2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper pour. Small off-white head. Nose is toasty malt, earthy hops, burnt sugar. Burnt-toast malty profile, slight sweetness, earthy and piney hops. Medium body. Resin and bready malt in the finish. Not a terrible beer, but I liked the aftertaste better than the beer itself.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2015 12 pour from a refrigerated bottle into a pils glass. Great pour. Very fluffy head. Lasting with good lacing. Great copper color, nice carbonation, and clear as day. Beautiful beer. Creamy mouthfeel. Nose is malty, a little piney, a little resiny. Taste is bitter, light hops, light malt. Very balance beer. A great pale ale.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sourced from a 12 oz bottle. Remimds me a lot of thin maple syrup. Acid at the front, hops and then a sweet finish. This thing is hoppy, its more of the english style hoppy beers rather than a citrus style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flight pour on tap at the brewery (Lawrence, KS). Pours a nice glowing copper pour, a bit fiery and near transparent with that luscious ruby red body and glow. Frothy offwhite head is sizable, cakey with good retention and lacing. Aromas present grapefruit and citrusy hops, touches of gentle bready malts, a bit of biscuit and earth. A bit spritzy, hoppy and citric as it settles and warms. Initial is fuzzy and bitter, a good hit of "C" hops gives floral bitterness, pithy grapefruit and rind oils. Some gentle bread and earth, grass. A firmer hop profile and bitterness grows as a wave on the palate. A bit earthy, bready, that cool and bitter citric and grapefruit element flows well, hits the senses with a nice hop character. While the malt bill shows just a touch of depth, this one ends up fairly C hop-centric and bitter, a bit earthy and fairly session worthy. Nice stuff. Potent hoppy nose, good look and a nice flow on the palate with a firmer hop element that it’s overwhelming. Tasty.
