3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy orange with a soapy white head. Aromas of some citrus fruits and light malts. Flavor is a bit up front with malts but the hops kick in for the finish. Alcohol isn’t very well hidden but it does do what the label says it will, ring your bell. Overall not bad, but there’s so many better ASAs out there.

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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a medium sized khaki colored head that has solid retention. The aroma has some pine, floral notes, a bit of a caramel malt, some candied sugar, a mix of a lot of things. The taste is really sweet, brown sugar, really off aftertaste. Sorry, bad.
