3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice golden color with a three finger foamy white head. On the nose its toasted malt, little earthy spice and a touch of citrus kissed grassy hops. The palate is clean and bitter with a nice malt backbone that has a touch of caramel sweetness and a grassy bitter mid to late palate. Nice beer a bit pricey for what it is.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Interesting IPA. Lighter in color- yellow with a hint of orange. Not overly hoppy, but it does have a nice flavor. Flavor profile more along the lines of a pale ale. Regardless this is decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours light amber with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of cereal-like malts and floral hops. Flavor about the same with the two not meshing well. Average texture. Sort of a disappointment, like a lot of beers from this series.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent light orange colored body. The almost non-existant aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice subtle lightly hopped citrus and berries with nice sweetness without being too malty. Really a tasty beer and another winner by pretty things.
