Tap at Max’s Baltimore. Dark amber with no head. Looks plain but the nose attracts attention; caramel and spiced hops scent is awesome. Flavour is freaky Belgian. Thin but cool cinamon, caramel and hops with a hint of Belgian flavour. Tastes like candy!!

Great beer! Right on point. I was very impressed and loved it all the way through. The IPA style was really working magic and I was suckered in and now Im a believer in this one. The palate is saturated but in a great way if u are an IPA hoppy lover. Spicy, hoppy, floral, spice and back of sweet candy, just a hint. Delicious, the color was awesome, a little cloudy orange-brown-gold. Smell was great, bread, hop, yum. Overall, would like to have a couple of these, really nice.

(bottle - 12 oz) Amber pour with a thin white head. Nice and yeasty aroma with very tasty smelling citrus hops underneath. Very nice spicy and yeasty flavor at the start that quickly gives way to a very bitter and citrusy hop taste that washes over the palate. Slightly dry and floral at the finish with a mild fruity aftertaste and lingering bitterness. Very tasty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a shade of copper with a relatively small of white head. Smell is citrus like fruits with some spice notes. Taste is interesting, has a bit of complexity and then gets shot down by a booze kick. Almost too much going on for my liking, and then I don’t like how it finishes for an IPA. Still not terrible, however not something I’d likely get again.

Whiskey copper color in the glass. Aroma of some honeydew, bananas, dried cherries and alcohol. Fruity alcohol flavors: dried fruit, some clove and toasty malt trailing notes. Overall, it’s very good. Assertive yet flavorful. Good!
