1.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bot. Pours a thicker looking menacing darker amber color. Mild sweet perfume aroma. First taste is bitter alky thang. Next taste is rough personality. Difficult fer sher. Strongish punch in the face. Volatile. Not too enjoyable IMHO. I guess it does what its s’posed to, make you dizzy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bethesda Food and Beverage. Nice dark orange body with medium head. Nose is hoppy, with some spices and barley in there. Very inviting. Taste is just great, with lots of floral notes, malts, barley, caramel and big alcy taste. Very strong kick to it. Really liked this. Nice creamy texture too.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap, on release day so you know its fresh and highlighting the hops. Pours clear orange, small beige head, dissipates leaving decent lacing. Aroma is surprisingly light, hints of pine, perfume, floral notes, hints of cardboard, honestly. Flavor is light plus sweet, fully bitter, floral, perfume and pine. Medium body. Odd and not really appealing. Whats the draw here? At least the ABV is well hidden.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler from Trenton Road Takeout in Fairless Hills, PA. Dark Amber color topped by a small firm beige head. Notes of burnt sugar and plums in nose. Flavor is more of the same with a nice warming alcohol burn. Soft palate has a touch of dried apricot and then lot’s of bitter hops. This is a sipping beer, make no mistake, but it easy to drink and therefor very deceptive. The name is well chosen. Finish is dry and bitter. Sticky mouthfeel from the resiny hops.

Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a orange with an amber hue and a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of raisins and some light sweet fruit with a bit of sweet grains and caramel backing. Flavor has caramel and grains with a bit of raisins and a touch of bitterness through the finish.
