3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ brewery. Pours a clear dark reddish orange appearance with an off white head. Light chocolate, caramel, a touch fruity nose. A bit syrupy, sweet caramel malty, caramel, lightly piney flavor. Not hard to drink but not my favorite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery - hazy dark ruby - despite the dark color, it tastes more like a "regular" double ipa - medium sweet - lots of earthy citrus, pine and an almost minty hop note - high acidity, but not abrasive - acidity and bitterness are tempered by a light caramel sweetness on the tail end - a touch of toasty malt on the tail end separates this from a regular iipa - if you were in the mood for a hoppy strong ale, you could do a lot worse.

In my opinion this beer served from the breweryís English Beer Engine was very smooth. Iím not a big hops guy, but this way very tasty on the way down and I didnít taste it later with every little burp!
