Sweet fruity aroma, mainly smells like hops. Taste is slightly cloying and sweet with a slightly bigger edge. This fades as a slow crescendo of peach flavor slowly builds. Finish is very nice and tasty, not juice-like or over fruity at all. Refreshing, and it hides its 8.9% ABV amazingly well.
Bottled 4/12/2022, tasted on 4/30/2022. Super fresh.
Bright flowery/citrus hop aroma. Clean taste of hops with a kind of bitterness that doesn’t have an edge to it. Overall smooth on the palate, but with lots of hop flavor. Minor hop bitterness in the aftertaste, even if the mouthfeel still is soft. Interesting combination that’s both sessionable and bitter at the same time.
Dark stout aroma. Slightly crisp flavor bite with a hint of the alcohol. Mainly tastes like a heavy stout, with hints of peanuts. Fades into an aftertaste that is a mix of dark malt roastiness and peanut flavor. Overall finishes fairly dry/clean.
Aroma of mild chocolate and fresh peanuts mixed in. Interesting flavorful taste that dips in and out, hinting at strong flavors, then suddenly disappearing. Seems like it’s gonna settle in on a mild roast coffee flavor, then that, too, fades away. Very flavorful, and the dry finish leaves it not too heavy/sweet for another drink.
Faint sweet aroma, not sure if malt, hops, or yeast. Taste is muffled hops flavor, with no bitter edge. Repeat taste is a bit more harsh with muddled mix of hops and yeast flavor. Slight lingering sweetness.
Unfortunately, this one is going to be a dumper. Packaged 12/22/2021, drank on 3/10/2022.
Aroma of slight caramel malt, maybe some hop or yeast sweetness. Taste is even across the palate and had a balanced malt taste that gives way to a smooth hop flavor. Aftertaste has a slight lingering bitterness.
Typical slightly sweet caramel malt aroma. Initial taste has a very slight twang, that fades and is replaced by a mix of malt and yeast sweetness. Finishes cleanly with just a mild caramel malt flavor in the background.
Canned 11/29/2021, tasted on 1/15/2022. Fresh, sweet hop aroma, very nice. Slightly sweet and puckering, but cleans off the palate quickly. Slight lingering hop fruitiness. Very nice and balanced. Full of fruity hop flavor, but no clinging aftertaste.
Sweet aroma of hops with a slight raw/green edge to it. Tastes like a bunch of raw hops, with a bit of yeast/malt sweetness in the background. The chaos subsides quickly and leaves a fairly clean lingering hop bitterness.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
