3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours to a lightly hazy copper penny colored body with a creamy white head. The aroma is a light peach and caramel malt. The flavor is bitter English hops and toasty malts. Nice English hoppy bitterness. Good malt flavor. The palate is medium bodied, nice creaminess and a velvety mouthfeel. The body has substance and is filling.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden with a touch of haze. A mild aroma with some dry malt and floral hops. Dry and unassuming in flavor as well. Mild dry malt with a again some floral hops, but also a touch of herbal hops that are more foreboding. A dry finish that envelops the malt and helps the sweetness evaporate. A brew that’s is easy to quaff and actually slightly dangerous as it could be thought of a session ale.

Described by our waitress as a bitter IPA. The description was dead on. On first sip, hops overwhelm your mouth, but as it goes down you are left with a dry bitter taste that is quite enjoyable. A lovely beer that made my afternoon at work a little more tolerable.
