3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma was a bit weak, just wanted more hop notes. Aroma is mostly malty notes with a underdeveloped piney, citrus hop character. Taste is similar with more malt, toastiness present with a lackluster hop goodness. Finish is smooth and malty with a lingering creamy caramel note. Not a bad brew per se, but still it’s kind of a miss and lacks some of the hoppy, bitterness one would crave from this style.

Single can. Pours a very rich copper with moderate head and lacing. Nice hoppy nose. Taste reminded me of dark, buttery pancakes, which seems to make for a nice beer. Nice big finish. Solid.

Poured from can into snifter, coppery color with healthy head, strong hoppy aroma. Tastes great, hidden ABV, pleasantly surprised by this one. Glad I got a 6 pack.

Amber color out of the bottle with a thin slick of beige head. Sweet fruity nose. Caramel and hop resin candy flavors. Some tropical fruit and red grapefruit juice over a strong malty backbone. Not your typical west coast IPA, but quite nice.
