3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. #847. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Murky golden brown colour with a huge foamy off-white head.
Yeast, fruity and piney hops, mild bitterness and dill pickles in the aroma.
The flavour is a bit... off? Yeast, dark bitterness and mushy hoppiness.
Not exactly very enjoyable. Strange. I was looking forward to pop this one open...

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a clear orange/gold color with an off-white head. The aroma was very hoppy with some sweet malty notes. The taste was of piney hops and malts. It had a medium body. The finish was hoppy with a lingering citrus aftertaste. One of my favorites.

Nice citrus aroma up front. Then a good citrus and slightly piney taste. A good and not overwhelming after taste.

Its a good one, smicoe and amarillo dominate the smell while it is a herbal yet citrusy flavor with a decent malt backing.

Draft. Earthy and floral hops with a good dose of caramel malt backbone. Nothing super special but quite drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. The aroma is strong hops, some floral notes. The taste is super bitter upfront and lasts through the whole drink. Not a huge fan.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber into my new glarus glass. Caramel and pine aroma. Pours murky amber with a lovely fluffy toasted marshmallow head. Good head retention on this beer. Taste is piney and tropical hops, brown sugar, and bready malt. Good bitterness on the front end, just enough sweet malt to keep it from being too hop-forward. Carbonation is soft. Great IPA. More of an English style IPA, the sweetness is almost ESB-like.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brew Pub. Poured a copper color with a small white head. Aromas of big citrus and tropical fruit hops with some bready malts underneath Taste is hop forward with the fruit and citrus but not as much as aromas indicated. Much more balanced in the flavors with the bready malts. Medium body with decent carbonation; creamy mouth feel.
