3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler on draft. Pours a hazy golden with a thinner khaki head, leaving a wall of lace. Nose involves citrus, oak, bourbon, and butter. Quite sweet, quite bitter, lightly tart. Medium to full bodied, oily, softly carbed, round, with a long soapy resiny bitter finish. Decent brew, though muddled with competing elements for me.

From a growler. Heavy hop flavors in this one. Good stuff. Pretty complex.

Sampled at GABF 2013. Pours an orange with some thin, eggshell head. Musty nose, pine, dried herbs, wood, earthy mushroom. Flavor is malty, brown sugar, leafy, root veg, orange, pine. Zesty finish. Odd.

Pretty good. It was your average shorts beer. They continue to be hit or average with me.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler: somewhat cloudy pure copper & deep amber, not much of a head, just a thin, janky collar. Aroma is some sweet dark fruits, plums, lots of sweet citrus & tropical notes of mango, papaya, and orange. Melon? High floral & flowery presence. Mild oak & vanilla, not much bourbon. Taste has more bourbon presence, still pretty mild. Oak, pineapple, papaya, tangerine, & other sweet fruits. Very timid bitterness. Mild ashy & floral hop flavor in the finish. Seems to get more bitter with time, back of the tongue. Not bad for a style I'm not incredibly fond of.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours slightly translucent amber with thin fine head. Aroma of a sweet boozy, dusky, slightly hoppy. Lots of lacing. Medium Mouthfeel. Taste is a sweet booze, light bourbon. Then bitter light hops. Real nice balance with lots of flavor but not overpowering. Awesome
