2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a fairly hazy reddish brown color with a thick light tan head on it. Nose is obviously hoppy, but it smells old, like the hops are old, like the beer has sat on the shelf too long. Taste is pretty dry, actually, and awfully malty with a lot toastiness in there. Meh.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours dark brown with red hues in the murky ale. Some surface tan foam. Nose has some spicy hops and plenty of malt character which is a tad sharp. Some hints of spiced pear and brown sugars. Sweet flavor with obvious alcohol and little hop presence IMO. There a bit of an acetone character - not impressed with the flavor here. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a wet, chemical finish. I’m not going to purchasing another one of these.

Aroma is pine, mild/medium sweetness and a slight mustiness. The flavor is grapefruit, strong tropical fruit notes, spices/almost vegetable-like and hop resin-bitter and tangy in the finish.

Pours an amber red with a beige head and aroma of malt, hops, caramel and fruits. Taste is similar, sweet with lots of rich flavor - fruits, hops, malt, caramel, and toffee leading to a bitter finish with alcohol coming through. Nice brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at pony with Andrew. Deep clear amber body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is chock full of caramel and syrupy resin. Mouthfeel is medium with maple syrup dominating. Backing notes of clean caramel malts and resiny hop. Overall, too syrupy in my opinion.
