3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear amber with a thin cap of off white head. Some lacing present. Aroma is slightly bitter with some citrus and resinous hops. A ton of caramel, malt, bread and orange. Mouth is very hoppy. A lot of citrus and resin again, with a strong caramel presence. A slight malt backbone evens this beer out.

Bottle. Nose full of pine and citrus. Some malt honey notes. Clear. Amber color. Minimal head. Taste is a touch sweet with kits of hop flavor and some alcohol in the finish. Pretty good but could be more bitter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Ale Asylum, Madison, WI.
Hazy brown colour with a small off-white head.
Dark hops, fruit, resin and sweet maltiness in the aroma.
Bitter flavour. Dark fruits, resin, sweet malt and grain in the flavour. Tasty. Intoxicating.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The head is light & contrasts the dark amber colored body. Aroma is slightly nutty which is unexpected. There is a light bitterness at the front but strengthens & lingers in the after taste. One of Ale Asylum’s better beers & we always make sure to pick some up while it is in season.

Pours with almost no head. Very very dark orange color. Nice hoppy taste. Kind of hits your palatehard though. Slighly pricy.
