3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tall can. Poured a one finger high head. Hazy, orange caramal color. Strong fruit citrus aromas the warmer this got. Was getting grapefruit, melon, orange, pineapple notes. Medium light bitterness. Average carbonation. Taste has more pine flavors with mild citrus hop and slight caramel notes. Pretty good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clearish, light amber coloured body with a copper tint and a decent two centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of metal, light hops, earth and a hint of sugars - not too much going on in the nose. Light-bodied; Grassy and floral hop bite at first with hardly any depth and no body - a bit of a metallic and earthy finish, but still no malt at all. Aftertaste, thin and grassy with some lighter hop notes, a bit of sweetness on the end from citrus fruit and very little else - no complexity at all. Overall, a sub-par IPA with no malt backbone, no complexity and only some herbal and grassy hops to speak of. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 02-April-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-April-2013.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from total wine, Naples. The pour’s amber with a small head. The nose is strong cheddar, red apple, plenty of caramel and soun sugar. This beer smells faded. The taste is more candy corn. Caramel-dipped orchard fruits. Mild grassy hops pm the finish pretty lifeless in the body. Fine carbonation. Overall, this beer is the absence of personality. Mind, I’d like to try a fresher sample.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clean stray yellow with one finger of sticky white head. Nose is meh, kind of muted. Very vegetal with a good bit of creamed corn and an odd sweetness. Definitely some DMS in here. Meh flavor, vegetal and weirdly sweet. Almost sharp on the palate with a weird slickness to the body.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber pour with a 1 finger, rocky off white head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops, lots of toast, cereal a decent amount of caramel. Flavor has lots of toast and cereal up front, some floury grain, planty, citrus and pine hops, light mineral notes and bready and fruity yeast. Fairly light body with a lightly dry, floury feel and moderate carbonation. Not bad, something about it reminds me of New Belgium beers, yeast maybe.
