Citrusy, grapefruit aroma, Cascade hops, and roasted caramel malt combine to create this medium-bodied brew with flavor hints of chocolate and toffee. This bitterness is perfectly balanced, yielding an easy-drinking, but malty, session beer.

Malts: Pale, Munich, Extra Special, Pale Chocolate, Special Roast, and Caramel
Hops: Chinook, Cascades, Columbus, Kent Golding

beer_rookie (532) - Arkansas, USA - NOV 17, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2016 Pours a dark amber color. About two fingers tan colored head. Good retention, good lacing. Looks very nice, darker than your typical amber.

Aroma however, is different. Medium roasted malt. Also and most importantly, very medicinal. I can?t quite place it. Iodine maybe? Let?s move along and get this over with.

Taste is creamy, bitter. Malty, and... that medicinal thing again. Although the taste isn?t quite as bad as the aroma.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. An oily aftertaste, boy does it linger. Metallic, weird.

Overall, it?s bad. I used to see occasionally these gag gifts, like armadillo in a can. Did they really contain armadillo? Is it edible? Who knows, but I?m certainly NOT going to open it to find out. This is pretty much the same thing. Buy it if you must, but you really don?t want to open it. I?d say that no, I would never buy this again, and I will not recommend it. This is one of the worst beers I have ever had.

Light chalkiness and a hop presence. Toasty and burnt flavors. Nice head that fades. Average Amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

can @ Double Shoppe / Ocean Springs MS --- Hazy dark amber color, thick beige head, swirls of lace. Taste is semi-sweet malt that adds assertive carbonation on the swallow, then bitter chocolate hops at the end. A lot for 4.5%, but the bittering doesnt compliment the openers very well. Close, but no cigar.

12oz can. Pours a hazy dark copper color with an off-white soapy head with good retention. Aroma is not bad, a bit bready -- taste is actually not bad, palate is bitter and relatively strong.

Very good offering from Tin Roof. I've not been terribly impressed with their beers but this is very nice. Not a very noticeable aroma but the coloring is nigh perfect and has a great head. The hops are well balanced and has a great taste. I'll buy this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can poured to pint glass. Thick three finger head slowly dissipates to a thin persistent head, Off white in color with significant lacing. Hazy amber color. Roasty caramel malt aroma with a slight piney hops highlight. Caramel, toffe, and Roasty malts mingle together with a mild grapefruit tone on the backend. Hop bitterness balances out well and doesnt linger too long. Finishes clean and is intriguing enough to come back to. Cheers!
