Price: $4.99
Purchased: Aug. 26, 2014
Consumed: Sept. 3, 2014
Misc.: Bottled April 24, 2014

Poured a mahogany opaque color with 6-to-7 fingers of khaki tan head. A foamy Port pour? You don’t say. Sporadic foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Great retention. (Sight - 3.85)

Smelled caramel malts, wet Cascade hops, rye, toffee, buttery malts, roasty malts, faint chocolate, citrus hops, pine, wet soapy malts and floral hops. (Smell - 3.68)

Tasted a bit better than the nose. Earthy rye hops, roasty caramel, wet Cascade, light chocolate (still), soapy pine, honey, floral hops, citrus hops, sweetened iced tea and lime zest. (Taste - 4.00)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. (Feel - 4.18)

A nice tasty double amber. Would have it again for sure. (Overall - 3.98)

Cloudy, reddish dark amber color. Great ring lace from a modest head.

Pleasant fresh floral hop aroma.

Hoppy red with a yeasty base. In short, the toasty malt takes a back seat. Very spritzy. Mild bitter aftertaste.

Pour is a muddied burnt orange with an off-white frothiness that stays awhile.

Aroma is scintillating caramels and hop. Malt is much more prominent edging on Barleywine territory.

Taste has a decent hop bite followed by a candied sweetness. Alcohol has a noticeable contributing factor.

Mouthfeel has a creamy texture and the mouth is overcome in the onset but wanes quickly. More so a full bodied beer.

I'm personally not digging the boozy sugary aspects, but hey that's me. Has the imperial appeal that does have its fan base. Kinda reminds me of Palate Wrecker in some way. Nice abv that toasts this overall experience. Decent brew nonetheless.

A translucent copper colored beer with a red head, like my girlfriend. The aroma is sweet-hop tied to some grassy flaves. The overall palette is somewhat malty, but still with strong notes of hops. The alcohol % is a plus. Subtle bitterness derived from the English Challenger hops with desired qualities from the Crystal Malt give it a 'must buy more' note on the white board. But folks, basically its a Belgian golden ale brewed with lots of hops, and heard that it was created for the brewers' wedding celebration. I live on the coast near great white sharks, and this beer has nothing to do with all that, except the hint of blood.
