2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at the brewery. This is a ruddy-looking beer and starts like many D/IIPAs; overall it’s drinkable, but side by side with their flagship pale ale, I prefer the pale ... this has a nutty aspect that takes over that didn’t tickle my palate in the right way. (#5676, 8/29/2014)

Dark amber / copper pour from a growler obtained last weekend. Nice white head and lots of white lacing. Big lovely hoppy nose with a hint of citrus and malt. Big earthy and spicy hops in the taste with a strong bitter finish. Full mouthfeel. Nice.

Great beer which is worth having more than once. It is great especially nice and fresh at the brewery. It is well worth picking up a growler to enjoy.
