3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12-oz can. Pours a hazy medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that takes off as soon as it touches the moustache. Very mild apricot nose mixed with caramel. Creamy medium body with modest carb. Caramel and apricot mid palate, along with a bit of nitrogenous funk. Not a welcome addition. Mild finish.

Can. Pours hazy gold with an off white head. Herbal and floral hops, lighter fruity notes, and a lightly sweet malty base. Just a touch of harsh bitterness in the finish. Nice enough.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle shared by Vtafro. Crazy looking label. Pours a hazy orange body with a thin white head. Wow what the hell happened, this beer is shot dunno if its an off bottle or what but dam, freaking drain pour. Soap y hop character, paper and moth notes. Some light pine citrus and caramel malts but ugh the clear oxidation or infection is overwhelming.

I was surprised to see this beer for sale in Texas.
The beer pours a orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is a strong mix of orange and caramel malts. This smells a lot like a hoppy barleywine. The flavor is very similar with some spices in addition to the caramel oranges. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not sure when this beer was brewed but it appears to have faded into barleywine territory. Still, it was not a bad drink.

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 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - World Market - 12 oz can. Pours a medium golden with nice bubble action, a sticky show white head and thick rings of lacing. Strong resiny fresh spruce aroma, touch of spearmint. Flavor has plenty of sticky hop citrusy bitterness, a touch of maple syrup sweetness, a hint of spearmint. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it. Fades just a bit in the finish, but overall pretty solid.
