3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to snifter. Hazy amber pour leaving a soapy white head that fades and shows minimal lacing. Aroma is pine hops that are somewhat pungent and a soft malt scent, but mainly hops. Taste is bitter pine and a little oily and a malty dirty finish with the hops lingering. Palate is medium and gritty with a chaulky finish. Thereís something good going on here, but I canít put my finger on it.

This pours cloudy amber with a tall, sticky off-white head.
Pine and citrus are melded with a juicy malt base in the aroma.
The flavor is bitter with plenty of hops, yet the sweetness is there in the back all along.
A welcome new comer to my area.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle as a rare find in TN for a new state! Pours a deep amber/almost copper. A few bubbles float around on the surface, little carbonation. Aromas are English IPA-like... lots of caramel malt, herbal hops, a little resin and spice. Flavor is similar... I like the West Coast-style IPA description, but this is more of a hybrid between West Coast and England. Flavor is OK... but again, itís more herbal and spicy hops instead of citrus and resin. Itís good, but not quite as advertised.
