3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. Good stuff. Pours almost a deep golden brown with orange hints. Very light aroma mainly consisting of fairly sweet malts. Flavor is inviting, and gets right into the pale aspect of things right away. Almost a burnt hop flavor exists, but its good, and draws you back for more. VERY piney - the body, the finish, the flavor. Burnt pine...yes, and then sour pine towards the finish that lingers (I’m noticing they’re good at finishes here). Good stuff, wonder how it is bottled.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber hued straw body with a lasting white head. Light grainy malt complex of toasted bread and slight caramel - perhaps a biscuity quality. Mostly dry with mild carbonation. Stale hop presence with a grassy note. Came across more like and English pale.

From a growler filled today. Amber color with a modest head and lacings. Floral, fruity aroma. Taste is bitter orange with a malt profile that barely supports the hops. Hops are bitter, somewhat piney, and quite fresh tasting. Some earthiness in the palate. Decent APA, very drinkable.

Re-Rate 06/05/02: Nice deep amber color, the head frothy and beige, the nose lightly floral, huge ’Hits’ of malt. Front is sweet, the top is light, big hop finish, dry, acidic, and much more drinkable than their ’Red’.
