4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated on 7-04-2012 (Bottle-Siciliano’s Market-Grand Rapids, MI) The appearance is a medium sized semi-fizzy beige head with a long retention, amber transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, pine hops, and spice. The flavor is sweet, spice, caramel malt, pine and some citrus hops. The mouthfeel is mild carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a lingering hoppy aftertaste, worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle in a hotel room in Las Vegas. Hazy brown to amber pour, creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, licorice, citrus, floral hops, resin and some biscuits. Flavor is very nicely balanced, bitter floral hops, sweet caramel malts and smooth with a huge body and lively carbonation. Great brew.

A decent enough red/amber ale, but like most of their stuff it was top hoppy for my tastes.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber! Pours a beautiful translucent dark copper color, a little hazy, with good lacing. Aroma is sweetbreads, lots of rich malts. Taste is bitter on the nose, then sweet, then bitter again. It’s definitely "bastardized" - I don’t think the scots would know what to do with this much hops! Definitely "fresh" tasting, I can see why so many people like it!

Draft. Ok nose. Just kind of bland toffee and sugar. Not much hop. Really just not that memorable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Healthy brown pour with strong red hue and half inch of light brown head. Sweet scent, powdery carmel, spruce and butter. Soft carbonation, frothy mouthfeel, crisp finish that leaves the teeth dry. Flavor of pine and spruce hops, very nutty malt, Carmel too, some rye. Nice scotch ale, not too sweet and fairly complex with nice hop profile.
