3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2012 Sample at Pour House from Erica, pours a clearish copper brown with barely any head or lacing. It was on a hand pump which usually means the beer is going to suck ass. Aromas of disgusting stale booze, light hops, weird basement sewage, taste is almost worse then aroma, rye, stale malts, stale hops, light rust, caramel. I love amarillo hops but these must have been the most brown schwagged out nugs they could find. Please don’t age ipas any more, bottle them, then send them on there way. Brutal. Re-rate, much better then the first time I tried it, lots of sweet malt caramel and bitter hops. Good finish, moved it up a full point and a half.

Poured a slightly reddish amber color with a thin off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma with apricots, pine, and some flowers. Some sugar as well in the aroma with caramel malts. Taste is nice and crisp with lots of floral notes. Some good caramel with a touch of candy and apricots. Good hoppy notes. Finish is a bit smooth, not as bitter as expected. Maybe a little bit too sweet. Overall nice.
