4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear deep dark amber with a thin rocky beige head. Rich and intense aroma of boozy caramel, grapefruit zest, and sticky pine resin. Flavor was nice and full with some sticky caramel and sticky pine resin mixing with a wet hop sorta tone, along with grapefruity bittersweetness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep mahogany/red pour with tan head. Aroma is citrus hops, sweet toasted malt, and a bit of dark fruit/cherry. Flavor is a moderate citrus hop bitterness, toasted malt/ malt syrup, and light fruit notes. Mild alcohol. Nice, somewhat syrupy mouthfeel. Lightly bitter finish. Maybe just a tad too sweet, but barely worth mentioning.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bomber pours a clear amber to ruby red with a tan head of foam and leaving behind spotty lacing. The aroma offers up wonderful hoppy earthy dankness with bits of pine and citrus in the background. Yes! The taste is firmly hoppy with thick wedges of dank hops and grapefruit to tangelo citrus hop goodness. It unloads robust levels of bitter hoppiness with just snippets of flavor hops and faint malt sweetness creating additional depth and interest. The beer is only dark in color as I get no crystal malts or roasted malt flavors. Solid brew. If this was less expensive I’d get lots more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer has a strong caramel aroma. It is a beautiful amber color with brown undertones. It has a very malty taste at first and finishes somewhat bitter. A good sipping beer overall.
