2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma was not inspiring - did not get the juniper, maybe a very light hint of citrus. Color was golden and clear, soapy foamy head, lasted for a while, coated the glass nicely. The flavor - very heavy bitterness, it seemed to me to mask anything else. The juniper flavor shows up very late - well after I finished the bottle. It was OK, would not go out of my way for.

Cloudy yellow orange small white head. Spicy and citric hops aroma with some juniper berries touch in the background. Moderate sweet with medium hoppy bitterness, light spicy and grainy notes. Light-medium bodied. Ok.

Nice head, clear, smell of lemon. Note of juniper going of very quickly. Bitterness on the palate and not only the tongue.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Aroma typical American, resiny, some caramel. Clear golden colour. Taste is once again resiny and caramely. Plain, uninteresting pale ale with not a hint of juniper. Otherwise okay beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange coloured beer with a weak head and light carbonation.
Mouty sweet smell with caramel and honey (thou that’s probably the juniper).
Good balance with the honey/juniper dominating with a watery base. Subtle alcoholic touch. Some caramel.
Bit too mouty for my taste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber poured into a fat stemmed flute. The initial aromas are quite bright, sweet fruit - namely ripe berries with some tropical notes - along with pie crust, honey, and a touch of a "woodsy" note. It pours a clear orange honey color with a creamy / foamy white head that retains a big puffy island and leaves a solid layer of puffy lace. It’s a bit more bitter than sweet, but both sit at about medium levels. The texture is oily with a moderate amount of fizzy carbonation and a medium body. The finish is primarily grass and pine with some tropical fruit and caramel. It’s dry, crisp, and clean with an aftertaste that’s spruce and/or herb with some sugary scone bread.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours light clear yellow with medium head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, pineapple, caramel. Taste is malty, honey, herbal, some solid bitterness. The juniper offers a nice contrast but can be hard to make out sometimes. The APA part however is excellent. Would have again.
