2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Party Source. The bottle had some weird crustys around the cap after I removed it so that is not a good sign. The beer pours a slightly luminous orange-amber color with absolutely no head or lacing. Also not a good sign. Light malt and pine in the nose. Medium-bodied and fruity with some toasted malt and piney hops flavor, however the flavors are buried by tartness. The finish is tart fruit with a touch of sweet malt. I have to conclude I got a bad bottle, but will need to try again to be sure.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very fruity aroma - apricot and cherry malt aroma. Reddish orange color with small head. Apricot and orange malt flavor with light hops finish. Extremely fruity especially for the style - more like a cream ale than the typical APA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Mostly clear, dark amber ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Nose of toasted caramel malt and earthy and citrusy hops. Sweet, malty, caramel and biscuit flavors up front; shadowed by moderate earthy, mineral hop bitterness. Medium-bodied with a chewy mouthfeel and intermediate carbonation. Bitter-sweet, caramel finish. Kudos to xnoxhatex for floating this bottle my way!

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.
