2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Let me start off by saying that I sampled several beers from this brewer over the past weekend... and all of them taste the same (in a way). There’s an underlying burnt-rice flavor to all of their beers that I just can’t get past. Anyway, brownish with a small head. Malty nose, not overly hoppy. Flavor is burnt rice and malts... many more malts than hops, and this is not what i look for in a pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear glowing orange/amber with a nice frothy white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, peach, mango, papaya, fruit salad. Flavor of sweet juicy cocktail fruits, toffee, doughy, cotton candy, medium sweetness and light bitterness. Fairly drinkable. Medium/light bodied with nice even feeling mouthful, smooth sizzling uniform carbonation, not sticky at all.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden color with light head. Smooth with slight tinge of hops. Had a too much of a sour after-taste for my liking.

Bottle. Clear orange pour with a creamy, rocky (i.e. root beer float), lacing, tan head. Aroma is strongly, overwhelmingly hoppy, but that’s about it save for the light alcohol. Pleasant citrus taste, mildly hoppy. Thin body, not quite watery, but at least it’s crisp. Unbalanced. Overall, a simple, burgers-and-nachos beer, and the perfect keg party choice for Bloomington’s Greeks. I do like this, though.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a lightly hazy copper with a big puffy white head. Light tangerine fruity and hoppy aroma has some soapy notes to it. Body is overcarbonated and has some off-flavors. From a pineapple fruitiness to a dry bitterness, this beer just seems confused and far from style. Some acetone chemical flavor is noticeable as well. I suppose it's possible that I got a bad bottle.

Pours dark orange with toasted grain and malt aromas. Flavors og grassy bitter hops but faint and muted. A little thin and watery but the flavors that are there are nice they would just be better if more pronounced.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This brew poured a medium head of fine to large white bubbles and a transparent light amber body. It has a good lacing, a very mild malt aroma with a strong bitter start that lingers for a while then disappears in the finish with a somewhat acidic flavor.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy dark golden liquid with a taller fairly lasting ivory colored head. Scents of pale malt, touch of spice and I detect a hint of sourness and earthiness. LIght sweet start with a quick about face with some citric bitterness. Only a hint of the sourness I detected in the nose. Quite dry with a grapefruit and orange rind characteristic. The deeper I get into this one the more citric it get. If you like bitter citric brews this one is for you.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark gold pour. Aroma of malts and hops. Medium body with a nice caramel malt sweetness and decent hop bitterness. The only drawback is the distinct alcohol at the finish. The alcohol bite was way too strong for this type of beer and only being 5.1%.
