3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is one of those beers you arent really sure what they are going for. A copper color on this one. The aroma contains some grapefruit, lemons, but also a bit of maltiness like caramel and biscuit showing. The flavor is sweet and malty with some grapefruit, lemons, toffee, and caramel. Not horrible but not great either.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle, from trade with 5000. Ok aroma, Fruity, odd funky sharp grape, cardboard. Brownish orange color, small head, minor lacing. Bitter flavor, like aroma, had that funk again, some hop bite. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, sour bitter finish. Eh, maybe a bad bottle or just a weird one

Bottled. Blind tasting. Pours a cloudy copper with a full tan head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit. Medium body and carbonation. Taste starts lightly sweet with oranges, pine, grapefruit, and resin at the end. This is apparently an English Strong Ale that wanted to be an IPA.

From a 22oz. bottle--Poured a deep amber-chestnut body with a moderate white head. Sweet, bready fruity nose. Unbalanced sticky mildly infected presence. This beer needs some retooling.
