4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 Tap - Golden Bear Brewpub, Berkeley, CA, USA. Had to try this after the Jupite IPA tapped out. Thin head. Sweet aroma. Dark red/brown color. Nose is hoppy, with a significat portion of yeast and malt. Taste is *almost* that of there IPA, but with a significantly detectable amount of yeast and malt in the aftertaste. I used to drink the IPA, but this is now my standby when that taps out.

Pours a fairly dark red with some foam. Not bad flavor but a bit overly malty for my tastes. A lot of friends enjoy this brew but not really my taste

On tap @ Drake’s. This was a truly unique ale. The nose was sweet and fruity, as was the flavor. The flavor that stood out the most escaped me at first, but then I realized what it was; Red Delicious aplle skins. Once identified it, it was quite enjoyable. Very drinkable and smooth.

Draft. Somewhat murky bronze beer with a cream colored head. Toasty malt aroma. Chocolate and cocoa malt flavor with light caramel and very light jops. Medium bodied. Chocolate and cocoa lingers with light hops. Didn’t expect the chocolate/cocoa to be so strong a flavor.
