4.1/5 rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Deep copper color with a thin head that laces well down the glass.
Fruity, chocolatey nose with notes of what I believe to be Simcoe and perhaps Amarillo hops. Bubblegum whaffs, too. Complex, but inviting.
Well-balanced flavors of chocolate, dark fruits, toffee/caramel and mildly bitter hops on the finish.
Smooth, appropriately carbonated mouthfeel. Has a certain crispness to it at this point in its young life.
Drinks very well for its size. Everything is in place here and I'd imagine some deliberate aging will bring on some further toffee/caramel tones that will certainly be welcomed. The hop character keeps this beer particularly interesting and also increases drinkability.

a - poured a two-fingers thick creamy tan head into a snifter that left great lacing and a thick sheet throughout. the body was a bright mahogany color.
s - caramel and toffee with some piney hops underneath.
t - big malty flavors with a hint of hops. a little heat in the finish.
m - bubbly and dry.
o - had some high points but overall it seemed a little conflicted.

Type: ~14 oz on tap
From: Upland in Bloomington IN
Appearance: reddish brown and almost clear. small off white head that left a lacing.
Smell:sweet sweet malts. and hops
Taste: sweet malts and somewhat piney hops. I don't like the balance or the hops in this one
Mouthfeel: thicker and good but leaves that bad hop taste lingering.
Overall: not a big fan of this one. the hop and malt flavors don't do very well together
Serving type: on-tap
