3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber/light amber. Short head. Clear. Nice hop aroma kinda fruity and earthy.Want to say a mix with fuggles possibly, haven’t smelled this armoa in a while, planty herbal with a bit of mint. Slightly vegetably,slight spice pepper. Want to say dank and resiony but has a bit of vegetable/plantyness. Overall better experience with aroma in this than many good pale ales. Same in taste with hop flavor and some acidity orange and carbonic sting, good caramel and a mild/medium malty toast buiscuit , just about the right about of sweetness maybe a bit more. Not real dry, think I would like this more if it were a bit drier and a tad less sweet. But its a pretty nice fullish bodied tastey rounded pale ale. Really nice drinking though altogether.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper to peach gold pour with a 1 finger creamy to soapy off white-yellowish head. Aroma is perfumey and slightly soapy floral hops, sweet citrus, a hint of dank pine, sweet caramel and an earthy pine note just peeking in. Flavor is full of toast and biscuit up front, some caramel, light nutty toffee, sweet citrus, candied floral and earthy herbal hops, with a piney finish that has a peanut butter-like nutty note coming in just for a bit at the end, weird. Light body with a slightly creamy entry but overall fairly dry feel and light to medium carbonation. Good stuff overall.

As malty an IPA as you’ll find. This beer is defined by its bready backing more than its hop finish, which is understated.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Flying Saucer St. Louis. Copper/orange pour with a white head. Caramel, pine, and grassy hops on the nose. Slightly herbal, lots of bread, and toasted malt as well. Flavor of grass, herbs, and piney, woody hops. Fairly bitter, but also a heavy caramel malt sweetness. Quite a bit of toast and mild apple.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pour is a very clear copper color with small white head that laces well on the glass. Moderate bread and crust malt aroma with some grassiness. Citrus hop up front with a tropical flavor to it and some underlying citrus. Drying clean finish. Very sessionable and dangerously drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a clear darkish orange with a small white head that fades somewhat quickly, and the aroma blends slightly nutty malts with resin and grassy hops. The taste is mildly bitter with grassy hop flavor, which is balanced out by a slight sourness; the palate fuses a medium body, soft carbonation, slightly sticky texture, and a grassy finish that is only a little bitter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] Amber in color, with a quickly receding fizzy foam head. Moderately hoppy aroma also features a decent malt backbone. Caramel sweetness and an average amount of floral hoppiness in the taste. Lingering malty sweetness is more dominant than the hop flavors. More of a hoppy amber ale in my mind. Tasting notes from 11/2011.
