3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromas of fresh hops, cinnamon and honey. Deep amber/copper in color with a small foam top. Skunky malt flavors upfront with a subtle hop bitterness in the back. Light carbonation, syrupy malts and medium bodied. Overall, a decent ale with some honey/caramel malts and a subtle hop bittterness. I’d give this a C rating.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
An interesting ale - amber with an orange tint, an aroma of yeasty caramel, and a fairly well balanced malt-to-hops ratio. I’m not getting the fruit that others have mentioned. Easy to drink, but nothing stands out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a decent but too thin amber with a nose of orange peel, grapefruit rind, and sweet bread. Flavor is a nice, subtle grapefruit with a light finish of orange, pine, and light biscuit. Oily mouthfeel. Great beer; restrained yet the flavors shine boldly. Definite repeat.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - Malt, grains and a mild aromatic hop. Clear amber with nice medium head. Very dry and bitter but not much flavor. I do get some sweetness but again nite much flavor. Not what i would consider a session ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden to light amber hued body with a small white head that lasts with some lace. Aromas are bready, malty, biscuity and lightly grassy. A touch of grapefruit and citrus. Flavors are medium citrusy, orange, tangerine and grassy hops. Some bready and toasty malt with low caramel. Lively bubbles, somewhat dry finish. Not bad.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy brownish orange, large white head that quickly recedes to a small cap, leaving behind some whispy lacing. The aroma is caramel, apple, burnt orange, and resiny hops. Medium bodied. Nicely balanced. Solid maltiness provides caramel and and toast notes, mildly bitter finish, some distant orange and tropical fruit.
