3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a clear bright orange amber with a small white head. Aroma is pretty sweet, with caramel malts, big resinous hops, and a syrupy quality. Flavour is certainly on the sweet malty side for a IIPA, bordering on cloying sweetness, with lots of resinous hops underneath. Not at all my kind of IIPA - just way too sweet for me. Itís not bad though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh from bottle to glass. Pours a clear reddish/amber with a small tan head. Aroma was different than any Iíve had. Really fruity and sweet smelling with caramel. I got a lot of cherry in the taste as I swished the beer in my mouth. Sweet malts and caramel present. For being 10% plus I noticed no alcohol at all. Exact opposite. So easily drinkable that Iíd be on the floor after a 4 pack of this. First time trying this and not bad at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Remainder of a growler, shared by caterwaul. Clear red / orange color. Minimal white head, little lace. Nice tropical fruit, light citrus hop nose. Wow, weird flavor. Seaweed, is what stands out to me. WTF. Very odd, dank grassy seaweed paper flavor to me. Sweeter taste, light bitter. OK sweet DIPA. Probably better straight from the tap.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange amber hut with minimal head. Creamy body gives way to tangerine, oranges, light caramel and faint bittering grapefruit. More sweet than bitter.

Tap, aroma is nice and hoppie, the flavour is a good bitterness and a bit of earthy and citrus hops, the finish was smooth, good offering overall

Last beer of the night for Brew Tour 2012 WNY. We stopped in Fredonia so old Dan could see his daughter. She directed us to the local Ellicottville Brew Pub. Young Dan bought me this last beer of the night. Pours orange with an off white head. Aroma is sweet floral and citric hops, with a hint of caramel. Smooth, medium body. Flavor brings floral, and citric notes, as well as caramel and lightly roasted malty notes. Alcohol is not very well hidden. Young Dan finished this one. I was done for the night and slept most of the way back to Roch.
Thanks to the 2 Danís and Joe for coming. And special thanks for Joe driving us drunks around and being our designated driver of my car.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle Pours a clear copper with a good creamy off white head. The head lasts well, but doesnít leave much lacing at all. Has a candy sweetness to the aroma. Get hints fruits, spice and hops. The flavor is sweet with some dry hoppiness at the end. Has a dry texture. A medium body. Has a good carbonation. The finish is okay and the aftertaste a bit funky. Not bad but seems out of style.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Craft. Pours copper with minimal head and nose of heavy resiny hops, caramel malt, tropical fruit, and black pepper. Nose is like Dreadnaught Jr. Tastes of tangerine, resiny hops, and caramel malt. gets a bit hot late, and a bit malt-light, but this one is very good.
