3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gusher. Aroma of sweet bread, marzipan, grapefruit. Appearance is murky light brown with billowy tan head. Flavor is not as sweet as the nose, but with an underlying bitterness; the finish is lingering. Palate is very bubbly. A little messy, but not bad.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle shared by pineypower, whatever I did to you Dean to piss you off to the point where you tricked me into drinking this swill I am sorry. Aroma of fruit and bread crusts being served in a dirty diaper. Poured a hazy orange body under a small creamy white head. Flavor of sour rotting fruit, cherry juice and a dirty diaper. Palate is more like Tonic water then beer. Dreadful.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slight citrus hoppy aroma with a mild after taste of citrus. Light hop flavor was a pretty good balance for this Nevada pale ale. Went well with a stronger flavored meal like tri-tips with stuffed jalapenos.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 8/2/11
Aroma: The nose is fairly hoppy, some grass and pine, the aroma has a little bit of malt
Appearance: It pours a cloudy caramel color with a huge (gushing) white head and lots of lace
Flavor: Tastes mildly sweet with a mid hop bitterness, mostly pine and grass with some metalic notes
Palate: The feel is fairly dry, it is light-medium bodied, and has a long heavy metal (pun intended) finish
This one was a touch one too pour, it really wanted to be all head and required quite a bit of waiting to settle, which isn’t good for someone with a low level of patience. As for the beer, it wasn’t really all that exciting. I wouldn’t rush out for this one (it was hardly worth the wait...)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from the Wine Rack in Hot Springs, AR. Pours lightly hazed orange with very large off-white head. Infected maybe. Aromas of pale malts, light citrus, and grassy hops. Flavor some light citrus and bitterness, bit of caramel malt as well. Mouthfeel is thin. Meh. Unimpressed by this brewery so far. Hope the other 2 beers I have from them are a little better.
