Pours very black with a slight fruity pebble aroma. A lot of dark fruits and hops. Pretty good for the given style.

Solid for the style, but this isn’t my thing. Too weird. Give me a Road Slush any day.

Bottle. Brown with a tan head. This beer tastes like dirt and grass, but not in a way that is too off putting...if that’s possible. Some hop mixed in there too. Bitter at the end.

Pours black with a thick frothy head. Nose is hoppy. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is predominately hops with dark roasted malt providing the backbone. Fairly dry finish. A real treat for hopheads and an enjoyable beer for all others. Try it with pastrami and rye.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Mars Cheese Castle. Foamy dark brown pour, and a bright grapefruit citrus blast hits right away, in contrast to the dark color. But then a subtle sinister underbelly of roasted grain and licorice wait in the shadows. The surprisingly thin body of this beer detracts from the nice balance of pine cones and grapefruit, and a touch of milk chocolate. So close to being incredible, will just have to settle for being really good...

Really? Do you just take all your "standard" beers and make them a mild ale of some sort? Come on. I love your fruits and unchained series, but this is shit.

Pours as black as a stout, but tastes as good of the best West Coast IPAs. The NG IPAs are always fantastic I just don’t know why there are no year round IPAs on their schedule. I can only hope that this one is back sooner vs later.
