Pours dark reddish brown with medium beige head. Aroma is sweet malt and floral and pine hops. Taste is sweet caramel malt upfront with some juicy sweet citrus on the follow through. Aftertaste is lingering sweet citrusy hops. Palate is thin and somewhat sticky. Overall nice balance and very drinkable.

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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is pine, green onions/celery and spices. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, a good hint of green onions/celery that fades into being more mild heat, malts and a dry and bitter finish. Could have done without the green onion/celery flavor, otherwise it was decent.

Bottle. Deep garnet pour, one-finger beige head. Nose is resiny, with notes of dark berries, candied citrus, caramel, and bark. Sweet and hoppily bitter. Sticky but dry palate. I don’t generally dig this kind of beer, but this one sort of hit the spot.
