3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Canned June 2, 2015 enjoyed July 25, 2015 in a tulip/snifter.
Look - Amber, orange body. Stone head with medium bubbles. Blotchy lacing.
Smell - Hoppier than a normal amber. Pineapple. Malt.
Taste - Pine. Spice. Lemon. Orange. Malt. Dairy.
Feel - Medium. Between creamy and carbonated. Not a lot of alcohol taste.
Overall - MadTree mainstay. I have tried before but still not what I look for in the style. Try it for a change up from stouts and IPAs, but get a pretty hoppy beer anyway.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can, canned on 11/07/2014. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy orange/amber with about an inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and there’s a lot of lacing. The brew smells like citrusy (grapefruit, citrus peel) and floral hops, and caramel and bready malt. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there’s also a bit of orange noticeable too. Great balance between the hoppy and malty flavors. There’s also a nice hoppy bitter finish, too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit coating and is well carbonated. I liked this brew, I might have to pick up a sixer of this soon. Got to try it at $1.67 a can, definitely worth picking up!
