3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours out beautifully, burnt orange and huge fluffy head. Aroma hints at the spiciness that follows in the taste. Not overwhelming, but complementary to the malt and hop profiles. Lingering savory flavors, slick and creamy body.

Draft pour at Frankies pizza. Pours a cloudy caramel color with a thin foam head. Slightly spicy aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor with a slightly litter finish. This beer is alright, nothing that particularly stood out.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This poured a red to amber with a white head. Aroma was of citrusy and grassy hops, seemed a little stale though, and caramel malt. Flavor was similar, bitter and sweet, only a month old but hops seem to have dropped off a lot given the description.

Pours a half finger of head on a cloudy darker straw body.
The aroma is grainy.
The taste is malty yet hoppy. Great balance. Caramel, pine and grapefruit flavors.
The texture is crisp with soft edges.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy copper amber pour with two fingers of creamy sandy tan head. Malty aroma with a kiss of spicy and earthy hops. Some crystal malt notes come through with a lightly grassy character. Flavor is kind of muddled, definitely get the citrus rind and woody note from the Centennial. Pretty heavy bitterness on the finish and lasting for sure. Not a big fan. Seems unbalanced (hate using that term) and muddled/confused in the flavor. Doesn’t know whether or not to be some IPA or strong ale and gets trapped in a bitter limbo.

Stubby little bottle. Pours a reddish amber hue with a medium white head. A big malty caramel and fruity hop nose. Comes in nicely with caramel, toffee, pine, bitter hops, lemons, orange peel. Flavorful. Smooth.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - Lots of orange peel and a caramel backbone. Hazy orange with a decent beige head. Orange and bitter peel with a long bitter finish. Sweet, caramel and bitterness, but not really interesting.
