3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a lot of sweet citrus with a hint of bitter grapefruit and a backing spiced bread note. Flavor has more of a pure citrus note upfront that is joined by bitter grapefruit and has the same spiced bread backing. Unique.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Dark copper/amber pour with a large sandy head. Nose is floral, herbal, and pine. Hints of a malty sweetness, but mosty hops. Taste is mostly floral hops, but there is a strong herbal and earthy presence... reminds me of rye. Sort of a dirty IPA. Iíve had this a few times now, as itís fairly common in eastern MT, but itís no world beater.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Brennans. Pours a brandy colored brownish-orange. Somewhat of an off-white head leaving some drops of lace. Aroma has sweet caramel, fruit and brandy. Taste is of spices (mostly cardamon), caramel, some herbs with a slightly metallic note. Buttery and herbal. Not sure what this is, but not very "ipa"ish. Finishes sweet and spicy, fairly short.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Medium orange amber. Hoppy nose, grassy and lightly floral. Astringent hop bitterness on the palate combined with low aromatics makes for a lackluster drinking experience. Not terrible, but not one Iíd reach for again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose of doughy grainy malt, alcohol, earthy peppery hops with a hint of white grape and dirt as well. Pours hazy golden orange, creamy white head. Flavors of dough, grain, dirt, white grape, peppery notes, alcohol. Mildly hop acidic bitter finish. Not bad, but not a standout in any way.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355mL thanks to nuplastikk. Pours a clear deeper amber orange. Dense yellow head. Good retention. Good lacing. Nose is detergent, lemon, wort, wheat cracker. Taste is honey, wheat cracker, bread, spice. Fairy raw, rustic, bitter. A tad chemical and papery. Decent. Malt forward. In fact, so malt forward and rustic I would place this as Biere de Garde. 6/4/7/3/13=3.3

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured medium orange with a short, dense beige head. The aroma picked up mostly buttery notes with some caramel.. topped by light herbal hoppage.. very malty overall, and not good malts. The flavor found similar stuff.. buttery notes, caramel, and lesser biscuity malts at the core with sharp metallic notes and herbal bitterness around.. finished with more of the sharp stuff and some warm alcohol. Medium-bodied and rough through the palate.. this was either old, not good, or some combo of the two.
