1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Yuck! I acknowledge the fact that I bought the beers in this series older than optimal (they were dusty bottles sitting on a shelf), but this one is WAAAY worse than the rest so far. Aroma was weak. Caramel malt was all that was detected and it was a lot lighter than the rest. Pour was a nice enough murky dark orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was pretty nasty. Burnt caramel, sour toffee and buttered popcorn were the main flavors. The finish left a butterscotch flavor behind followed by a lemon sourness. Decent carbonation couldn’t help this beer.

bottle. Deep amber with small head and quite a bit of sediment. I know this bottle has got to be past prime, but I couldn’t pass it up when I saw it. I love Sorachi Ace hops. Here they’re a bit faded, but it’s still got plenty of solid flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a lightly hazed mahogany into the glass, with a generous eggshell head that leaves thick suds lacing. The nose is of caramel and candied oranges. Flavors of caramel, pale malts, mixed citrus, light biscuits and piney bitters finish with a biscuity flour bitterness that lingers appropriately. The drinkability is great, complex and substantive on the palate, but active and light enough to be quaffable. A great single-hop IPA!
