3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a tall can. Pours coca-cola color, with a nice tan head. Clear dark amber in color. When I opened the can I was hit with a pungent hop aroma. I was expecting similar taste, but it fell a little short. Initial taste is sweet caramel malts, but quickly goes dry, and very faint citrus, grapefruit flavor. One good thing on the taste is I did not detect much, if any, alcohol. I think this could be a really good beer, but it’s just missing some more flavor. On the fence with this one....I see potential I guess.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Clear copper pour with a 1 finger foamy head that fades to a messy ring and leaves chunky lacing. Aroma has strong grapefruit, caramel, toast, and red fruit. Taste has a nice moderate sweet and bitter balance. Grapefruit peel, toasted malt, rye bread, light flowers, and light caramel. Medium body. Pretty good overall.

Pour out of 16 oz can, hazy dark red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, grapefruit, caramel, toffee into some spice, touch of red fruit. Taste was a mix of caramel, toffee, sweet orange, grapefruit, hints of bread, finishing fairly bitter. Interesting, decent.
