4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smell is luscious, taste is smooth and mild, hoppy. Grapefruit and very mild resin. Round, sweet, very mild but awesome ipa. Right down the middle, appealing, easy to drink and for all occasions and moods. One of the best overall beers I have tried

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle into pint glass: Pours brown-amber with a one finger white head. Aroma of caramel, nutmeg, and pine. Taste is a little spiced up front but not overwhelming followed by lots of cascade hop flavor. Well balanced, not as harsh as some of the west coast IPAs, and quite tasty. Medium to full body, slightly bitter finish, but a really good beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into tulip glass. Head is a light milky off-white color. Translucent but the high carbonation creates the illusion of cloudiness. I cant get over how great it looks. The color is burnt sienna with a slight red tint, more coppery and red than amber; it looks beautiful. The smell is to be expected: biscuit and hops. The hop flavors, pine and tangerine, mix very well with banana bread from the malt. Much better than I was expecting. Very balanced, definitely something I can see myself drinking next to the fire on a cold, winter day.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Appearance: two fingers of slightly tan head, does not diminish quickly, great lacing, copper golden color, pretty cloudy. Aroma: citrus, floral, nuts, caramel, bread, herbs. Palate: light body, sticky texture, average carbonation, bitter and dry finish, lasting. Taste: sweet up front, followed by light hoppiness, building to very bitter lasting finish. Overall, really enjoy this beer, well balanced and the spices are lovely.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red-amber pour with off-white head. Aroma of pine, light citrus, toasted and caramel malts. Flavor is moderate pine with hot toasted grain and residual pine and citrus. Somewhat sticky. Not digging the hot, booze-like tinge to the malt portion of this brew.

Very solid seasonal beer. Out of the bottle... Pours a light Amber color with a cream head. Smells of fresh hops and that flavor definitely comes through. Just deliciously fresh with a great malt body. Just all in all a great ipa.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Y Delyn Wine Bar, Mold. Pours a nice clear amber with a thin slightly beige head. Aroma is honey and copper. Slight hops but didnt really pick much else up. Taste is hoppier than I was expecting, balanced with a nice maltiness. Also picked up notes of nutty bread and caramel. High carbonation, but it definitely suits the beer. Good stuff.
