Ibrew2or3 (6926) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 3, 2013
The $7.99 bomber pours with a clear ruby red to amber body supporting a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet notes of prunes, raisins, molasses and sweet malts as well as severely blunted pine hops. The taste begins sweet with brown sugar dredged plums and then it quickly moves into pine hop bitterness. To midway and into the finish the estery sweetness surges forward and picks up some blueberry notes to go with the prune and raisin fruitiness. Cool brew.

A little lighter in body than some, but with a nice sturdy malt backbone and ample hopping and bitterness. Fairly basic as the BA version was, but balanced and tasty."

Bottled, 22oz. Appearance is gorgeous, deep copper color with a fat rocky head. Fine lacing left behind in the glass. Aroma of caramel, wheat toast and brown sugar. Flavor is malt forward with medium sweetness. Notes of clove and sautéed raisins persist through the prolonged bitterness. A tad more balance and this would be killer. Really tasty! Hats off to a Rough Draft for coming up strong in the SD beer scene in the recent years.

Hazy dark amber beer with a small pale cream coloued head. Palate is smooth, turning minerally crisp. Nice malt, fairly rich and creamy with a little toffee. Pleasant hops - mellow marmalade and a little noble hop like spice. Fairly neutral finish. Joins up well. Very drinkable.
