3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with nice white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, some lemon, touch of some odd stale veggie and cardboard notes when cold, but as it warmed it turned into more spicy and old hops. Taste is a mix of slight spice, grain, biscuit, bread, hints of grass, touch of cardboard and old hops, finishing fairly bitter, slightly dry.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Where and how: bottle 355 ml
Aromafruity citrus feel. Plenty of caramel sweetness, I would say tad too much. Late raw bitterness behind. This could be set up in better way.
Top: large frothy white top, sparse lace. Presentable.
Base: fine haze on amber plain.
Palate : medium full bodied, finer carbonation.
Taste: Front noted by caramel sweet malts wrapped by citrus bitters. A bit chaotic in set up.
Other notes Sam Adams can do better.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
3/3/13. 12oz bottle from Proof in Tallahassee. Clear copper pour with a nice white head that fades and laces surprisingly well. Rich hop aroma with plenty of citrus and dank with some pine and caramel and doughy almost pilsner malts. Lighter flavor with caramel and doughy malts and a touch of citrus. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Fiery straw, clear, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Pale hop nose, but also a
noticeable grassiness.   Not too strong either.   Smooth grassiness up front, very little hop bite.   Body and
mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Feels a bit chewy.   I was expecting a bit more hop bite, but its not there.
A littel musty on the finish, but remains strong with its grassiness.   Very smooth, and very chewy.   This
one needs a bit more hop bite to balance out the chewiness.   Otherwise not bad.
