3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a nice dark, clear brown/red with a moderate head that slowly faded to a nice lacing. Aroma was primarily of the hops - piney, fruity (pear). Taste was similar with a mix of piney, pear, apricot hop flavors and a subtle malty backbone. Although hoppy, the finish was not too bitter. Palate was very nice. Overall, this is a complex IPA that works well for those of us that are not big IPA fans to begin with.
A new glarus beer I haven’t had before! What better time that a week in Wisconsin to try it? StoutBeerReviews (257) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2017

Pours a hazy brownish black on tap with bubbly tan brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild piney and citrus hops with a solid roasted and chocolate malt backbone. Taste follows, nothing super assertive, but balance is solid and nothing offensive. When this was first made it was a new style, now its a little played out, but this is a decent one. randy1969 (89) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2017
Roasty malt aromas with spicy, citrus hops. Sparkling liquid with dark brown color under a sparkling tan head. Light to medium body with a bitter finish. Average carbonation. This has become my fave New Glarus brew Carlisle (815) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2017
Draft. Pours dark brown-black with thick, light tan head and substantial lacing. Floral and pine hop aroma. Bright pine hops upfront followed by some subtle chocolate malt notes. kathouse (1940) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - MAY 30, 2017
From an old bottle. Taste is roasted malts first, followed by a good hop bitterness and flavor. JPDIPSO (6293) - Wauwatosa, USA - FEB 3, 2017
Dark brown liquid with a moderately sized creamy light tan head. Scents of pine and mild citrus atop some roasted malt, mild dark chocolate and coffee. Light sweet start that leads to mild juniper and citrus. A return of roasted and toasted malt in the finish. Linger mix of malt and pine. Nice.
