2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This tastes very similiar to the brewer’s other beers: extremely carmelly, not hoppy, and not very good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper pour with a thin white head. Decent aroma and flavor of floral and resinous hops, the malt is not present though. The palate is light and oily with gentle carbonation. Not bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2006 (draft @ 2006 Autumn Festival of Ales - Honeoye Falls, NY) Had this one from the Alternative Brews table, but I think it’s the same beer. Amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is kind of bitter with some hints of caramel malts. Flavor is bitter and hoppy but mixed with heavy caramel malts and sweetness. Rather sweet with some bitterness. Kind of tastes like most of the other Custom Brewcrafter beers.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear yellowish amber w/ creamy, off-white foam. Fresh, citrusy hop aroma. Medium, somewhat resiny feel. Flavour is sweet--definitely balanced toward the malts--w/ some light citrusy notes. Mildly bitter finish.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2007 Tap. Amber color with light hops. I have a hard time being overly impressed, but it wasn’t a bad beer. Fairly light bodied. A beginners IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrus hops nose, orange/amber, little custard head. Flavour is a good hoppy start, citrus, with a malty backbone. Hoppy, zingy, medium bodied, and nicely balanced. Really good!
