Draft at blue monk, deeper copper pour. Full mouthfeel. Big bitterness, citrusy hops. Balanced but all about the hops. Enough malts to save your palate. Very nice

Draft, 4th Ave Pub, before the Furthur show. Deep reddish brown pour. The nose is booze and spicy rye. Full bodied, heavy on the palate. A lot going on here, it’s very complex. Rye, spice, pine, citrus, oaky, woody, herbal.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rich bronze colour with nice beige head that fades relatively quickly. Aroma is an immediate blast of fresh crisp celery, dank pine, grass, & hints of onion. Flavours follow the nose with some creamy sweet malt mingling around the delicious bitter citrus zest, finishing with lots of white pepper and hints of stale bread. Mouthfeel is not as full as expected. The remarkably distinctive hop profile makes this a very enjoyable brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark red with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is floral with some fruity hops, lightly resiny and generally not overly aromatic, but nice... as it warms it kicks out a little bit more pine aroma.
The Flavor is pretty much like a double IPA, blindfolded I would be able to tell that this was a dark red beer. The bitterness level is moderate to high, but not unpleasant in any way, the hops are piney with a touch of citrus rind and some nice grapefruit. This isn’t overly boozy or sweet at all. Fairly low on malt character but what’s there is dry and almost dusty. Fishes nicely dry.
