3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost a ruby red pour. Creamy off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Smell is a nice big malty assault followed by a vanilla note and a slight hop presence. Sweet, rich malty flavor with a nice bitterness in the back. Some hop flavor with citrus notes.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle in large tulip glass (lot 3053) - nose is well advertised: malt, citrus, resin and pine. Sip adds nothing in the aroma department. Light body considering the high ABV. Very bitter but short lasting and offset with sweetness. I get the impression I’m drinking resin water.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep, dark, & coppery with a medium with a decent off white head. Aroma is sweet rich malts. Taste is rich malts up front quickly coating the palate with deep sweetness - almost oily. The finish is bitter and long with a flash of candy sugar. Good one.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear dark copper with frothy khaki head, nice lacing. Maple sugars, plum and pine nose. Plum, caramel malt sweetness, some herbal notes, drying bitterness on the finish. Heavier bodied and a bit boozy. Solid enough

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Drafting Room Exton. Pours hazy ruby with minimal head. Nose was vinous fruit, hops, caramel malt. Tasted of caramel malt, hops, some vinous fruit, but the hops didn’t pop. Seemed a bit flat also. Not bad, but not a world beater.

Dark amber color with basically no head. Aroma is roasted malt and alcohol. Taste is bitter, a combo of pine and grapefruit, with a serious backbone of sweet malt. The ABV is pretty apparent in the taste. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at blaws. Pours a reddish amber brown color. Smaller head. Aroma smells great- floral citrus hop. Smells a bit like 90 minute ipa. Medium bitterness. Sort of sticky texture. Lots of citrusy and floral hops. Is this a DF 90 MIPA? Tastes kind of like it. Nice bitter finish. Smooth. Very nice.

bottle - Pours deep red. The aroma is heavy on the citrus accented hops and includes some caramel malt. The flavor features high hops bitterness with good citrus notes and a solid lightly toasted caramel malt backbone. Bitterness lingers pleasantly on the palate. Very good.
