3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is sweet, fruity, spicy, yeasty. The appearance is hazy orange, white head. The flavor is fruity, peppery, not as sweet as I would have expected. The finish is spicy, yeasty. Slightly thick in body, smooth creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, but not outstanding.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Blind Tiger courtesy of Andy (Mr. Puzzl). Cheers, Dad. Pours a bright, cloudy orange body with white lacing. Aroma is fragrent and floral with a fruity, earthy hoppiness. Mouthfeel is medium with a nice dry bitterness, citrus fruits, oranges, and lemon. Nice floral flavors again, which work well with the bitterness.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the Blind Tiger. Cloudy orange pour with a small head. The aroma is more orange grove than orange, woodsy and phenolic with a great bitterness behind it. Full flavored and perfectly colored with orange notes, not juice like some contemporary beers but a fine bitterness, more in line with an Italian amaro than beer. Lovely stuff.
