3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #2215 - 2015.12.03 - Bottle #3 in the 2015 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with big C overtones - big citrus/pine presence., Taste is more of the same, dry, spicy hops and doughy malts dominating the flavour, with a dose of pink grapefruit sweetness sure to last. Lovely

(En fût à la source): Des malts richement protéinés et des clémentines très mûres. Généreux dans ses composantes mais brillamment équilibré.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar
Golden color, clean. A bit too caramelly, but not too dark, with correct bitterness level, some hop resins, not much hop quality; midway between old and new style IPA, nice Ale, not as fresh, and not what expected from a Colorado brewery.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a can. Sweet and floral aroma - somewhat like cherries. Light golden in colour with a frothy white head. Sharp bitter flavour with orange, lemon and apricot notes. Long bitter finish. Good IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is roasted malts, honey, clove, citrus and passion fruit. Taste is sweet roasted malts, caramel and slight apple to match the well balanced hop profile which finishes with a nice tartiness that is clove and passion fruit. Appearance is a lightly hazy orange with light sediment in suspension.

2015 craft beer advent. Pours cloudy orangey, with moderate-low carbonation. A nice mild hoppiness that isn't harsh on the palate. My kind of ipa.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. (no damn fruity metric used here! ’Merica! Okay, only joshing...) single can, probably from a Christmas sampler case, served in a pint glass. Pours a moderately hazy orangey-straw hue with streams of fine carbonation, with a smooth white head and copious sudsy lace. Loads of fresh citrus, with prevailing lemon, and a certain grassiness on the nose; likewise on the tongue, with hints of pine. A strong and slightly burny astringency/bitterness. Thin-bodied, clean-finishing. Another good IPA for the list, but needing some clawback on that aforementioned "zing".

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I really liked this. Fruity, sticky and resinous with light pine and a nice balance of toasted caramel malts and sticky hops. Fresh, a bit tropical and tons of caramel and resin notes.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, craft beer advent calendar 2015. Hazy orange gold, off white head. Aroma has citrus and pine, sweet malts. Piney hops prevail on the palate, sweet malts, over-carbonated body with a slight sour note in the bitter finish. A bit too gassy for me.

Grand Junction, CO - College Liquors - 12 oz can. Dark copper pour, frothy off-white head. Aroma has lots of homebrew funkiness with too much crystal malt. Some citrus bitterness, ripening vegetables, a touch of spearmint. Thick enough mouthfeel.
