3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. The aroma is nice and hoppy with subtle oak. The taste is very good. The hops are strong, but not overwhelming and not bitter at all. The oak does some nice flavoring to it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle for 3.49. Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel, vanilla, fruit and a little hoppy, Taste is similar. Body is thicker and creamier than your average IPA. A little different take on an IPA. I like this one quite a bit though.
