Draft at the brewery. Dark mahogany pour with a small off white head. Has a sweet malty brown sugar aroma with complex hoppiness: citrus, earthiness, pine. Moderately heavy body on this with more of that sweet brown sugar flavor at the start. This has a nice zippy fruity hop flavor that really makes it drinkable for such a heavy sweet brew, lots of citrus on it. Finishes with a lingering resinous cedar/pine bitterness and isn’t boozy considering the ABV.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at BB. Pours a beautiful red color, with a nose indicating some citrus hops. Flavor was a bit sweet for my taste, and a bit thin. Not bad, but need some work. Alcohol was very well masked.

Slightly hazy dull red colour. Peachy-fruitiness leads the nose with light caramel after that. Bloody good fresh melon/citrus taste. I swear it’s pulpy! More refreshing than any 10% I’ve ever had - if they hadn’t served me in a goblet I’d be inclined to think the guy was lying to me. Moderate body, and a fructose sweetness. More refreshing and tasty than brews half its weight...killer.
