3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 Sucks? NOT!! On tap at Global Brew. Pours a beautiful clear golden with a medium white head. Sweet citrus hop aroma. Sweet malts and a pleasant bitterness/sourness dominate the flavor. Really good without being overly hoppy.

Golden orange, decent sized white head. Aggressive hop aroma, mostly grapefruit, but some earthy undertones. Flavor is also hop forward, with caramel and some earthy notes. Not bad...

Amber pour with a sparse white head. A very interesting and complex pale ale. Nutty, fruity, and only slightly bitter.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Juicy hop aromas of pineapple, peach, mango, papaya, pine, resin, and flowers. Clear, pale orange, with a moderately lasting, white head. Very bitter initially, but quickly bolstered by rich, sweet malts. Medium bodied, spicy, moderate carbonation, and a lasting fruity, bitter finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the Dig Pub Cedar Park TX. Pours bright gold and a little hazy with a leggy white head. Nose is aromatic piney hops. Taste is the same and along the lines of a Pliny the Elder-smooth, just a bit sweet, and tingly nose. Body is full and slightly sticky. Alcohol is well hidden but slightly noticeable. Sweet beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 Aromatics - Starts off straight hoppy, I get a lot of lemongrass, grapefruit, and passion fruit.
Appearance - Looks like piss. Small head that stays.
Taste - Taste a caramalt/ crystal malt like backbone that is quickly melded with a mild dose of hops. Lot of the same flavors that I smelled with an addition of pineapple (yeasty?).....
Palate - Is medium to full and very "good feeling." Creamy & slightly fizzy (in a good way).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. lightly hazed pale gold with a fine white head. Pliney-esque fruit nectar hops in the nose, lightly grassy, somewhat onion-like, but not taken too far in that direction. soft malt body, creamy carbonation, zesty, prickly hop acid washing the tongue. a bit too much cooked / caramelized corn syrup with a touch too much toffee sugar, and a bit too chewy late. but for me it’s a rare likable beer from these guys. wish it were around 5%.

(bottle) Pours a clear gold color with a large white head that settles to a medium cap and leaves sheets of lacing on the glass. Aroma is very potent with scents of kumquat, powdered Tang, grapefruit, light booze, and light pine. Aroma gets more piney and herbal as it warms. Flavor holds some tropical fruit, like papaya, with faint mango and tangelo also appearing. Mouthfeel is rather full and rounded while the carbonation is subdued, which leads this to be very drinkable. The finish is fairly bitter and quite dry which leads to a nice transition from the sweet fore and mid. Overall this is a really solid beer that I wouldn’t object to drinking again.
