3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of coriander, orange peel and paradise grain is quite sublime with light caramel malt notes and some residual sugars. Taste is also dominated by grain of paradise with some orange peel and some light coriander with light caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer and probably the best I tried from this brewery with great balance between all ingredients.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
1st rating, 750 bottle. Pours a reddish amber, with off-white head. Sweet malt, nice fruity character, the orange and grains of paradise come through nicely, and lightly spicey. The flavors work well and the carbonation/body is soft and very drinkable. Nice beer, three so far from them, I think this is my favorite, but looking forward to trying more.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle via trade with doubleo, thanks Kyle. Poured a thick solid brownish/orange body under an average sized foamy white head that has some serious lasting power with a small slick of head that lasts the duration. Aroma is spicey and sweet with lots of orange juice, grains of paradise and a touch of corriander to add the spice, sadly though a bit of butter. The body is averagely carbonated with a medium mouthfeel and a rather quick dissipating aftertaste. Flavor is much like the aroma with orange and grains of paradise dominating along with lighter notes of corriander, a slight hint of mint leaves and wet bread. Solid effort.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hazy deep orange body with traces of smoke and a medium creamy white head. Very nice. Nose is red berries, clove, coriander, straw, hints of pale malts and citrus. Taste is citric peel, caramel, clove, all spice, coriander, wet grass, herbs and hints of white pepper, straw and wood. Medium to full body and carbonation. Lovely stuff really, spicy and complex, yet very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Coriander nose, with light apple and clove notes. Clear copper, medium yellow head. Surprisingly full bodied. Somewhat musty apple and overripe orange flavor. Cloves are present, but not in the foreground. Coriander finish. Well balanced and pretty well put together. Definitely not overspiced, and the base beer doesn’t strike me as substandard. Solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Stone. It pours orange with a white head. The aroma is orange, coriander, cinnamon and nutmeg. A rather odd combination of winter and spring spices. The flavor is cinnamon, nutmeg, wheat, orange and coriander. An unusual brew, and not bad.
