Poured a coppery caramel colour with quite a bit of suspended sediment, smell has caramel malts but also a lot of piney and ripe tropical fruit, taste is biscuity with a coating piney resiny and sappy character, standard carbonation adva good drinkability. Quite a flavourful dipa and now I felt was a bit high on the caramel but managed I make it work decently well, quite bitter with a rolling spice kick to it.

2.66/5  rDev -26.9%

Undated bomber at 45 degrees into goblet; twist off cap!
Extremely faint aroma of fruity hops
Head initially < 1 cm, off white, frothy; rapidly diminishing to a partial layer approximately 1.5 mm thick
No lacing
Body is medium orange, hazy: a couple of large lumps fell into the glass when poured
Flavor begins slightly bitter with no discernable taste. This ends with a slight astringency. No malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation.

This is not a good beer. It is contract-brewed in Wilkes-Barre, PA, possibly at The Lion. There is virtually no hoppiness nor any other flavor. The appearance and the aroma are both sub-par; only the palate is as expected. IMHO, pass this one by.
