3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a slight beige? head. Sweet roast malt aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is roast caramel (comes across almost like a brown ale) with some arguable hop bitter. Have no idea what these folks think an obscene amount is, but it doesn’t match mine. Pretty dull drink, tho arguably the flavors are not weak.

"Hmmm...another interesting brew from these guys. What at first is pretty boring opens up to some cool layers of citrus hops, and chocolate/biscuity/caramel malts. Not too shabby. Would love to try super fresh."

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Can. Oh man, this is awful. Stale buttered popcorn smell, very abrasive bite that has a little bit of sour overtones - drain pour.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of can is slightly hazy red with slightly off white head, aroma brings notes of caramel, some soapy hops but mainly floral and grass notes, touch of earth and spice notes as well. Taste is a mix of floral and grass hops, hints of caramel and earth finish fairly dry, slightly bitter. Fairly nice, though its more of a hopped red than an amber style.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sour. Red apple skins, peach yogurt, red hot cinnamon candies, alcohol and hairspray in the nose. Burnt sugar. Medium body, sweet, phenolic and acidic enough to ruin the experience. Yeasty yogurt and cosmetic off-notes.
