3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Clear copper with a lasting creamy quarter inch of foam. Nose is toffee, dark fruit and spicy banana. Taste is similar, but has a healthy dose of earthy citrus and woody hops to balance. Medium body is extremely smooth, smoothly carbonated, well balanced and surprisingly, seems to show some alcohol warmth. This one is really different from most APAs out there, almost seems like a ESB, and is by far the best beer I have sampled from this brewery.

A clear amber color with little head, this one has relatively little smell. It’s got a decent hoppy taste to it and comes off very light with little aftertaste.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
From a bottle poured into a pint glass. Light cloudy tan, with a weak aroma. Weak tasting beer with a strong aftertaste. It?s not likely to make the rotation.

Hazy medium amber with a good headwith good lace. Surprisingly good yeasty caramel malt with just enough bittering to keep it under control. Nothing too elegant going on, but drinkable just the same. Pretty well done - worth a second bottle.

Bottle at CVG. Hazy amber, thick beige head, solid lacing. Aroma of caramel and brown bread. Taste is bittersweet caramel. Not bad at all.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy medium brown with a 2 finger tan head. Great lacing.
Smells very floral. Some light biscuit in there.
The taste is very floral with some yeastyness. Moderate bitterness throughout lingering through the finish. A little bit of malt is detectable.
Just an ok beer that I don’t really care about having again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a hazed amber with a fluffy head. The nose is all caramel and bananas. Hops are severely lacking in the nose. Strong notes of caramel in the taste as well, more of the banana and a light metallic note. Sweet and just not good, unfortunately.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft in a weizen glass - pours clear caramel with nice tan head and good lacing. Jose is pine hops. Aroma is just hops. Taste is bitter. Bubbly and slick texture. Medium body. Long and faint finish. Quite simple in flavor but inoffensive.
