3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft: Pours a transparent copper mahogany with a small spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of semi-sweet toasty dark caramel malts with a light grapefruity hoppiness. Starts with pretty good fullness and a semi-sweet earthy chocolate flavor with a hint of nuttiness before a drier, smooth doughy finish. Pretty true to style and enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Winking Lizard Crosswoods location. Clear brown pour with a medium tan head. Citrus and pine hop nose with roast, apple and a bit of maple. Earthy hop flavor with a lot of tea character and a bit of roasty. Not bad, but I’m hoping Life & Limb is much better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Falling Rock - a very dry, very hoppy brown ale, with some dry cocoa and roasted nuts - but mostly, the hops are the star of the show, and compliment a subtle woodiness - a touch of brown sugar sweetness, but for the most part, this is a very hoppy, dry, tasty session ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ The Front Door, Boise: Pours a light amber color with a light head. The nose is light and toasty with some light hops and some fragrant malt. Not quite as full and fresh as its predecessor but it’s an easy drinking beer. Partigyle is a bit dated, but it’s fun to taste the outcome on certain styles such as this. Unfortunately, they blew this one out of the water with the tumbler so there’s no need for this anymore.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft @ Isaac Newton’s. Low gravity beer is dark, has birch and sugar notes but really is less drinkable than the big beer version. Not a fan.
