2.78/5  rDev -19%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle. It pours a moderate golden color with a 2-finger ivory head of large bubbles that falls fairly fast to a finger over top. Clarity is good, and there is a steady and strong carbonation in the beer. The aroma is butterscotch, fruity eter, and caramel sweetness from the malt, The butter is dominant in this one and I'm not finding any real hop presence. The flavor is again dominated with butterscotch and caramel sweetness, with a mild bitterness that comes through despite a clear lack of real hop flavor. Moutfeel is on the thin side of moderate with a solid moderate carbonation in there as well. I find the ringwood yeast in this one detracts from the beer by dominating it with buter and butterscotch in both flavor and aroma. I would not have this one again for that reason.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours light gold, hazy, thick white foam. Heavy at times. Sticks everywhere=. Caramel malty nose with a grassy hint. Light malt taste, tiny hop bitter. Builds as the beer warms. Overall on the lighter side, but still tasty.

3.2/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-Cloudy orange, two finger head, some carbonation.

S-Dirt, pine but not in a good way.

T-Same dirt, pine and grass notes but there is something off putting in there. A tad bit of bitterness. Malt is there, some caramel, not balanced. Possibly metallic?

M-Medium bodied, some carbonation

O-The balance ins't there, the dirt and pine are off as well. An IPA not worth seeking out.
