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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, not your typical APA. Amber pour, good foam, hoppy aroma...nice. Taste of hops, with strong malt backbone, and dry hoped taste. Light bodied, not as hoppy as most APA, but enjoyable taste. Worth the try, not willing to buy a case of it though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper in color with a bubbly off-white head that faded quickly. Had a bit of a wet hop aroma. Very malty aroma and flavor for a pale ale. I’m used to more hop presence in an APA but this was refreshingly different. Malty sweet flavor with a clean finish. Truly a session beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light murky medium amber with more red hues and a frothy head. Aromas of a balence of pine/herbal hops and caramel/slight toffee. Flavors of light pine hops with a backbone of toffee. Has a light nuttyness as well. Leaves a pine like dry/bitterness in the finish. Medium dry, medium bitter, and a decent balance hop/malt ratio in the flavors.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a very slightly hazy medium brown with a one finger off-white head.
Aroma of earthy hops with a somewhat British quality about them. A little bit of rye spicyness along with come toffee.
Flavor is piny/earthy hops up front with some toffee and roasted caramel underneath. Everything seems to fall off rather quickly, however, leaving nothing but a light bitterness carrying through the finish.
Overall, a decent brew but a little too light on body. I know it is supposed to be a session brew but it is just too watery and the flavors drop off way too soon.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The appearance of this beer is really appealing due to its large-grained sediment settling on the bottom, dark reddish orange color, and medium and foamy head that has good retention; also, the aroma fuses notes of resin and floral hops with roasted malts. Once sipped, the taste is mildly bitter, slightly sour, and a touch sweet, and the palate combines a bitter finish, medium body, average carbonation, and a sticky texture.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown orange with two fingers of pillowy off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, resinous, piney, with himts of malt. Flavor is mildly hoppy, bitter, resinous, citrus, over a nutty malt background. Nice choice of hops lend it a citrus, piney and spicy character. Soft carbonation, medium body, and smooth but mildly oily texture. Drinkable, smooth, and mildly hoppy, a solid beer.

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.
