Hoppy at first but then easing back, head clings nicely along glass, would make an excellent beer with food or by itself, not overpowering on any one thing. A well made solid beer

0,355l Bottle. Amber colored. Low and thick head. Aroma is grapefruity, black tea and citrussy hoppy. Taste: Cracker, passion fruit, pine needle and little parfym. Pretty full body, with pleasant, fizzy carb and long bitter finish.

Local brew, but I haven’t had a chance to try it at the brewery yet. Tried it for the first time out of the bottle. Pours clear amber color with minimal head. I didn’t find it quite as bitter as some of the reviewers here. Taste is pretty hops forward, with a good spiciness. It could use more malt to balance the flavor.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with a thin white head. Particularly hoppy without too much bitterness. I was struck by the light palate, a little too thin and watery feeling in my mouth. A good beer for a warm summer night.

Dark amber almost brown color with good wheat colored head. Decent scent with Carmel and toasted malt smell. Great taste of pine with the toasted malts. Almost like a Smokey IPA

bread, grass, citrus, a liitle bit unsure about the aroma, i feel the hop clearly, and feel that the malt is a little hidden. But the more i smell the more the malt come in front...LOL.cloudy, nice amber coulor, medium creamy head. The bitter is medium, but a liitle in the aftertaste, medium sweetnes, i feel that the balance is nice..medium body, creamy, the finish feels like it gone hang and then it just stop. Easy drinking and good ale,

Bitterness is overpowering. Beautiful chestnut color, pleasant aroma. Hops attack palate, dry and astringent. No hop flavor.
