3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Where and how: tasting, bottle 650 ml
Aroma: medium plus intensity, slightly earthy, even metallic. Sweet malts and alcohol character followed.
Top: large, white cap with some lace
Base: hazy amber-gold
Palate : medium lighter body, dry. Finish fades quickly.
Taste: rather bland. Forgettable and with its rather thin body that had metallic hints blended with caramel like sugars do not help. Side hop character at least was decent.
other notes with flaws, but in the end its an OK brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Luminous peachy amber color, 1" thick frothy hop-pocked heavy cream head. Floral and fruity hop notes hover about the bouquet. Notes of peaches and pineapple arise. Similarly this medium-bodied ale is dominated by floral hop notes, with rivulets of fruits, including pineapple. Light bitterness, gives way to a fruity hop finish.

650 ml bottle at beerbistro. Pours a cloudy orange/amber colour with moderate-sized, lacey whiteish head. Aroma is spicy, citric hops with lots of earthiness and a little graininess. Flavour is hop forward with strong spicy notes and some citrus, loads of earthiness and a little caramel. Slick mouthfeel. Nice one.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with an enormous overflowing foamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was gritty with sour pine and citrus. The flavor was sour caramel, pine, bitter and astringent with a note of tobacco underneath. Long finish. Medium body but overcarbonated. Not good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beer Bazaar. An orangey-amber pour with a bit of an off-white head. Aroma has heavy citrus and pine, with some light malt underneath. Quite dry hopped and layered. Taste is of dank citrus, orange rinds, some caramel, some sprucy pine. A bit of apple, interestingly, showed through. Medium to full bodied and syrupy. Finishes thickly bitter, with some apple/fruity sweetness trying to hang in for balance. One of NHs better ones. 13.7

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Deep amber brew with a dense and foreever lasting creamy head. Nice aroma of earthy spicy hops. Taste is sweet malt up front with a modest hop profile emerging. Never really hits critical mass in the hops department. and while everything here is great it falls short of being a standout in the very competitive IPA field.
