3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear dark amber color, 1/2" foamy beige head cover, broken curtain of lace. Taste is strong sweet caramel malt that is interrupted by full-bodied citrus hops on the swallow, but the malt stays on course, sharing the finish with the hops. The finish also reveals alcohol, and, unexpectedly, mild sweet tea. A big-bodied brew, thoroughly enjoyable. Recommended.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Copper orange pour wht a small ring of white bubbles around the glass. Aroma is sticky malt sweetness and just a touch of bitterness. The body is full and syrupy with a lot of hop bitterness to the finish. Now I notice the alcohol. Potent, but unfortunately not very enjoyable.

Not overly impressed with this beer. Aroma is grain not hop. Taste is more sweet thickness with a slight hop bite that fades into grain. Overall not over whelmed or impressed with this beer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Really boozy. Like almost dominates the aroma here. Some subtle tropical fruit but lots of alcohol. Really kind of overpowers this one for me. Taste is matly and almost syrupy sweet. Not much else going on. I was excited about this one but it was just kind of a boozy mess for me.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy orange amber color with a frothy off white head. Aroma of resin hops and brown sugar and some vanilla. Flavor of citrus hops, sweet malts, slight resin and alcohol. Not sure this one is good enough to justify the 9.2% abv.

Clear amber, full head. Heavy boozy toffee and hops. Pretty well balanced, bit too sweet though.
