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!

On tap at Daily Growler, UA. Copper orange pour, white-ish ring. Aroma of toffee, caramel. Tastes of sweet malt, little toasty. I’m not at all an amber fan, but this was non-offensive for the style. 6.6

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Nice beer, flavorful. Not too heavy on the hops, as expected. A little bit of caramel, nice malt backbone with a little bit of a bite.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber pour with a frothy head. Malt aromas are overpowered by the hop presence. Big hop flavors (almost tastes like an IPA) keep the biscuit and caramel malts from even having a shot at showing up. Way too hoppy.

A pretty nice amber, maybe similar to say CCB tocobaga? Mildly hoppy but well balanced.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small foamy head that fades to a bubbly ring and leave some minor webbing. Aroma is big on biscuits and bread with hints of flowers and toffee. Tastes pretty biscuit-y and incredibly dry. Big floral and earthy hops in the bitter finish. I really don’t like how dry and earthy this is. Makes it pretty hard to drink.
