4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tastes like a fuller bodied and heavier hopped version of the local pale ale by Boulevard. I enjoyed it a lot.

Caramel, resin, peach aromas. khaki head on clear amber. good blance of weight and fizz in the moth, aromatic. Hops win the the tussle just barely, with some pine, okay tang, a slightly overcooked caramel. balanced bitter finish.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice beer! Has a woody barleywine aroma to start. Really awesome color. Super clean and crystal clear with a beautiful frothy head. Itís like barleywine light. Bitter caramel and toasty. It has a unique enticing bitter flavor. You know how some beers make you think about pussy? This beer has that quality. Sex in a glass. Itís that aroma.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy reddish amber with a short lived head. Aroma is dominated by hops with a little soapiness. Flavor is an excellent balance of floral hops and roasted malts. Very easy to drink. Would make a superb session beer...but watch out for the ABV! This would be great with spicy Indian or South American foods to mellow out the heat. Cheers!

hazy copper with a thin fizzy head that quickly ends. Rich caramel aroma with moderate hop bitterness. The alcohol is not hidden very well towards the end. dry finish.

Spicy hops and a little caramel malt on the nose. Taste is interesting cuz itís not too bitter and not too sweet therefore making it taste like it canít make itís mind up. Theres a slight sourness. Spicy hops and Slight citrus hop followed by a some malt and a little earthiness. A bit a of bread and yeast flavour too. Its nice and quite interesting but I donít think Iíll bother getting myself another anytime soon.

Nice and crisp with a bit of a toasty bite. Not sweet, but not terribly bitter either...quite smooth in fact. Average carbonation and a fairly abrupt finish.
