3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a quiet true amber color with a quick uprising of foam that then dwindles away. There’s a light malty aroma with a hint of spruce. This drinks with a decent woody hoppiness and a balanced backdrop. So far the better Moerlein option among the sampler pack I bought. (#3969, 8/22/2010)

Chattanooga, Tn. - Riverside Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Dark orange pour, nice off-white head. Solid, patented spruce aroma. Nice bitter grapefruit notes with just a bit of caramel to balance it out, but tends to be a bit one dimensional. Slightly stinging mouthfeel. Overall decent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to pint. Looks alright; dark for an IPA though. Smells and tastes malty and hoppy, but mildly; more like a hoppy Amber. Average on the palate. Meh.
