3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to strykzone. Deep red, fairly clear. Small odd white head. Moderately bitter with a very toasty and sweet malt backbone. Almost a dusty note to the flavor but I get that from Munich malt sometimes. Ok but nothing great.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is amber/light brown with a creamy, off white head. Bottle is a bit over carbonated. Aroma is dominated by citrus and floral hop. Taste is where this beer misses the mark. Starts with a nice caramel and biscuit malt flavor and gives way to a distinct foot like taste as the hop bite kicks in. Must have something to do with the balance of the citrusy Centennial hop with the caramel malts. Mouthfeel is medium, and finish is a nice hop bite with a slightly lingering stickiness and bitterness. This sounded like a beer I’d really like, but it doesn’t come thru

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Way overcarbed......a 10 minute pour. Pours a reddish hued chestnut with an enormous head. Aroma is very green flavor hop with lemon and grapefruit. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, taste is pretty much all citrusy hop, slight bitterness with a tailing hint of bread and a slight tang......the overcarbing was a frustration.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy reddish amber with a big fluffy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is piney grapefruity centennial hops with some sweet nutty malts.
The flavor is nutty malts with some fruity bitterness but subdued hop flavor. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and quite watery.
Overall, a decent hoppy red.
