COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For this special release, we wanted to brew a flavorful winter IPA that captured the aroma of the season. This brought us to juniper berries, which add a slightly sweet, piney character. Complemented by citrus notes from American hops, this balanced IPA will brighten the holidays. Cheers!

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of April 2014. It pours orange-copper with a lingering off-white foamy head. Busy carbonation. The aroma is delightful with roasted malts and juniper berries of course with a solid floral hop note kicking in too. The body is medium. The taste tends to bring out the IPA bitterness more than the aroma might suggest as it lingers at the end. I didnít love it but I kind of liked it.

Pours a clear amber with a thick frothy head. Aroma floral with piney and light citrus notes. Taste is bright and citrusy with pine and peppery bitterness. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle - pours very clear amber with white head. Nose is berry and citrus. Refreshing and goes down easy leaving a mildly bitter taste and some sweetness. Light to medium body. Decent.

Aurelius (4376) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Part of the 2013 Winter Favorites mixpack. Great label, the usual Sam longneck. Clear, orangey beer. Buttery, AIPA aroma -- most of them smell sprucey anyway. Mineral, woody, dry, a little doughy, implied blueberries, evergreen. Medium heavy bittering. Woody, bitter finish. Interesting. Walmart.

Bottle; copper type color with a frothy head. Aroma of NW hops, fruit, caramel, and earthiness. Fairly crisp flavor, some fruit and earthiness. Pretty easy to drink, but a bit lacking overall.

Nice amber color with light head. Did not find any hint of juniper but the taste was crisp. Not a heavy IPA but light and rather enjoyable flavor.

It did not have much of an Aroma. It has a pleasant amber hue. I did not find a "berry" taste to this beer. It has mild grapefruit flavor which is not sweet or bitter just in the middle. It does have a very strong pinenut taste. It has a bitter finishes which lasts. This was one of my least favorites in the pack.

Bottle. Smells a little malty, pours orange with no head but a little lace. Taste follows the smell mostly, with something I canít place (the juniper, maybe?). Bitter aftertaste hangs around longer than Iíd like. Not bad though.

Aroma is fruity, kinda dry and sharp. Taste is malty, with a strong slightly bitter finish.
