3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looks like iced tea. Sweet rice malty aroma. Also a slight touch of grassy hops and a Belgian, but dry, quality to this. Kind of an odd ball but mostly successful.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pour is kind of orange with a huge thick head that hangs on. Aroma is light and has banana, malt, yeast, and a light citrus hoppiness. Starts out with a grassy and piney taste, develops to bread/yeast, and finishes again with hops. Body was a bit watery with light carbonation. Not the best offering Iíve had from Empyrean but not even close to the worst.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Coppery aroma yields to a typical "pale ale" taste with a minimal hop residue. An average beer...

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Lima beans, wheat, cereal, creamy.
A- Copper color, clear liquid, minimal head.
T- Malty, crisp, wheat, cereal, caramel, vegetables, cream.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, mild finish.
O- This doesnít taste like much of a pale ale to me. Virtually no bitterness or hops. A faint vegetable smell and taste that kind of turns me off but still not horrible.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 Transition Ale? I guess thatís Empyreanís way of calling this ale a mutt. I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Its hop profile is like that of a pale ale, yet its body seems like what you would find in a cream ale. Regardless of how one chooses to classify this ale, Iím glad that I get to call it one thing: tasty. The mouthfeel is sleek. The flavor is rich, then freshly hoppy. Domino Effect doesnít seem to fit a defined style, but thatís just fine. Itís right at home in my glass.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is malts/grains and very light citrus. The flavor is citrus, fruit/pomegranate, light hop resin, malts and a tangy/slightly sweet finish.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Bottle. Kind of a murky pale orange pour with a smaller head. A little bit of citrus and mild malt, but not very interesting overall.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale dirty orange. Not much head,slight lace. Generic yeast aroma.Light grain aroma,with light tartness. Possible oxidation.
Light malt taste ,light hops-citrus like,kinda generic, almost stale,metallic. Overall mild and kinda awkward,not surprising with my expericences with empyrean. Dont think Ive liked one yet, Iíll take tallgrass over any of these anyday. Kinda neutral about this,its still beer and slightly better than some light lagers Has some bitterness like a pale ale otherwise Something falls very flat in taste of this.
