3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas of caramel, nuts, a touch of vanilla, subtle apricot, and grass. Dark, clear ruby-amber with a moderately lasting, off-white head. Off-dry, earthy, savory, and bitter, with some lemon rind-like citrus notes, and woody tones, almost oaky. Medium bodied with cleansing carbonation, and finishes with nutty malts, and earthy and citrusy hops.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very mediocre PA. Grass and citrus, but far from being "aggressively-hopped". Light bitterness only, quite fizzy carbonation. Quite smooth enjoyable, preferable to most lagers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A can I picked up at Antenna America. It poured a nice orange copper color with a thick head. The aroma was a dank aroma... I think it was what I have heard referred to as catpiss... the flavor is malty, bitter mid mouth with a funky finish. After warming up a bit that aroma dissipated and it was more of a neutral hop bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a medium to large white head. Sweet malt on the nose, a touch of paper, and a small hop backbone. Medium bodied, sweeter than I’d like, but not cloying at least. Malty, sweet malt, toast, a bit of candied hops. Gentle hop bitterness over lingering sweet malt. Drinkable.

Copper amber color. Did not enjoy this beer, has an almost bleach flavor and very unpleasant aftertaste.

12oz bottle served in glass mug. Pours a lovely amber with a moderate amount of off-white head. Head is short-lived save a partial thin coating. Typical feel for style, with moderate carbonation.
The aroma is mainly hoppy, as expected, but with a slight and undesirable metallic aroma.
T - hoppy with malt presence. Slight smokiness. Bolder taste than expected given aroma.
Overall, well balanced taste, but rather average.
