice thick off-white head, but it fell very quickly.
Woody, floral hops, with a bit of sweet fruitiness. I get a touch of bubbblegum, which puts me off a bit, but overall the aroma is good.
Wah. Funky. Off? Maybe not. I gave it a bunch of time to sit and breath between the initial impression and now. It's still a bit stale, with a strange harsh undercurrent, but it's mellowed into a decent ale. It's quite bitter, but reasonably well balanced.
Well, it's not great, but then again it might be a bit off. I'll probably give it another chance, because there is a fair bit of promise here.
