3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Two pints on tap at the brewpub. Nice crisp general malt and hop aroma, leaning Cascade and hop heavy.
Snappy - I like this. Pours a rich coppery red, deeper hued with a
good lacey off-white head. Flavor is rich and clean. Balanced fresh
malt sugars play off a classic west-coast hop bitterness, accented
nicely with restrained levels of flavor and aroma. Finishes bright and
clean. Real drinkable and rewarding.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured a clear orange with a beige head. Aroma of floral, earthy tones and malted grains. Seemed almost like a muted pale ale in character. A mild hop bitterness with toasted malts and sweet caramel in the finish.

Tap bottled, 2 weeks travel. Poured a dark amber color with a big fluffy head. Caramel sweet aroma mixing with floral grassy hops. Toasty and bitter on the tongue, very refreshing with a great bitter hop bite. Foamy rolling mouth feel. Great beer, even after it’s extensive travel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange golden pour with a nice lasting white head and fantastic lacing. The aroma is very hops with hints of citrus and pine along with some toasted caramel malts. The flavors is pretty straightforward caramel followed by a nice dose of grapefruit and pine. Did not strike me as an alt at all, but I really liked the nice hop profile.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. A copper colored beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet maltyh with hoppy notes of grass. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and grass as well as light notes of grapefruit. The body is thin. Good for an IPA, but nowhere near an Alt.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft: Pours deep mahogany cloudy red with tiny off white head. Not much aroma, what there is is brown sugar, toffee and fresh hops. Flavor is pretty nice fresh malts and hops. Tastes very fresh and bright. Notes of toffee and some diacetyl butterscotch. I dont think its off just a slight diacetyl from the kind of yeast they are probably using. It adds to the overall candyness of this beer. It also has a lot of toasty and roasted notes with mild bittereness and fruit esters. Almost tastes like an irish stout only not dry. Pretty good.
