3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper color, medium head, persistent lace. The aroma is caramel and apples, but it isn’t strong. There’s not a lot in the nose from this one. The flavor is all malt up front, but the finish is well balanced. Sweet, rich malt behind a biting bitterness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy medium brown with lots of floaties and a thin tan head. Aromas are bitter hops and caramel but the hops are fairly directionless. Flavor matches. Pointless and disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a big lasting creamy white head that leaves excellent lacing. Weak aroma of citrus. Medium body, medium to heavy bitter taste, oily texture, lively carbonation and a very long bitter finish.

Bottle. Amber pour with a white head. Plenty of citrus hops. Good body and carbonation. A dry ending with slight bitterness. I was thinking this was a decent IPA, then saw the fine print. Amber!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle pours a light raisin color very dark for style. Moderate off-white head that dissipates in a couple minutes. Lots of hop particles floating in suspension. Very nice piney and citrus aromas. Exceptional hops to malt balance with smooth bitterness throughout. Extremely well-crafted I PA.
