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.
