2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Susep73 for this! Clear gold pour, fizzy white head and drippy lace. Aroma is grainy with hints of spruce. Body is thin. This IPA has and english feel to it. Kinda boring....

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a white head. Grainy malt aroma with some light notes of iced tea. The flavor has a light bitterness with some grainy pale malts. Decent, but not a good IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Toffee nose with traces of cinnamon. Clear golden, thin white head. The flavor is bready, spicy, and dry. Nutmeg is everywhere from beginning to end, a clever interplay of British hops. Wanting in sweetness, perfumey, and tinny at times.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has a darker golden color. Aroma is of skunked, hops, and malts. Taste is basically a skunked IPA. Has a lingering unpleasant hoppy taste in the aftertaste. Too bad because I was looking forward to trying this one.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
tap for $4 at the rattle and hum nyc. wheaty yet clear in metal taste from the tap that reveals fruit and then good fruit as the beer goes down.orange and sweet with dishwater hops just gets better as you drink it. not an American type ipa by a longshot more refined and suited up. a bit floral more muted in tastes but somewhat layered. refreshing and not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange/copper with a nice white head. Smells of citrus, dry malt, resiny, spicy. Tastes citrussy and earthy with a nice, dry finish.

A orange amber ale with a thin white head. Light hops with light alcohol notes. It has a citrus flavor with little hops and grin notes. A little watery.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Not a bad IPA but nothing great and why do they call it winter ale? I was expecting some kind of strong spiced beer not a light colored plainer tasting one.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The color of this surprised me right away. Pretty light in color for a winter. Some moderate spice and malts. A little bittering hops too. Plain for winter beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a gold yellow color, much lighter than I would expect a winter ale to be. Also, a small white head with no lacing. Aroma is grains with piney hops. Palate is thin with moderate carbonation. Flavor is mostly grains with corn and a hint of malt. Some hop bitterness in the finish. An alright effort from Geary’s.
