2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a snifter. Copper color, almost transparent held up to the light with a half inch of white head.
Smells like a handfull of hops. Sharp citrus with malty notes.
Initial watery taste, then the hops kicking in some bitterness and a slight malty sweetness. There does not seem to be any complexity, pretty one-sided and unbalanced by the bitter.
Crisp and bubbly. Light body and quick finish.
Not really excited about this beer. The nose and appearance were really good, but the taste was a let down. Not a great drink, but not bad either.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drinkable for the style. It is hard to do a really outstanding IRA and this one is not bad. Not great, but totally agreeable with a steak dinner. Nice looking beer on draught with just enough head. Worth a try.

Can (6.1%) from Trader Joe’s. Pretty fresh canned on the 7th. Deep crystal clear amber in color. Hoppy nose. Some grapefruit, along with a little dankness. Some candy sugar as well. Well hopped. Pretty pungent flavors with a decent amount of malt character. Finish is a little lacking, but overall a very good amber.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Pours a somewhat hazy dark amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose has quite a bit of floral and citrus notes, which was a nice little surprise. Taste is slightly bitter up front, but quickly changes to a muddled malty sweet finish with dough. Great smell, odd finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pounder can picked up tonight at the COOP... Enjoyed at the wife’s office... Pours a clear glowing amber with a great off white head that leaves great lacing. Not as bitter as I expected, but a very balanced hoppiness perfumes the aroma and flavor with PNW hops and is tempered by a biscuity-dry toast maltiness that is surprisingly dry given the malty complexity... Very drinkable with a light/medium body and standard bubble. No flaws.
