3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery. Amber/ orange color with lasting head retention in a sample glass. Aroma has notes of grapefruit and a bit of resin as well as a odd herbal note.
Flavor has a good amount of caramel malt and pine. In the finish it shows a strange herbal essence. The bitterness is mostly pine resin.

On tap at the brewery. Hazy dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Orange citrus, dull pine, and some floral notes in the aroma. Bitter caramel water with bland hops. Not overly offensive but not a repeat buy either.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
The name suggests a hoppy ale of wanton, destructive power. The beer itself is a malt-forward false promise.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Light amber and clear appearance with an off-white head and lacing. Fully hopped aroma of floral notes, herbs, citrus fruit and pine.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The appearance of this beer has an auburn color with an extremely large off-white head that has a slight orange tint. The aroma is a mixture of diacetyl, caramel malts, and resin and floral hops, and the taste is an impressive blend of mild bitterness, slight sweetness, and a touch of sourness. The palate combines a thick texture, long bitter finish, medium body, and a soft carbonation.
