2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Just slightly better than their amber which isn’t saying much. Tasted just like their amber. Strong seltzer water with dirty dishwater in the front and a bitter hint of hops in the aftertaste. Blah.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy orange/amber with a decent white head. Floral hop nose and a citrusy hop flavor over a honey-like maltiness. Dry, tangy finish. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml. Murky, melted butter color with a huge and lasting head with big foamy lace. Aroma of crackers, sourish honey. Flavor of crisp dry cereal with honey. Finish is bitter herbs and grass. Palate is light-medium bodied and mostly smooth with a slightly dry and tingly finish. This one is underrated, probably because it doesn’t taste like the ever-present, Cascade-hopped PA.

Bottle from Hi-Time Wine. Medium golden color upon pouring. Aroma is a little hoppy. Hoppy flavors. Not super hoppy. Little balance. Decent drinker, but not great.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of yeasty bread, citrus/floral hop and ? Something musty? Anyway, the aroma is attractive. Slightly hazy orange tinged amber color with a decent white head that left lace spotlets as it filmed. Medium bodied. Light carbonation that lead to creaminess as it departed. The flavor seems to start with a slightly sour citrus, followed by nutty malt flavors. This finish leaves suggestions of hazel nut, a veg character, and enough citrus sour bitter to make it work.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle. Poured a medium to deeper golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of yeast, spiciness, lightly fruity, and citrus. Tastes follow suit. Fizzy and over carbonated body that completely detracted from the tastes. Overall the aromas and tastes were on the light side and nothing seemed to work well together.
