3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks again for this brew, Chipalsa. Nose is floral, citrusy hops, some dankness, and a light malt aroma. Reminded me a bit of Evil Genius from B. Nektar. Taste follows pretty well with a bread and grain aftertaste, a touch of honey, and a ton of hop goodness. Definitely drinks like a hoppy pale ale.

Bottle. Pours light orange with white head. Smells fruity. Tastes very fruity with a lagerish finish. It’s a a nice transition beer for lager lovers to ale lovers, and vice versa. Good.

Pours a clear orange yellow with a thick foamy off white head. Aroma of deep spicy citrusy pepper like hops. Taste is mildly sweet with an onslaught of citrusy hops. Mouthfeel is thick finish is clean. Interesting. A sixer maybe.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This aroma is pure hops, but a distinct undercurrent of spruce comes through. When poured, this beer is orange in color, and there is a medium head that dissipates quickly. When sipped, the beer is of a medium bitterness and slightly salty, and the combination of this beer’s abrupt finish, average carbonation, medium body, and sticky texture do make this beer a mouthful.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark gold-orange with a high, fine-grained, cream-colored head. Nose is herbal and floral, but also has a vanilla-like note. A lot of toffee-like sweetness on the open, with hops citrus and some bitterness on the midpalate. More citrus on the close, and a very pleasant smooth, rich mouthfeel. Not a lot of carbonation. Quite nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 This one is a winner for sure. From the bottle poured a clean yellow body with a thick sea-foam head. Aromas were spicy and pungent of west coast hops and pine, seriously nice floral smell! The taste was full of bitter hops, pineapple, honey and light lemongrass. Most definitely one of Sam Adams’ best. I loved this beer and hope they get smart and go with 6-packs!
