3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Craft and Capone’s. Poured hazy medium copper with off-white head. Nose was resiny piney hops, tropical fruit, caramel malt. Tasted rich, complex and hefty on the palate, with well hidden alcohol, and a front palate resiny hop flavor, plus tangerine, pineapple, black pepper, and a substantial caramel malt bill at mid-palate to balance things out nicely.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Churchkey. Pours a clear amber color with a medium plus sized white head. The aroma has earthy, resiny and mild citrus hops with some caramel and mild fruit notes. The flavor is similar; resin and dank hops, mild citrus, toasted malts with a splash of caramel and a touch of fruit. Decent, but something kept it from being a standout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Frisco Grille, Columbia: Pours a transparent deep golden bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh abundant resiny grapefruity hops with some pale malty sweetness underneath. Starts with good fullness and a nice light caramely sweetness with lots of assertive citrusy bittering and flavor hops before a drier, crisp bittersweet finish. Very flavorful, yet well balanced and quite hoppy hiding its alcohol well.
