3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a honey yellow hazy with a one finger head with heavy lacing. Toasted, cereal malt with strong forward bitter herbal and spruce hops. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Chewy. Long bitter finish. Definitely a beer for the hop head, not really balanced. It is good, though.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle. Not sure why this was downsized to the 11.2oz. Hazy orange with soapy almost white head. Pine and grapefruit nose, with a pretzel dough maltiness behind. Taste is a combination of rough flavors. Resin and simple malt. Orange zest. Nothing really blends. Dry finish. The nose is a winner, the taste could use some work. Unclear what the brewer was trying for.

Draft at liquor express. Pours dark orange with a thin khaki head. Has a bit of pine on the nose. Fairly solid hop notes on the tongue which resemble wood. Finishes clean. Solid but not amazing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a light dirty yellow color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of dry hops with light dry malt base. Taste is a mix between some dry hops which are almost astringent with a non-descript malt base that is also pretty dry itself. Body is about average with good carbonation. Interesting but hops profile is somewhat too astringent for my taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap shared by someone in April 2012. Pours a hazy gold amber color with a small bubbly white head that disappears quickly. The aroma has citrus and floral hops with a pale malt backbone. The flavor has citrus, earthy, grassy and floral hops with a pale bready malt base. The finish is more general bitterness than flavorful. Just OK.
