3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Fred back in January- Pours a dark orange.amber with nice off white head and good lacing throughout. Aroma was quite fruity, some citrus and a bit of earthiness. The flavor did not come off as stong fruity as the nose suggested, but there was some spicy hops and earthy/piney hops with a sweet malt backing. Not bad, but I would like to see this experimental hop in another capacity.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a dark amber color. Very dark for the style. The aroma is sweet hoppy with caramel and... cocoa? Can’t be, but I can’t help but sense it a little. Also a little pine and sweet fruit. The flavor is light bodied and frankly, a bit weak. Piney, spicy and caramel. Lackluster finish. Very clean and well brewed, but seriously lacking in oomph.
