1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Cloudy amber body with two finger head. Spice fruit aroma. Sour dark fruity taste that feels sour on the tongue. The taste is a turn off and I’m disappointed by this one.

very nice hoppy aroma. Unfortunately I think that the test doesnt quite live up to the aroma.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Caramel malt, sweet orange hops, and a light oily petrolium type aroma. Hazy amber with a large off-white head. Herbal hops, citrus peel, and biscuity malt flavor, as well as band-aid, which I suspect is related to that oily aroma. Medium body, soft carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden orange color with a solid off-white head. Aroma is like a fresh bag of hops. Taste is balanced with a fresh hop forward pine character followed by a decent malt body and a slight bitter earthy finish; a pretty good IPA.

Craft beer advent calendar day I lost track... Pours a hazy copper with a small spotty white head. Aroma is citrus, spicy, resin, fruity, caramel, residual and light alcohol. Flavour is earthy, citrus, pine, resin, caramel, residual sugars and a dark-burnt toast in the finish. Long lingering bitterness of the harsh variety into the after taste.

Rating #821 - December 11, 2013 - Beer 11 in the Craft BeerAdvent Calendar Clear amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hops, roasted malt, and is quite earthy. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of caramel. Finish is dry but balanced. Still has a weird vegetable oversteeped tea texture like the other Newport beer in the calendar.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Advent day 11. Was annoyed to have a duplicate brewery in the first two weeks, especially since the amber was by far the worst of the previous 10. This was worse. Aroma was of hops and burnt metal. Taste was overpoweringly of burnt metal. Awful aftertaste.
