4.14/5 rDev +7.3%

A: Pours an opaque mahogany with a thin mocha head.
S: Raspberry, some citrus hop character, a touch of sweet, caramelized malt in the nose. Very pleasant.
T: Raspberry comes out immediately, with some bitter orange that turns sweet toward the finish, where the sweet malty backbone arises, but only briefly, before smoothing out and blending with all the other flavors in the aftertaste.
M: Medium bodied and smooth.
O: A very well balanced, surprisingly fruity scotch ale. Definitely recommended. This is a great brewery and a very good beer.

4.16/5 rDev +7.8%

It pours a clear copper with 1 finger head of foam with some good lacing.
I'm getting somewhat of a hoppy aroma followed some fruity sweetness. Some caramel adds some sweet but I'm kind of surprised that hoppy is the first thing I noticed.
Caramel and brown sugar is the main flavours I get from the first few sips. Some kind of berry taste there that doesn't add much...maybe a slight tartness. It finishes on the lightly bitter side.
This is almost full bodied with just the right amount of carbonation.
Overall, I'm liking this Scotch Ale more than I like most; it is a tough style for me to get in to.
Cheers, Big Sky!

Served in a tulip.
A: Pours a ruby amber color with a short tan head that dissipates fast leaving a small remnant tan ring around the edges of the glass, minimal lacing
S: Slight bitter/sour aroma, tangy, wheat, brown sugars, raspberries, orange peels, caramel, toffee, all around sweetness with hints of some bitterness.
T: Quite sweet, wheat, cooked brown sugars, vanilla, malts, barley, hints of fruit, oranges
M: Medium bodied with medium amounts of carbonation, good balance
O: This was good overall, I normally never get the chance to have a scotch ale and I bought this on a whim and was glad I did so. Recommended.
