3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Barcade. Not quite as pale as I would like. Good, though. Perhaps I wasn’t expecting such hop/malt balance and it threw me off. I’ll need to try this brew again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
KSBF. I believe they were pouring this out of 750ml bottles. Poured a medium to deeper golden / amber color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of fresh hops - pine & grass with some caramel. Tastes of lighter hops (didn’t have that fresh, green hoppiness) - grass and pine with caramel. Lighter bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Victory. Big carbonation on a clear amber. Modest, beige head. Big sheets of lace. Feels like IPA in nose and body. Sticky, resinous hop nose. Nutty hoppiness in the body, sappy, pine. Very east coast IPA in profile. Good stuff.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at d. b. a. Clear golden beer with a thin white head. Aroma is fairly malty and sweet, some earthy/dusty malts with a bit of sulfurous yeasty character as well. Flavour is decent but quite sweet. Bready malts, some toast and sweet honey flavour. Slightly oxidized flavour and I really don’t know where the hops are in this… I’d take the harvest pils over this any day of the week.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orangy coppery pour with medium head. Malty aroma with a hoppy floral and fruity smell. This one reminds me a lot of the Manayunk wet hopped brew, with the caramel malty flavor backed up by an earthy, sort of fruity yet peaty hop, as such. Complex and well balanced, I had several pints of this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Barcade. Pours a clear orange with just a hint of haze and a thin beige head. Spice, light esters, little bit of DMS. Medium, but a bit thin, light maltiness. Finishes with a light bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler. From Consumers Beverages. Pale clear gold, average white head and decent lace remnants. Mild but appealing grain aroma, dry herbal/resin bitterness - (7-). Taste is solidly bitter, with a fresh but dry floral/cereal malt backbone - not aggressive, but the bitterness lingers quite a long time. Light-bodied, a bit astringent, solid carbonation considering the tight-sealed growler has been in my fridge for 10 days! - crisp and clean, I will buy this again - well done, Victory.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught [Growler] from Consumer Beverages. Pours a clear bubbly gold with an average size lasting foamy white head. Decent lacing. Hoppy aroma (citrusy and floral) along with some grain, fruit, tea and backed by caramel malt. Flavour of lots of fresh resiny hops, citrusy and floral again, lightly toasted caramel malt, tea and a bit of fruit. Quite dry with a nice bitter finish. Good carbonation, not too much or too little. Average bodied. A fresh, easy to drink, hoppy session beer -- good stuff!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11/19/11. On tap. Clear amber pour with a frothy khaki head that cuts in half but sticks and laces a teensy bit. Plenty of hop character in the aroma - a bit sour, musty, dank, and dry. Earthy flavor of green, dank hops with dusty pale malts, a bit of spicy hops, and a touch of lingering sour lemon peel. There’s a touch of something in the aroma and flavor that reminds me of plastic or something as well. Not bad, not great.
