3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear rich mahogany with 1/2" off-white head, bushes and trees of lace. Taste is rich caramel malt hiding behind a strong hop presence. The malt persistently shows, finally outlasting the hops at the end. A terrific 4.4% abv brew, easy to drink, alone, or with food.

Poured from a bottle. Clear orange/copper with offwhite head. Plenty of hops on the nose- citrusy and floral. Taste is sharply bitter, resiny. Malt takes a backseat. Body is light with crisp carbonation. Long bitter finish. At 4.4% and plenty of a flavor, definitely sessional. Nice beer, not your typical amber given the heavy hop presence.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 12 fl. oz. screen printed bottle. dark amber pour with a big cream colored head that does not go away. Great clarity. The aroma is of citrus, pine, grass, and other vibrant hops more so than any malt biscuit malt character. It is there but subtle. The body is medium. The taste is very full with its caramel malt character that is usurped by the floral and grassy hops. It just had something unique going on.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein rötlichbraunes Bier mit schöner stabilen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig fruchtig, exotische Früchte. Geschmack sehr fruchtig herb nach Mandarine und Grapefruit, süß, trocken fruchtiger Abgang.

Smells like a bit of HOPS! Looks good with very fast rising carbonation, taste is bitter but smooth as well, really like the texture it works with the taste, great beer for the hoppers!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 6-05-2009 (Bottle) This beer forms a medium sized ivory head, transparent orange body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, pine and citrus hops. The taste is grapefruit, bitter, caramel malt, citrus and pine hops. The palate is dry and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer has a very hoppy aroma and flavor and is a beer for hopheads.

I love this brewery. Crisp amber pour with a off-white head. Malts, biscuit, citrus, pine, slight grapefruit. Medium bodied with good carbonation and very refreshing. Almost a great balance of sweet and bitter, however the hops do dominate. Not a negative at all for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Antenna America. It pours a great clear amber brown with a thick fluffy beige head that leaves behind decent lacing. Citrusy hop flavors over a caramel malt aroma. Very similar flavor to the Tall Poppy as my wife stated. Basically a citrusy hop leaning towards lemon then counterbalanced by slight caramel maltiness. I think the Tall Poppy had a better malt body but this beer’s citrus hop flavors appeal to me more than the grapefruit I got from the tall poppy. Neither really clicked with me I guess these hoppy browns/reds aren’t my thing. Decent but not great, I like the low ABV which makes this an everyday kind of beer.
