amber color, mildly hoppy aroma. not as bitter as some of the better ones but still pretty good, tasted notes of fig (i think)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beeer rocks. Heavily hopped with tons of protein and vitamin rich yeast floating around. Skip taking your multi-vitamin and forget about the burger... drink a few of these instead.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brownish to auburn in color with a thin but ever present tan head. Nice malt profile with flavors of chocolate and dates(?). However the bitterness is the star of this show from start to finish.

The beer pours a deep cloudy orange, the head is beige, the lace is adequate. Nose is malt, slightly citrus, and a bit sweet. The front begins malt sweet, the top is light, the finish is mildly acidic, nicely hopped and a very drinkable beer.

A little hoppier than I expected. Flavor OK. If you’re a hophead, its probably worth trying.

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bronxe color, creamy head. High alcohol content is hidden by the hops.

Reminded me a lot of a good pale ale, or even IPA. Tasty and bitter, with a nice finish.

a good bitter. rather british in style with strong bittering hpos and plesant balancing malts. should be great if cask-conditioned.
