3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow. Somewhat floral aroma, and a flavor that offers some curious notes later, including some citrus but also some spices, like juniper and light licorice. A little astringent as it went on. Not noticeable in the flavor, but the 6.2% was apparent in the effect it had. Slightly richer, more oily body, than expected. O.k. but perhaps a bit flawed. Bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clean orange amber. Medium white head, lasting with some lace. Aroma has nice balance - Caramel, citrus, mango; good but not standout. Flavor much the same. Very bitter - a bit too sharp. Theres some sweetness there as well. A good enough beer but the bitterness of the long finish overstays its welcome.

Orange/tan pour, 1 inch white head. Nose is mint and subtle pine. Middle is alcohol, orange sherbert, passion fruit. Finish is sour grapefruit. Interesting.

12 oz. can. Pours orange amber with a thin off white head that dissipates to a wispy film. Aroma has bitter dry piny hops that also show earthiness. Taste is more bitter dry earthy piny hops some sweet floral grain and a lingering fruit floral flavor. Palate is thin and dry. For 9.99 a 12 pack this shit rocks!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from beerboxer. Pours light amber gold with a creamy white head. Aroma seems earthy. Med body. Foamy carb. Flavor seems very hoppy, but itís earthy hop. Mild hop burn. Itís sort of chewy. Malt backbone exists, but itís not exactly caramel. Lots of bitter on the tongue sides. Personally, I think this ale deserves a higher rating than it has garnered. Itís laid back, but there seems to be lots of ingredients - not a cheaply brewed ale. Finishes dry, bitter and satisfying - hop wise.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by beerboxer. Pours clear blonde with a modest off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with a dry bitter finish. A bit watery but otherwise, pretty good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bitterness is out of balance, hop expression is insufficient and off flavor mars appeal slightly.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 6-9-13. Fresh, hoppy aroma features tonic water, seltzer, and lime scents. Nice but simple smell. Pours an orange-tinged deep gold with a large amount of fluffy, off-white head. Liquid is clear with some effervescence. Produces good lacing. Good-looking beer. Dry taste features a mineral water element. Simple flavor but pretty good. Light to medium body. Lively and soft in the palate. Probably more enjoyable than this score implies, but too simple (i.e., lacks the complexity of a standout brew).
