3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edge. Aroma was slight pine but mainly sweet grains. Flavor also had a slight bitter pine note but sweet bread and grains were the dominate notes for this beer.

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 doesnít 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)

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle from the $10 sampler-12. Clear orange color, thin white head. Overly fruity tasting and somewhat syrupy. Tastes appropriately cheap. A boring IPA, possibly the worst of this style (out of ~20) that Iíve tried yet.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a nice frothy one inch head that left some nice lacing. The nose shows some decent citrusy hops, but thereís a too sweet crystal malt base behind them that makes me think that this isnít going to be great. Nicely bitter, rather surprisingly so even, with some crystal malt but not a terrible amount. Still a little too sweet overall, but itís better than most of the Lionís efforts. Medium bodied, a touch sticky on the back end with fizzy carbonation. Could be better, but itís not bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, screw-top. Caramel malt and a touch of spaghetti sauce in the nose, dough. Pours hazy amber-orange with a soapy beige head. Taste is sweet with mild bitterness, thereís some mild hoppy fruitiness but not much. Tends rather toward bland and faded etoh-transmission vehicle, unfortunately. Slightly floral, a little grassy/even vegetal, full body with a touch of alcohol showing. It does have a firm backbone, but very little flesh.
