3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes. 12 oz bottle shared during a sharing of the Advent Calendar (not finished) on March 15. The color is a solid copper color with a thick white head and a good amount of lace. The aroms is a combination of bitter hoppiness and and a little caramel sweetness. The flavor is a little bitter and somewhat skunky. Itís definitely strange to a few of the beers I have had from Greebush. There is a subtle hoppiness and itís one of the better things about this one. The mouth feel is light and slick, with a medium carbonation and a dry aftertaste

Well, some hops. Not much flavor. Rather bland. A little bit of citrus, not much more...

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange/rose colored with a big off white head that leaves excellent lacing. Semi cloudy with yeast floating in it. smells very appealing with notes of semi-sweet caramel and floral with hints of fruit and a touch of malt. Right away you get the caramel flavor with some dried fruit. Pretty smooth drinking beer. overall its a very good beer but doesnít quite deliver what I expected. I would drink this beer again but nothing to write home about.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a nicely balanced and very drinkable pale ale. The focus is mostly on juicy citric hops which are nicely subdued w/ a mild sweetness to soften firm bitterness in the finish. This is not jumping out at me as a particularly magical experience but it is a solid and well done brew all the same.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very good APA with nice floral hop aroma and flavor. Nothing wildly exciting about it, but just good well made beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (with no mention of hops, but Iím guessing based on wind currents and rating numbers and such...) Pour is a very slightly hazy copper with a big foamy head and aromas of floral hops and a little bit of caramel. Flavor is soapy and floral with a little bit of sweetness.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours with way too much carbonation possible issue at brewery as this is a second style with the same issue. Muddy orange cloudy in color. A very nice but brief aroma of spice and fruit and fresh floral. Heavily hopped and dry. Not an explosion of flavor but light fruit and finishes with a heavy pepper and long. Not drinkable out of the bottle. The wait after the pour is not worth the experience.

bottle. Deep golden with two finger head. Overcarbonated. The hops are mid-level, but combined with the carbonation, this is just a really harsh pale ale. I recall this being much better on tap.
