3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with medium light-beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, caramel. Taste is of citrus, pine, malt, caramel, bitterness. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Ok balance. Overall: Good. Would be a tad too much on caramel, but a sharp bitterness kinda succeed to balance it. Is 5,6% sessionnable? Would have to drink a couple to know... Anyways, good hybrid.

Smells like honey thin cream head. Brown in color lots of floaters which I'm told is protein breakout. Taste is malt light hops little sour. Mouthfeel is surprisingly watery. Overall not great. There's no date on the bottle but my guess is this is old.

Bottle from Whole Foods Plymouth. Pours clear medium copper with off-white head that laces well. Nose is caramel malt, hops, mild funk and florals. Tastes hoppy, crisp, with caramel malt, some late florals, and a finishing dryness with pineapple and grapefruit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank from bottle so no info on appareance.
Malty (toasty) aroma with some citrus/piney hops, but not too present.
Taste starts bready and caramel malts, end with some hops, citrus,grapefruit, piney but not too much. Starts malty sweet and ends with a light hop bitterness. Bit dry and moderate carbonation. Nice, but not that hoppy, though I didn’t care about that.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. A nice thick beige head has good retention. Thick sticky lacing. The beer is opaque and red brown. Citrus, caramel, and yeast in the aroma. This is earthy but also smooth. Citrus hops but with rich malts and heavy yeast flavors. The amber comes through in this. This offers 3 way balance with the yeast, hops, and malt. I would have like more hops. Imminently drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tasted on 12/12/13 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours clear burnt orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to average, bubbly lace. The nose has a nicely balanced aroma of light caramel malt, bread, and plenty of floral and grassy hops. The flavor is more focused on the citrus and grassy hops bitterness with the same malt character from the nose providing balance. The body is light with lively carbonation, and a medium balanced finish.

On tap at Barcade, pours murky reddish brown with small white head, alright lacing. Aromas and flavor are a malt mess, lots of caramel, sweet malt, grape juice, and bread biscuits. Medium to fuller body, with a good bit of carbonation. I never enjoy these malt forward American pales.
