3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is probably my favorite part of the beer... nice reddish brown pour with an almost pinkish head. Good hop smell initially but the roasty malt comes through as well as it opens up. Smells like Stone SSR. Roasty bread and subtle hops, mostly caramel malts. Decent stuff.
Dark amber/cider color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of toasted caramel malt, pine hops, & citrus; Flavor of slight roasted malt, caramel, spicy hops, some fruit, and citrus; Finish is fairly bitter; Nicely balanced; Pretty good. vinivini (2827) - Gomel, BELARUS - AUG 18, 2017
Bottle. Pours hazy brown with cream-coloured stable head. Rich malts aroma with additional citrusy hops. Medium body. Rich malty taste. Medium sweet. Caramel, toffee. The hops take their significance near finish. Citrusy, slightly earthy, resiny. Long hoppy finish. Good. ruigo (3088) - PORTUGAL - JUL 20, 2017
355ml bottle. Hazy amber with a small tan head. Caramel, brown sugar, citrus and pine. Good. Nuffield (4189) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2017
This looked o.k. (deep amber) and smelled good, but the same dimensions that others praised caused me to rebel. Heavy, resinous hops end with a long, intense bitterness. Not my thing. My solution was to use most of the bottle for cooking (a chicken marinade that called for beer). Bottle. wekker84 (2389) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2017

Bottle at home. A mind blowing smell and a solid bitter after taste make this one an enjoyable and relatively easy drinking ale. vipinvelp (4510) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2017
Clear dark ruby, tanned lacing foam head. Hoppy aroma and quite bitter in taste. Do no quite classify this as an amber ale, more dark IPA. Still OK though. (Velp 201704) skortila (5966) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2017
Bottled. 15cl sample. Old note. The aroma has caramel, pine, citrus, quite some fruit. Dark coloured beer with a medium sized off-white head. The taste is moderate bitter with caramel sweetness and piney hops, citrus, fruit. Medium bodied beer. Maris (1573) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2017
From a 355ml bottle on 4/2/2017. Pours a murk amber with the barest of heads. The nose features some caramel and fruit notes. Taste wise, this is big and assertive, coming across as bigger than 7%. There’s lots of sweet caramel and brown sugar, with a hint of fruit as well, but it’s defined by huge, assertive, lingering, resiny hops (Hop Flood is indeed an appropriate moniker). Full bodied with average carbonation. Damn this is good stuff. Big, complex, challenging and extremely satisfying. Probably better classified as an American Strong Ale. Another top flighter from Evil Twin.
