3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a slight beige head. Nice aroma of resin over lightly roast caramel. Med body. Flavor is sweetish roast caramel with some citrus and resin. Even a bit floral. Itís not harsh. Itís not NWestish. But itís pretty tasty. Loaded with hop. I think itís somewhat underrated.

Can with friends. Yellow appearance with a lasting white head. A bit of cardboard, lemon, and earth in the nose. Moderate sweetness. Pretty high bitterness. A little bit of toast, quite a bit of grapefruit, pine, and chewy malt. Kind of old but not very good anyhow.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz. can, pours a murky orange / brown with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus hops and some unpleasant cloying maple syrup - uh-oh. Flavour is quite musty, with herbal hops, some syrup notes, caramel / toffee, finishing on a hoppy sweet note. The warmer it gets, the more herbal and nastily sweet this becomes. Quite repulsive, really.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Freakiní Frog in Las Vegas. The beer pours a hazy orange-amber color with a medium and foamy light beige head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Floral hops aroma with a malty and citrusy undertone. Medium body with a moderately hoppy character that is mostly citrusy and has malt and sweet fruit behind it. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Pretty good effort overall.
