2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewpub.
The beer pours a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma is quite hoppy and features a lot of orange and some pine. The flavor is similar, with the addition of some grapefruit. While the beer tastes OK at first, there is a soap-like quality that keeps building and eventually makes the beer tough to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Easily, the best beer at Lovejoys the day I was there. Actually had a good dose of aroma and flavor! Poured a nice amber color with a small and creamy white head. Smell was some fruitiness, some smooth malt, and very nicely hopped. A creamy mouthfeel with a bit of a carbonated prickle, and surprisingly it was delicious.. Smooth creamy malt, but with a fantastic hop presence with a slight bitterness, and very clean feel to the finish. This is one I’d gladly drink again and recommend over the other house beers I tried.

Poured amber with no head...smell is of old dishwater...seemed hoppier than the pale, but nothing really going on...sort of stale sweet...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub/bar in Austin. Pours a medium orange with a decent size fluffy head and generous lacing good bubble action. Aroma has some brief caramel notes, a bit of coffee and some fresh lake water notes. Flavor has a very mellow bitterness to it that is quite enticing. Does not have that patented Lovejoy "house taste". Pick up notes of caramel and coffee and mint. Mouthfeel is thick enough. One of thebetter I have had from Lovejoy’s.
