3.65/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Dark copper color, poured with about 1/2 inch head, dissipated relatively quickly.

Smell - A bit of a bread-y nose, perhaps even a bit of smokiness.

Taste - Malty up front, slightly sweet, maybe even a little bit smokey up front, finishes nicely on the back end with the slightest hop kick. Well balanced flavor.

Mouthfeel - Great carbonation, relatively light body, but doesn't feel thin at all.

Overall - A solid offering I would definitely purchase again. I've heard great things about their IPAs, and hope to try them in a bottle or can in the near future.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A dark copper-brown color with a proper off-white layer of suds lining the top and leaving a nice trail of lacing. The aroma offers vinegar malt and brown sugar with leafy hop edges. Not bad for the style. The flavor follows the introductory smell with tart apple cider vinegar and caramel brown bread with a grassy hop bite. It's medium bodied at best and sports a lively, tingly carbonation that keeps the feel pretty peppery. Not bad.

Serving type: growler
