2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Thin light khaki head. Clear orange color. Decent lace. Thicker, stronger carbonation keeps this from being too drinkable. Light bitter, kind of toasted taste. Some hops, but more resiny malts. It’s light, and has decent flavor, but I wouldn’t pick it for a session (I wouldn’t want to drink two of these in a row). Also, 5.6% is a bit high for 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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours an almost clear amber brown with a thin to medium sized white head. Big bitter hops on the nose, toast and a bit of malt. Smells a touch burnt oddly enough. Medium bodied, the weird burnt thing from the aroma comes back here, moving into a bitter malt and toast area. Bitter finish with a bit of malt and toast. Drinkable at least.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours clear copper with light tan head. The aroma offers up sweet malts, some malt roastiness, a bit of nuttiness and then slivers of sweet dark fruity esters with some tingling spicy hops and molasses. The taste is similar with more malts than I was expecting with some decent malt roastiness, a bit of biscuit and then it flows into clean spicy to earthy to a bit pine resiny like hops. Into the finish some grainy malts make an appearance as do a bit of sweet dark fruity esters. Pretty nice level of hops that seem to be at about equal strength to the malts plus esters.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured a lovely shade of coppery-orange with a creamy cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up juicy orange, mango, and pineapple over caramel, a touch of molasses, and something earthy/fruity that I couldn’t quite place. The flavor opened with bitterness and a bit of sourness.. caramel and dark bready sweetness at the core.. quite bitter on the edges, but aside from a mild citrus component, the bitterness was nondescript.. finished bitter with some fruity and caramel sweetness. Light-medium bodied and bitter as mentioned on the palate.. I enjoyed the nose, but it was downhill for me after that.

12oz bottle: pours a transparent dark golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with a fresh resinous hop character. Starts with pretty good fullness and mild sweetness with a clean hoppy bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. Has good hop flavor and drinkability.
