3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a lighter amber with eggshell head. Smells of mild grass and honey. Flavor is the same, sweet malt bordering on honey with considerable grassy hops flavor, much more flavor than bitterness with the hops. Not light bodied, but easy drinking nonetheless. Good.

Served on draft at the Gettysburg location. Pours a clear copper color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of leafy and citrus hops. The taste is bitter, leafy hops with a bit of citrus. Medium bodied. All hops, no balance.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange/amber pour with watery head and lace. Sweet caramel and very light citrus hops. Light sweet caramel malt with a light medium resiny bitter. Watery and thin but drinkable. Weak to the style though.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour is cloudy amber with 2 inches of off-white head. Nose is very, very light malt and hop, and perhaps the slightest presence of summer fruit. Taste is bitter with the lightest touch of fruit. Not really much to say about this one ... its better than bud or miller products!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was a pleasant surprise. Not a copy of a classic like Sierra Nevada pale, more like a mini-Victory hop devil. Sweet amber roast malts and citrus American hops in the nose. Beautiful clear amber body, small white head, fantastic lacing, more like cask than draft. Lower alcohol, less malt, less hops than the Hop Devil it resembles visually. Good balance. Bonus points for low alcohol.
