3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, orange and with a medium white head that left a very nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is not too strong, of hops (piney and citrus notes), faint floral notes; some malts in there too. Taste is a nicely balanced combination of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. It is nice and drinkable but perhaps a bit watery.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I disagree with the high ratings on this beer. The beer is out of balance: too much crystal malt and, with all the hopping done as stated on the label, it lacks hop aroma and hop bitterness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Beautiful translucent amber with a rocky tan head. Aroma is strong floral hops, pine and citrus atop a rigid caramel backbone. Lots of caramel and chewy malt in this with floral hops, pine needles, citrus fruit and hops resins. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Rather oily as well with lingering hop bitterness. Ends with more citrus, tropical fruit notes, pine, wet hops, floral hops, light earthiness, chewy caramel and toasted malt.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle from sams. pours clear orange amber with a super thin white lace, fading quickly. nose is not as hoppy as I want. Lots of crystal malt sweetness up front, similar to an aged arrogant bastard. Flavor has some bitterness, but its mainly sweet and old tasting. Meh, down the drain it goes.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear dark gold orange with thick frothy head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt upfront. Taste follows the Aroma with the caramel malt upfront followed by some floral notes and some hop bitterness on the backend. Pretty good brew but a little thin/watery.
