3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pros: Nice appearance, long lasting cream. Cracker-like malts, cereal, nice balance and fresh flavors.
Cons: Nose is very light on the hop, slightly milky, sour cream, chive, kinda nasty. Dull. Not very bright, or assertively hopped.
A decent ale.
I hate that I am forced to write a comment, when all I want to do is rate the beer for my own reference. What happened to not having to integrate with ratebeer.com?

Grunt fill from Albertsons. Dark amber pour, small creamy head, lots of lacing. Aroma is nice rich blend of hops and malts, while taste features a much richer malt base. Caramel and toffee, nice hop bite at the finish. Much better than expected. DavidWoodruff (631) - Windsor, California, USA - MAR 2, 2017
Hazy orange with a thin white head. Citrus aroma. Both citrus and pine flavors. Definitely qualifies as a dank beer. Well done though unremarkable DIPA. hawthorne00 (4149) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2017
Bottle, can’t see a date. Amber with an off white head that’s soon a coat but laces OK. Aroma of kumquats, grapes, toast, some overripe tropical fruit. 6+ Sweet with caramel, peach, tropical fruit, citrus. Not very vibrant but pleasant enough. Resin and bitterness creep up. Another Mad River beer where it feels like they’ve chosen to make a harmonious beer rather than try to be on the bleeding edge. Fair enough. jiwookdo (74) - changwon, SOUTH KOREA - DEC 27, 2016

355 ml bottle. jamestulloch (4369) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Pours clear copper color with a small head. Resin and orange on the nose, malts, toffee, apricot. Flavor is malty and caramel-y, bitterness, resinous hops and mild sweet toffee, ripe fruits on the finish. Alcohol is not too strongly present but is there. Decent.
Bottle from Bridgend Service Station. Murky amber body with a thin white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of rye, pine and honey. Flavour of caramel, fig and dried leaves. Medium body with a powdery texture. Soft fizz. Quite sweet and heavy going. Tastes like a Barley Wine. andrewje41 (4389) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2016
12 oz bottle poured at a restaurant in Humboldt County. Pours a thick copper orange with a rocky foam head. Rich caramel and soft pine hops aroma with a matching flavor. Good malt bill. Creamy. Medium bitterness. Has a memorable sweetness to it. Not really July typenif double here. Doesn’t drink very easy, but has good things going for it. Not bad. kaser (6409) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2016
