3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copper/gold color with a medium white head. It has an almost cheesy aroma with a tinge of alcohol and hints of grass and flowers. The taste is equal parts sweet and sour, both are light to medium. It has a light body and a thin (but somewhat oily) texture. The finish is slightly bitter. It’s somewhat of a complex beer with it’s own unique thing going on. I doubt I’d pay bar price for this and I’m not sure I’d want a whole 6pk.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pour. Opaque, medium reddish brown. A half inch of white head, with lacing. Canned tangerines meet the nose first, but dampens quickly. Mild toast and apples cider. Sweet, seemingly by design. Medium to light body. Malt forward on the taste, rounded by some orange hop. A bit bland with a kvass like aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Nose is a dusty malt character that reminds me of Munich malt. A slightly grassy hop but not that prevalent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
THOUGHTS: Tons of hop flavors and aromas. Tons of flavor in general for a lower ABV beer. Just enough malt to keep it from being overwhelmingly bitter. One of the best balancing acts between easy drinking, sessionable ale and very flavorful, hoppy beer that isn’t overly bitter. I would definitely recommend this.
TECHNICAL: Tried 2/22/2013. Bottle. Poured a murky, dark copper like an old penny with an average, off-white head that kept a decent sheet. The aroma contained light to moderate dark bread, toasted and nutty malt, and caramel; heavy pine hops; and moderate resin and grapefruit hops. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and mod bitter; while the finish was mod sweet and heavily bitter with and average to long duration. There was caramel, toasted malt, nutty malt, pine hops, grapefruit and grapefruit rind hops, resinous hops a little orange hops and a little darker bread. The just about medium body was a little dry with fizzy and tingly carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Hop City. Pours a transparent amber with beige colored head. Arms of spice upfront with some malts mixed in. Taste is slightly bland, like unsweet tea with a bit of hops. The spice is still there and continually throws me off.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours Amber with fluffy beige head. Smell is tea and Amber ale like malt. Taste is very tea like and a bit sweet in finish. Lightly earthy and hoppy. Decent but I don’t like the iced tea flavor in beer.

Bottle. Pours a nice amber color with and off white head and some lacing. Aroma is a mixture of malt and citrus with a bit of spice and fruit in the background. Taste of malt, citrus, some spice and bit of fruit. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body and smooth texture. Easy drinker that goes down way too easy.
