3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice amber with medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma strong of floral and citrus hops, nice sweet malt, and a bit of caramel and vanilla. Flavor matches well with a deep bitterness that is quite nice on the palate. Solid beer.

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a hazy orange to amber hue with a thin, quickly dissipating head. A light malty hop aroma with a hint of spice. Bitter taste of malt, caramel, and pine.

12 oz bottle from TC Craft. Dark golden pour with a nice big white head and excellent lacing. Aroma and flavor are malty and hoppy, very nicely balanced. Finish has a nice hoppy bite.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nutty caramel, pine, floral hops. Light fruit and grains with hints of citrus. Felt a bit light in the body, and not enough carbonation to clean out the aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep copper, very full head. Takes time to settle down, lots of lingering foam. Aroma is toasty and caramel malts with some resinous hops. Lower carbonation, just a hint of caramelly sweetness followed by a solid but moderate bittering. This is a nice bitter amber (I certainly wouldn’t call this a pale ale by any definition) that drinks easy while still having a lot of flavor.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle to pint. Pours cloudy iced tea color, dissipating off white head. Aroma of pine, fig, grass, raisin. Taste of same with finish of burnt toast and biscuit. Finish is as bitter and dry as they claim.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle - Pours orange with a bubbly white head. A bit floral hoppy, but doesn’t live up to the description. There must not be any other hoppy beers in Redwood County. I doubt there are any redwoods, either.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Winterfest. From notes. Double Dry hopped cask version. Pours a hazy gold, with minimal head and decent lacing. Can see the hop resins in there...great looking beer. Aroma is a big punch of hops. Flavor is much the same, with a bit of toffee, but unbalanced hop bitterness throughout. A nice, hop forward IPA that could use a bit more balance.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle pour. copper in color with a thin off white head. aroma is of caramel malt and spicy hops. on the lighter side of medium bodied. flavor is kind if weak, more malty than hoppy. thought it’d bring a little more to the table from the appearance/aroma. not a bad brew by any means.
