3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

6 pack with Indian food. Decent, booze sneaks up on you. This one is all west coast- piney, resin, slick, citrus and tropical with caramel malts in the background. Not jumping up and down about this one, but I didn’t stop after one.
