2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Apocalypse Brew Works. Muddy chestnut color with some off-white foam. Seems to have a decent enough citrus aroma to it with some grapefruit and lemon. But it’s kind of grassy and peppery, which doesn’t seem to work. Lots of cocoa, toasted grains, and some nuts. Light sweetness of caramel malt, too. Sort of a mix of hop and grain derived bitterness, and a mild papery astringency. Clever name, but not a huge fan of the beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint draft at The Crescent Hill Craft House in Louisville, Kentucky. The pour is a hazy brown copper with nice lighter tan head. The aroma is toasted nutty malt, a nice citrus floral hop character and a faint soapiness. The taste is the component parts of the nose, in nice balance. The nutty toast malt integrates well with the floral hop character. The soap is not present in the taste. The palate is medium bodied, soft, almost creamy carbonation and a clean nutty finish. Tasty beer.

Brown pour with a white head. Aromas of biscuit and nutty malts with just a touch of hops. Flavor is lots of caramel malts with nut and biscuit undertones. Very drinkable. Respectable brew.

Sampled at the brewery. Pours brown with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, caramel and nutty and lightly toasty malts, and hints of dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft taster at the brewery. Pours a brown-amber color with a small beige head. Notes of earthy, grassy hops, tobacco, chocolate, and tea. Simple, but so nice and balanced. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and an earthy mouthfeel. My favorite offering from my first visit here.

If I closed my eyes I would belive this is a straight IPA. Hoppy and brown, named correctly.
