3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(660ml bottle) Sampled at the post-GCBF party hosted by Oakes, "Big Beer Sampling". Nose of orange <!-- i -->FIZZ<!-- /i -->. Wild floral - pale ale with a light <!-- i -->Sweet Tarts<!-- /i -->. Bizarre... an almost <!-- i -->Bottlecaps<!-- /i --> orange flavour and a thin watermelon finish. Its like coated-candied beer? Oddly stimulating.

22 oz. bottle, from Liquid Solutions. Pours medium orangey amber, with a small white head. Aroma is dominated by floral notes, toasty and sweet with summer fruits and honey, along with lightly citrus hops. Flavor is very sweet and floral, jasmine is prevalent along with bitter hops of the herby and floral varities. Medium body and creamy carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle: clear gold – persistent white Styrofoam-like head…floral, honeydew aroma with hints of lemon grass, hop resin and raspberries. Creamy palate – almost fluffy texture; really nice. Strong, fresh, herbal-hop bitterness with a slightly medicinal flavour. A bit sticky and sweet through the finish, but an enjoyable beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber body under a thin white head. Has sort of a stinky brie aroma - pollen and musty orange. The flavor gets better because along with the funky pollen it brings in spicy-sharp and orangey hops.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small creamy offwhite diminishing head. Crystal clear yellow body with good lacing. Flowers, perfume, pine, citrus, lemon, peach aromas. Medium body with a bitter finish. Good balance of sweet and bitter. Very flowery overall but that was expected.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange/amber body with an off-white head. Mostly a citrus/hops aroma. A hint of jasmine that I recognized from my incense days but not very much. Pleasant citrus tang, medium sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice amber color,small white head that has a good hang time then fades to leave little behind.The aroma citrus and fruity with an aroma that is i guess flowery,The flavor was not bad at all with a nice flavor of citrus and light malt,some pine notes and a flavor that i guess i can only decsribe as jasmine.Which is not bad but definately makes this an interesting brew.Strange brew all the way but it’s worth trying.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks Chuck. The beer pours to a clean bright golden body with a thick lasting gorgeous rocky white head. The aroma is jasmine rice. The flavor is jasmine rice and toffee. Decent malt. A little drying on the palate. Medium bodied. Extremely different than any other beer I’ve ever had.

clear amber gold. Scotch-like color with some light bubbly head. Aroma is sweet watermelon hops with some sweet motherly perfume. Its okay, a little sweet. Flavor is sort of the same. Balanced a slightly different IPA.
