4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Appealing, above average carbonation and hoppy aroma. Interesting reddish color. Very tasty hoppy ale, well balanced and not too strong or astringent hop flavor, like some microbrew IPA’s. Slightly bitter finish. A very pleasant surprise!

A decent ale overall. Good malt/hops balance and very drinkable. That said, I wouldn’t buy it (this one is free) unless it was the only decent beer they had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really solid red ale. Plenty of hops but with a thick malty backbone. It also seems a bit stronger than the 7%... it’s really drinkable...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Received in a cool trade with dberger624.. Thanks Dan!! Pours deep amber with a long lasting off white head.. Punchy pine hoppiness on the nose is backed up by a decent amount of toastiness.. Flavor mirrors the aroma.. Maltiness is dry but still little toasty... interesting, very drinkable.

A caramel malt flavor dominates at first, with piney hops at the end. Not great, but drinkable.

Good beer. Pours a reddish amber. Looks great in a pint glass. Thin head that doesnt last long. Defintely a bold beer. Strong bitter taste right off the bat with a nice bitter finish. Like i said. This is a good beer. Not great but good. Couldnt see myself drink more than one or two of these in a sitting.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy amber with thin white head that fizzles out quickly. Faint smell of sweet malt, light hops and bread. Can detect hops on the tongue, though not strong. Some sweet caramel. Light to medium body. Decent brew.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 Oz bottle from AOPD for December 2015 The amber ale poured a cloudy amber color with small head that dissipated to some dried lacing. The aroma was very feint of pine resin. The taste has some subtle bitterness but very mild. The ale had a medium body with soft carbonation, The finish had some toffee with some bitterness in the upper mouth.
