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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to shaker glass, pours hazy amber/orange. One finger off white head with light lacing and some retention. Aroma of caramel and light pine. Taste is mainly sweet, some earthy hop bitterness but not quite enough to balance. Medium body, lively carbonation, chewy mouth feel. Finishes bittersweet. Tasting notes of caramel, spruce, grass, mango and nuts. Not bad but nothing to write home about.
