Can from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy copper amber with a yellow/white head. Lots of hop in the aroma. Med body/mild carb. Flavor is a pretty strong dose of mild roast caramel with a large amount of hop. Floral/resin/citrus. The bitter really shows up strong in the finish. Good brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to LtDan. Really? A 7.3% 93IBU ESB? Pours with a hazed amber-orange hue and a tan head that fades in the time it takes to write this sentence. Aroma of hops: pine, orange peel, toffee and cake. Smells a bit like a faded DIPA. Taste is hoppy, pine, bitter, malty. A bit astringently bitter. Some orange. Kind of a messy/faded IPA more than a bitter, although there is plenty of lingering bitterness. Malt profile is nice though. Bready with some caramel on the finish. Clean on that account. Even if the brewer was going for something else, this comes across as a faded and underattenuated IPA.

crunchy toasty malt (crackers, light caramel, pleasant nuttiness) with bold hop nose (earthy, nutty, raw). a bit syrupy and rough but those things seem to balance out each other and keep this one in line. alcohol isnít noticeable, malt is toasty and firm and the hops are earthy.
