Poured from a 12oz bottle into a glass mug.

Look is a hazy brown orange with little to no head.

Very light on aroma maybe a slight molasses coming through.

Taste initially is super sweet, but a grassy bitterness balances it out at the end.

Enjoyed on the porch with a friend.

Great copper color. Sediment. Sudsy head turned creamy. Retained well. A sweet malt taste with a hop bite on the finish. Most notably it's thick and chewy with a great mouthfeel. Quite good!

Quite an ale! Dark caramel color upon pouring; lovely head of white foam at the top. Sweet initial taste with the hoppy bite at the end. Definitely will search this out again. A very enjoyable double pale ale.

Dark amber color and cloudy. Initial two-finger head settles quickly but retains an eighth of inch of bubbles. Streaky lace.

Rich, sweet caramel aroma with a very light bittering hop touch.

Clean and malty initially. Notes of white-bread toast, lightly carmelized sugar and a bit of alcohol warmth. The hop is definitely low, particularly for the style. In fact, the aftertaste is predominately malt based. Rich body with a decent carbonation level. This is so close to being a superior beer, but it was under-hopped making it a clear miss.

Pours a uniquely attractive mottled light colored head. The brew itself is a delicious hazy amber color. I found a slight floral aroma with a hint of citrus. Malty to the taste and pleasantly light on the hops. I would certainly enjoy drinking this brew again.

Pours hazy, copper in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is caramel, toffee, cracker, cherry, and herbal hops that show in the finish. Sweet with a dry bitter finish, medium-heavy bodied, with moderate carbonation. Amazing malt bomb. Sweet but not cloyingly so. Best beer from RJ Rockers that I have had so far. Really glad I got multiples of this one.
