Fresh aroma of flowery hops and smooth caramel malts. Flavor of hop bitterness is quickly squashed by a full-palate fruit flavor, that finishes slightly thick and sticky with some dry hop flavor lingering in the background. Your mouth recognizes it just had a full flavored beer, but there’s surprisingly little to no heaviness left in the mouth.
Strong sweet aroma of fruit and a sweet treat. Flavor has a crisp bite from hops intermixed with malt and yeast, that gives saliva glands a kick and immediately becomes mouth-watering. Aftertaste is a mild one of hops in background with a bit of mild malt taste. Overall finish is very dry.
Nice clean aroma of bitter hops. Crisp hop bitterness on front of palate work a cleansing attack. Mike caramel malt hidden in background behind layers of hop flavor and bitterness. Lingering hip bitterness intermixed with a slight yeast twang. Superb.
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.
Nice aroma of dark malts mixed with a strong hop sweetness. String dark malt bite with a coffee like roastiness. Hop bitterness wipes the palate clean with a gusto, leaving the faintest remnants of sweet dark malts way in the background. Crisp and refreshing for such a dark beer.
Faint sweet hop aroma. Taste starts with a sharp hip edge, then turns really sweet with caramel malt, and finishes even sweeter almost like sugar and hops bitterness mixed together. Aftertaste is a lingering mild sweetness, but then a sourness creeps in at the end. Overall too harsh and sweet.
Got this as part of a Hoppy Christmas mix pack in 2021.
Great fresh hop aroma with hints of yeast, reminiscent of Huma Lupa. Flavor is sharp and sweet, with a slightly ragged edge on the back end, followed by strong caramel malt sweetness. Too sweet and bitter for my tastes.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
Craft beer and homebrew from a Michigan perspective.
