3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Greg. I think. Either way, he is pretty swell, so I will give him credit here. Hopefully this was from Joe. Suck it, Redner. Amber orange body, slightly hazy. Small, tight dirty white head that has some decent retention and light lacing. I like the color on this one so I will bump the appearance up a bit. Citrus fruits, floral hops, grapefruit hops, caramel and some malty notes make up the interesting nose. Flavor profile is pretty dead on with the nose, with the floral hops taking center stage to my palate. Medium bodied with some good carbonation that makes it feel heftier than it probably is. Finish is medium length, caramel sweet and floral, with a touch of citrus bite. Good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks to J! Pours nice clear amber. Aroma: toasty, well-lagered - clean and crisp in the aroma. Some sweet caramel, stone fruit. Really nice. Taste: moderate sweetness, light bitterness in the finish, short crisp finish. Light body, average carbonation, crisp texture. Overall: not usually a style I'm crazy about, but this is really well executed and tasty.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour from a 22 oz bomber. Cloudy amber brew with rich thich head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, green fruit. Taste is rather plain - a little sweet caramel at the start followed by a bit of green fruit and just enough bittering in the finish to offset the sweetness. Overall OK but rather lackluster.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours amber with some light coming through and nearly no head to speak of. The aroma almost has an apple characteristic to it, maybe a bit of caramel, light floral presence. The taste is sweet malty, a bit of apple comes through again, not much hop to it but it is easy to drink. Would prefer it less sweet but this is ok in the style.
