2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured into a shaker; pours a nice shade of copper with a small sudsy head and no real carbonation; a little malt to the nose...but not much else; some grassy hops to start...and end. This taste doesnít develop at all. Mouthfeel is decent which makes it a passable summer/grilling/lawnmower beer.

Backlog. 12 oz via bottle. Aroma and flavor of citrus, pine and light hop resin. Crisp and pretty easy to drink. Not bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Julie brought from Illinois. Pours orange/copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is citrus and fruit. Med body, almost. Flavor is lightly roasty caramel, and some fruity/earthy hop. It is bitter. Might have been a big deal in 1985.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
A- Citrus, hoppy, watery, pine.
A- Amber color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Hoppy, bitter, unbalanced, subtle citrus, pine.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish.
O- I would be embarrassed to sell this beer under my name. Just a poor IPA that is very unbalanced and lacks flavor and is nothing but bitter water.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep amber color with a thick, creamy off-white head. The pillowy head dampens the aroma, but thereís a bit of caramel and earthiness coming through, along with some floral notes. Taste is not great. Starts out more like an amber with a sweetness thatís appealing, but then a harsh, bitter flavor comes to the fore. Itís not a subtle mix of sweet and bitter. Rather, the bitter just clobbers the malt. The finish isnít bad, but overall itís too much like average home brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle brought back from the midwest. Poured a clear amber color with a medium white head. Aroma was heavy hop notes - earthy character, some light pine. Flavor was earthy hops, huge malt notes, caramel. A touch more malty than Iíd have liked, but it was pretty clean and easy to drink in the end.

If you have distributors with focus on "craft" brands, without all the mainstream brands, and distributors who actually know beer and care about the quality, you sell more beer. Very simple.
