3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a deep copper/mahogany color with a medium sized fine beige head that leaves thick lacing. The aroma has a sweet caramel malt base, some citrus and juicy tangerine hops, a spicy note and even a light floral note. The flavor has adds some toasted malts to the caramel, citrus is there, but this is more citrus rind and earthy hops with a big bitterness to the finish. Tasty enough, my only suggestion would be more flavoring hops for the finish and less bittering hops.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is deep copper to brown, pretty murky, thin whispy layer of beige suds. Cloudy linen scent. floral hops and robust sweet carmel, some faint banana. Pert carbonation, mouthfeel average to thin, very bitter finish, carbony/resinous. Bitter resin and pine hop flavor, somewhat indistinct malt character that just adds roundness to the flavor overall. Straght forward bitter beer that’s not too strong but lacks complexity.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at FH North Olmsted, 9.7.2013. Big deep ruby color, with a fairly hopped nose though none of the hop smells stand out, perhaps chinook? can’t quite tell. taste is chewy and big, lots of malt and slight roast.. touch of heat, but nothing too bad... just too thick and syrupy for me .

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not getting the aroma I was expecting out of this one. Almost enough sweet toasty malt to stand up well to the bitter hop onslaught. But without the aroma, go buy a Gordon(aka G’night) instead.

12 oz. bottle, part of the Beer Camp 12 pack. Pours a deep ruby red with clear edges. One finger creamy beige head with a good amount of lace. Strong citrus hop aroma with a sweet caramel malt background. Lots of juicy citrus flavor softened by sweet malty goodness. Full bodied. Yummy!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark ruby - fairly impressive lace - nose is about what you’d expect, which isn’t to say it’s bad, just predictable - a heavy dose of sweet caramel and dark fruit followed by an assertive and citrus heavy hop onslaught - creamy, full mouthfeel - extremely bitter and aggressive, but SN know how to pull this off without it being abrasive, which they do here - malts are rich and full, but still take a back seat to those assertive citric and woody hops - certainly a good rendition, but they did one of these in last year’s beer camp release - they also have yet another IPA in there - I certainly hope they release some unique beers next year because right now they just seem to be going through the motions.
