3.99/5 rDev +2.6%
A: The beer is clear reddish amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles in the center and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: The smell is a little sweet and has aromas of toasted malts along with hints of pine resin hops.
T: Following the smell, the taste has flavors of toasted malts along with notes of tea leaves and hints of herbal hops. There's slight bits of sweetness but also hints of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and is a very good representation of the style. I would definitely try this again.

Pours hazed lobstah red.
The smell is hoppy with citric/tropical fruits and pine. Plenty of "red" caramel-ish malt backs it up.
The taste is of sweet toffee/caramel with mild toasted bread. Musty/citric/piney hops weave in and out. It has a strong malty backbone with balancing hops in the finish. Alcohol is nicely incorporated with just a hint of pepper. Some residual sweetness lingers on the lips.
It hits full-bodied, without being thick. It has medium carbonation.
This is a wicked good beeah! Hoppy, malty, tasty - great smell! Too bad it doesn't come in a six pack. Very enjoyable and dangerously drinkable!

Small head but it leaves an excellent blanket of lace. The color is dark amber with lots of haze.
Upfront I get evergreen smelling hop. There's a bit of toasted malt in the background.
Toasty and very dry malt. Thick dark brown toast just shy of being burnt. Strong bitter hop kick--straight out bitterness without other "notes". Full bodied and lowly carbonated. Nearly astringent.

Served on-tap at Bukowski Tavern in Boston, MA
A: Pours a clear deep garnet red in color with some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some copper + amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall beige head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted and caramel malts along with some lighter notes of grassy hops.
T: Similar to the smell, this beer is pretty much all malts without being too sweet - I tasted flavors of toasted and caramel malts. Very light flavors of grassy hops that balance out the sweetness from the malts. Light amounts of bitterness which fade quickly.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Enjoyable but a little strong at 8% ABV to be called easy drinking or sessionable - the alcohol is pretty well hidden. First beer from this brewery and it was likely a good one to start off (saw a bunch of different places in Boston that had an offering from them on tap).

Pours a three-finger cream/beige head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Pine/resin nose and flavor is pine hops and caramel, light bitter aftertaste, higher ABV is hidden. $7.20 for a 220z bottle from a Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, ME.

Semi hazed dull orange color with about 2 fingers of off white head with an orange tinge. Nice hoppy nose of citrus fruits, tangerines covered in sticky caramel drizzle.
Thick body with initial sweetness but the beer avoids being sticky. Carbonation is brisk but doesn't break the body up too much. Sweet candied tropical fruits up front. Malty sweetness hits the mid palate. Faint bitterness to balance everything, lingering cereal grain flavors along win a touch of tobacco make de a unique, tasty and refreshing beer that brings you to thoughts of a Hawaiian luau at sunset. Different in a good way with some other hidden complexities, burnt sugars, tangerines, faintly flowery. A complex beer with lots of different flavors that all work together, it's also just nice to sip and enjoy it.
