3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours to a dark, amber body, a bit carbonated for a stone but this has a strong hoppy, taste to it, the only down side to this is the last lingers. A step away from being a IPA

Pours a clear dark orange color with a decent-sized head. Smells of caramel and maybe some butterscotch, tastes like hops, citrus, hops, caramel, and some hoppity hops. Finishes dry and leaves a pretty bitter taste in my mouth - not something I could drink all night.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark reddish amber pour that produced a tan head that was both big and thick. Smooth at first, then the hoppy bite comes through. A light medium body. It wasn’t anything special but it wasn’t bad either.

12oz bottle - Ruby/amber color and makes a small white head. Aroma is malty, sweet with citrus hoppiness and lightly roasted. Taste starts out with a hoppy spice and finishes with a roasted malt character. Nicely balanced. Thin and smooth palate.

Deep, dark ruby/chestnut brown color with dark golden orange hues. Smells like some bitter pine hops. Tastes like pine hops, not super bitter, quickly followed by roasted malts.
