3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark ruby - thick head with decent retention - the citra hops dominate the nose, but the roasted malt surprisingly compliments it quite well - sadly, the same cannot be said of the flavor - the beer is quite dry and roasty and the bright citrus notes of the hops simply do not work with or compliment this character - tangy, dry, citric finish - the body is creamy , the malt base is firm and the beer is well-attenuated, but it just doesn’t come together for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad. A lot of carmel and brown sugar in the nose with strong notes of floral hops. The beer is deep brown with a syrupy tan head. A balance of sweet caramel with bitter floral hops. Chewy with a balanced impression.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to pint glass. Pours a coppery clear body with a thin white head. Aroma is that of nuts. The taste has a bit of toffee and maybe a tough of almond. Not one of my favorite styles but it was a nice suprise.
