Bottle-12 pk beer camp purchased at Total Wine in Springfield, VA August 2013
Pours deep copper hue with a lovely soapy lite kacki head. Nose is very resionous, pine, grapefruit, caramel, toasted grains, Smells awesome! Perfect marriage of hops and malts. Flavors are very resinous hops, nice sweet toasted malts, caramel, lots of resin. Lots of piney resinous bitterness here. Body is full, lush and somewhat over carbonated however, that aids to this beer actually. Its like Bigfoot in some ways, just not quite as big and./or malty. fantastic brew!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of strong hops. Deep crimson brown appearance with nice lacing. Strong flavor of hops upfront with a secondary wave of maple, brown sugar, cinnamon and oak. Alcohol is under the radar on this one. Overall, tastes like a standard american strong ale. Not bad at all yet, nothing really special or outstanding about this one.

Bottle from the Folsom BevMo. Pours dark ruddy copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is malty with a touch of citrus. Med body. Flavor is malty with a heavy dose of citrus/resin hop. Maybe even something earthy in here. It’s tending towards a dry finish, but the malt is strong. Drinks very nicely.
