3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"an above average american pale ale. hopped similarly to Sierra Nevada with a more obvious and better balanced malt profile, IMHO. crisp, clean, malty with a ton of hops in the finish...way more than the 32 ibus suggest. 5.4%"

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at brewery. Hazy copper color, white head. Very sugary and toffee in the nose. Flavor is caramel with even some burnt toast flavors. A touch of butter or some yeasty off flavor, detracting from the hops. Not their best offering I had of the day by any means.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a golden amber color with a huge fluffy white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was thin peppery and vague fruity hops. The flavor was thin and bitter with pepper, vague fruity hops and tasted watery. Medium length finish. Light body. Disappointing.

Draft at Moriartys. Hazy orange amber pour with a soft foamy top. Earthy floral hops with a caramel backbone. Tangelos. Vanilla bourbon. Dandelions. Some light bready notes in there too. Body feels too sugary. Bitter finish. Not really enjoying it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Beachwood Brewing. Copper colored pour with a white head. Nose is nicely floral, some citrus zest bite, and toasted bread. Caramel malt, pine, and a surprisingly fruity, estery character, too. The flavor is very sweet. Brown sugar and caramel dominate. Lots of grass and straw. Pine and a harsh bitterness on the finish. Light citrus and some floral hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Fifty Fifty. Clear golden amber, with white head. Caramel malt, grains, light citrusy hops. Pretty mild on the bitterness, more malt centered. It’s ok.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(on draught at FiftyFifty). Pours a hazy copper color with an off-white head. Aroma is bread, resin, pine and caramel malts. Taste is sweet with some bitterness. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Dry, bitter finish. Seems off-balanced to me.
