2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear amber with a head that is just off white. Aroma is a blend of floral hops and bread. But this could be generous, as it leans towards a neutral. I might get a bit of caramel in there actually. The taste is much more of the same. Not much really to note except that there is a really yeasty flavor that is prevalent throughout. Thankfully, there isn’t really any aftertaste, although that yeastiness does linger slightly. Surprisingly, this is light in body considering that this is a little stronger. The texture is thin and slick. I don’t like to be rude, but to call this something seasonal in any season, especially the winter, is kind of insulting.

12oz can via trade. Deep amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, biscuits and herbal tea. Flavor is biscuit malt, medium hop bitterness and some caramel. Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty good, kind of a cross between an ESB and Pale.

Pours a dark amber with some foam cling to the sides. Lots of fruity aromas that die off quickly leaving only pine. Starts with a nice mix of malts and hops. The hops being more dominate. The bitterness takes over right away and then into the finish. A fun beer to start the winter season with.

On draft at freshcraft, denver. The aroma is lightly hoppy for a pale. It looks good. The taste is maltier for an ipa, so i like it. Overall, a decent ipa.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, orange-brown pour with a small, white head. The aroma has good malty notes of caramel and bread along with some pine and wood. It has a light body with slightly oily texture and average carbonation. It like the bittersweet taste that is followed by a slightly more bitter finish.

Pours a clear dark orange with a thin white head. Doesn’t look very pale! Fruity and malty aroma. Flavor is the same with the fruity hops and malt well balanced. Finish is bitter and smooth with the caramel flavors. Lightly carbonated. Very nice beer.
