3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy, reddish amber appearance with a fairly large off white head and good lacing. Muted, bread-like malt aroma with some citrusy hops catching up near the finish. Earthy, hoppier taste turns a bit more herbal with a touch of citrus and pine in the aftertaste. Enticing but not overwhelming.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I really wanted to like this better. Aroma is faint hops with some brand flakes and grain wandering out... Taste is bitter with notes of grain, cereal, syrupy malt with the hops as an afterthought. Finish is somewhat bitter. Again, I really wanted to like it more, but it just didn’t deliver...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A cloudy, translucent dark honey color with an aroma that has a hit of spices. The flavor also carries the spices with an aftertaste that is slightly hoppy, bitter bite.

Bottle. Dark golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, some caramel and tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - some citrus hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, some caramel and tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - some piney hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and tropical fruitiness, piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. Well hopped fruity IPA. Could be drier and with less caramel. Nice one though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark caramel/golden color with dense off-white head. Aroma is flowery sweet hop, the hop aroma is closer to a Hallertau or Saaz than to an American hop. Taste is more like an American IPA; Bitterness up front- pine, grapefruit, hints of tropical fruits and grasses. Maltyness is noticeable but generic in its flavor and character. Finish is piney bitter and lingers a while. Food pairing is probably critical with this beer- completely different experience depending on what you are eating.
