2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
THOUGHTS: Very strong aromatics. But that aroma wasnít entirely pleasant. It was a little harsh actually.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium amber with a large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma had heavy grain cereal and caramel; light to moderate pine and minty hops; light orange hops; and something off. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was heavily bitter and lightly sweet with and average to long duration. There was caramel, grain, cereal, orange hops, pine hops, and citrus rind hops. The light to medium body was leaning toward medium and was a little syrupy with fizzy carbonation and a rather metallic finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ Sunset Grill & Tap. Dirty amber color with thin head. Aroma is herbal hops and like toffee. The flavor is similar with a light floral hops with a light-medium body, mild carbonation with a light dry bitter finish. Borderline an IPA hop profile worth a try if you can find it on draft and enjoy amber ales.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber body under a one finger fizzy off-white head. The nose is a mix of citrusy hops and sweet crystal malt. Never big fan of heavy crystal malt, so not sure how this one will go. The flavor is just awful as far as Iím concerned. Itís just huge and heavy crystal malt with just a light citrusy hoppiness. This has so much residual sweetness itís like drinking brown sugar and instant iced tea powder. Light to medium bodied with a slight stickiness and fizzy carbonation. Iíd never buy this one again.

1.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
On draft, cloudy, muddy appearance. Pleasant aroma, a hint of coffee with the malt. First sip was offensive after a Wit, repeated tastings improved only slightly. Can't find a flavor with which to compare it. Just harsh up front and lingering dirty bath water.

Iím not understanding the harsh/low ratings for this beer. I delivered on what it said it was. Nice sweet malts of a typical amber with an aggressive hop profile. It ís okay, not bad.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle from Crossroads Spirits. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a small fluffy tan head. Aroma of expired ipa. Loads of maltiness and old rotted citrus fruit. Taste of sharp lemon peel, old lemon pulp, caramel malt, and watered down grapefruit juice. This beer has a strange bitterness and is really unbalanced.

Not too hoppy even though it is labeled as a hoppy amber. Has that coppery taste. It is okay.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma Is apple, pear, apricot. Dark brown color...a little cloudy,small white head. Taste is apple, grapefruit, some alkaseltzer. Sourness is a turnoff. Not terrible though. Probably the least disappointed Iíve been in an evil genius beer. Yes, thatís a backhanded compliment.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 Draft at beer fest. Pours clear copper with a small off white head. The aroma is muted floral notes. The taste is light bitter and dry bitterness. Not a favorite from a solid local brewery.
