3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. At first blush this doesn’t impress as anything special. It looks, smells and feels like any of a jillion other APAs out there. But on the palate, this has an above average spicy kick in a fully flavored and well bodied ale. This could be a fridge beer. (#5429, 2/7/2014)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Shawan Liquors. Pours golden with a thin white head. Has a bit of pine on the nose. A bit maltier on the tongue than I prefer. Has a slight hop bite on the finish. It’s drinkable but not particularly compelling.
