3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a growler brought to me by jcwattsrugger. Pours a dark orange with a one finger thick off white head. Some lace. Strong citrus aroma backed by biscuity malt. Lots of grapefruit and pine resin flavor, than a nice caramel sweet finish. Medium bodied. Easy to drink and delicious.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Full pint of this beer at the brewpub. Poured a slightly hazy, but mostly clear copper color with a medium sized lasting white head. Aroma was hoppy, but not overtly hoppy. This was pretty enjoyable. Touch of citrus notes, malt balance.

Just shy of an IPA, very refreshing on a hot day. Strong hop aroma with a crisp carbonated palate. Has a brief bitter aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A slightly hoppier version of their pale ale. Nice malt aroma with some grass and bread. The flavor starts with a sweet malt base followed by a nice hop finish. Dry and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub in Moline. Good citrus herb hop, good balance, and nice bold flavors. Minimal pillowy head on the cloudy, burnt orange pour. The nose is on the lighter side and is slightly soapy. Aroma is fruity in general with notes of melon fruit, citrus, light tropical fruits, apples, and cereal grains. The body is well bittered, slightly chewy, and decently balanced. More caramels and light toasty cereal grains come through in the more complex flavor. Then big, bitter, chewy citrus fruit, and thick herbal come through. Lingers sticky pine and herb. This was solid.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a small head and not a lot of lace to speak of on the glass.
The aroma is fairly mild, at first itís got sort of a dirty water character but that thankfully fades leaving a clean maltiness and a little bit of citrus.
The flavor has a great toasty malt character, is mildly sweet but has a good deal of fruit forward hoppiness. Itís straightforward but works really nicely,
