3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2013 12/13/13 Version: Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota and sampled at GTMW 2013 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy golden orange amber colored brew with a decent sized off-white head that has excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus and grassy hops, some earthy spices and a touch of caramel malt. Taste is medium bodied, some toasted caramel and English-style malts, grassy/floral hops and some earthy spices. Finish is semi-dry, with a more earthy hop aftertaste with some toasted caramel malt in the background. Nice to take a break form the citrusy Cascadian hoppy IPA for once.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Classic summit malt profile with a bit more added fruitiness compared to the piney apa. Has a little more hop presence. Decent enough.

16th August 2013
GBBF Day 4. Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Light semi dry palate. Floral malt. Touch of pithy grapefruit. Light hop spice. Finishes semi dry. Not bad, a bit mild despite the apparent freshness of the hops.

Aroma is fruit, grassy hops and a hint of candy/malts. The flavor is fruit/light berries, malts, slight nutty/earthy notes and a bitter/slightly tart finish. Not sure if it being a single hop/malt ale impacted the flavor, but it was a different and good EIPA.
