3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’ve had this beer twice now and find it to be a new favorite. It has a buttery caramel type nose. I didn’t get a large foamy head as others have reported...mine had a small head. It was a cloudy orange color. The taste was a mixture of malty caramel and oranges. A really unique and pleasant beer. The one thing I disliked about this beer was the 6 pack carrier. It was like carrying a bowling ball and once you’ve opened it, you don’t have anything to return your beer in. I dislike these carriers and normally pass on these beers for that reason.

A cloudy amber colored beer, the head large, and foamey, the lace is generous, both are light beige in color. Nose is malt sweet, slightly floral, buttery and a bit or hint of citrus. Begins sweet, the top light, the finish is dry, acidic, well hopped and quite pleasing to the palate. Ranks #481 on my current 1000 beer master list.

A good IPA. nice yellow copper color. the hops hit with the lingering dry bitterness of how i want an IPA. All around a good beer i’ll definately pickup again.

Clear, deep golden/amber. Nice soapy head and decent lace. Nose is full of perfumy hops and hints of soft fruit. ALmost medium bodied, sharp hop bite, just enough maltiness to call it balanced, hops linger nicely. The malt softness gives this a very refined mellowness. Pretty damn good.

Lingering bitterness, chewy malt and enough complexity to keep it all going.
