3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy ruby amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves reasonable lacing. Resin and floral hops mix with caramel malt and a touch of peach to create the aroma. Resin, kiwifruit and melon hops up front lead into a toffee malt mid-palate. White pepper and resin hops come into the finish. This is a very enjoyable imperial red ale, which really nails the balance between assertive hops and smooth malt that is such a hallmark of the style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to tulip
Aroma of toasted malt, pine, and alcohol.
Pours a dark reddish brown with a thick bubbly off white head, shrinking quickly to 2mm and then lasting. Taste is toasted malt, dark chocolate, and strong bitterness. It starts sweet and then ends bitter...so this is unbalanced. If both were together, I’d say this was a great beer, but as it is, it’s just good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Caramel, earthy piney hops and a slight bit of booze. Clear caramel with a thin brown head. Malty notes going into a bitter pine bomb. Finish is piney and bitter as well. Not bad, but some sweetness to balance would have been better.
