4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Shazzam! This is great beer! Poured perhaps slightly too cold. Immediate hop aroma upon opening. Poured with a giant, foamy, frothy, thick, light tan head that slowly settles and lots of lace. Color is a clear amber red with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is a very heady balanced, fresh blend of caramel malt and hop that was mostly pine with a little grapefruit. Flavor’s like nose, slightly roasty (which i love), dominated by the hop and just balanced enough by the malt and carbonic tang. Body/carbonation are faultless. Finish is like flavor, long, and just a tad medicinal. Very drinkable.

Bottle from Tops Liquors. Pours a brown with a large active tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma is caramel, malts, floral hops, sugars, spices. Flavor is caramel malt, floral hops, not as sweet as it smells with a nice bitter floral hop finish. Body is thinner than expected and the lack of sweetness shift the focus to the floral hop aromas and it’s quite enjoyable. Good stuff.

Thanks Tim and Rachel! Nutty malt, figs, prunes, brown sugar, and earthy and citrus hops lingering in the back. Kind of a thin body with flavors of sweet toffee and caramel malts with a piney and citrus hop end. Not bad b

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz. bottle from Star Grocery. It pours a very dark ruby red color with a lasting khaki head. The aroma is wonderful with strong fruity, floral piney hops and supporting dense, spicy, lightly caramel sweet malts. Juicy yet relatively dry and complex aroma. The flavor is explosively hoppy with spice, pine, sweet grapefruit and orange backed by mildly sweet cherry and caramel malt. Dry toasty finish. Really good.
