4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
straight bangin’. There honestly should be a distinction drawn for this style. Noble alpha red and this are really on another level for me. Aroma is pine, grapefruits, mango, pineapple, spruce, grass and light cat piss followed by a slight hint of caramel and chocolate. remarkably complex for an aroma profile. Pours a blood red with a tan thick head that laces like crazy. taste is hops bitter IPA but then surprise bonus!!! caramel and chocolates on the back of the tongue. Palate is perfectly refreshing not to thick and not saison dry. overall a really really nice offering with some style to boot.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Kihoskh.
Clear dark brown with a red hue and a 2 finger nicotine yellowed spongy head. I like the bottle artwork as well. :-)
Sweet malty caramel aroma with some chocolate and red berries, citrus, bread and a touch of leather.
Taste is sweet malty with lots of caramel that gets an extra boost of fatty chocolate. Grapefruit and red berries, herbs and nuts.
Medium to bigger body, soft carbonation, oily rich texture.
Pretty good, but it feels a bit worn out by age.
