3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. Floral and spicy hops, biscuit and roasted malt notes make up the aroma. Peppery, spicy hops up front lead into a touch of caramel malt. Smooth toffee and more robust roasted malt in the mid-palate give it a full-bodied feel, with floral hops joining the sweeter malt flavours in the finish. This is a pleasant ale, with enough robust malt body to support its hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Initial strong hop aroma fades to a starchy caramel. Dark amber orange, still. Overall this beer is on the sweet side yet features a very dry bitter middle. Has weight and texture of a stronger beer, papery almost. Okay amber ale, as I say they all are.

Taster on the island. Pours amber (weird?) with khaki head. Aroma is grassy hops, caramel and oranges. Taste is more of that but with more grassiness to it. Caramel helps a lot.

Balanced, nice to drink. A little bit sweet and very refreshing. A little bit sparkling.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Pours a dark orange amber. Aroma is fruity malts, earthy grains. Some bitterness and yes, a bit sweet... but more dirty, earth flavors coming through than I’d care for.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cerveja leve para uma ale, é aromatizada e o sabor não deixa aquele amargo no fim. Boa no geral.

on draft @ Hamilton’s. Was hoping for more of a hop-forward but with pronounced malt flavor ale, and although this one ticked a number of boxes, the overall flavor and character of this beer is unbalanced and too sweet.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
large creamy frothy offwhite head. good lacing. mostly diminishing. translucent thick dark amber body. aroma: caramel, heavy hoppy, orange, peach-flavored black tea. if: moderate sweet bitter. ff: light sweet moderate bitter; average duration. palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Aroma IPA, amargor lupulado, dulçor caramelado, mais encorpada que uma IPA, mas o sabor, assim como prenunciado no rótulo, é semelhante. O amargor, no entanto, não escala. Sem defeitos, mas foge do estilo. A medida que ganha temperatura, o amargor estabiliza, também ao contrário das IPA. Sabor com toques earthy. Pouco malte no lúpulo, ao contrário do que consta no BJCP. 40 s

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #882 - January 5, 2014 - 650mL bottle from Coop, 5.7%. Clear amber/toffee coloured pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of malty sweetness, and a strong citrus/floral hoppy aroma. Medium carbonation. Bubbly, dry mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Light bitterness in the finish, quite smooth. Hoppy punch and a marbley-malty sweet note. Delicious.
