3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma is primarly floral and citrusy. A dark reddish amber pour with a mostly lasting tan head and loads of sticky lacing. The taste is hoppy (piney - citrusy) up front with malts playing second fiddle. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, ok, but too hops forward for my taste. Having said that, this would extremely pleasing on a HOT Texas afternoon.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Comes out of the growler a clear mahogany with a fairly thick golden-buff head. Fruity, malty aroma is fairly strong and tempting. Flavor has a malty core with fruity and hoppy notes and a tinny snippet. Texture is smooth, but not too firm or fizzy. Still, a good catch.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This sort of splits the difference between an APA and an English pale. It has a good depth of malt character with some nice toasty and nutty notes. The hop character is nice too--piney and a bit herbal and earthy--but I feel it distracts from the malts or maybe vice versa. It is not a bad beer but it seems to compete against itself.

Smell is funky stale red ale malt. I should probably try it again not at Stanley’s farmhouse where the beers all taste like jester king funk.
