2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A disappointing debut from this new local brewer with a great brand. Itís one of those sweet, overly bitter IPAs with no complexity, no hop aroma, no personality. Just bitter sugar water. Tons of chocolate, caramel. Blech.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Ambrr pour with a little head. Aromas has some fruit, herbal hop aromas. Herbal flavors and a good amount of malt presence. Too hoppy for the bartender here, not hoppy enough for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours clear amber-brown (mahogany!!!) with a creamy, white. Nice bready malt nose, some pine, caramel. Light to medium sweet flavor with toasted pine, wholegrain bread, some ripe orange. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Nicely balanced on the finish, some bitter orange rind, toasted pine, brown bread. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Fette Sau. Clear amber color with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of bready malt, piney hops and slight fruit. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Nice caramel aroma with a slightly bitter finish. A tasty amber, above average but not spectacular.

@ Singlecut. Pours copper with an off-white ring. Aroma is in your face piney hops. Quite the surprise there. Taste follows through and is not totally overpowering. Interesting how restrained the taste was considering the aroma. Palate was slightly thin, though they also had the beer on nitro. Didnít try the nitro, but Iím going to assume Iíd like the mouthfeel better there. Finish is bitter and does not linger long. Iím a fan of this one.

Draft: mahogany color with a thin white head, grainy aroma and taste, something is a little off with this beer for me. Mediocre.
