3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Glowing dirty-orange ale with a large, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. The dusty, earthy nose is of pine, wood and resin. Medium-bodied with vibrant carbonation. The flavor is a perfectly-balanced fusion of caramel, toffee, pine and stale, earthy hops. Short, crisp, clean finish. Not extraordinary in any way, but certainly refreshing.

Not technically an IPA though it is in that spectrum. I keep coming back to this slightly bitter and malty fellow. The color is a little incongruous.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate malt notes of roasted and caramel, light hops and yeast notes of pine and soap, with wood and faint dried dark fruits like fig and cherry. Head is large, frothy, off-white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy medium dark orange/red. Flavor starts lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a soft to lively carbonation. This Amber Ale reaches above the style in terms of boldness and heavy body.
