4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was poured up via cask along with Amarillo dry hopping at the brewpub. It has a copper – brown body and firm tan head. The aroma is kind of soft but gives you a nice load of spicy hops and earthy hops as well as a background of sweet malts. The taste has a very pleasing mix of spicy hops and citrus hop flavor that roll quickly into resiny hop bitteriness. Beneath the hops are malts and some caramel like malts too. Dig it.

Draft at the brewpub. Nice bronzed red color with a standing head. Delivers a sharp bite up front but settles into a mellow maltiness. Good. (#4087, from notes Jan 2011)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask and dry hopped @ Sun Up.
Pours a nice copper with a bubbly white head. Aroma was fresh hops, caramel, grass, pine, malt. Flavor is fresh hops, caramel, malt. Light bodied but very flavorful. It’s not fair to even compare the dry hopped cask offering to the regular but this was very enjoyable.
