3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25th May 2015: on tap in The Yard House, Irvine. Cloudy pour with a deep red body and a head that gave off some good lacing. Mixed bag of aromas and flavours, semi-sour, the citrusy hops vying with the malts for supremacy. Plenty of things going on in the beer. Different and interesting.

Draft at the Bruery. Pours hazy copper with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like sweet citrus, marshmallow, doughy malt, and citrus hops. Very interesting. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like sweet citrus hops, light floral, and candied malt.

Enjoyable and as the description suggest, this is a brash one. Pours a nice reddish hue. Citrus hop notes and oak in the nose. flavor is piercingly bitter, with hints of oak. Not much else going on for me, but I certainly enjoyed it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a reddish brown with a huge thick and foamy off white head that leaves tons of lacing. Aroma is several hop varieties, herbs, oak, caramel and malt. Flavor is hop forward with the oak following immediately. A bit of caramel and malt in the finish, but any sweetness is masked by the oaky tannins and hop bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"Nice malty brew that still has a pretty decent citrusy hop bill. Caramel, toast and a little vanilla from the oak in the fore. Had with some awesome bigger brews from the Bruery, so this suffered a bit, but still quite nice. I think I’d enjoy this solo and will seek out again."
