2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orang/Yellow/Slight red depending on how the light hits it. Head is frothy and about one finger high. Aromas of sourdough, malt, not nearly enough hops, some citrus oreange. Flavor is thin and watery, weak oranges, even weaker hops. Leaves the back of the throat dry. Nice lacing.

Poured a clear amber color with a medium white head. Malty aroma with light hop, caramel, and some paper. Caramel flavor, light hop, light bitter finish, and a little fruity. Everything about the beer is low keyed.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lovely orange; medium, white head; lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is a bit weak--mostly malts, lightly floral; barely caramel. Flavor is lightly malty and very surprisingly hoppy through the finish. Medium-thin body. Nondescript, but very easy-drinking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Matly, not as hoppy as it could have been (but perhaps Iím subconsciously comparing this to Summit IPA). Aroma was minimal, but the mouthfeel and hop/malt balance was dead-on for a refreshing result. Not mindblowing, but the taste is worth a try.
On tap, this was like four parts Bells Two Hearted Ale mixed with one part water.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had it on draft yesterday at Bodega, so the small head may have been a result of the bartenderís pouring. Had plenty of lace and a nice reddish amber color. There was a nice fresh American hop nose. Nice body and quaffable; however, there was a distinct taste of iron in the middle that was very distracting. Itís a good session beer.

Cristal clear, honey brown in color with modest head. Light cookie dough and toffee aromas (not really much there). Flavor slightly sweet with a short finish. Light to medium body with light carbonation.
