2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap, pours a lightly hazed golden colot, medium white head, good lace. Aromas of light bread, faint hops, overall a very weak aroma. Taste is ultra bitter, caramel sweetness dominates. Way too sugary and malty. Big miss considering this was apparently rare and only at 5 bars in the county.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
On tap at Monk's with Vinny. Well, let's just say I expected much more. By that I mean, I expected it to be drinkable. This beer pours nice and clear golden with a fuzzy white head. Nice lacing as well. It takes a fucking nose dive from there; the nose is dismal, the taste is is absolute malty hell, and I could not take more than two sips. So malty, stale and bland. Bitterly disappointed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Monk’s Cafe. Pour was amber colored, slight faint haze, nice self-sustaining head. Aroma of strong pine, some citrus. Flavor followed over top of a mild biscuit malt. Hops not as strong as the description promised, but a darned nice brew. I think I’m cool with the Double Jack as it is over this. Mouthfeel full, slight stickiness.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap @ Bottleworks. Pours dark orange with thin head. Aroma is citrus and grapefruit hops. Taste is thick caramel malt, sticky boozy sweetness, with piney hops that linger through the finish to leave a sweet bitter aftertaste. A big beer, no doubt. Though it’s been a whole, this is similar to Racer X. Only shortcoming I could identify is maybe a little more hops up front? The malt profile on this is spot on.
