Deep orange and copper colored. Sweet caramel and maple mixed with a tart hop and leafy Marzen/Vienna aroma and flavor.. this one is pretty good. Roasted nut and toffee flavors, solid bitterness... definitly resembles other EPAs Iíve had.

Had while I was fishing in MT this summer. Soft mouthfeel. Went well with a sandwich I was having that was mildly spicey. Good mix of hops and malt.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle-pours a medium orange hue with rocky off-white head. aroma of toasty malts, caramel malts, piney and earthy hops with a touch of brown sugar. I like that! Flavors are malty, earthy hops, cinammon and slighty dry piney finish that is very long. This beer has a decently round palate but has a slightly astringent finish. a decent mix between an EPA and APA IMO.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12.5 oz aluminum bottle: amber bronze - minimal patchy head decent dry grain/caramel aroma with a light touch of piney hop cones...overly fizzy palate with strong metallic notes over subdued bitter hops and a slim malt sourness. I must say that my expectations were pretty low with this one, and I found it to be pretty drinkable with those expectations...

Another beer sold in an aluminum bottle!
Light all around, in color, taste, freshness. Somewhat grainy and harsh at first sip, metallic. Some hops at the finish donít save this from being poured down the drain!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep caramel color w/ an off white head. Aroma of toasted bread and roasted malt. Nice bitterness and toasted malt flavor. Good body. malt flavors and bitterness. Good balance, more of an English pale ale than an hoppy west coast American pale ale.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle Pours a medium reddish copper with very little head or lacing. No real aromas cme through but faint grain and hopps. Earlier review mentioned "hampster cage"...yeah OK...kind of. Taste is dominated by a nice strong hoppy tang and a little malt.
Finish is hopps and a woddy slant. Clean and fresh though as well.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice deep amber color with small head. Aroma of hops with a hint of roast. Flavors that lean towards the citrus, but just enough malt to let you know its there.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very dark amber, borderline brown color, with little head. After smelling it for quite a while, trying to place that aroma, the only thing I could conjure up was a hamsterís cage. Not what Iím looking for from a beer. The taste was fairly malty and woody, but the wood wasnít a normal beer or whisky wood. I think it might have been cedar. Again, not what Iím looking for. Different, but perhaps a bit too different.
