3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A sweet hoppy nose. Red pour, almost a cloudy amber. Nice lacing. Hoppy taste, almost reminds me of SNPA. Smooth palate. Too reminiscent of SNPA but without as much hops, though it was pleasing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark orange. Malty palate, defined with some hoppy bitterness up front that fades to a nice hoppy aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Despite the success of the Hopzilla on paper, I think the Red ale was probably my favorite all-around beer I had at the Table Rock. Very hoppy, while maintaining a good balance with the malt. The balance was really good here, making it a very drinkable. It was hard to place the malt, and after looking at the description it seems evident that it is due to the combination of malts. Well done.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very thin head dominates this very amber-brown ale, with very interesting lacing, which I was not expceting, I expected this to be boring, but it was actually pretty good. Very dry and slightly hoppy, with a nicely balanced malty sweetness in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A gold/red tint. This beer had a nice size head to it. What stood out to me was the dry pale finish, but nice and hoppy too. Enjoyable.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Floral hop smell. Opaque brown, good head and lacing. Perfect combonation of hops and malt, tastes like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Palate is nice and dry, but refreshing from the hops. Overall a good mix of sweet and bitter for this well rounded beer.
