2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark golden color with a small foamy off-white head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was caramel and faint floral and fruity hops. The flavor was bitter and dryish with hints of caramel, floral hops, fruity hops and pepper. Medium finish and body. Eh.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
I love reading a beer’s commercial description before I drink it. This beer is one that makes me think, "did some marketing guy write this description without even trying the beer?" Tastes like a skunked European green bottle lager. Sweet syrup in the front with an astringent medicinal aftertaste. Flavors are hard to pick out other than those mentioned and the beer was a muddled mess. Sweet at first and nasty in the finish. Decent carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Sugar Moms. Clear dark amber with a pillowy head. Well blended tangy hops. Ginger fruits. Better than expected. Still a narrow range of flavors, but well worth a try.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear orange and bright, moderately active, bubbles rising to to a nice cushiony head. This doesn’t put much of an aroma, maybe just a hint of tropical fruit. It drinks with a bit of a spicy edge, earthy and ripe, actually pretty good. I think this is underrated and is a victim of prejudice to the source. (#4572, 4/22/2012)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The last stop of my shitty ticker beer tour this evening. Orange copper with small white head. Nose is pine, herbal, citrus, grain. Flavor is similar, good balance between bitter and grains, but both are rather dull. Sorta soapy and peppery finish.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a hazy copper color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of resin hops with nutty, toasted malts. The taste is bitter resin hops, some citrus and pale malts. Medium bodied. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy dirty orange with sediment, light head and spotty lace. The taste is semi-sweet caramel malt with a light hop finish. The two sides actually blend rather nicely, creating a good balance in an easy to drink brew. Better than anticipated.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a dark orange-amber color with a modest, foamy white head with moderate cling and retention. Its aroma featured a mix of citrus, pine, and earthy hops, and a touch of malt. The beer had a bitter taste with orange and grain characteristics and was a touch sour too. The body was wet with low carbonation and fairly smooth without a dominant mouthfeel.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Not too bad. It’s a little below average in aroma and taste, but the appearance and palate are well off. The aroma is just a little weak for my liking, and the taste was too malty in the finish for me, the hops falling flat. I want hops when I pick up an IPA.
