3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thin offwhite head of fine bubbles. Hoppy aroma with a bit of wine. Very strange. Also some roasted grains and dried orange peel. Color is a dark copper. Flavor is rather bitter with some tea leaves, resinous pine, bitter salad greens (dandelion) and some straw. Bit harsh the flavor. Very dry and astringent which lingers through the finish. Am ok but rather forward APA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours out a decent amber/copper color with not much of an off white head. Aroma is of bready malts, light toffee/ caramel sweetness, some citrus and light floral hops. Taste definitely leans towards more of the English style, cracker malts, cereal, some citrusy/floral hops, some lingering bitterness among the sweetness.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-orange-caramel color with a small creamy orange-tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was vegetal, sweetish, sour caramel and faint dark fruits. The flavor was tangy, sweet and vegetal with notes of sour caramel and faint dark fruits. Medium finish. Medium body. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose of strong caramel and lighter resin, citrus and lightly tropical fruits, dough. Pours a nice in-between amber, supports a rocky beige head. Taste medium-strong bitterness with only slight sweetness, woody with caramel and lighter citrus. Hops here are earthier, slightly spicier. Lightly oily medium body more like thick alcohol in the middle with watery edges, there’s just no connecting malt. Cleansing and soap-stripping, mildly refreshing, clean.

True to it’s description, very nice blend of fresh hops. Very clear, caramel undertones, no off flavors, consistent. Looking forward to finding it on tap when I’m in the Balt area.

Bottle into pint glass, cloudy amber’ish-golden color with white head. Aroma of citrus/fruity hops and caramel malt. Taste wasn’t as hoppy as aroma led on, well balanced adding notes of breadiness, piney/floral hops and some graininess. Medium body, low carbonation, crisp with bitter finish. Taste APA.
