2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks to Beerdrenched for sharing this. Pours hazy amber with a light tan head. The aroma has grainy apples - red and green, then malt and no hops. Medium body with moderately sharp carbonation. The taste is very sharp and sour with funky apple junk. The finish was even more sour and just off. I hope this was just a old bottle because it was atrocious.

Pours dark amber with a small off white head. Hoppy aroma with fruit basket and spicy caramel/toffee malts. The flavor is caramel malty and fruit. Very plummy with a strong hop bitterness in the end. A nice beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: Pours a deep amber body with a large, pillowy, whiteish head.
Smell: Very vague aroma, yielding only small hints of pale malts and maybe citrus.
Taste: Incredibly faint flavor, I suppose the politest way to describe it is to use the word "subtle". Weak hop flavor, low bitterness. Watery finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Disappointing. Nothing really grabs you, nothing intices you to drink beyond those first couple sips.

Draft at Jack’s Bar in the Fisherman’s Wharf area. Small ivory smooth head that was fully lasting, transparent, nice looking lacing, fast-rising carbonation, and a brown hue. Nose was malty, light hop notes, crisp and clean. The flavor was malty lightly hoppy, lightly bitter, crisp and clean tasting Tingly mouthfeel and light-medium body. So-so for the style, but not one that I would go out of my way for.

Bottle from IrishBoy. Hazy reddish amber in color. Amazing tan head, huge lacing. Breesia says it looks like a jasper rock. She’s such a smart kid. Sweet malt, slightly rich flavor, with a wonderful rich grapefruity hop finish. This brewery has great things, Thanks again Irishboy!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 16 oz draft pour at The Local Beer BAr in Eureka, CA. I struggled some with this one. It came in the glass a hazy amber with an off white head. Medium in body. Bland in mouthfeel. The flavor was mostly malts, with some nuts and a hint of citrus. The finish tailed off and there was not much there. Overall, a pretty ordinary effort, and the 16 oz glass seemed pretty big by the time I was finished.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick and cloudy burnt siena with a one finger head that laces a bit. Aroma of citrus, caramel, grassy hops and nuts. Taste of caramel, sweet malt, nuts and some Vienna malt character… kind of like an amtoberfest. Flavors are kind of light with a thick mouth feel and mild bitterness.

Bottle from City Beer in SF. Clear orangish amber color with a small white head. Aroma of bready malt and slight citrusy hops. Flavor is malty with toffee, fruit notes, and a little diacetyl. Would be good if not for that slight off-flavor.
