4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I know there's only 8 reviews before me, but I'm amazed this is so low. Subtle sweetness from the malts (though I'm not necessarily getting chocolate). Great hops and crazy smooth for over 100 IBU's. Plus the awesome owner gave me a free 4 pack at their tasting room. Great beer overall.

Picked up a can of this. Hazy ruby color with a off white head. Oxidation and diacetyl. Hops are dead. Alcohol isn’t apparent, but so what? A mess.

Can. Pours brown with lots of red hues and off-white head. Smells very piney. Has a bitter backbone, lots of earthiness, bitter finish, cereal...a bit thin for the style. Okay.

Tasty brew from a place that is a 10 minute walk from my house. Plenty of hops and gets bonus for location.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Avery Strong Ale Fest. clear dark copper with a thin foamy white head. Aroma is primarily hoppy with notes of sweet tangerine and caramel with strong resinous leafy hops with pine and sharp acidic hop oils, but its all backed up by a candy caramel sweetness with a touch of fruitiness. The flavor is a little blander than the nose, with notes of bitter leafy hops, earthy caramel, and moderately strong pine bitterness.
