3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Oh, I get to be the fourth person to rate a beer from here, on tap: Slightly hazy with a rocky head and very good lace. The nose displays a light strawberry and grapefruit ester, moderate piney hops, heather and flowery, slightly soapy as well. The taste starts with a nice bittersweet balance of fresh leafy hops and bready malts. Citric and earthy as well. The feel is refreshing and lightly metallic on the finish. A nice solid brew and surprisingly good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber beer with a sticky white head that left sheets of lace. Big orange and tropical fruit nose. Sweet beer with some white sugar and caramel notes. Lots of hops with orange peel, apricot, red grapefruit and some pineapple. The finish adds some pine to all the citrus, but the burps are mostly grapefruit. Maybe a little thin, but it is tastey.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orangy amber color, off white head. Hoppy aroma, light malt. Malt is muted in the flavor by the hops and it makes for an unbalanced beer. Medium bodied, bitter finish. Not all bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Thin mouthfeel. Hops overpowering the malt. Alcohol is apparent although not overwhelming. Ruddy orange color. Hop aroma. A little tweaking and this could be a nicely balanced IPA.
