3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (12 oz). Hazy dark amber with a medium light beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of caramel, hops, citrus and lot of fruits. Taste is moderately sweet with caramel/malt, lot of fruits and light bitterness. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Decent Red IPA. Not sure this style has a bright future though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours nice dark amber with a medium off white head. Bottle is apparently out of date unfortunately. As such the aroma is mostly dead hops. Dead hops in the taste as well, but the nice thing there is that lets the beers awesome malt bill shine. Nice chocolate and caramel notes. Medium palate with solid carbonation. This beer has a lot of potential so I'm going to seek out a fresh bottle and re-rate.

This is wonderful. Pine hops is super poignant here. Juicy grapefruit aroma as well. I want to bite into this beer. Pours ruby with carpet lacing and good head. Bitter finish, average carbonation. Tap at brewpub.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle purchased at Pinocchio’s Beer Garden in Media, Pennsylvania. The pour is a mostly clear copper burnt orange with a well formed one inch off white head. The aroma is fresh resin, floral citrus, and a nice soft caramel malt sweetness. The taste is a nice blend of the dry resin, floral orange citrus hops, and the soft caramel sweetness of the malt. The resin cuts the sweetness nicely, and the overall balance really works. The palate is medium bodied, with soft carbonation and a mineral resin earthy finish. Nice beer.

12 oz. bottle. Dark amber color with a medium offwhite head. Roasted malt, burnt caramel, light fruit and citrus aromas. Buttery mouthfeel, little sweet, but finishes bitter from the hops.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 This beer has a dark red color to it with a thick head on it. You can really smell the floral aroma of the hops. The taste was great & i would recommend this beer.

Bottle. Pours a deep copper-red with an offwhite head that persists. Nose is nice. Citrusy and light caramel notes that actually work. somewhat fruity over all. On tasting, crisp bitterness and noted caramel character without being too sweet. Good citrusy cascades come through on the palate to balance it all out. Really nice Amber.
