3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 6-01-2012 at Brew Haven Ticket Release Party at Trion Tavern-New Haven, IN. The appearance of this draft beer is a small beige head, hazy dark golden body, very little carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is floral, orange, bitter, pine, citrus hops, and caramel malt. The flavor is lightly bitter, floral, citrus, pine hops, light fruit, caramel malt, and has a dry finish. This beer is medium bodied. A session IPA with the hops upfront in the aroma and flavor. The flavor is good and this beer is worth trying,

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of frothy medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated hazy light brown orange colored body. The mild aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of hops. Seems like it should be a higher ABV than 3. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
tap at 800 degrees - Pours lightly hazy copper with a small white head. It has a nice citrus hop aroma. The flavor is of at least moderately strong hops bitterness with a good sweet malt balance. Citrus adds character to this flavorful, medium bodied, rather low alcohol brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft on tap at the brewery tasting room (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a richer deep amber orange pour, dulled body with some better glow on the edges. Gorgeous creamy offwhite head is moderate sized and sticks around well, laces solidly. Aromas are firmly bitter, touches of citrus and orange hops, mellow florals, and pale malts, bread, and a touch of dough. Gentle mellow quality. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some gentle bitterness, florals and grass, touch of spice and mellow touch of citrus moves quickly into a more bready and pale malt middle. A touch of toastiness and carmelization strike as we move into the middle. Touches of fruit and a more toast and carmelized malt finish dulls out. A touch thin, the nose leads you to believe this would be a bit more hop driven. More of a mellow session beer. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in South Bend. Pours a nice orangish color with a big head and aromas of tropical fruit. Flavor is great... especially considering the ABV... Maybe a little heavy handed on the caramel malt and graininess, but the passionfruit, oranges and loveliness are good, good, good. I could drink this ALL DAY LONG!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler at Flat 12. A light bodied, golden hoppy ale. Easy to drink, but obviously not really powerful. Still, another good session brew that would go well with food. Pretty good stuff.
