3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Rich deep copper coloured beer topped by a thick white head. Sweet fruity hop aroma, cascadey citrus, peach, orange and some light resiny notes as well. Sweet biscuty malt notes as well, caramel, cookie dough. A bit of zesty/spicy hop flavour is notes as well. Flavour is well-balanced. Sweet malts and just enough hop bitterness to balance. Bitterness is actually fairly light and is followed by a lingering brown sugar sweetness.

"Poured an amber color with almost not head, lacing was okay. Aroma was hoppy and citrusy. Flavor was caramel malts with the citrus hops in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel was a little off not sure what they missed here."

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Easily one of my favorites. Pours an amber/reddish color that remains a bit cloudy. Tastes of maltiness, citrus, plum, caramel, and some hop presence. Rich flavor throughout the entire glass.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Lots of caramel and toffee in the aroma with a hint of citrus hops. Pours a cloudy reddish-orange with a moderate off-white head that diminishes quickly. Finishes has some very light citrus hops and a touch of roastiness. Decent beer, but a little too malt dominated and sweet. A tad more hops would probably go a long wall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Different label than that in the picture. A hazy copper/amber pour with a very thin tan head. Lots of malts, caramel and brown sugar in the aroma. Medium-bodied. Tastes like it smells - full of malts. Enough herbal hops to keep it from being too one-sided though. Lots of sweet caramel and some brown sugar present. Just a touch of warming alcohol in the slightly bitter and grainy finish. Solid and enjoyable.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of the best copper ales I have ever had my lips on! The taste was outstanding alongwith the aromas....a classic with new world feel!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yeah, I’m not getting any "kronik" aromas here either (i.e. nothing marijuanna-ish at all), so unless they are in some way referring to the higher alcohol content, I’m not sure what they are getting at with the name. Just as I did with the pils, I’m getting a weird olive vibe in the aroma, and after I get used to it, I can pick out some caramel. Quite a malty palate, a little on the sweet side. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Rogue Public House in San Francisco. Amber with a white head. Thick wall of lace. There’s not much here! Is this supposed to be a hemp ale? It certainly does not have any of the hemp flavor I have tasted in other such beers. Maybe a little bit of tea flavor. Mild hops. Boring.
