2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a cardamom bomb. From nose to most of the taste. The end has a welcome touch of bitterness. Even with low ABV, this is much better suited as a sipper due to the extreme amount of spice.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Pours with a hazed golden hued body with a small tan head. Aromas are hoppy, juniper, pine, grassy and a bit exotic smelling. Some cinnamon, cardamom, brown sugar and weed. Flavors are tannic, spice, intense spiced bitterness (astringent) and quite dry. Brown sugar and cinnamon sugar. Super intense. I like the combo a little bit, but the intensity of spices is WAAAY overkill! Hard/nearly impossible to drink a 3oz taster. Light bubbles, very spicy and astringent. Love the combination, but damn there is too much spice!
