3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Superstar Beverage - Huntington, 9/30/14, Bottled 9/4/14
Aroma: The nose is fairly light, with some clean resiny hops, toasted bread, and a little caramel
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear copper-orange color with froth of beige head and heavy lacing
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, bready, leading to a mid-plus bitter, clean, hoppy finish
Palate: The body is fairly light, smooth and rather drinkable, with a soft carbonation, and a dry finish
This one mixes the resiny hops nice with the clean pale malts, not to mention that it is a heck of a good looking beer in the glass. At 5.5% I could drink a ton of this beer. This is another nice one from Spider Bite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Murky amber pour with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The bouquet is a hoppy blend of tropical fruits and melons with a touch of pine. Full-bodied and abrasive with busy carbonation. The flavor offers no identifiable malt essence, but provides some very nice, fruity hop bitterness. Finishes crisp, lightly bitter, raspy, and then dry. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

Pour is transparent copper with yellowish white bubbly head. Nose is light, pine and rust with a note of grain. Taste is light also, faint grain, piney hop and a faint citrus. Strong carbonation and a light body. Slick on the palate and a bit watery.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a tall .5 liter glass. Cloudy, deep amber color, abundant foamy white head that clings to the glass all the way down. Great dry ale flavor with a large back bone of hops that is a mouthful from beginning to end. Very satisfying! Just might keep the hop freaks happy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Fiery golden, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Hoppy nose, slightly dank and wet.   Strong pithy start, slight sweetness, hoppy, with a touch of floral notes.   Tastes better than it leads on with the nose.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Somewhat of a stale hop exit.   Moderate example, not too bright, but decent enough.   Just needs to be brighter, more vibrant.
