3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of douglas88. Pours clear amber with ruby edges and thin tan head. The aroma is sharp spicy hops, earthy hops, malt roastiness and a sense of saltiness. The taste is similar with pleasing levels of spicy hops, earthy hops, a thin layer of grapefruit then picking up malt sweetness and a bit of roasted malts. Nice full flavored brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured medium reddish-orange with a tall, creamy beige head. The aroma picked up sweet nutty malts with very light accents of cocoa powder and some herbal hops.. soapier as it warmed up.. not a lot to get excited about. The flavor found nutty notes and caramel at the core.. more of a hop presence than the nose suggested, with pine and some fruity bitterness laced throughout.. a little sour plus some dank bitterness on the finish.. meh. Medium-bodied and rather sharp on the palate.. the dryhopping worked OK, but I don’t think it was a good base beer.
