Bottle from mixmasterob - thanks a bunch guy. Pours hazy copper with a slight yellowish beige head. Aroma is fruity brown sugar. Med body. Flavor is fruity (light pitted) with brown sugar. There’s enough hop to play off the malt. Finishes balanced. Not dry, but definitely bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a clear copper color with large frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate heavy complex hop aroma with a citra tone. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer and very good double IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear burnt-orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. I drank this one right after a bottle of Surly Syx. Ironically, it smells, tastes and feels a lot like Syx with less alcohol burn. It’s like Syx’s little brother. Syx’s 260 lbs little brother. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Red pour, off white head. Aroma? All resinous christmas trees and some sweet sticky caramel malts. Big bold and overpowering resin with some malts that get lost in the liquid pine trees.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Did not realize this bottle was at 11%. A presentable strong ale, with a good hop and toast aroma inviting me in. This reddish tinged and very heady and lacey offering had a sooth creamy mouthfeel. The hops are there in abundance, but not overally assertive. They linger on the palate. Sizable malt bill backing a big IBU. Good drinkability, the colder weather was appropriate to savor this one.Flanders Red

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home via trade with DrSilverworm. Thanks! Pours a bit hazy, dark red orange appearance with a cream colored head. Rich toasty caramel malty, a bit herbal/woody, mild citrus fruity, a bit boozy, dull herbal hoppy aroma. Somewhat spicy, herbal/green hoppy, a bit chewy, slight ethanol, toasty caramel malty, chewy yeasty flavor with a bit more booze on the finish. I imagine this would have been a little better fresh since the hops have faded here and while this is a bit too strong and boozy for my taste, it’s not bad.
