4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is hoppy, sweet fruits, grass, malty. Appearance is amber orange, light orange head. Taste is complex, initially a sweet toffee, malt, and finishing hoppy. Mouthfeel is perfect, soft carbonation for a hoppy beer, not too astringent. Overall, this reminds me of a mix between a doppelbock and IPA. Different, in a good way.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber with a medium beige head with light lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, yeast and fruity notes. Taste is a strong caramel malt and toffee flavor, yeast with a good dose of earthy hops for balance on the end. A medium body, smooth mouth feel with good carbonation. The finish is sweet caramel malt, yeast and fruity, some toffee notes and earthy hops bitterness. This brew goes down smooth considering the bitterness and alcohol. Overall a very good tasty brew.
