3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Deep amber, burnt reddish hues, moderate sandy colored head, spotty lacing.   Citrus
nose, slightly zesty, some caramel.   A little candied citrus peel as well.   Somewhat of a zesty/citrusy
start.   Not too bright, a little dull, moderate to full malt base.   Decent amount sweetness.
Bitterness is there, but not too strong.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, yet smooth.   Pretty tasty
overall, could use a bit more body tho.   I would reach for another.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet sugary malts and a touch of hops from the neck. Pours clear red with a thin but sturdy off-white head. Lots of bubbles clinging to the glass. Aroma of pine, candi sugar, and malt. Lots of hops in the flavor though. Sweet, medium bittered ale, with a little salt and hops. Seems very slightly acetic. Viscous, medium bodied, with a mild finish. The finish does linger on the palate though. Imperial Red? This really leans towards old ale or barleywine style ale IMO, and that’s why I like it. Tasted from the bottle @ 52F.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose is sweet with dark fruit, roasted and toasted malts, caramel, slick sweetness, and some spicy and lightly fruity hops. Pours dark red with little to no head. The flavor is sweet and slick with lots of caramel, dark fruits, roasted malt notes, light spicy bitterness. All in all too slick and sweet for my liking.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear, deep reddish brown with a persistent half inch of tan head. Aroma is veiled hops, some cereal malt and a slight sweet note. Fairly non-descript. Taste is more present. Woody with a real roasty malt note underpinned by some west coast hops. Chewy and fuller palette than I expected from a 7.8% beer. Alcohol is well worked and not too hot. Finish is slightly nutty and woody. Good but missing something.

Dark ruby clear color, good steady off-white head. Nose has malts, wood, perhaps hints of caramel (took nose sample, so my nose is a bit ruined) then piney hops. Medium-bodied. Bready, alcohol, some caramel, salt, lingering piney hoppy aftertaste.
