3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a very deep red color with a khaki head. The aroma is very hoppy with earthy, piney, spicy hops. There’s also some nice dense malts to balance it out with some cherry and slight hints of cocoa. The finish is very bitter with more pine and spice. Very full bodied. Big and brash. It kind of reminds me of a Stone beer. Somewhere between arrogant and double bastard.
