Tap @ Parkway & bomber. Clear amber pour, short white head moderate lace. Pine resin nose, medium-heavy body evenly balanced between bitter, sweet and umami, with a hint of tartness entering in the middle and lasting through the finish. Spicy juniper, some floral hops, meaty, very interesting. All the flavor of an DB but without the lacerations ;-)

16 oz can- Pours slightly cloudy dark orange with a decent light tan head that slowly reduces. Aroma is hops, which is unexpected and welcomed, spicy rye bread, some caramel malts. The taste is similar to a red IPA, in fact it very much reminds me of Sierra Nevada Flipside Red, which is a good thing when your beer is compared to the masters at Sierra Nevada. Nice caramel malts blend wonderfully with the hops, good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This 7.3% American Strong Ale poured out a vibrant reddish gold with a thin light beige head in my snifter. A powerful hop aroma of piney citrus with a touch of dank rises from the glass to entice the drinker. The zesty carbonation on a soft body is quite satisfying. The taste is sweet malts, fruity hops with just a bit of pine. A very satisfying ale, beyond the beautiful can this is a great beer to check out this winter.
