Delicious aroma of a candy store with a cotton candy queen at the register! Malty, hoppy aroma with an attack of caramel notes!!! The increased alcohol content was well hidden, Overall flavor was lacking of overpowering flavor, but that is this only drawback of this. Quite good!

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2014
16 oz. can brought down by friends from Chicago - thanks, Mike and Rachel! Pours a clear copper orange with a beige head. The hops are more aggressive in this than I anticipated; florals, citrus rind, and grass, to go with caramel, resin, brown sugar, and some rye. Light-medium bodied, with a bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Drinks like a hoppy imperial amber.

Nice brew, my first from this brewery. Pours a reddish amber with a thin head. Caramel and sweet malt in the aroma. The flavor has quite a bit of sweet malt up front but is balanced with a nice hop bitterness. The finish is dry with no alcohol to be found. A deceptive beer, beware the 8% ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
