2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a pretty hazy copper with a thin head of beige foam. The aroma has a lot of wood and pine character. Somewhat resinous. The taste is pine bitterness. Not awful, but really not good either. Bigger body, thick mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber color with a short off white head. Nose of grapefruit rind and alcohol. There is a lot of caramel sweetness in this balance with a pretty raw hop juice grapefruit/pine flavor. The alcohol is omnipresent and gets a little aggressive as it warms.

Pours a hazy golden to amber color with little head. The aroma is grapefruit and pine, with malt and caramel. The flavor is much yhe same, masks the hogh alcohol very well. Palate is sweet with a bitter finish. And warming on the way down. Very well balanced beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bought a six pack in Spartansberg, SC. Liked the description. Going to stick my neck out a bit, but I think its one of the better Double Pale Ales I’ve had over the years. Love the light amber & hazy color. Of course it has a thin, foamy head due to the 8% gravity. Has sweet aroma of caramel & pine (as they say, "a swift flavor combo of bitter hops & sweets malts) with a hoppy bitterness upfront and a sweeter finish of burnt sugars with caramel in between. Enjoy!

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Grass notes and does have a bite. Can’t really figure if I like this one or not, but see it being comparable to Sweetwater 420.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured as a taster - will re-rate once/if I have a full serving. Pours a hazy amber color. Aroma - mostly malty with some hop notes underneath; caramel really obvious. Taste - alcohol is there and a bit peppery, some citrus/more resin notes from the hops, and malty sweetness underneath. This was okay, but wasn’t something I’d probably go out and buy again.

On tap Taco Mac Cumming. Hazy light ambernwoth a thin foamy ivory head. Aroma of sweet sugars, caramel, and pine. Huge hop bitterness upfront. Boozy on the finish. Definitely warms you up. Nice sweet malt, burnt sugars, and caramel in between.
