   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
hopscotch (9558) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with a huge, frothy, off-white head. Terrific retention. The aroma offers restrained notes of caramel and bourbon. Light-bodied and watery with modest carbonation. The flavor is bitter, thin, and then dry. Not really all that boozy; just over-attenuated and too damn bitter. When did Phil forget how to brew good beer? He was a rock star in my eyes - back in the day, when he was brewing “inside” Southampton Publick House.

50belair (2490) - Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle shared by Hopscotch. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Cheap bourbon and malty characteristics. So confused. No direction, what the hell is this? Below average body and mouthfeel.

chinchill (2146) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2014
750{?} ml bottle. Deductions for overly thin body and a hint of tobacco smoke. Moderate bourbon barrel but perhaps a bit more than the underlying malt/hop load can withstand gracefully. A odd but acceptable touch of tartness

voyageurmike (64) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Disappointing in comparison to other beers Two Roads has produced. A harsh tasting bourbon ale with a bitter edge, not something I would try again.

Ratman197 (10224) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2013
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, bourbon, light oak, light vanilla and a hint of corn. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of caramel, oak, light bourbon and light vanilla with a crisp lingering caramel finish.

daknole (9466) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Amberish pour, light head. Bourbon, oak, vanilla, some hops, toasted grains. Its ok. I think the barrel notes are good but Im not sold on the base beer being treated this way.

thornecb (4545) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pours deep gold into a shaker. White head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Oak and vanilla aromas. Soft with sour grain and harsh whiskey front to back.
