3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy peach gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is floral, fruity and citrus hops, lemon, dusty grain. Flavor is wheat, floury grain, grassy, fruity and citrus hops and a nice crisp minerality to the finish along with a lightly bitter citrus fade. Light body, but with a lingering fullness on the tongue, medium carbonation. Good stuff, and nicely refreshing, hard to pin a style on it, though. Somewhere between APA with some wheat in it and hoppy Wheat Ale.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.
