2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz pours light amber, smells of Carmel malts and a little cat piss. Tastes like a mouthful of malt and no hop flavor very unpleasant.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine & More in McLean, VA. Clear orange pour with a pure white head. Grassy hops in the aroma and taste, backed up by caramel malts and a palate that is more dense than the appearance would suggest. Not bad at all.

Very cloudy golden orange colour with big off white initial head leaving a small nice sticky lace. Iím getting a sweet malty smell with nice orangey citrus notes. Fantastic balance of bitterness and orange rind with a light sweet malt finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Totally dominated by grassy hops. Flavor is grass, wheat, biscuit but fairly balanced. Surprised to see this at 7.5 abv. All in all nothing noteworthy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bomber pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a 2 finger white head with some good retention that leaves some nice lacing rings. Aroma is very pleasant with light fruits and citrus (oranges and grapefruit) and caramel. Taste is light grapefruit bitterness with some caramel and orange sweetness finishing with some hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A very interesting blend of an IPA and a winter seasonal sans spices.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hoppy aroma has a sour citrus note that has both grapefruit and orange elements plus a woody underpinning. It pours a pretty clear amber with a thick, fine-bubbled white head that leaves some generous lacing. Flavor is hoppy and woody, a little bitter, with more than a hint of fruity sweetness and some citrus. Smooth texture has about average fizz and body. Overall, not terrific, but worthy of a try.
