3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can
A: spicy yeast and alcohol, toasty malts, American hops that are not well defined-muddled
T: spicy, malty more bready then toasty, again with muddled American hops
Overall the beer is worth a taste, nothing really wrong with it. A nice balance between the malts, yeast, and the bitterness.

Gift of John, gracias amigo. Poured at a great temperature and a mammoth, off white head that lasts for a while. Color was a slightly hazy amber. Aroma was hop, malt, grass. Flavor is malt, hop, slightly dry, grain. Body is full and decent. Finish is of good length and little sign of alcohol.

Vivant Flight draught. 28viii13. Potable yet underprofiled herbal IPA with some tentative Belgian yeast characteristics, but none of its complexity. Saved by traditional US hop aromas. Might benefit from more fermenting time in the tubes.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with low white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of belgian yeast, fruits, citrus, phenols, sugar, caramel. Taste is of caramel, bitterness, malt, fruits, belgian yeast, earth. Palate: Medium body. Soft-medium carbonation. Overall: Decent. Not really IPAish. Feels more like an amber ale with belgian yeast. Something is missing taste-wise.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Deep gold/amber body. Frothy white head, rapidly diminishing. Light aroma of spice and raw grain. Whisper of citrus and straw. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. I finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Either the Belgian yeast and American hops are clashing or the beer was slightly infected (likely), but there’s a vinegar aftertaste that is off-putting. Other than that, you’ll find clove and a light raw vegetable taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can from rayl101. Pours a clear copper color with off-white head and nice carbonation. Some lacing is left behind as the head falls. Aroma is carmel, some citrus, wood. Taste follow suit, but is not overly bitter. Its a bit thin which detracts from the beer although it does make it go down easily. Missing something.
