3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Burnt orange pour, white head. Nose is citrus with a nice malty backbone. Smooth, oily from the hops, crisp bready finish from the lager yeast.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I wasn’t sure what style this was but assumed it was an IPA, and I was more or less right. Definitely better than a standard pale lager, so don’t even put it in that classification. What you get here is a crisp, clean, easy-drinking but ultimately average beer lacking any real distinction. It’s not going to take the beer world by storm but it is a perfectly fine mainstream pale ale--a bit softer in the hops than most IPAs, I’d suggest. Bottle.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013 Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. The smell was fantastic with a strong earthy scent. Every time I brought the glass up to taste I enjoyed the smell. Not much head but decent lacing. Nice gold color. Drinks easy with a lingering hoppyess. I canâ€™t pick out flavors yet, but itâ€™s good!

Very bitter but not dry, which somewhat balances it.

Amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit citrusy and tropical. A bit of kiwi and some light orange and mango citrus. Juicy and tasty with a lingering bitterness. I like the hop profile they have going on here - clean and tasty. There’s a bit of malt sweetness in here as well. Pretty nice brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: perfect amber & copper with exceptional clarity from head to toe. Foamy, white head reduces quickly to a thin skin that lasts for a while, leaving extremely spotty lacing. Aroma is light, with bits of orange peel, vegetal & leafy hops, light white pepper, mild onion notes, grass, and some steel-tinted caramel. Faint citric notes throughout the aroma as well. Taste is crisp & snappy with lots of lemon and grapefruit pith up front, leaving a nice bitter bite on the tongue. Lemon & orange zest, leaves, grass, and a touch of pine. Mild back-end peppery spice and light onion notes, though not off-putting. A touch of balancing sweetness from the borderline caramel-tasting Munich malts; finish is still dominated by fading hop bitterness. Pretty good option for a hoppy session beer.

I'm willing to try any innovation Uncle Steed introduces me to. This one is especially relaxing when the house is overflowing with stress. Way to go Sam!

Pours a orange straw color with a white head. Aroma is pine and citrus. Nice clean taste of orange, lemon, and pine needles and a touch of sweetness. Thin to medium body which I wasn’t expecting and small to medium carbonation. Real good from SA.

Clean and easy drinking mainly because there isn’t much taste. I guess you could easily slam a bunch if you wanted.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours crystal clear, rich gold, effervescent, with a strong, frothy off-white head. Nose has tangerine, melon, pine needles. Light sweet flavor with decent piney hop character, along with moderately dry pale malts, melon, grapefruit, mildly pithy citrus. Light bodied with average carbonation. Reasonably well balanced to finish, some oily hops, dry pine, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon rind. Not bad at all.
