The investigation was shut down because this strong ale killed the suspect. Still, at 9.7% it’s surprisingly smooth. Aesthetically this is a beautiful beer with a deep amber tint and a head that never ends. Taste ? If you like bitter and balanced, then this beer is home. I don’t tend to drink such hopped beers, but this one is quite nice with hits of floral, citrus, and spice all at once. I can handle one. If I drink another, I’ll be convicted.

Solid, bitter floral hops, balanced by smooth caramel. Other flavors of pine, citrus peel and sweet lemons. The hop bitterness really balances this beer out well. Crisp, and the alcohol is present but smooth.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Amber hue with creamy white head that remains fluffy. Aroma is huge caramel, orange, melon, sugar, tangerine, honey, pine, ripe sweet limes. Mouthfeel is fantastic with a medium body and great carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness throughout with a nice bitter following and a nicely blended ethanol finish. Overall this is a wonderfully fantastic I2PA.

A light copper color with a white foamy head. Brewers says that its a especially bitter, but I found that it has a slight bitter taste from the hops. Overall this is a nice American ale.

Aroma is somewhat soapy but picks up grapefruit and caramel nuances. Malt and smooth with lots of sweet caramel, brown sugar and toffee above subtle citrus zest, grapefruit and spicy hops that are impressively layered. Finish lingers and extends impressively, with a touch of heat left uncovered.

Bottle from....somewhere? Nice copper bronze color with a big foamy head. Nice mellow caramel and sweeter hop aroma. Great flavor that almost borders on an American barley wine. Very pleasant.

Excellent American Strong Ale! Sweet, rich, full aroma with hop and malt. Flavor is full and smooth. A bit of zest on the tongue. Sweet, malty, rich hops with floral and brown sugar-esque notes. Complex and wonderful.
