3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Craft Brew & Co. Dark dark clear amber pour. Aroma is lots of malts with some citrusy hops. Taste is prickly with citrus peel bitterness, very rich deep maltiness too to balance. Big big flavor - very bitter, very malty in a red ale way, juicy too. Quite sweet, and with lots of booziness. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dirty dark amber with a sticky khaki head. Massive aroma of toffee, pine needles, candied citrus, mandarin, sticky caramel. Palate mellows out heaps, lots of sticky caramel, toasty malts and some pine and orange peel hop character. Body is very thin considering the aroma and booze, wanted it to be a bit chewier. Lingering sweet bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours clear amber with little head. Nose smells like a big beer. Loads of raisin sweetness, lychee, booze, resin and mild tropical fruits. The taste is driven by tropical fruit sweetness and sticky resin before it mellows off with milk chocolate and sultanas. Almost a little cookie dough-like. The booze is present and the mouth feel is a touch thin. Solid but not hitting anything out of the park

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I really liked this one.... Brown-reddish color. Tan medium head. Citrus aroma, grapefruit. Taste is hoppy, citrus, and not too much alcohol. You cannot tell its 9%. A bit sweet. Nice after taste of bitter and grapefruit... Even though this is not IPA there is a bit of the IPA-citrus-hoppy taste I love.. This is one I would buy again.
