2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a fairly dark brown with a moderate off-white head. Nose is very malty, with just a hint of caramel in there. Taste is a little bitter, but awfully malty. Just OK, IMHO.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle. Pour is a big bold reddish color with 2 fingers of a thick foamy tan head. The aroma is malty and hoppy with pine and citrus notes. Mouth follows suit with a some caramel thrown in. This has a big bitter finish. I was hoping this would compare to Nugget Nectar...but its not that bad.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is very hoppy with pine and citrus hops. The malt is almost syrupy. The appearance is deep amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a papery bitter finish. The palate is average. Overall a decent beer but itís too astringent.

this is a strong beer with a massive bite at the end. the hops are very straight forward. it brings the flavors of strong malts with slight nuttiness and massive piny hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big, fluffy, ivory head on a clear, medium-dark maroon beer. Appearance dings for the twistoff bomber - thatís just like flipping a bird at homebrewers everywhere. Pedestrian label, foil top. Diacetyl dominates the otherwise tangy, tannic APA aroma. Sometimes it was a bit perfumy. Frooty beer. Plum/sloe, sweet, citrus gel flavors of tea, wood and orange peel. Prominent tangerine notes in the finish. Medium body, brothy mouthfeel with a citrus pith bitterness at the end. New Leaf Market.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
At first taste off the tap the beer this beer was delicious; however, right now Iím drinking from the growler I had them fill up so thatís what Iím rating it off of. This beer at first smell has an sediment aroma and makes your tounge salivate. Then when you taste it there is a malt kinda IPA palate. It is a little bitter but overall I would recommend this beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber split with Anndiesel. Unfiltered burgundy-red-orange, glowing. Foamy off-white/beige head. Interesting balance of an aroma, from cherry wood amber malt tones to a menthol citrus hop edge. A pretty decent and enjoyable beer, but the choice of hops maybe just doesnít work here...or something. Cooling and tropical essence of the Simcoe hop interacts awkwardly with the big caramel and amber malt tones. You could call this an English Barleywine maybe. Interesting and unique, but not that well executed.
