1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours with a hazed bronze hued body with a medium sized off-white head with some lace. Aroma... Probably the most diacetyl that I have smelled in a commercially produced beer in the last 9 months. Butterscotch, vanilla pudding, maple, and butter...yeah, just as appealing as it sounds in your 9% IPA. Flavors confirm that this will be a drain pour. Butter and Aunt Jemimah with citrus zest and more fake maple syrup. Sickly levels of diacetyl. Lively carbonation and slightly oily. 20 of the 22oz Poured down the drain. I honestly hope this is a packaging issue and they sort it out ASAP. More than willing to re-rate, but this was foul!

Aroma of herbs, spices and hops. Pure golden color with a large foam. Basic flavors of biscuit, yeast and hops. Overall, very yeasty with some biscuit and bread undertones. I’d give this a C rating.

Pours a golden bronze with an off-white head. Aromas of mild caramel and resin with a hint of pine. Any hops flavor is almost completely overpowered by malt - more like a mild pale ale than an imperial IPA.
