3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
DATE TASTED: August 22, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Victory Hop Devil nonick... OCCASION: last night of camp thoughts--a good eight weeks...APPEARANCE: handsome reddish-brown body supports a thick off-white head that laces reasonably well; subtle bubbles... AROMA: sweet caramel and cinnamon; hops are light and aromatic--suggestive of soft pine; malts lend a Scottish allure...PALATE: like a brown ale, beginning with a solid malty backbone; hops tickle the teeth, but the malt holds the trump in the profile...TASTE: significant warming aftertaste; medium-bodied, almost an IPA; the alcohol is palpable... OVERALL: an intriguing purchase that may not live up to its bomber status; rounded enough to be a thought on St. Patty’s day, but not powerful or substantial enough to demand attention on a non-holiday night; not much of a summer beer either; still, not without its merits or usefulness...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Napa Smith. Clear orange/amber colored beer and a white head. Lots of banana and fruity, peachy esters. Some bread, caramel, and grassy hops. There’s a strong toast, caramel, and vanilla note to the flavor. Light hop profile. Somewhat grassy and floral. Fine for this sort of beer, even if it’s probably flawed.
