3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at GABF 2012. Of the two LA area pro-am beers this falls behind Eagle Rock’s Eradicator Jr. A bit of a muddle with now primary flavor focus. Some stone fruit tastes to me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden amber color with a soapy white head. A fairly bread forward nose with strong fruit aromas. Lots of banana, pear, and tropical fruits. A fairly strong spice note and some mild yeast. There’s a hint of tartness on the palate, some strong biscuit notes, pear, and lots of banana. Some notes of candi sugar and a touch of yeast. The spices are not quite as pronounced as they are on the nose, but some notes of coriander and nutmeg. Kind of thinned bodied with somewhat light carbonation.
