3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft sample @ Indy Winterfest. Sweet tropical fruit, caramel malt, and earthy hops aroma. Hazy light amber with a large off-white head., Musty orange/cat pee hops, and caramel malt flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not a big fan of the hops in this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ brewery and served in snifter: Deep golden hue with a small frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has light onion, kiwi, apricot and dragonfruit esters, bready and biscuity malts. The taste starts very tropical and also oniony herbal notes along with a quick dash of sweet malts. Hint of minty undertone which I liked. The mouth feel is smooth with a very sort finish... too short IMO. It is okay but not really digging the El Dorado hop profile.
