Pours a dark reddish brown color with a thick and creamy head that did a superb job of clinging to the sides of the glass while drinking. The aroma, which is quite strong, is dominated by hops and toasted grains with hints of toffee and caramel. The flavor is a complex combination of a malty sweetness and a hoppy bitterness with notes of citrus. It’s very creamy in the mouth and goes down smoothly. A very good brew with a nice price of $3.69 for a 22oz bottle.

Probably one of the best of its ilk. Delicious all the way around from the hops on top to the sweet malt and the heady alcohol. Sort of a HopDevil on steroids. An awesome beer and thanks again to Shoreline beverage for their selection. Gots to get me some mo!

Pours a dark reddish brown with a yellow tinted two finger head. The smell is a perfect balance between the hops and the sweet beady malt. Caramel, orange, vanilla, candy. The flavor is also a perfect balance. It's bitter, very bitter, but there is also a nutty sweetness. It's hard to honestly review this beer as it has been an old standard of mine. The First Craft Beer I Ever had.
