Live review of a 12 oz bottle.
A: Poured a clear dark amber with a one-finger creamy head that slowly died to a good film and big collar with good lacing.
S: Pine with citrus rind hops, sweet caramel malt with a slight biscuit character, some earthy raisin and brown sugar. Good.
T: Starts off creamy and malty and then moves to hoppy and almost crisp. The malt is a blend of caramel, brown sugar, and figs with a slight bready yeast character, while the hops come off as slightly piney over the earthy, almost floral citrus flowers that are a bit like fresh white grapes on the lingering finish. Slight alcohol comes off as a gin-and-juice.
M: Creamy and frothy to an almost crisp finish.
D: Good.

3.3/5  rDev -17.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz. bottle dated 2/7/2014

A: Pours a light amber color. ive seen many beers this color and even darker classified as IPA. Really good 2" head that settles to about 1/4 inch and stays. Good lacing. Appearance is the best part of this beer.

S: Mostly caramel malt and some pine. Maybe a hint of citrus. Its not very complex or super inviting, really.

T: Mostly caramel/bread with pine. Kind of has an off bitterness that doesnt seem balanced or the kind of bitterness I like in a hoppy beer (I love bitterness in hoppy beers, btw). Bitterness stays on my tongue after each sip.

M: Light-Medium body. Kind of a harsh carbonation.

O: Meh. Probably wouldnt have again.
