3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from Bottle into Pint glass.
Pours a clear copper color with a finger of creamy off-white head that eventually develops into a nice layer atop the glass. The nose is filled with mostly citrus and piney hops with some sweet malt aromas. The flavor is bitter hops upfront with some malt and finishes sweet and strongly bitter with a slightly dry finish. The body is medium with a nice amount of carbonation. This is a good beer although it does come across a little hot.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thick tan head and clear red orange color. Aroma of floral and citrus hops. Medium body with moderate body. Flavor is almost overwhelmed by bitter hops almost to the point of harshness. Caramel malts also. Very refreshing though. Full lasting creamy bitter finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
For some reason I just really, really like this beer. Started with a foamy white head, slight in size, above a body of brilliant and clear dark amber. Hops a plenty in the aroma, and a pleasure it was to inhale this heavenly scent. Taste was marvellously hopped and bitter without being crazy, accompanied by a slightly ’sharp’ mouthfeel. Finished smooth.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trtade with ditmier. Pours a hazy golden amber with a large off-white head that lasted through mid-glass and laced the glass from top to bottom. Very bright aroma of fresh grapefruit with a few caramel notes as well. The flavor is less fruity and concentrates more on the bitterness. Decent caramel backbone. Bitter finish that does not linger.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sun Devil. Pours a dark shade of amber with a soapy tan head -- looks great. Smells of citrus zest and caramel. Tastes of both with additional notes of dates, flour, malt, brown sugar, and bitter hops on the mid-palate. Quite nice.
