3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany color with a decent laced head. Malty aroma with a strong sense of hops. Slightly watered down but some hops in there. Aside from that there is not much there. Was expecting more.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle from Costco. It pours a handsome dark red color with a lasting orange head. The aroma is not too strong, but nicely hoppy with pine and a little citrus. Some robust dry maltiness. The flavor is well balanced with a touch of malt sweetness up front followed by a strong earthy, piney hop finish. Little caramel, red currants, dark bread… tasty stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. It’s a copper colored beer, clear, and with a thick, off-white head. It’s mostly hoppy on the nose, citrus and pine cones, with a solid shot of caramel. The flavor is nicely bitter, not too sweet, with the same food ratings found in the aroma. Full body, semi-dry, ands with a pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish. A really fine brew. 130805
