3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured clear, medium orange with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up juicy oranges and pine resin over seemingly sweet caramel malts.. a touch heavy-handed, but aiight. The flavor found syrupy sweet caramel and bready notes at the core with pine and citrus bitterness plus peppery alcohol around.. finished sharp with a dry bite right at the end. Medium-plus bodied with a slightly bigger feel than it should’ve had.. overall a good beer with some rough edges.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours up at AZ Strong Ale Fest 2014 with a crystal clear copper body that has thick pervasive golden hues and supports a nice looking light tan head. The aroma offers sweet dark fruity esters as well as malt sweetened citrus to slightly mango fruitiness. The taste begins with cherry to blueberry to brown sugar covered raisin like fruity esters that seem pretty far out of place. Behind the esters I get malt sweetened mango and clementine like hop flavor notes and really no hop bitterness at all. Overall this is just too sweet and estery with no bitterness at all.
