4.2/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

So this thing was available in 6-packs. Alrighty... I'll bit.

Enjoying bedside (On my table next to me after a long, yet reasonably pleasant day of Spring cleaning). Served in a DC Brau tulip.

A: About as amber as a beer can get with only the slightest semblance of a white head... nice frothy one, I guess.

S: Hop profile in spades, along with a Jolly Rancher-esque disposition overall. Melted cherry, to my mind.

T: Much like Stone's "Double Bastard," only quite a bit cheaper and a bit better. Hop and malt duet for sure, along with lots of IPA-esque greatness.

M: Carbonation was fine, no lacing left on the glass, and the sugar content was fine.

O: I felt like I was drinking Stone Double Bastard the whole time, but this one is a bit different, and infinitely cheaper.

Serving type: bottle
