3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Moriartys in Philly. Nice looking copper pour with a lasting off-white head. Hops and malt playing nicely together. Spicy and dry with some medium red fruit. Red plums. Dragonfruit. Vanilla extract. Celery seed. Cinnamon. Tangerine peels. Sugared ginger. Black pepper. Clean, crisp and juicy but thankfully very dry brew. Feels fuller and more potent than the billed ABV suggests. Better than expected.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent softly carbonated copper colored body. The mild aroma was hoppy malty and dough. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt hops and caramel. A decent one that I would consider buying again.
