3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from the brewery brewed 6/14/10 consumed 7/28/10.
clear orange golden brown with a soft frothy off white head and clingy spots of foam.
it smells largely of pine.... also wet wood, citrus (especially orange) and spicy hops.
the flavor is quite similar... very dry and a bitterness on the finish.
crisp medium body. dry and very refreshing. 6/3/6/4/14/3.3

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light orange hue with a white head. Hoppy aroma. Flavor is pretty disappointing. It tastes like they took a good IPA, then watered it down so they could make a larger batch, haha! The slight malts and large hops I was expecting all taste too watery and ruins the beer. The finish is the same - instead of a strong, bitter finish you’re left with a ’blah’ hoppiness. Don’t recommend it for hopheads. 4% alcohol.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light, clear copper orange color with a foamy white head that stays well. Caramel and citrus hop notes and some light fruits. Pretty tame on the hop front in terms of the taste, and way too much of a malt balance for me. I mean, I get that it’s not trying to kill the palate, but a bit more is needed. Bit watery. Just OK.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper pour, creamy mostly white head. Aroma of christmas trees, grapefruit peel, honey and unripe stone fruit. Flavor has some up front malty sweetness followed by a light citrus bitterness and a bit or resin. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from a tourist trap in Bryce. Hazed orange-gold with a white head. Orange zest nose, lightly floral. Flavor comes off a tad sweet, but a decent citrusy hop hit on the back end makes up for it, trailed by a light caramel tone. Decent.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Short 12oz bottle. Pale light orange color, tall foamy white head. Aroma of honey citrus candle. Very floral and citrus dry hopped aroma. Very dry hopped. very floral. Flavor has a bit of a watered doen malt flavor. Very bitter, not much sugar or caramel notes detected. A bit disappointing as far as any flavors go. Finishes very watery and thin. Aroma is very welcoming, just no body or flavor. Boo.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was very much a let down. Citrus scent is there, a tad bitter but no depth. Very light in the pants.
