3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep copper color with a medium white head. A nice mellow fruity malt with some orange peel in the nose. The flavor is pretty interesting: bitterness, sweet earthy malts, clean and finishes with more hop bite. Nice brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Lucky Lab on Hawthorne, PDX, 26/05/13.
Hazed dark amber orange with a thin off white head.
Nose is caramel, touch of hops, bitter orange notes.
Taste comprises orange pith, caramel, biscuit, bread, touch of hops and a little pine thrown in.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light pine bite with hop bitterness in the finish.
Drinkable stuff but not particularly true to style - leave the hops out US brewers it won’t hurt you occasionally !!!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Third beer into my flight here and I’m starting to notice a sameness between all the beer - this is clean, medium dry, crisp, with piney and citric hops - nothing stand out, but clean and quaffable - a light bit of estery notes - not as malt-forward as most alts I have had - decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Lucky Labrador. This one was on style, although not too exciting. A bit of extra pine aroma and a bit more bitter than most alts.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange-amber with modest head. Warming malt nose pricked with citrus hop infusion. Not terribly alt-like hoppy body. More in the style of a hop-centric American Amber / Red Ale. Solid malt backbone with juicy citrus hop infusion. Moderate citrus bitterness.
