Bottled. Pours an attractive red brown with substantial head. Starts strong on the hops and finishes heavy on the malts. 1-2 punch.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured (probably too) cold right out of the fridge with a thick, gold tinged cream head that quickly subsided and no lace. Color is a clear honey amber with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is hop at first then a nice heavy caramel with a little toffee, malt. Flavor’s like nose, fairly dry, heavy carbonic tang, not a lot going on. Body’s a tad thin while carbonation is a bit overbearing. Finish is like flavor, short, and totally forgettable. Wish I could’ve let this warm a bit first.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chocolatey aroma. Thick and lightly bitter. Nutty and smooth with a long-lasting finish. Definitely one of the better ones I’ve had from them.

Not bad overall. Its saving grace is a nice toasty malt note. Otherwise, however, this is an above-average amber.

Draft pour at 192. Pours a dark red with an incredible fresh hops aroma. Drew me into this one right away. Really nice hop forward flavor with a nice malt balance. Really good beer here. Bitter finish. Very impressed.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly cloudy amber color. Faint aroma of malt with just the ever slightest hint of hops. Taste sits right in the middle between hops and malt. Decent beer.

It’s a good beer, presentation not the best but pretty good taste. Tried better ones.
