Keg at the Hanging Bat.
Surprised at how old school this seemed to be. Light clear sparkling russet brown with a good hop nose and supple mealiness of the body.Smooth yet stealthily big and round

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow, didn’t expect this to be so damn good for some reason. Poured into a goblet. Beautiful, amber/orange color with a decent amount of carbonation. Smell right out of the bottle was very...fruity? Literally had no idea what to expect out of this beer, and what a pleasant surprise it was. Head is super thin, pale color, dissipated almost completely within minutes. Taste is just plain awesome, fruity, clean, no hint of the high ABV to me, and .. spicy and bready at the end. Niiiice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I didn’t catch the ABV, a bit surprising. It had a fair sweetness, though the pale malts tended toward a nice breadiness, some caramel components, fairly strongly hopped but had enough malt backbone to make a nicely balanced beer. Very drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an amber gold with a nice head of tightly packed white bubbles. It’s a beauty. Wonderful fresh aroma although, malt dominates. Very balanced flavor with malty sweetness giving way to sour, bitter, and then umami. Palate is nice with a lingering bitter and some stickiness. It’s a great brew.

Bottle. Lightly cloudy golden amber pour with a pillowy white head. I had no idea what to expect here, but it smells like a delicious IPA - lots of bright citrus with some sweet fruit notes underneath. Flavour is fairly sweet, bright citrus and pine, resin notes and tropical fruit. Pretty nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear orangish gold with a small white head. Aroma of cat piss(assuming the delicious Simcoe hops), citrus, pine, grapefruit and sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit, citrus fruits, light pine and some sweet pale malts. Malty sweetness is balanced perfectly with the bitterness from the hops that ends in the finish and finishes semi dry. Cray to think an 8 percent beer can be this smooth.
