3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 Sampled on draft at Rivertowne this beer poured a dark caramel-orange color with a large creamy orange-tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and malty with notes of smoke and hickory. The flavor was tangy and sweet hickory, smoke, bread, malt, and had a bitterness throughout. Medium length sweet and tangy hickory finish. Medium body. Ok.

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent vibrant orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells mildly hoppy with a bit of smoke. Tastes like it smells, but more robust. Solid on the palate. An interesting take on the style.

Pours a light dark amber. Has a smoky oak aroma. Taste is very unique with little hops and strong oak and smoky malt. A lingering smoky aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber/bronze pour. Nose of salty smoked malts and caramel malt. Flavor is smoked meat/salty cheese that finishes with caramel malt and citrus hop bittering. Medium body. Smoke and pale ale flavors really meld together well with further drinking. Trail of salty smoke and candied citrus. Rather enjoyable.

Not a bad ipa but not the best one I've had. Smells ok, and the flavor is good as an ipa.
