not too hoppy at all. Maybe even some slight chocolate taste in there? probably the best IPA ive ever had... and I don’t like IPAs... but tasted it when I was sick so...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A nice copper red hued dark gold brew with a very thin white head. The nose is light with some dusty bread and a little bit of apple. Hints of caramel. This tastes like metallic caramel with some apple. There is also some peanut character. Overall, a little boring, but not bad.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rough off light nose. Light clear browny colour.Light nut followed by some empty nutty malt elements but still very thin & with some responses in the end. But it really lacks character & interest.

12/29/12. 12oz bottle. Clear amber red pour with a small off-white head that fades to a soapy nothingness immediately. Faint caramel aroma with metal and tea. Plain apple flavor with caramel and must. Blegh.
