Tallahassee, Fl. - Whole Foods - 22 oz bomber. Pours a sparkling medium copper with a long lasting, but thinnish off-white head. Aroma has some sweet candy-like notes, a touch of cherries, Flavor is mellow, with some fruity cherry like accents, a touch of nice subtle bitterness, some toffee-like sweetness. Nicely textured mouthfeel. Pretty decent.

Three pints on tap at the Dana Point Board and Brew outlet on Golden Lantern, 2nd June 2015. Nice red hue to the brews looks, a weak, thin head appeared on all three pours. Malt lead to the nose with a semi-sweet caramel feel, taste also malty: good hop balance and a very easy to drink brew (hence the three pints0.

Sample at Grassroots in Jax. Nice bronze color with a tan head. Giddy aroma of sweeter hops and malt. Very balanced flavor with good bitterness but a solid backbone too. Nice.

Bottle. Rusty orange, wtih a big poofy head. This had a slight eruption, and given the source, may be a little dated. This has a wild side, a little funky, and a little dirty. But this drinks with a sturdy ruddy ale character. (#5947, 3/23/2015)

Not sure about this one. Seems a bit confused in terms of what is going on here. Aroma is stinky with a malt undertone. Taste doesnít quite knock you on you ass. Itís malty with some hops. The burp is not great with caramel strangeness. Finish is not great. Oh well, I had high hopes--taste like home brew and not in the good way.
There imperial stout is off the hook.

Bright burnt tangerine pour with a nice eggshell crown. Spotty lacing inside the glass. Fruity, yeasty, caramel, brown sugar, and a touch of citrus and alcohol. Didnít expect much and got what I expected.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours with a clear deep copper body that has amber hues and supports a nice looking tan head of foam. The aroma offers up some sweet maltiness laced with hops, sweet crystal malts, malt sweetened citrus hops and a bit of spicy Belgian yeast amid a fruity ester like note. The taste has a modest malt sweetness and sweet crystal malt notes but the hops are where itís at. I get a good dose of bitter floral and earthy tea hops as well as resiny pine that flow quickly into spicy Belgian yeast. To midway as the earthy almost dank tea mix builds a modest grapefruit bitter hop note comes to the surface and helps bring this to the finish. Good stuff.
