3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Clean light orange body with a firm and fluffy white head. Looks very inviting.
N: Pine, spruce and earth, though thereís not a really heavy dropping here. Some tangerine and pineapple.
T: Decently bitter. Has a noticeable malt backbone, but itís got a stinging sharpness from the hops that isnít tamed.
M: Very dry and palate scraping. Fluffy and full mouthfeel.
O: A bitter power beer thatís middle of the road for a style for me. I expect a lot more from these three. Itís clean and well made, but itís not terribly interesting.

Can. Hazy orange body with a fine white head. Cheesy Simcoe musty fruit rind and pith, yeasty and sulfuric and (mildly) eggy. Sweet pound cake malt, sugary and sweet orange marmalade with a light touch of sweet onion / shallot. Sweet, bitter and yeasty. Smooth malt with creamy carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can... Poured cloudy golden amber with a thin white-ish head. Nose had earthy, resinous spiced hops. Similar hop tones in the flavor. Some bready malts for balance but low on sweetness and a nice bitterness. Citrus, black pepper spice, nice carbonation and a little drying towards the finish with some yeast notes there.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A big, golden, hazy brew with a permanent head. A thick resinous beer, with spicy orange oil notes and some spruce-like herbaceousness. It actually drinks stronger than it is. Itís very tasty, but not something I could drink a lot of. Plus all that residual sugar would wreak havoc on me in the morning.
