3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a sampler pack. Slightly hazy rich copper with a slightly off-white head. Rich bread crust and light grapefruit are present in the smell. There is also some floral character as well as almonds. Woody grapefruit and bits of toasted bread crust are present up front. The finish is like hay mixed a black pepper bite. A solid APA with the bite of a highly carbonated body. Clean and well made.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate citrus, light caramel, and a touch of spicy hops. It pours a transparent amber with a three finger orange tinted off-white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with mild citrus and light crystal malt.The finish has mild grapefruit with a touch of spicy herbal hops. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap (nitro) at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Very creamy, potent mix of floral, vanilla, with some hops hiding in there. At first the strong floral / vanilla aroma was great, but it began to tire about halfway through. Certainly not boring but a little over-the-top in nitro form during the summer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper colored with light beige head. Nice floral & citrus hops with sweet grains peeking out from behind the hops. Sweet grainy/cereal malts with a floral, fading to a bitter hop follow. Well made and good for sure, but not quite good enough to stand out from the crowded field of excellent ales out there.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
22. Pours a very hazy medium amber with a thick bright white head. Sweet floral nose. Creamy medium body with modest carb. Sweet floral mid palate, not much contrast to balance the sweetness. Finish is...well, you can guess.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This on my tongue is a hoppy malted IPA. It works but I am not in a rush to have another. Not as good as Stone’s IPA’s, though the alcohol content is there it’ll get you drunk.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bottle; poured a nice orange amber with a persistent, frothy almost khaki head. Aroma brings me back to the NW. Citrus, earthy, herbal. Some spice, a good earthy quality, hint of citrus and fruit. Good caramel/bread backbone that balances things out. Quite a good brew
