3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at source. VERY subdued aroma, perhaps a bit sweet. Dark and rather stoutish color. Leaves sudsy lacing to prove it’s been there. Roasty and somewhat sweet at start, with the rated 100 ibu taking a good while to develop between sips. Relatively high alcohol content makes itself known later. Decent enough brew, but I prefer Crow’s IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I received a free growler fill for my birthday from Crow Peak, and I chose this ale. It has a 100IBU rating but the hop taste is much milder then that. This ale has a sweet hoppy bite followed by a nice roasted dark malts. Pretty tasty!
