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.
