      Score: 18 points
      Appearance (3)
      Extremely lively pour! When it's finally in the glass, the beer is a beautiful, brilliant, dark red under a massive dense head that you could probably walk across.
      Aroma (4)
      Grassy, spicy, raisiny. Clean dark-toasty malt.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Medium body, fizzy. Dark, toasty malt. Nicely fruity, mild bananas and raisins. Dark caramel. Grassy, very low bitterness. Lingering toasty malt finish with just a hint of alcohol.
      Overall Impression (2)
      Real good beer.

      Package: canned
      Place: Northbound Liquor Store, Elk River MN
      Score: 15 points
      Appearance (3)
      Translucently hazy, amber color. Massive head.
      Aroma (3½)
      Huge fresh citrusy hops. Tangerine juice.
      Mouthfeel (7)
      Intensely hoppy, fruity...dare I say juicy? Medium body, slick texture from all the haze. Sweet background but not all that malty. Fairly bitter, but it doesn't last.
      Overall Impression (1½)
      It's all about the "juiciness", with nothing else for balance.
