hopscotch (9242) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle… Cloudy burnt-caramel ale with a huge, rocky, off-white head. Great retention. The aroma provides nice spiciness, caramel and an assortment of herbs. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. The flavor is a good balance of light, fruity acidity, earthy bitterness and caramel sweetness. Finishes moderately bitter, mildly tangy and bone-dry.

burg326 (3766) - Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2012
On tap at Brass Tap for Local Takeover Night, poured a cloudy copper orange color, with aromas of pepper, grapes, some wine, and funk. Flavors are tart pears, pepper, grapes, and some sweet malt. Not always a fan of this breweries beers, but this one was different than the rest, real nice beer not too sour/acidic, just the right amount of tartness to make it enjoyable, and had a clean finish.

Auburn hazy in color, no head. Sweet nose. Champaign carbonation. Alcohol heat on the back of my palate. Some light hops. Yeast notes, some bubblegum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
