3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Date tasted: July 18, 2013 ... Glassware: Kisatsky Tavern pint... Occasion: settling in for 90+ degree day number five and enjoying Evil genius beer number three....Appearance: hazy iced-tea-colored body, orange-brown and thinly drawn head; a bit like a fake tan?... Aroma: definite spruce cone scents, with some ... Palate: medium-bodied and crunchy at the teeth; otherwise, not a smooth drink but not annoying...Taste: wow--bitter hops greet the mouth with a crunch; the wheat seems to be swirling a confused, middling bubblegum stretch; odd aftertaste of vegetable (?!) banana comes late, but is welcome... Overall: of the three in this six-pack sampler, this hits best, with a definite agenda and a positive outcome; sometimes the tap lures us to the bottle and the bottle doesnít reward, much like the first full-length LP from the opening band you were surprisingly moved toward; I enjoyed this nonetheless....

Actually better than other reviews suggested. Doesn't linger on the palate too long.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark gold, clear, small white head, some lacing one the glass. Aroma is fruity, and hoppy. Taste is bitter, some lemon notes, some malts and some yeast. Actually not bad, enjoyable.

very average except for the alcohol content. Iím definitely going to try more of this brewer. Most of there beers are pretty good. This one is a near miss

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
One of the weirdest, in a bad way, aftertastes Iíve ever had! Aroma has some nice floral hops & the pour is a cloudy gold w/ a thin white head & spotty lacing. The taste is lightly hopped upfront but the finish is quite off putting w/ a very strange bitterness. The 7+ % abv is hidden well but this is not easy on the palate. Not good!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle BORN ON 2014-04-10. Nose is lemony, touch of vanilla, strong citrus hops, wheat, soft and a good blend of styles. Coriander? Definite spice. Some good fruit rind and caramel, very light wood from the hops.Pours very bold, rich golden with a soapy beige head. Crisp and very spicy body, sweet but smooth and not overdone, some wheat, soft with light malt and sweet, very fresh hops. Faint tartness and bitterness. Clean and does a better job than most at bridging the gap.

Hazy golden colored body, medium sized white head and spotty lacing. Lemon, orange zest, light grainy cereals, pepper, yeast spice. Medium to light bodied with lively carbonation, semi-dry finish, a tad muddled with mild bitterness in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Coriander and wheat aromas. Dry with sweet coriander and grass upfront turning to bitter seed in the lasting finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear dark gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that had decent retention. The nose is fruity and nicely hoppy with a light pale malt base. The bitterness is fairly restrained, with some nice floral notes. Lightly bready malt base that finishes very clean with some light bitterness. Light bodied and rather refreshing with soft gentle carbonation. Pretty nice APA, a big improvement over their other offering that Iíve had.
