3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nearly clear orange pour with a 1 finger, creamy, soapy white head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, cereal and citrus, fruity, floral and light tropical fruit hops. Flavor is nice toasty cereal and sweet malt up front, lots of citrus hops, straw, dull, doughy yeast, very faint medicinal notes and dirty minerality to the finish. Medium body, syrupy to chewy entry, medium, blanketing carbonation. Pretty good overall, a little syrupy and kind of simply, but tasty.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is mostly clear orange amber with a fairly tight white head and strong lacing. Nose has a bit of caramel malt and notes of bread. The hops are citrusy and piney. Taste is balanced as well, sweeter caramel malt, bread is a bit lighter. Hops in back, more bright than the nose, lots of grapefruit and pineapple. Lighter body, strong carbonation, dry clean finish.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours unclear yellow golden. Medium, very creamy white head, fairly lasting with lace. Great, aromatic, hoppy aroma; super fruity, citrus, light pine, grapefruit especially, hint of peppery/spiciness, weedy. Flavor follows. Full body. Pulpy grapefruit. Great balance. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Shockingly smooth and easy to drink. Smooth. Rounded. Great subtle rye. Soft and creamy. Awesome... Love it.

From a bottle. Awesome pine smell, gold color w/ nice foamy top. Hops hit you hard but finishes amazingly smooth. I’m new at this beer rating stuff but I suspect this one is hard to beat!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Caliente in Pittsburgh. First sips reveal strong hops and a mellow creaminess going down the throat. Plenty of complexities and a strong body, perhaps a little on the flat side. Not perfect, but close to excellent.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 On tap at Blackthorn Pub, Holly,MI...beautiful golden pour with white lacy head. I was in love at the first sip...bursting with a citrus grove and pine forest with each a distinct and awesome presence. This has an especially woody flavor that finished with a dry resinous bite. I have to have more!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice golden color with a thin white head and decent lacing. Aroma is reminiscent of an ipa but with a rye undertone and malt sweetness. Tatse is a great mix of bitter hops, sweet malts, and rye. Very well balanced. Great beer!
