3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very pretty ruby red, clear, good head. Medium caramel malt aroma hits you first, sweet toffee like aromas, there’s a citrus hop background, but not too overpowering or up front. Sweetness is kept in check, well-balanced with the bitterness which is smooth. A very enjoyable double-ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber. Bitter amber ale, west-coasty. Clear beer, no lacing, goes down to a collar. Hop aroma is a good basic hoppy aroma, something stanky in there, though. Taste is mostly fresh, hoppy, with not much complexity; good, nonetheless. Pretty good, I’d like to try it on tap.

Had on draft at the brewery. This is caramel malts, fruity hop character with some slight floral notes, slight alcohol fruitiness as well as some heat. I am impressed.
