3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Sugar Maple. Chunky thick burgundy brown body. Steady beige head. Interesting West Coast action. Not World Class, but still a respectable offering. Balanced, but also test-tubish and artificially bitter. Syrupy chemical hop bite. Ingredient overload, but still not a quality product. OK, drinkable, but boring. Tame, lame.

Growler - Flowery hops, with some pine and slight alcohol. Clear dark amber with a decent brown head. Earthy hops , nutty, spice and amber malts. A little heat in the end. Not bad smells better than it tasted, but still good.

3 day old growler to tulip
Oak, caramel, bubble gum, bourbon, and orange and cherry aromas. A tad hazy deep amber with little head. Taste of cherry, bourbon, alcohol, clove. The palate is smooth and oily with a moderate alcohol burn. A very complex and enjoyable beer.

Bottle. Pours murky brown with a red tint. Big frothy head that leaves a good lacing. Sweet caramel aroma and flavor. Notes of citrus, vanilla and toffee. Amber ales are not my favorite style, but I was impressed by this one. Nicely done.

On tap @ the Bruery. Pours reddish copper with thin head. Aroma is sweet roasty malt and earthy hops. Taste is clean roasty caramel malt with thin somewhat harsh bitter hops. Quite oaky and dry on the finish. Excellent for an amber but maybe I was expecting more from a big red from these guys.

On tap at the Bruery; a light brown color with a khaki like head. Aroma of citrus, fig, and dark fruit. Flavor had a bit more complexity with some caramel/toffee. Good overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at The Bruery. Muddy burnt orange pour. Medium to weak foam. Nose is hefty sage and white pepper. Bright and herbal. Taste is bright lemon and lime, not sticky, fairy dry and dusty with bitter rind and heavy coriander. Good, refreshing despite appearance. Bright herbs abound. Shockingly different than expected.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
nose of citrusy, centennial hops with a moderate wood/oak character, toffee like malt notes. moderate hop bitterness that is supported by a biscuity and sweet malt bill. overall very pleasant, up front, with a slightly drying astringency, possibly a combo of hops and wood. I quite like, especially at the price point. good stuff

Un malt délicat et complexe, une touche de centennial et de vanille dans un liquide aussi facile à boire que précieux.

Cross between a red and a pale ale. Cascade on the nose - big time. A little bitter finishing, but very good overall. This is very close to what I like.
