3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2013 A nice reddish copper ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, caramel malt with light floral and catty hops, OK. In mouth, sweet fruity caramel malt with solvent notes, faint grassy hops, oily mouth feel, a bit of burned character, OK but cloying too.

Copper with a white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, caramel malts. Medium body. Flavor has strong and lasting pine and citrus notes, sweet caramel malts back them up. I guess there isn’t a lot going on, but it’s a nice and tasty beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A basic caramelized, piney and fruity Double IPA. A brewpub beer that doesn’t taste fresh
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear dark golden body topped by a small beige head
In long: Medium intensity piney hops nose. Body is a bit sticky, oily sticky caramel, a mix bag of fresh fruits. Nourishing body. Somehow in mouth the hops were a lot more fruity and less piney than in the aroma. Bitterness of medium intensity. Some notes of dank wet basement lowers my score. Another meh beer from Nodding Head, this brewer is a perfectionist when it comes to brewing flawed beers

This poured a darker yellow to almost orange color with a white head. Aroma was almost all just pine an citrus hops, but they dont really stick out in your face, they’re just the only thing there. The taste is much the same as the aroma, watery hop water, citrus and pine with light pale malt. Eh.
