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.

Light copper pour with a 1 finger, creamy eggshell head. Aroma of pine, caramel, citrus and a little raw sugar. Flavor is caramel, planty hops, raw sugar, pine, earthy hops and citrus hops. Lightish body with a fairly dry, slightly acidic feel troughout and light, but sharp carbonation. Decent.

12 oz can. Copper colored and clear with a light tan head and sticky lacing. Herbal spiced hoppy aroma, with caramel malts. Medium body with a soft creamy feel and nice carbonation. Nicely hopped, bitter and dry with light malt sweetness. Pretty smooth and tasty!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can in Durango. This is a flimsy little beer that is fine when served ice cold after a long day. Otherwise pass on it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Burnt orange colour, one finger thick lightly golden head. Aroma is toasty caramel malt with a bit of cooked peaches. Sweet malty palate, a little stonefruit, with a wash of bitterness that cuts through the finish, with a slight medicinal quality. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer 29 Asheville trip, Thirsty Monk tap. Medium orange appearance. Aroma and flavor matched - caramel malts with a spicy, earthy hop character. Sort of a run of the mill APA. But not bad.

Pretty good APA/IPA. More on the caramel and malty side but with a distinct kick from the hops. I was pleasantly surprised.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden copper with a medium creamy/bubbly off white head that laced. Aroma of tea, light citrus notes, floral hops and a touch of sweet maltiness. Flavor of tea, grapefruit, light caramel and biscuit malt. Really well done pale ale. Love that it’s in a can and I can get it on a regular basis in Kansas!

Can. Pours a very clear amber color with a very thin head. Nose is very hoppy with some great floral notes. Taste is just a tad bitter, but smooth and light. Interesting brew...
