3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark golden body with a creamy fingers worth of head. Resiny hoppy aroma os forthright and well rounded. Flavour is hop dominant with lots of chewy pine resin, malty undertones, and notes of wispy caramel. Medium palate (3+). Not mindblowing but well balanced and very drinkable. Nice beer. Thanks Harry or Paul(?) Probably underrated.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden yellow. Less fruity, more grassy than the amber, a touch vegetal. Less sweet and more bitter than the amber. Nice, but the amber outshone this by far.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Very pale straw colour. Thin white head. Aroma is of sweet caramel malt, soft cookie dough sweetness and a nice light citrus/grapefruit hoppiness. Malts remind me of Flying Dog, but the hops are substantially brighter. Grapefruit and doughy malt flavour. Good balance. It’s on the sweet malty side of the APA category, but it’s quite nice nonetheless.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This amber ale poured with a decent off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a clean pale malt flavor that is a bit fruity, and a nice balance of hop bitterness. A good session beer.

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium amber hue, small head. Nice rich sweet hop aroma of grapes and grapefruit. Flavor is more like a pale ale while the aroma is a fantastic hop carnival like a top-notch IPA. Stale hop taste towards the end and a typical subdued finish could not back up the aroma.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber color beer with a thin white head that disapates quickly. The aroma is of caramel, citrus, and spice and is superb. Flavor is a little sharp and has a citrus/grass hop flavor with a little malt showing through. The finish is dry and as a whole, the beer is very easy to drink.
