3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium sized tan head with goo dretention and a solid, coating lace. Dark, amber hued brew. Malty nose with a piney hop backing.Body is med/full, chewy and audacious. Kinda juicy and confrontational, pushy, overbearing, maybe a touch too much?? Lotsa hearty malts, caramelly with some fruity hoppy goodness. Caramel malts roll on with piney overtones that work, sorta. A chwy, grabbing brew. Bomber from stateline liquors.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at James’ place for a tasting. Pours a rather clear amber with a small white head. Big spicy hops on the nose. Medium bodied, spicy hops, a good amount of malt, a touch of warming alcohol. Finishes up with some lingering pithy grapefruit bitterness and a touch of cattiness. Decent enough, warm and toasty.
