Aroma is very light citrus, resin, and caramelly toffee notes. The flavor is citrus up front, then the toffee malt kicks in followed by a slight caramel note. The abv is hidden very well. Be careful with this beer!! It’s very tasty and very potent.

Pours a medium brown, with a beige head. Aroma is malty, caramel, brown sugar, and some grapefruit. Flavor is fruity, malty, and mildly sweet. Finishes a little astringent, and hoppy, but not bad. Overall very smooth and drinkable.

Deep mahogany brown. Nose is hot booze, toffee, and tobacco. Flavor follows, nice round palate, and bitter hop finish. A bit on the sweet side to be a real but still a great affordable brew.

The first few sips were delicious. American barley wine-ish with lots of caramel and hoppy flavours like citrus fruits and pine. Way too sweet aftertaste and the bitterness felt kinda chemical but as the beer got warmer the chemical flavour dissapeared and the sweetness calmed down. At the right temperature it’s almost too easy to drink.

Copper color when poured. Has a malty caramel flavor. Nice hops flavor and isn’t very bitter Goes down smooth for the higher alcohol content.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours deep orange with an ample off-white head. Citrusy floral hop aromas with notes of caramel. Excellent balance of hoppy brightness and malty goodness with a noticeable but not overwhelming alcohol finish. I really enjoy this one. I can’t fully define why, but I won’t overanalyze it.
