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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Pours amber with an off white head. Smells of rotting vegetables, some caramel, some earthy hints. Tastes earthy with some peas and herbal spicy hints on the finish.

Good suggestion from Chipalsa. Bottle pour ---> tulip. Nose is oddly tropical with a unique fruitiness that is almost unidentifiable. Papaya? Some caramel malts and sweetness with some slight hop in there. Different for an APA. Tastes pretty similar with a retained fruitiness/sweetness. Not so much hop, but it is there. Good and worth a try because this beer has flavors that are difficult to put into words.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Clear darker orange color, minimal off-white head leaving spots of lace. Odd malty-fruit aroma, something specific in the nose I can’t quite put my finger on (like a metallic fruit taste). Some caramel malt. Smooth, crisp, and drinkable. Kind of bitter-sweet in a dark way. Unique, but not in an entirely awesome way.

Draft: the first time I had this, I thought it was just an emrican pale ale, and a mediocre one at that. Very time now, that I get the pleasure, I find new appreciation for it. It pours A dark copper color with a creamy tan head. Aromas are that of toffee, roasted malt, and some nuttiness. It has a floral fruitiness in the flavor profile that I just love. Awesome beer from a great brewery.
