2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a deep mahogany with a half finger head that dissipates slowly. Had aromas of licorice, alcohol, cherries, raisins, and citrusy hop notes. Taste had a lot going on. Lots of malty flavors, and a bitter finish. None of it seemed to mesh very well, almost like these flavors were not compatible. I wasn’t impressed by this one.

Pour is a dull brown. The aroma is sweet. A little over carbonated a flavor is a little light compared to the nose. Decent, not great.

The red ale is really the shining light of this brew! It stands up well to the hops. I still get TONS of hops which is great! Solid malt backbone that does not over power the beer! Love it!

Amber pour with a khaki head. Caramel malt sweetness, some fruity hops, and a nice floral character. Pine, citrus peel, and a bit of rye bread. The flavor is malty up front with caramel, toast, and sugar. Sweet fruit, grapefruit, and some pine bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 102. Cloudy deep red with a thin fading head. Nice pine and slightly dank hops with some earth on the nose. Bitter front end continuing all the way through, but kept in check with the malts. Solid DIPA. Walks a good line between the resin and some nice orange citrus. Is there rye in this? Has a good earthiness to it.

Very hazy deep amber - red beer. Big pale tan head. Palate is smooth and slightly soft and slightly dry. Smooth malt, light toffee and a touch of cream. Whisper of red berry fruits before pleasant marmalade hops bring up the rear. Smooth finish. Comes over like a barleywine. Nice!

Hazy dark reddish brown with a small off white head. The aroma is resinous Chinook hops and some dark crystal malt. The flavor is similar with a nice balance of sweet and bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Pretty good.
