3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear medium amber with a 2 finger creamy off white head that has excellent retention. Aroma is caramel, dried leafs, pine hops, some citrus, some sweet grainy malts. Flavor is caramel, toasted french bread, pine and citrus hops, cereal grains burnt sugar and pale malts. Finish is caramel and pine with maybe a little corn and a mild bitterness. Palate is medium to thin thickness with a slightly oily feel and slightly too low carbonation. This stuff is pretty nice, it has been a while since I have had it but this seemed better than it used to.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy dark copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is pretty light, more malt driven than then hop focused, which generally makes me sad for an APA. Fairly dry and toasty smelling. The flavor is much like the nose, very minimal bitterness, lots of toasty and dry husky maltiness. At least itís not all sweet and caramel tasting. Finishes very lightly bitter with mostly husky and grainy maltiness. Lighter bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation. Lingering, almost dusty and grainy malt finish. This one is a pretty big fail in relation to the style for me. This maybe should be considered a hoppy amber ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Winter Sampler 12pk.
Pours a cloudy amber, frothy off-white head, decent lacing. Some floral hops & citrus on the nose with a bready, caramel malt mixed in.
Taste has a nice balance of floral hop bitterness & creamy caramel malt. Great everyday beer, better than their IPA. Solid effort. Could see myself buying a 12 of this stuff.
