3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
THOUGHTS: At first I didn’t think this was my cup of tea, but it actually grew on me quite quickly. Tons and tons of flavor for a relatively low ABV beer. They weren’t my favorite beer flavors, but they definitely weren’t my least favorite. I guess the best way I can describe this beer is that the flavors run a little wild and are rough around the edges. A little more focus would help this one. A little bit British. It could use a little more balance.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a cloudy, medium to dark, brownish orange that kind of reminded me of rusty water with a large, off-white head that mostly, but slowly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate caramel and toasted malts; moderate to heavy herbal and lemon hops; orange creamsicle; tea; and slight lemon meringue pie. The initial flavor was lightly sweet, moderately acidic and lightly bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet, moderate to heavily acidic and moderate to heavily bitter with a long duration. There was caramel malt, lemon and pine hops, some grapefruit hops, tea, metallic hos, orange hops, toasted malt and herbal hops. The medium to full body was sort of creamy and then a little dry with fairly fizzy carbonation and a metallic and lightly dry finish.

Bottle, thanks emacgee. Super cloudy with a tiny sudsy off-white head. Weak hop stale hop aroma, very grainy, paper, some lemon air freshener. Flavor is similar, lots of grain and paper, a little bit of hops and bitterness. Pretty piss poor.

A VERY cloudy light copper colored brew. Lots and lots of stuff floating around in the glass. Quite ugly. Aroma is nice and lightly hoppy. Flavor is actually quite nice. Slightly bitter. Not too sticky. Citrus notes. Well balanced.

Pours a slightly hazy amber gold with one finger of offwhite head. Nose shows some diacetyl and peach with wet hay and a light citrusy sweetness. Soft palate. Bready with some hay and grass, light peanut hull and pine. Meh.

Bomber. Pours a cloudy gold copper with a small frothy off white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is floral hops grapefruit and pine. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet hop and a bit watery with citrus in the finish. A decent Pale Ale from Full Sail.
