3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice heft and good malt flavors to stand up against the soapy, piney hops here, which are in abundance. Slick palate with a medium plus finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
4oz sampler at the Mad Fox brewpub. Poured a black color with a small off-white head. Aroma was sweet tropical notes and floral hop notes. Flavor was a nice balance of citrus and caramel notes. Alcohol is pretty well masked, making this pretty easy to drink.
