3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 650 ml. bottle. The pour is a dark brown with a slight haze and decent tan head. There is a fascinating malt character that mingles with the earthy hop feel. The malts are not the sweet kind but they do have some sort of cardboard neutrality to them. That sounds harsh but I can figure out what I am getting, yet they aren’t bad. Medium body. More hop bitterness in the flavor but still tends to be malt forward.

Taster at Bert’s. Red amber pour with a off white head. Not much for aroma, malt mostly, bit of hop resin. Taste was much better. Light on the palette, caramel malt, pine, slight citrus. Easy drinking.

22oz bottle dated 8/4/13. Pours a dark amber with an off white head and decent lacing. Malty aroma. Taste of caramel with the hops coming through on the back end. Interesting combination of flavors reminding me more of a brown ale than an IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle, dated bottled on 8/4/13. Nice and fresh. Pours an attractive mahogany color with is to the clear side when held to the light. A gentle pour netted a one finger beige head that receded to a healthy amount of lace. Rich caramel malt nose, backed with a good amount of pine resin. Smells like you’re in for a treat. The malt base really dominates the flavor, but the hops are strong enough to prevent it from being to sweet. A nice balance. Full bodied and easy to drink. Loved it.
