3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a red/orange cloudy with very effervescent head almost like a soda. Quickly dissipates with no lacing. Pine and resinous hops. Cereal and toasted malt flavors that accompany the hops. Primarily a medium bitter taste that is long lasting but smooth in it’s finish. Medium bodied, slightly sticky on the palate with perhaps a little too much carbonation. Overall, I think it has a good taste although I think he has a little too much with carbonation. Favors an IPA.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2013 Pours cloudy brunt orange with of white head. Aroma is almost gin like, piney and with some grainy bread. The taste is big barley grain and a solid hop bite of earthy nature and a little bit of spice. It has a dark amber alt bier taste under it all and a touch sugary, but the after taste is much more full and with a round balance if not straying to the hop side. Very enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not impressed... as with most all boulevard beers. Zero aroma... common to boulevard... generic flavor... searching for what this is. Light cinammon flavor... but using my imagination... How are these guys everywhere?

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Tawny copper amber brew with huge head, creamy head that lasts and lasts. Aroma dominated by spicey and floral hops. Taste has a hint of sweeter malts at the start with spice and lightly citrus hops melding in, finishing with a spice and lingeirng but light bitter. Very nice. Palate is thin but enhanced by active but soft carbonation. Overall, a really nice brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an overly-carbonated head on a dark amber ale, have to stop mid-pour. Cream head lasts for a long time. Notable hops aroma. Spicy hops taste on a decently thicker and very bubbly consistency. Slightly dry finish with not unpleasant bitter hops aftertaste.
