3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Brewdog Shoreditch. A clear ruby brown colour with a fizzy beige head. Aroma of caramel, some toffee, pine, red grape, spruce and subtle peach, maybe grapefruit too. Taste of caramel, toffee, strawberry and a big hoppy flavour of grapefruit, peach, red grape and resin. Medium bodied and a slightly oily texture. A bittersweet, caramel finish with some resinous hop bitterness. Such a well balanced beer. Sweet caramel, toffee malts and citrusy grapefruit, resin bitterness. Good beer from this brewery.

Keg at PSBH, Manchester. Very nice dark red shade. Short head. Rings of lacing. Piney, caramelly and toasty. Fruity in a red grape and red apple sort of way. Very bitter and without much sweetness to balance that out. I like it but would appreciate a little more sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottling date of 05.18.15.
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a nice looking dark hazy red almost brown color with a nice transparency about it. A one and a half finger-ed white to off white foamy head dissipated within less than two minutes. Yeah, that head really stuck around longer than a lot of other beers I’ve had. Nice! Lacing was somewhat thick and foamy.
The smell started off with bitter citrus over bitter pine. Its sharp and strong and allows a nice little bit of caramel underneath to balance.
The taste was mostly bitter with a nice underscore of sweet between the caramel and the hops. A light caramel to bitter citrus rind scores in the aftertaste and leads to a semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly nice sessionability about it. Carbonation hits nicely as an American Strong ale - decent bitter harshness but still balanced by caramel sweetness to not be overly done.
Overall, I say this was a nice beer, I’d have again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a big old muddy pile of foam and ruby red gunk. This has an aggressively malty, caramel character, full of stickiness and heaviness. Chewy, chewy, chewy. (#6016, 8/4/2015)

Bomber from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy ruby with a finger of khaki head. Nose is caramel malt, resiny hops, fruit. Tastes caramel malty, vinous fruity, sprucey, hoppy, with a bold and complex finish. Outstanding.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Even toned dark amber with a dense, off white head. Aron is standard RIPA, but with a nutty chocolate note. Taste is the same, with a fresh hop character, and a prickliness on the palate. My first Jamil beer ever. $6/22oz

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark mahogany, ruby red hue.
Big grapefruit nose, hint of special roast, lower lovibond caramel with low levels of burnt ness, candy flavor strawberry fruit roll-up. Lighter body for all that's going on. Very well balanced, clean, high drink ability. Very impressed, first Heretic.
