3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear reddish amber with a nice creamy head, good retention and lace. Bread dough, toast and caramel aromas lead the malt-rich aroma profile, accompanied by a leafy, grassy hops presence. Taste starts out with sweet caramel that fades quickly and is overtaken by the dough and toast. Hops are more grapefruit and pine than leaves and grass. Medium to full body, nice carbonation, warming but not overpowering alcohol, and a thick creamy mouthfeel. Very pleasant.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear light red pour with a sticky, off-white head. Lacking aroma to have the words "triple-hopped" on the bottle. Pine hops and bready malt - flavor is fruity with a slight bitterness and extremely dry.

quite an alarming smell- like cold brandy .. great foam, pretty damn good lacing also .. . dark murky tan .. . nicely balanced, a bit from both sides .. . pretty good actually, a touch boozy but pretty drinkable .. .
I caught my wife in bed with my best friend.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours amber. Not a whole lot of aroma. Some bitter hops come through. Taste is hoppy and dry. The dryness reminds me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale which I would rather be drinking. The dryness definitely comes through towards the end. So-so beer.

Sampled on 4/8/2011. This American Strong Ale pours a medium red color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is bready and malty with some piney and floral hops.

Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Pours deep red with odd white head. Malty aroma little hops. Very biscuity flavor slight malt sweetness and a dank hop finish. Not clean at all. Not bad but just not what I am looking for. Lingering dankness and nothing else.
