4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Now a year round beer, we can erase the Holiday Ale part! Appearance is a dark golden color with a nice 1 finger white head. On the nose you get hit hard with lemon and grapefruit followed by some earthy/grass notes. On the palate there is a nice citrus taste followed by some grass and hay and finishing with the nice hop bite, nothing too over powering. Mouthfeel is light with mellow carbonation. I believe the aroma is what makes this beer so satisfying to many.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy blonde with a fine white head. Nose is deliciously potent west coast hops with lots of citrus and resins. Flavor is a similar burst of hops, but not to the point of over bittering the malt. finish is surprisingly dry. a great example of a West Coast IPA.

The nose is mild with some initial fruity hop and some pine needle underneath. A weirdly sweet beer. Lots of sugar mixes with a very fruity hop profile, it has apricot, orange and papaya notes. It’s bitterness is pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Medium, earthy, slightly sour aroma of sweet malts and berries on the background. Golden color with small artificial head and slightly hazy liquid. Medium/strong, slightly sour and complex taste with malts, brown sugar and hops. Some berries. Averagely balanced with wide taste spectrum and long hoppy and malty aftertaste. Medium body with low/medium carbonation. Overall, a bit weird and messy, because has features of different styles.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a bright amber yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is semi-sweet and bready with a hint of pine. Nice body, light and syrupy texture. Full mouth feel. Smooth semi-sweet citrus with only a slight bitterness on the roof of the mouth. Smooth finish with flavors that linger for awhile. Solid and very refreshing and enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a pint glass.
4.25 A: Clear light orange color. Two fingers of creamy off-white head. Retention is good and lots of lacing is left.
4.0 S: The grains mesh to make something quite pleasant - earthy spiciness from the rye, grainy barley, oaty oats, and mild neutral wheat. Seems like there’s a lot of rye comparatively, you could comfortably call this a rye brew. Big orange citrusy hops, floral, and spice. Big and powerful. Pretty good.
4.0 T: Tastes like it smells. Tons of earthy spiciness, spicy hops, caramel malts. Again lots of floral and orangy hops. Mild-moderate bitterness. Again, big rye component, which I really enjoy.
3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth.
4.0 D: Really nice beer. I can see why so many enjoy it.
