PP Strg Ale Fst, gold to copper, sligh fruity nose with big resin citrus pine and apricot, finished by a biscut toast malt. Flavor paralled the nose malt did an exceptional job at balacing the heavy resin hops. Great carbonation, mouthfeel and silk on glass. Slight bitter astringency on the finish...made it crisp and clean

22 oz bomber from liquor store in Encinitas. No this a true to style ASA. It does have a nice hop aroma more to the earthy side but the malt dominates. The flavor is caramel and biscuit with very very alcohol warmth. Finishes malty then dry.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a light brown color with a thin white head.
S: A light hoppiness to it, but quite a bit of chocolate and caramel malt.
T: Not quite as sweet as I would have thought, but still a fair amount of caramel and dark fruits.
M: Kind of light on the tongue for a "big" beer. Good level of carbonation, but still, a bit thin on the feel.
D: Not terrible, but I don’t know if I’d want to drink it again either.
