Not a great balance. Like an esb with tons of alcohol, but doesn’t come together. Some barley and slight hint of citrus. Too much resinous pine. Brown pour. Bottle.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Dev-Ale has a fairly thin, off-white head, a clear, sparkling, copper appearance, and minimal lacing. The aroma is of light citrus, pine, and sweet candi sugar. Flavor is mostly of those things, with some breadiness and just a touch of alcohol, way in the back. The mouthfeel is mostly thin and a bit slick, it finishes mostly dry. Overall its easy drinking, and is pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber to light copper in color. Smallish dark beige head. Quite fruity is the aroma. Lavender and chamomile are a relax scent as well. This has a bit of age on it (bottled 8/12/14) so some of the scents may have subsided. Herbal hops and light fruit sweetness hit the tongue early. Light caramel in the middle with a continued herbal component. A little nuttiness, which might be from the age in the finish. 4/15

12oz bottle, brought back from Florida. Poured a dark orange color with a small very light off-white head. Aroma was lots of caramel malts, with some light fruit, touch of the tropics. Flavor had some light bitter hop notes, with a lot of sweet malts.

Bottle from ck1, thanks bro! Pours orangey copper with a white head. Aroma has old beer cellar, some pine and some citrus. Maybe grape and a touch of caramel, eventually. Taste is of sweet malts, tangy pine, some citrus and some earth, with old socks. Medium bodied. Some alcohol involved. Shrug? Nothing "seductive" about this one. Blah. 11.9
