4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, pine and grapefruit peel for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with notes of dried cherry, wood and faint solvent. Head is average size, frothy, off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy copper. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a lively carbonation and a lightly alcoholic and dry finish. An excellent IPA, the flavor could’ve been a bit more complex but it has one of the best aromas around.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The color to this beer was perfect for a CA Common/Steam; a nice deep amber/red with a nice tan head. Head didn’t retain very long and the lacing was fairly good; however, the edges of the glass had a constant supply of bubbles that when the sun hit them sparkled an array colors (pretty cool). Aroma was muted hops and muted caramel sweetness and not much else. Taste was pretty good; think Anchor Steam mixed with Stone Levitation. Mouthfeel was crisp and light considering the style which made it refreshing for the pool side atmosphere. Enjoyable brew, but even at $6.99 I probably wouldn’t give it another try.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a brilliantly clear deep reddish brown with a good sized creamy off white head that shows moderate retention and lace. Smell of caramel and brown bread with a woody spicy minty hoppy aroma. The flavor is moderate brown sugary maltiness with a bit of woody earthy minty hop flavor. low to moderate hop bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Decent brew, flavorful, but a bit on the dull side. I’d like a bit more hop all around, but I had no problem imbibing of this one.
