2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 Bottle Cotteridge Wines. Thoroughly disappointed. Took the plunge against the tides of discontent - Odell’s triumph that is their IPA led me here. Decent nose of mostly sweet fruit - apricot, peach maybe?
Palate was poor - thin with almost a diluted feel.
Taste - Really lacks nuance. The sweet citrus is bold but almost artificial tasting. Leaves a sugar coating feel on teeth - like cheap sweets. Very little malt.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap pour at 3 Squares in a less than pint glass. Crisp quality beer that would fit well in anyone’s stable of pale ales. Little lacing. Great aroma of hops that carries throughout the beer. Not much in terms of complexity but a solid option.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden color with white head. Aromas of hoppy bitterness. This reminds me of a well balanced IPA. It has a little more hop presence up front and a mild malt backbone.
