2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle pours a lightly hazy caramel amber with some sudsy, lacing white head. Nose is ok, citrus peel, blood orange, a little hay, a little dusty, grapefruit zest. Flavor is the same, something a bit like Orval which makes me think this is either an old bottle or slightly infected, heavy blood orange, dried lemon peel, a little ginger. Medium bodied, dry finish. Something a bit off.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from jtclockwork, thanks James! Pours a cloudy, copper-gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy and foamy, dirty white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has a bready caramel sweetness with a good amount of grapefruit and melon. Fairly grassy with some florals and maybe a touch of toast. Flavor is similar. Lots of grassy, somewhat herbal grapefruits with a slight melon floral. Decent bready caramel malt backing with a touch of toast towards the end as this finishes very dry with a medium-high bitterness, but a light caramel to keep things in check for the most part. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid pale ale. Fairly bitter and dry with a good amount of grassy grapefruits and florals as well as a lightly toasted, bready caramel malt backing. Not bad.

12oz from the bottle. Sent to me as an extra from jtclockwork... I’m impressed. I popped it while updating my cellar tonight... and after not rating anything for over a year, this is what brought me back. A very nice Pale with a fresh hopped, citric finish. I’ll have to try more of their products.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of James. Pours a red/amber color with lots of head. Aroma is slightly pine-ish. Kind of thin. Taste is light and hoppy. A little thin in the body, but very drinkable. May be an older bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 Bottle with james, this one had to have been a little old so I need to try again when I can get it on tap or when it has a bottled on date. Notes were rusty pennies and copper, caramel, bitter hops going south, not memorable. Had a fresher bottle and the hops and tang were delicious. Nice bitter finish with a clean hop presence.
