Taster at Holiday Ale Festival. A hop bomb amongst all the dark beers of the fest. Surprisingly sweet and not bitter. A nice alternative.

Reddish amber in color, clear with a thin head. Big interesting malty flavor. The hops are strong with a nice sweet finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Breakside, pours a cloudy amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of dry citrus hops and caramel malt – quite a robust aroma that is deep and complex. Flavour brings out similar notes, with dry hops and caramel malts equally potent upfront, transitioning to quite powerful honey notes that linger on and on. Somehow it doesn’t become cloying at any stage, though the honey is dominant at the end. An interesting hybrid of styles with unusual elements. Great stuff.
