3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle. Dark red color. Solid, balanced hoppiness, not too hot. Not really my style, but solid.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Dark Horse Tavern for Oct. pours dark red. Almost no head ( maybe because it's almost too cold!) immediate citrus pine hoppy taste that also has a caramel hint. And a slight sweetness that fades to that familiar bitter IPA taste. ( dark would only pour a 12 oz (short) and not a tall presumably due to the alcohol content)

Wanted this one for a while probably mostly because of my liking with the film. But a nice beer overall. Would try again.

Bottle pour. Interesting clear orange/brown color with a head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma has strong caramel and biscuit notes with citrus hop as well. Sweet nutty flavors up front with earthy, resinous, and caramel elements. Palate includes creamy textures, with a little fizz and a medium body.

Pours reddish brown and tan head with nice lacing. Aroma of citrus and pine hops with sweet bread. Taste is well balanced with caramel malts and a slightly bitter aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh).
Definitely a red - pours red with a bit of head that disappeared quickly. Very fresh aroma - citrusy... Pleasant taste - somewhat piney and fruity. A touch of bitterness on the aftertaste.
Tldr - not too shabby...

Bottle shared by Jeff. Thanks man.
The beer is copper hued with an off-white head. Ample lacing coats the walls of the glass. The aroma offers a sufficient malt bill, pine, hops. A healthy bitterness exists throughout with a mild, bready sweetness. A tasty beer and solid example of the style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Feels hoppier than it is, and the mouth feel is a little light. There’s a nice nutty flavor underpinning the bitterness. Doesn’t compare to the Lake Erie Monster, and doesn’t really offer anything radically different to justify it either. It’s pretty good for what it is.
