3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep dark gold clear pour from bottle with a nice lasting off white froth of suds. Sweet caramel earthy bread aroma, mostly all grains in the nose with just a hint of citrus. Smooth easy going drinkability, it has small doses of orange citrus and an herbal tingle but mostly rides out a grain based path. Some bitterness in the finish, small amount of citrus again with some grass and sweetness of pale malts. Nice brew, soft and easy going.

Purchased at a random liquor store in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed at home while watching a Bears game on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Appearance is a bright amber gold, moderately cloudy, rich white head that lightly laces to the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, rich in a variety of hops as well, kind of smells somewhere between a barley wine and a pale ale, rather unique. Taste goes down with a moderate thickness, nice hop profile, nice bitterness as well. Pretty good stuff.

Pours copper brown with a small while head. The aroma is light citrus hops and vegetables. The taste itís crisp and clean, a little bitter and unfortunately a little metallic. Itís an ok beer but unfortunately the metallic thing is ruining it for me.

Amber color, white head. Aroma of pines, citrus, herbs and bread. Very earthy. Taste is citrus, malts, fruits. A very balanced beer. I like the bitterness, not too much, not too less.

Had while on an Alaskan cruise. This one was probably my favorite of the brewery of what I had. A nice hop flavor. Definitely the one I got the most while on the ship.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Surprisingly really good and fresh. It had a strong piney and floral aroma. The color was of cider with a little bit of haze and a white head. Good crisp palate that matched the high carbonation. The citrus and grapefruit hop flavors hit me first with a slightly grainy malt backbone. A refreshing beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light amber with high rocky head. Lots of sticky lacing and a nice piney hoppy aroma, with a little malt in the background. Taste is full on astringent hops which lingers on the palate. Bitter but enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with refreshing floral hops, classic. In mouth, a dry crisp biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, a bit light but good for summer. On tap at Downtown Brew fest LV 2013.
