3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I got this in the limited edition YEAST HOIST ceramic bottle. It was good if a little more citrusy than I’d expect. Good beer but I wonder how much of the $11 price is tied into the fancy packaging. Hey, it worked to get my attention and buy it so I guess you can’t argue with that.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy amber, particulate/sediment is clearly visible. Had a huge head.
Aroma was a nice fruity hoppy mix.
The flavour is of alcohol, but the fruity notes balance it nicely, masking the bitterness of the alcohol. The overall flavour wasn’t as complex as I’d hoped, but still as nice brew.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I wasn’t too impressed. Came in a ceramic bottle. The long skinny neck caused problems with smooth pouring, possibly resulting in a slightly more flat beer than it is intended to be: very little carbonation with extremely small bubbles. Not a flavor I appreciated either. Too unremarkable, barely any hoppiness, all too sweet for me.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Overall I was unimpressed. Definately not a bad beer, but did not seem to be enough malts or hops to overcome the taste of alcohol. If I was not in Georgia I would have sworn this thing was 10%.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
The golden color and white head were up to snuff but the overall impression was not a 5 star wow. A sweeter,malt flavor with a hint of fruit but subdue. Carbonation made the palate go flat. While the flavor was good it was not an oustanding and certainly not a value per once. Willing to pay for a well crafted and unique product but not this one.

Ceramic bottle from beergeek.biz. Large head, but overall light carbonation. Complex flavor that changes from the tip of the tongue to the back of throat. Strong caramel flavor in the middle. I love this. Will definitely seek it out again.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I have sampled this beer several times. I never realized that the %abv was so high. Fruity and slightly bitter, I am more impressed now that I know that the %abv is so high.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The nose is flowery and promising. But the taste is so mild, it’s almost non-existent after the big scents. Left me asking "Am I crazy, or is there no flavour?"

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light cloudy golden amber color with yeast visible in the pour. Had a nice white head that disipated quickly. Has notes of carmel and honey but they are overpowered by the bitterness. Overall not a bad beer, but not memerable except for the bottle.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice white head and golden color. Starts off bitter but leaves citrus at the end. A nice easy drink.
