Hazy dark amber, with beige froth. Strong hop and caramel aroma. Flavour has solid bitterness along with floral hops and caramel, even hints of licorice. Long and very bitter finish. Dry and medium bodied. Good one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Green hops, floral with pine and cookie dough sweet malt. Hazy caramel colored with tan head. Sweeter malt up front with toffee flavors quickly give way to bitter hops that seem to get even more bitter the longer it stays in your mouth. An Amber Ale that has OD’ed on IBUs! Has a minerally aftertaste, almost like putting a penny in your mouth.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smell of hops, mango, grass. Deep bronze colour, high beige head. Aroma of hops, spruce. Very bitter. Dry palate, flat carbon. Doesn’t taste like an amber ale, doesn’t look like an amber ale. But good nonetheless.

Bottle from The Beerhive. Ruby body with a thin off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma of candy, pine, burnt sugar and stewed tea. Flavour is both rich and bitter - notes of wood, candy, caramel and juicy hops. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A really good beer, delicious flavour. Would love to try on cask.

Bottle lurking in the back of the fridge. Copper color with decent head but lots of floaters. Smells of caramel and indistinct bitterness. Initial flavor is kind of off sweet, which is not so good. The underlying bitterness is nice.
