3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Craft Ale. Pours clear early season hay color with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is hot, resiny hoppy, spirity. Tastes hoppy, fruity, resiny, hot, perhaps a bit malt light. Comes off a bit like Hog Heaven, with a spirity hoppy profile. Brazen and big, indeed, and truly a beer that matches the Pirate skull label.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle-pours bright orange with a very small fizzy white head around the rim of the glass. pretty lightly carbonated. nose is kind of off to me-lite hops, sugar, fussel alcohol, lite resin. nothing i really like in a IIPA. almost smells like a lite barleywine. flavors of fussel alcohol, resin, sugar cookie, lite pine and resin, but mostly on the finish. there is really no hop profile that sets thing thing off. A high ABV IIPA with no real identity. really hot finish of alcohol and pine. i feel like im breathing fire! palate seems to be thin, which may cause the issue of too much beer, not enough flavor or identity. Need ALOT of work to compete with the awesome IIPA’s just up the road.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from JohnCoctsin. Served in a tulip.
Pours a clear light amber color with a single-finger white head that leaves some nice spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries plenty of bready malt and some light caramel. Hops? Nope. The flavor is bread and some very light caramel and sweetness. Bread crust is the most apt description. Hops? Nope. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation. Bitterness? Nope. Three strikes.
