3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap into a sampler glass. Appearance is a hazy amber with a long lasting beige head. Aroma is mostly hops and a little bit of malt. Taste follows suit. Hops aren’t nearly as upfront as would be expected from a DIPA. Overall very good.

Really nice offering here...deep dark copper color, could ahve used a nice glass but the flavor, hop balance, body made up for it. Really fine brew.

Bottle bonus thanks to adrian910ss. Clear orange/brown pour, little carbonation and heavy malt and slightly hoppy aroma. Flavor is some creamy malt, a little citrus and some subdued hops and very mild for being 8% ABV. Not a bad beer, I would like to try this fresh on tap.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is burnt rye malts, with a bitter, flowery hop. The toasted malts dominate.
Appears clear, glassy ruby red orange. Darkly colored. Thick creamy head.
The flavor is sweet and sugary with a bitter malty bite at the end. Nice combination of flavor. Nice little bite at the end.
The palate is thick and milky. Good for style. A nice, bittersweet English style pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft - Low lighting, hard to admire color but it looked copper to deep coper with no carbonation and a short lived head. The nose was made of a sweet sugar, flower petal, pollen type scent. Reminiscent of a women’s perfume. On mouth this is a light medium IPA that provides an upfront taste on the tongue with a touch of bitterness towards the middle and finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle via Todd. Beautiful coppery pour, light tan head. Hugely malty nose, big caramel, light spice (and, as is becoming more common for me, getting some faint notes that remind me of cookie dough). Taste is dark, very dry and bitter, light resin, light floral citrus notes in the back. Really strips everything of the tongue, a super-cleaner that would be good with greasy food. Lightish body, big juicy hop taste. Nice!
