2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a pretty standard issue pale ale (not that thatís a bad thing) with floral hops and a fairly strong mineral presence in the nose. There is a good balance of sweetness and bitterness but the bitterness in the finish is too strongly of the grassy/earthy variety for my tastes. This drinks pretty good but is just very average in general w/ the hops being a bit too muted for the style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: total letdown since this brewery comes out with good stuff most of the time. Overly grainy and much like an imperial lager.

12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a clear thinner gold body with an average sized soapy bright white head. Aroma of old wet toast, old caramel, molassess, raisins and white grape juice. Medium to fuller body, milky, soft to average carbonation. Flavor is blah, notes of dough, nuts, raisin, grapes, old caramel and molasses. Not a fan.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Antenna America. Aroma is pine and citrus, lightly fruity. Bit of a stinky bite. Taste is nice and refreshing but think this is getting a first beer boost in my scores. Feels a bit inconsequential. Nice enough though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brewed on 05/28/14. Nose is slick and densely fruity, not vibrant but itís there, soapy with jam and light mineral, some vinous and Smartie (candy) character. Dark, dull copper with lighter golden highlights, but sort of burnished and ugly, still transparent with avg carb and a sudsy off-white head. Taste is dry and heavy with alcohol, lots of hop oil and some juice (but not sweet); bitterness is fairly low, very soapy and cleansing, very heavy full body thatís closer to flat than effervescent. Clean but not pulling me in for another.
