Nice and hoppy with a slight caramel malt finish. Floral aromas and flavors are hidden amongst the other ingredients. Beautiful amber color.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Incredibly watery with some bitter hops. Soapy mouthfeel, not awful, but noticeable. Not terrible, but nothing I’d order again, even on $1 beer night

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Think of a fat tire clone. Nose is toasted biscuits, some malt, hops, and a bit of roasted malt. Color is a nice deep red color with a small soapy head. Tastes like roasted malt and caramel and has a medium creamy finish. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very defined aroma--musty, grainy, some caramel, a titch of citric hoppiness, relatively bold. Same color as their winter ale: caramel brown, only a hint of red, off-white (not cream) head. Very saazy, actually, a brisk hoppiness up front and a pronounced bitter finish, with notes of cigarette ashes. A mixed bag, some good, some not so good. (on tap, Greenville Ave., Dallas location)

Deep copper in color with a small off-white head. Sweet caramel malt aroms. Flavor is of caramel malt,fruit, sickly sweet overall.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light red color with white head. Tastes sour and bitter, but not in a good way.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Kind of a cool red-brown-purple color, absolutely clear. A muted cat urine aroma, like when Fluffy peed on a towel and you canít quite wash the smell out. Doughy, mildly tart, under-bittered, bland and a little watery. Aspirin bitterness accumulates on your toungue, followed by light malt nuttiness. Needs work.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured ruby amber with thin dense tan head...strong floral hoppy aroma and a little piney as well...a little malty up front, aggressively over hopped in the finish I think...makes sense for an APA, but I really donít like being tricked into thinking Iím going to be drinking something malty...
