3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ the Common Table for the brewery launch party.
Cloudy orangish amber brew with a decent white head. Nose of dank and pine hops, caramel malt, and rye. Very little bitterness at all, extremely balanced. Lots of hop bite but a nice malt backbone keeping it all in check. Caramel, citrus, and pine. I really hope they make this a year round offering as it was excellent.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the DEBC release party at Common Table. Pours a very cloudy maroon with orange colorings. Foamy white head that fades to a ring quickly. Aroma is pretty hoppy, rye notes, and wood shavings. Flavor is very tasty, hoppy and rye notes towards the middle. Sweet flavors abound in this. Not very bitter at all. Sweet finish. This is very tasty!
