2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had on tap at the brewery in August 2009. Poured a dark copper color with minimal head. The smell contained some hops, but not nearly what I was expecting given the name. There is a significant malt presence, but the malts themselves don’t blend terribly well, and the hop overlay is not enough to disguise that fact. The beer itself is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Drinkability is average.
Serving type: on-tap

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy dark orange with a thick white head and lacing on the glass. Nose is citrus and pine resin, slight hints of grain sweetness. Flavor is more balanced than expected, moderate-high hop bitterness up front with moderate citrus/pine hop flavor quickly transitions to thick grainy malts, light toast and caramel, finishes bitter and slightly sweet. Full body, moderate-high prickly carbonation, chewy texture. A big 10% DIPA/bwine hybrid, would peg as either a malty DIPA or American bwine with the prominent hop character; solid and balanced but not quite at the standout level; quite drinkable even at 10%.
