3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a dense and creamy white head. Mild fresh pine nose, very forest-like aroma. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, iced tea, and a heavy resiny finish. Not bad but the dryness and crystal malt compound each other and make the finish a little harsh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Amber, slight haze, strong frothy head, off-white, nice lacing. Fresh hops on the nose.   Yeah, that pretty much covers it.   Perhaps faint resin or citrus zest, but minor.   Freshly squeezed hop juice up front, mild to moderate sweetness, not too bitter while remaining flavorful.   Falls a tad flat on the tongue tho, could use a little more lively carbonation, but other than that its tasty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft hops linger.   A nice flavorful fresh hop beer, without being overly biting.   Could use a little more carbonation tho.

Nose is leafy and danky with some citrus and caramel malts. Pours amber, decent lasting head, a touch of lace. The flavor is caramelly, doughy with fresh leafy hops both fruity and danky with a fresh snappy bite in the finish. Well put together just not remarkably interesting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, golden orange pour. Caramel malt heavy IPA, lighter notes of pine. Probably not imbibed as fresh as brewers intended but decent flavor but hops were dominated by caramel maltiness. Ok

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep copper and bronze coloured body with a thick, six or seven centimetre tall tan head - ridiculous! Aroma of light earthy and slightly floral hops, some light caramel and toffee and a hint of maltiness - fairly light. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal hops up front with hints of pine, earth, flowers and a bit of toffee sweetness on the end. Aftertaste shows well with a hint of alcohol, a nice hoppy flavour that isn’t overly powerful and a good sweetness. Overall, a nice beer to try that probably was a bit hoppier when it first arrived here in Alaska! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Brown Jug in Anchorage, Alaska (Northern Lights Blvd) yesterday on 22-May-2013 for US$6.95 sampled in my hotel room here in Anchorage, Alaska on 23-May-2013.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 Bottle, 2011: Deep orange hue with a tightly packed, frothy head. Orange-like nose. Bright. Super smooth and creamy up front; crisp and sharp in the finish. VMalt flavors have mild hints of caramel, toffee and toast. Very snappy and pungent hop flavors -- resinous, nutty, green and gamey. Bold, peppery-grassy bitterness. Tasty fresh hop ale, but more bitter than most. 2012: Earthy-sweet, cakey malts. Grassy-floral hops. Moderate, balanced bitterness. Tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazed gold with a frothy, rocky beige head that lasts a long time. Aroma of mostly tropical fruits and little pine. Taste is on the less bitter side than more bitter, still a nice bitter finish, kind of herbal. Pretty good beer but kind of lacking.
