Sixer sale at Beerworld Kingston! A lovely red in the glass. Decent head. Crisp and potent this intensely hopped beer is well balanced by just enough malt to make the body very smooth and built but not overbearingly heavy. Good straight from the can as well.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a hazy amber with medium frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is pine and grapefruit. Medium mouth, rye, citrus, bitter finish, good.

Smells terrible, there’s some weird garbagy odor to it. Doesn’t taste bad, caramel and pine notes are dominant. A little thin on the palate for me. I probably won’t buy this again.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours amber-copper with a one finger off white head with pretty good lacing. Aroma is of citrus rinds, pine, tropical fruits, rye bread, floral hops, caramel and toffee sweet malts, and some light dankness. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi-creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, semi dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, hoppy, yet still somewhat well balanced amber.

Draft at Main Street in Exton. A hoppy beer for an amber. It’s got rye, pine, floral, bread, malt, hop, caramel, toffee notes. Not a bad beer by any means but it feels consumed and misidentified.

From a can. Great sessionable well made IPA, not crazy hoppy, just enough to be interesting. Good stuff.

Energy can from andrew. Smells like pine cleaning product. Less bad in flavor. Just a waste of time.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber pour, soapy head retention. Sweet malt and ripe nectarine meld into a similar note on the nose, some subtle pine presence. Flavor is pretty watered, rindy, bready, flowery, lingering bitterness. Are my taste buds failing? No super distinct flavor charactaristics pop out. I noticed this with Resin too. A bit of a watered body. Not as good as I remember, but alas, palettes change and so do us all. Nose is enjoyable, drinks easy and is a very decent hoppy amber. Flavors are a bit too blurred to aquire a higher rating from me. Just try it, I’m being a dick.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nicely balanced, but not super distinct ale. Subtle hints of caramel on the nose, with citrus-piney hop finish. Silky on the palate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky copper with a medium sized, off white head. Slight tropical hop aroma, bananas and melon with a hefty toffee/caramel, malt dominant. Slight pine and lemon bitterness bite but it’s underpinned by a rather pleasent caramel/toffee malt backbone which makes for a reasonably well balanced beer. Thick bodied and really heavy mouthfeel, quite contrasting to the reasonably bright citrus flavours.
