3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Abv 7.7 %.
Deep amber/ oak -hazy
small head off-white
citrus/grapefruit some caramel
medium bitterness and finish
Hides the alcohol well and has qualities of some old ales I have had. It is good but seems to be on the brink of being muddled and going completely off one way or the other. It is balanced but just so.

Tall can. Pours red with a sticky, rocky off-white head. Aromas of sweet malt and resiny, piney hops. Juicy, fruity flavors--brown sugar and grape, cut grass, melon and floral tones with sugar cookie notes. Fresh and enjoyable. Light mouthfeel. Really very nice.

16 once can. Nice hoppy citrus pine body and taste. Was expecting a bigger beer with this category. I imagine American Strong as more of a big red ale. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2/20/15. Sampled during RBWG 2015. Amber pour with a small tan head, good lacing. Great aroma, mild caramel hints, loads of fresh hops - citrus, pine, tropical fruits, dank. Okay flavor, caramel, burnt caramel, toffee, mild bitterness and hop presence. Not bad. Laughed that since we were in Florida this was passed around with people saying "not *that* seventh sun."

16iz can the poured a medium brown with light tan head. Aroma is mild to medium malt base with some nose of hops. The flavor comes up short for me for the style. Should have more sweet malt than what it does and there should be a nice warm alcohol burn which there isn’t. Not a bad beer but not a strong ale.
